The color and flower shape is much more typical of Phalaenopsis than Vanda. The growth habit is also more Phalaenopsis then Vanda, though these days you never know.

I would think, from the coloration and lip shape, that it might be a hybrid of Phal and Aerides, but beyond that, I don't have a guess.
