Vanda coerulea orchid is a medium to large sized, warm to cool growing, monopodial epiphyte, which can reach 75-150 cm long and 50 cm wide, with very stout stems carrying coriaceous, ligulate, distichous, conduplicate, obliquely tridentate apically leaves. The leaves are 8-25 cm long and 2.5 cm wide. They are usually yellow-green, with deep grooves on the upper surface, have a bulge on the underside, and their tips are unevenly distributed. Leaves growing at the bottom fall after a few years.  This Vanda species blooms in the fall on an axillary, erect or suberect, 2' (60 cm) long, laxly few to several flowered inflorescence with long-lasting flowers. The flowers are extremely variable in size, shape and colour. Typical petals of both whorls are pale blue with darker veins forming the mesh. However, they can also be dark blue, white or even pink. Darker lines are not always present. The small lip usually has a very dark purple-blue central plot with whitish side plots. The inner whorl flakes are often twisted and consequently the bottom surface is facing forward.
