On current Xen, with stdvga=1 & videoram=16, resolutions up to 2048x1536x32 are possible. There's never been any 800x600 "hardcoding" for HVM guests in regular xen - even with the cirrus model, resolutions up to 1280x1024 are available. If the resoltion in Vista is "locked" to 800x600, that must be some distro-specific tweak.
All that said, the RDP suggestion is probably a better way to access the guest in any case.

Is it possible to increase the screen resolution of my xen guest Win Vista?

No, it's hard-wired (well, hard-coded) to 800x600.

You're much better off using RDP (remote desktop).
