The Legend Chiang Rai
Ranked #5 of 108 Hotels in Chiang Rai
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 23 March 2014

Our stay at The Legend in Chiang Rai was simply wonderful. The hotel is situated a bit away from the center, so it is calm and is located directly on a beautiful river. Just a short tuk-tuk ride and you can enjoy the liveliness of Chiang Rai. The hotel does provide free shuttle service to the night market, so take advantage of that. The room was large, clean a well-appointed, with a huge outdoor shower. There is a great large infinity pool lots of pool lounge chairs. The hotel and it's gardens are very clean and manicured. There are two restaurants, one is traditional Thai with outdoor terrace with views of the river. The service is very well-meaning and friendly. The other is an Italian restaurant and winebar, which I heard is quite good but I didn't have chance to try it. Eve at the front desk is simply amazing, with her ever present smile and professional attitude. The charming food and beverage director Honia, who is originally from Tahiti, was always there to make sure all the guests were happy, and is a great motivator for his staff. He is very genuine, you can see he really cares about his work.
I do hope to get back to Chiang Rai someday, and I will definately be going back to The Legend.

Dear guest,

Thank you for sharing your feedback about your recent stay at The Legend Chiang Rai.

Such a positive feedback is extremely valuable to us, I would agree that our location beside the Kok River creates a very relaxed and elegant resort atmosphere while being not too far away from the markets and buzz of the town of Chiang Rai. And while I also agree that we are the perfect location for a relaxing escape. Once again thank you and look forward to welcoming you back to Chiang rai soon.

Best regards,
Suchaya T.

we stayed 3 nights. All the staff was really nice and welcoming. The hotel is in a middle of a lush garden with huge banana trees and ponds. The bedroom we had was quite large with a very comfortable bed and a separate "open air" shower room . very clean and quiet.
The Thai restaurant is in front of the river , delicious and spicy ..
We didn't have the chance to try the wine bar although the wine list looked interesting.
The spa is very clean too, the massages are high quality.
This was 3 days of relaxation in the nature.

Stayed here for 2 nights and really enjoyed it. The room was beautiful and looked out onto water, we had an outdoor sitting area which was very private and quiet. The bathroom was very large with an excellent shower. The staff were very friendly and helpful, we ate here both nights and the food was very good.

Me and my wife spent just one night in this hotel during our honeymoon.
It was very comfortable:
wide room, clean and well equipped.
Shower is in a separate room, very spacious!
Bedroom was nice, with a beautiful canopy bed.
The hotel is absorbed in the forest and looks very zen :)
Also restaurant is under the trees and we ate very well.
Recommended !!

Being a couple French-Chinese, we had our 3 days wedding celebration in the Legend Chiang Rai Boutique River Resort and Spa with close family and friends. It has been an amazing experience.

Some of the guests arrived earlier, to visit the surroundings, and some even extended their stay as they have been completely charmed by the place. Indeed, the resort is very quiet, located just on the border of the river, the rooms are very comfortable, the entire resort is well taken care of, the food in both restaurants is very good and tasty and the staff is mostly very friendly and helpful (we really feel the sense of service of the staff).

Speaking of staff, we would like to give a special thanks to the 2 ex Club Med GO Hoania and Eve. They did more than the extra mile for us to feel at home and they always kept smiling even when we were having last minute requests and being stressed by the wedding. They were even foreseeing our requests, a big + for the wedding preparation...
They have been the key component of the success of our wedding.

We had also massage a couple of times, and most of our guests did as well, it was very nice having the thai massage outside facing the river. You could find it a little bit pricey vs outside massage locations, but isn't it priceless to be facing the beautiful river, having the sound of nature around you, and not being obliged to get a taxi or tuk tuk right after being so peaceful and relaxed ?

In summary, it has been the perfect place for the most important day of our life. And more than us, it is the guests, all of them, who have been dithyrambic about the resort and our wedding celebration.

We stayed 3 weeks at a pool villa at the Legend and we enjoyedthe at the resort
It was exactly what we were looking for and we enjoyed every single minute at The Legend.The hotel is run a discreet but very efficient way and we could always feel how the staff stands behindthe GM.

Below a short list of the positive points according our feelings:

- Location and design of the resort
- Generous setup of the pool villa
- You feel in the countryside despite the short distance to town
- Tranquility within the resort
- Maintenance and cleanliness of rooms, garden and other public facilities
- Variety and quality of food in both restaurants
- Legendary Thai attitude of your well trained, helpful and attentive staff
