“a lovely hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 April 2014

we spent only one night in this hotel and greatly appreciated the comfort and idyllic setting after a long tiring journey.The rooms, spacious and very well furnished, are set in beautiful tropical gardens. Fountains, pools and stautes in abundance. There is a lovely pool with jacuzzi to relax in before enjoying Happy Hour cocktails in the pretty gardens. ( Be prepared for mosquitoes.)
We had a delicious dinner on the terrace overlooking the river, and the breakfast buffet is real 5* standard. We would have liked to stay longer.

We only stayed one night en route for Laos. Perfectly pleasant hotel. Large room and especially large shower area. Nice patio. Great view of river. Big swimming pool but we didn't have time to sample it. Equally we never ate here but went for a walk into town to a pleasant restaurant. Hotel was very good in providing a packed breakfast for an early departure the next day.

We loved this hotel! We got there near the end of our 19-day trip in SE Asia, and we were ready for some luxury and relaxation. It was perfect, short of being on the beach. Our room was a villa, a duplex I think, although we never heard of saw anyone next door. A lovely porch with a swinging sofa, a great huge shower room larger than all of my closet combined! Lovely grounds, on the river, with a gorgeous pool and chairs to relax. A beer garden in the afternoons down in front of the restaurant. Decent selection for breakfast, we didn't eat at the dinner buffet--it was pricey I thought. We did try their Italian a la carte restaurant, and it was very nice I thought.

The hotel is a bit isolated from the city, so it's a tuk tuk ride away. We took the free shuttle down to the night market one evening, and a tuk tuk home--no problems.

This a relaxed resort, not plastic. But it's very well run, the staff were all super great. All in all a great stay.

Located within walking distance to night markets, restaurants & city bus, but far enough to walk the streets where Chiang Rai residents live. Come to Chiang Rai to meet the people & get a feel for it's life and culture. I fun area to jog. Safe to walk at night. Please don't miss taking the local's bus to the White Temple, Wat Rong Khun. It's very inexpensive, the bus is old, but it works. Don't worry about the bus stop because if you think you'll miss it, the woman that colects the fare will let you ahead of time that it's time to get off the bus. When you return the bus stop is easy to find. You can wait for the large blue bus or hop on the blue pick-up truck bus as well for 30 baht. Stand on the bumper for a fun ride.

Located a little bit far from the city center offers a great atmosphere for night drink. The pool looks great as well.
The breakfast was good. Not that great selection, but you can enjoy a great sunrise from the terrace with great view over the river.
The room had the furniture a little bit outdated, but in a good shape. The matress is hard, but this is no surprise.
Decent selection of TV channels.
I would recommend the hotel for a short stay to visit the surroundings of Chiang Rai.

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.
