Stated here for two nights during for long weekend exploring Chiang Rai. The location by the river is superb, lots of fresh and and quiet. The hotel and the rooms are beautifully designed.

A very good place, near the river with autenthic Lana architecture. Professionnal service, great breakfast buffet. Near the center, you will enjoy and relax at the swimming pool. A plus point for the bathroom, big place. Wi-fi, shuttle to night market. Quality wine and nice Italian restaurant or Thai Buffet, you will enjoy for business or vacancy trip.

We stayed here for 4 nights. It was a great base to explore Northern Thailand. We stayed in 2 different rooms (we added a night so had to change). Both were very spacious, comfortable and fitted out with everything you need. The main hotel restaurant has a good variety of food options. Breakfast is generous. The hotel has a travel... More

This place was exactly what we wanted and expected. First, the staff was incredibly kind, from the airport pickup to the wait staff in the restaurant. We had a deluxe bungalow and it was huge and felt like no one else was around. The swing on the sitting porch overlooking the big pond was an added extra. Best of all... More

The Legend Chiang Rai was incredible!! Rooms were very nice and clean! All the modern amenities you could ask for! The restaurant was very good! Great view of the river! Breakfast is included, but the other meals are a bit pricey. Infinity Pool was awesome! Service was fantastic as well! No complaints here! This resort was Legen...wait for it...dary!!

Located a few minutes from downtown, The Legend is a peaceful oasis located on the river. Spread around a lushly landscaped compound of two story buildings, it's quiet, and peaceful.

Very large spacious quiet resort. Rooms large and clean and something a little different from what you normally see which I liked. We prefer to walk so everything was accessible but if you don't like to walk because it is quite isolated it may be hard to get transport. I enjoyed my stay here and it was very reasonably priced.
