Location:The Legend Chiang Rai is located directly on the Mae Kok River, secluded from the city, yet within 5 minutes driving distance from the city center. The immediate environment is relatively undeveloped providing a tranquil, natural location ideal for a river resort & spa. The property gives a panoramic view to the near-by hills and mountains. The riverside across is largely undeveloped and preserved with large rain trees and lush vegetation.Accommodation:The resort features 76 lavishly appointed studios and villas offering king size or queen/single beds, designed to allow for maximum connection with the environment, opening up to nature – yet providing uncompromising comfort.

Dear Diana N Thank you for staying at The Legend Chiang Rai and for taking the time to post your Review on Tripadvisor - and also for your kind comments of course. I am glad that you enjoyed your stay at The Legend. Located in 7 acres of Riverside Parkland, The Legend is designed to be an oasis of nature, and as you discovered, situated only a leisurely 20 minutes stroll from the centre of town. The Legend is a great place to relax and unwind, whilst getting a taste of real Lanna Northern Thai Culture and experiencing nature. Thank you once again for staying with us and for your kind comments. Please do let me know if you ever plan to return to The Legend or have any friends staying with us by contacting me on gm@thelegend-chiangrai.com

The Legend has a great setting on the river; it is a peaceful place with beautiful rooms and grounds, and a lovely pool. It is walkable to town (about 20-25 mins) and they do run a shuttle (not free) in the evening. That said, just know that there arent other food options

Dear Nhandsea Thank you for staying at The Legend Chiang Rai and for taking the time to post your Review on Tripadvisor. And thank you for a positive Review. I am glad that you enjoyed your stay with us. Comments of all kinds are welcome as it is only by being able to see ourselves as our Guests see us that we are able to improve and your comments regarding the Breakfast pastries have been noted and will certainly be followed up. Opinions on pricing can be subjective of course, but overall I think you will find our Food and Beverage prices are competitive and reasonable for a Hotel of this standard in Chiang Rai, although of course Hotel prices do not necessarily always reflect the local Market Rates and essentially tend to be higher as a result of the enhanced facilities and Team remuneration levels. Thank you once again for staying with us and thank you for your comments and overall very positive Review. I do hope you may be able to return to Chiang Rai again and if you do plan to return or have any friends or relatives staying with us please contact me direct on gm@thelegend-chiangrai.com

Dear William1974603 Thank you for staying at The Legend Chiang Rai and for taking the time to Review us on Tripadvisor. Yes, you are correct. The Legend is a great jumping off point for Chiang Rai and so many of the surrounding attractions. Nestled in 7 acres of beautiful, riverside gardens but only 20 minutes walk from the centre of town, the location is perfect. I am sorry you were disappointed with our Breakfast but we are in the process of a complete overhaul and are even talking with a local cheese supplier to provide more "authentic" cheeses to the Buffet for the enjoyment of our European guests. I do hope you will be able to return to The Legend one day - hence the offer of a special rate for returning Guests. Thank you once again for staying at The Legend and should you consider returning, or have any friends or relatives visiting us, please do Email me direct on gm@thelegend-chiangrai.com

Nestled in lush green garden along Kok River, our room is on the second floor. The room is spacious and clean. Beds tied with mosquito net look romantic and inviting and we did have very good sleep. Bathroom and toilet are separate and the washing basin is at the dressing area.

Dear tapaneec2017 Thank you for Reviewing The Legend on Tripadvisor. Your comments are noted. We are currently in the process of upgrading our Breakfast Buffet with a view to making it more attractive to the majority of our Guests - Europeans. Among other areas we are working with a local Cheese provider to add more "authentic" cheeses to the Buffet and I do hope that if you are able to return you will notice an upgraded Breakfast Buffet experience.You are correct, we are only 20 minutes walk from the centre of town and located strategically for so many local sights of interest and yet "in a world of our own", set in 7 acres of lush, riverside parkland. Thank you once again for reviewing us on Tripadvisor - and of course for staying at The Legend. I do hope you will be able to return and if you are able to do so, or have any friends or relatives visiting please do contact me on gm@thelegend-chiangrai.com.

A comfortable resort which is a short stroll from centre of the city. Very scenic setting with nice pathways and well kept grounds. Lovely ponds throughout the property. The bed was comfortable but the rooms seems a little dated. Good restaurants overlooking the river.

Dear snworb Thank you for taking the time to review The Legend on Tripadvisor. Your comments are welcome and noted. The Legend has been built to accommodate the natural environment as much as possible rather to replace it, and the emphasis is on giving Guests a truly "natural" experience. Your comments regarding the rooms are noted. Obviously, opinions regarding style are mainly subjective and some Guests prefer the current style but we are currently undertaking a "rolling" programme of renovation to the rooms. Thank you for your very positive Review and I do hope that you will be able to return to The Legend one day. If planning to return, or you have any friends or relatives visiting us, please do contact me on GM@thelegend-chiangrai.com

Yes, yes and yes in answer to your questions. It’s a lovely place to stay. You can walk into town in about twenty minutes or get the free shuttle bus.

Could you please tell me how much you charge for non-guests to use the pool area for the day? Thanks.
I was only there for one night and had no issues. Everything went well. You may just want to call a taxi.
