We had a fantastic stay at The Legend, our room was large and beautifully decorated, with a private outdoor seating area. The breakfast was one of the best we had in Thailand. The service we received was brilliant and we did the cookery course with the hotel chef which was fantastic. Chaing Rai is quite small and it is easy...

I really wanted this hotel to be great as the rooms and setting are so lovely but the service was so bad it really let it down. I should say that of you are using it as a base for sightseeing it would be a good option but for us we just wanted to relax for two nights as we'd...

Located a 10 minute tut tuk ride from the town centre this is a lovely riverside resort. Rooms include semi-detached bungalows with large airy bathrooms (some with a spa bath). Rooms were a good size and comfortable, although the bed was quite hard. Nice infinity pool with a view over the river. Very popular with large tour groups, which can...

The Legend Resort in Chiang Rai is a very elegant, peaceful and luxurious place that certainly holds a lot of appeal for a return visit.

Based on other reviews we booked this hotel for 2 nights the first week of November and were very satisfied! The quiet location on the river is nice but not within walking distance of shopping or other restaurants. The room was large and had a private spa next to the patio. The grounds are lush with topical plants and several...

We are well tavelled and have been lucky enough to stay in some exceptional hotels (and some very bad ones). Overall this place compares very well to the top end of the market.

A lovely hotel, magical view on the lake, rooms pleasant, huge shower room with separate toilet. The service at the restaurant leaves one to imagine that management is not keeping an eye on its employees.
