The Legend Chiang Rai Resort & Spa


An authentic hideaway with breathtaking river views in Chiang Rai’s countryside.

The Legend Chiang Rai is nestled on the Mae Kok riverbank, away from the hum of civilisation in Chiang Rai just a mile away. Upon entering The Legend Chiang Rai, the first thing visitors notice is how rustic it feels. Decorated with local Lanna styling and teak wood that is found throughout northern Thailand, the simple beauty of the resort complements the breathtaking panoramic views of the surrounding mountains. This is the ideal spot for a breath of fresh air and respite in between exploring Thailand’s lively northern cities.

Slip into the resort’s infinity pool, which has stunning views of the Mae Kok River, for some downtime away from the clamour of cities. At Sala Rimnam, one of the hotel's two restaurants, you can listen to the distant ribbits of frogs as you dine on the riverside terrace, or take a seat by the open kitchen and watch as the chefs prepare your meal.

If you want to explore what Chiang Rai has to offer, a ten-minute tuk-tuk ride takes you right into the city where splendid temples await. You’ll find it hard to believe that these grand structures are so close by on your return to the tranquillity of The Legend Chiang Rai. The rooms are simple, in keeping with the traditional aesthetic, with white bedding and views of the gardens or the river. For your own uninterrupted river view, opt for a Pool Villa.
