Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This is a beautiful somewhat rustic resort on the banks of the Mae Kok River. The staff is wonderful and the manager Eric is present always checking to be certain everything is running smoothly. There are lights strung everywhere adding to the magic and mystery of the spot. The included outdoor covered breakfast is more that adequate and the staff makes a lovely cappuccino. There is a guitar player in the evening at the wine bar and another musician quietly playing the angkalung morning and evening. Most surprising was the excellent Italian restaurant onsite with a decent wine list, rather rare in Thailand. The infinity pool looks out over the river. I enjoyed a steam at the spa. My only complaint is like most of the beds we experienced in Thailand ours was rather stiff.

Great resort with lovely room. Beautiful grounds at the property. Included breakfast buffet was good and cappuccino bar was better. On site Italian restaurant was enjoyable. Our one meal there of bruschetta, spaghetti bolognese and gelato was very good. Recommend this resort!

We stayed at the Legend Resort for 3 nights in February during a four week trip to Thailand. The hotel is in a beautiful location overlooking the river and the grounds are attractive and well kept. The swimming pool is large and well designed, but a bit cold. Our Lanna Deluxe room was spacious and well equipped but not totally practical in some areas, eg. there are large lamps screwed to the top of the bedside tables resulting in little useable space. It also seemed strange to having all the storage space behind the bed. The staff were friendly and helpful although service at dinner one night was a bit haphazard with the wrong choice being served - probably a language problem. The buffet breakfasts were delicious with an excellent choice. We had dinner on two nights and enjoyed the Thai menu. As a previous review has mentioned, during our visit there were a number of large tour groups staying at the hotel. It certainly didn’t fit my definition of a ‘boutique resort’. Overall we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would certainly consider returning if in the area.

Dear aldman64, Thank you very much for choosing the Legend Chiang Rai as your Chiang Rai base. Great to hear that you enjoyed our tropical garden and swimming pool. Apologies for the mixed-up dinner order but happy to see that you enjoyed our food. Though we are a boutique resort we still accept some groups mainly from the US and Europe. We also need these to survive, but they generally do not disturb the atmosphere and usually have early departures. We are glad to see that you enjoyed your stay and may be coming back in the future. We would love to have you return.

We stayed here for a couple of days before our 2 week tour of Laos. We opted for a room with plunge pool which was lovely and spacious, great views over the river. The pools are not heated and we did not realise that the temperature in Jan was lowm20’s, but didnt spoil our stay here. We ate at the restaurant in evenings and ate at the buffet one night and a-la carte the next night and food was great. Visit the White and Blue temples whilst in Chaing Rai which are both amazing

Wonderful location, delicious food, helpful staff, excellent pool. Room was comfortable but with slightly odd lighting. When I stupidly left my passport locked in the room safe after checking out, they posted it on within two days and charged nothing.

Our stay here was fairly average. The room was nice but felt dated and could use an update for sure. There were dirty dishes outside our room when we checked in that still remained when we checked out. Our pillowcases were obviously laundered but were stained. The mosquitos are all over and they need to enhance the pest control. The signs in the room about the extra costs for water, soda, and snacks and the tape on all the in room snacks and sodas make it feel like you are in a 1 star hotel and plan to steal everything. Bring your own water and anything you'll need in the room for sure. One highlight was the ladies making breakfast were sweet and made a great omelette. Nothing horrible overall but nothing great.

Dear GuyAndGalOnTheMove, Thank you for your guest review. I am sad to see that you were not totally satisfied with your stay. I will make sure that we pay more attention to having dishes cleared. I am not quite sure what happened and you did not mention whether you just stayed one night or more, but I will make sure that we have a proper system to avoid such events. We provide daily 4 bottles of water per room. We regularly fog our extensive river side premises for mosquitos. I am glad to see that you at least enjoyed our omelette. Best regards, Eric and the Legend team

We stayed at The Legend for 3 weeks in October. Everything about it was excellent. Staff were very helpful and friendly, especially the general manager who advised us on getting around and the best places to see. Our room was clean, comfortable and well kept with a great view of the gardens. The hotel grounds are well maintained and a great place to relax in, with the pool area having a view over the river

We stayed here one night. The room was good size and clean. There is a pool and you can walk down to the river. There a large restaurant used by tour parties which only serves international cuisine. Then there a small restaurant at the side which serves local food of average standard. The hotel is fine for a one night transfer but for me, not for a longer stay

Dear donaldf673, Thank you for staying at the Legend Chiang Rai and for your review. Size is very much in the mind of the beholder. The Legend only has 76 rooms and villas, but it is located in a large tree clad area by the Kok River. We also have a lot of flowering plants and chirping birds. So, I guess one could consider it a large hotel if judging it by area though we are small in room count, compared to many of the other nice hotels and resorts in the area. The Legend has a small Thai restaurant with both outdoor and indoor seating as well as an Italian restaurant. Both of them serve a la carte. Though we largely cater to individual travelers, we sometimes have some groups and they will usually enjoy our sumptuous Thai and International buffet dinners served at our breakfast restaurant. This dinner option is also available for our other guests. In addition to our two other venues. Many of our guests have originally booked for two or three nights but end up extending their stays to enjoy the serenity of the resort as well as to use us as a base to explore this beautiful part of North Thailand. I was pleased to note that you enjoyed your room. I hope that you will consider returning and then take the time to explore our facilities. Best regards Eric and team

Our pool villa was so peaceful and relaxing we could have stayed forever. The staff try so hard and under the guidance of Eric the general manager will strive for even better highs. The restaurant is also fantastic, from local Thai, to Italian and even German, the menu is outstanding. The only draw back for us was the buffet breakfast plenty of it but just a bit of a cafe feeling.
