The Legend Chiang Rai is a grand riverfront Thai Lanna-styled resort that lies along the Mae Kok River. It perfectly blends its traditional teak-based architecture with modern touches for a contemporary yet classic feel.
The property offers panoramic views of the atmospheric nearby mountain ranges while incorporating the lush vegetation of northern Thailand throughout the hotel grounds, with tree-shaded pathways, lotus ponds and flower-filled gardens right down to the riverbank.
The room range, from superior studios to deluxe two-bedroom villas, is designed to be harmonious with the resort’s tropical surroundings. Rooms are designed in the Lanna style with gentle, warm woods and clean, crisp textiles and come with a spacious open-sala living area. s The semi-outdoor tropical bathrooms in the typical Thai style are a nice touch.
Despite the old-school architecture, rooms come equipped with air conditioning, satellite TV, and tea and coffee making facilities.
Alongside the serenely flowing river, the freeform infinity pool provides a stunning spot to take a dip, while the open-air spa offers the perfect setting to unwind in the tranquil environs. The expert masseuses provide a full range of traditional Thai spa treatments.
Set against the river backdrop, the Sala Rimnam restaurant features an inviting terrace with a relaxed ambience. Delicious meals are made in the open kitchen for guests to view. The menu offers a wide variety of delectable selections, including a selection of dishes cooked on the outside grill using both Western and Thai cooking techniques in modern and inventive presentations.
Other options for evening entertainment include La Case restaurant, an Italian restaurant and wine bar, and Suan Chainam, a cocktail bar, once again making the most of the river views with a wonderful garden terrace.
