We enjoyed some great days cat fishing in Koh Samui last year and researched Gillhams as a great place to fish this year. We were completely blown away this is no ordinary angling resort the gardens and the setting is incredible, the 13 acre main lake is surrounded by some of the most stunning views of the mountains and natural...

Wow! What an amazing place. We spent a week here for the final leg of our honeymoon and it was the best place ever! Fab fishing, excellent environment, great guides, superb food and service (even bankside, so totally spoilt and no disturbing the fishing!). A family environment with everything you could ask for. They also arranged some trips and transferred... More

Travelled here with a friend for a long weekend and pretty much immediately wished that we'd put together a longer trip. The moment you arrive and stand in the bar / restaurant area and look over the lake, it's hard not to get excited - the place feels incredibly fishy, huge carp and mekong catfish are invariably crashing around on...

I really can't add much to what others have already said! Great fishing, friendly, helpful guides, beautiful grounds, and amazing scenery. The fish are healthy and treated well, which is great to see. We stayed here as a couple for 5 nights and loved it. The aircon in the rooms worked well, the food was fine, and the drinks were...

A great location and a fantastic setting. All the guides offered patience and a wealth of knowledge and they really made the stay memorable, really can’t thank John enough as with his guidance I had one of the best fishing experiences in years. I was very much a novice before I visited Gillhams so this fishery will suit everyone, thanks... More

My husband and I stayed here for 4 nights and wish we had of booked for longer. Both of us managed to catch some large fish and quite a few different species. I was originally only going to fish the mornings, but after the first day decided to fish all day as it was so exciting. The guides are fabulous... More

I highly recommend this resort if you like fishing. Even for a person with no fishing experience before , he/ she will still has high chance to get a big fish as there are experienced and helpful fishing guides . Timing does matter, although the fishing time for whole day session is from 7 am to 8 pm, in our... More

We didn't stay at the resort but fished a day ticket. My boyfriend fished and I didn't. I was able to use the pool and facilities which I thought was a great touch. The fishing was tough- my boyfriend didn't catch all day until 6pm when he hooked into the biggest carp we've ever seen! It was a 115 lbs... More

I spent two separate days here on a day ticket and had a fantastic time. Well worth the money. It's a beautiful environment and great fishing but what really makes the experience is the guides. Their knowledge and hard work is unbelievable. Steve, Adam and John made the experience for us. Amazing knowledge but also just top blokes.
