Since my first trip to Gillhams in 2010 I've been back every year, the fishing is out of this world with a real chance of catching your own 'River Monster'. The scenery and wildlife are stunning, the restaurant has an extensive menu of Western and Thai dishes and the lakeside accommodation is lovely. There is a beautiful swimming pool which... More

My partner used to go to France a couple of times a year fishing. Although I enjoy visiting him & staying in the bivvy on our local waters, France never really interested me. "Why can't you fish somewhere sunny?" I often asked. When his mate suggested Gillhams Fishing Resort in Thailand I was so excited & we booked straight away.... More

I stayed here for two weeks in December and have to say this was one of the best holidays I have ever taken, The fishery is set in the most stunning location and the quality of fishing more than matches that, The grounds around the lake and bungalows were immaculately kept and the bungalows well fitted all with wonderful views...

We had children and they were obviously an annoyance to her... They have caged monkeys and she was explaining that kids cannot try to... More

Gillhams Fishing Resort is a dream for anglers. The lake is set in beautiful surroundings and the variety of fish is unparallelled to any other venue. Imagine being in with a chance of catching a world record during your fishing session. The guides are really friendly and ensure you have the best conditions to catch your target fish. The standard... More

Gillhams is one of those fisheries that every angler should add to his bucket list of places to fish before he dies. Beautifully landscaped lakes set in stunning surroundings with knowledgeable and attentive staff. The size of the fish the lakes contain will take your breath away. Sadly I only managed to book for one day, but I'm already planning... More

Excellent location and great staff to ensure everything is perfect. We stayed here for 5 nights but only fished 2 days and just used it as a base for Krabi on the other days. Going through my diary to arrange my next trip!!
