The primary reason to visit was for my partner to fish. He had 5 days fishing and we stayed for 6 nights. The accommodation was good and the veranda was nice for our 3 year old to play in the shade. While he fished we went elephant trekking and to ao nang for which on request a driver was organised.... More

We went here in April for my partner to fish and I could relax. We were met off the boat well over an hour late. on arrival at the resort we were met by a friendly guy and given our keys.

This is without doubt the best fishing place in the world. It was much better than we ever imagined it to be. Even the misses got into the fishing and Stuart was good enough to allow her to have a go on the small lake where she caught a 15 lb Pacu. I was able to catch many fish including... More

I stayed at Gillhams for 2 nights in April and it was fantastic. This was by far the nicest fishing lake I have ever been to. The lake was very well kept, offered beautiful mountain views, great service, friendly & helpful staff, they provided plenty of bait as well as pick-up and drop of service to and from the airport...

First trip to Gillhams I have to say was impressed, guides and staff really look after you here had a great few days visiting and will definitely be back. For this fishing you are just not going to find a selection of species and large fish all in one place. Some may disagree if there is then I have not... More

This rating is multi-faceted because our family of 5 (3 sons ages 9-13) stayed at Gillham's for a week and fished some of the time and used the resort to launch out for other excursions in the area. I am writing this review primarily for people with children who are thinking of staying there and doing a hybrid vacation of... More

My husband and I have just returned from 2 excellent days fishing at Gillhams which we incorporated into our 20th wedding anniversary Thailand holiday. We were both blown away with the whole experience. As a lady angler who had only ever caught sea fish up to 12 pound before, it was amazing to catch a 70 pound Siamese Carp that... More

We read every review available on this resort , prior to booking 10 days fishing. On arrival in Feb 2015, we were very apprehensive as it sounded too good to be true but believe me, it is very very true. Gillhams Fishing Resort is fantastic. It is great for fisherman who want to catch that big fish or who want... More
