This review is from someone who is not into fishing and appreciates the resort! I, along with my 6 year old, accompanied my husband to Gillhams in his dream trip. Gillhams is not your usual resort. Do not expect a lavish reception or restaurants. But they do have everything and you will feel completely comfortable. The lake side cottage we... More

The fishing at Gillhams would have to be some of the best fishing in the world. It's not like other places which you just catch and catch and catch, you need to work for your fish and when you do get a fish at Gillhams it is well worth the effort. The guides were all great, in particular LEE. He... More

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

After a complimentary bottle of water we had to find our own way to the accommodation struggling with our... More

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
