We spent 3D2N at the resort during our 5-day holiday in Krabi. Finding this resort on the number 1 list in Krabi on tripadvisor was the reason why we flew in from Singapore. We were a little disappointed that we didn't get a single fish the first two days despite the team from Gilhams offering help with changing baits regularly. With their expertise, my hubby finally landed a 80-90lbs mekong on the third day!
Rooms wise, they were decent and sufficient for my family of 5 with a queen bed plus twin bed configuration. Typical chalet style so not quite worth the price. Lots of mosquitoes but rarely bite. Water pressure was low. TV signal was weak. Thankfully my kids had their ipads to keep themselves busy. They love the swimming pool and the scenic view too.
Excellent wifi all around the lake and resort.
Restaurant serves home style thai dishes. We didn't try the western food although there were a number of choices. Ala carte breakfast was ok but omelette was more like a dinner dish than breakfast egg. Delivery service in takeaway boxes is available for anglers and those who prefer in-room dining.
Transfer service provided. Our airport to resort transfer in a passenger van was prompt but the driver was unsure of the location of the resort and took us beyond our destination before realising his mistake. Gilhams Resort to resort in ao nang transfer in a private luxury vehicle and the driver was very nice and friendly.
Overall a great experience that we will rave about to our friends. Everyone including the guests at the resort were friendly and greeted one another. It was easy to make friends because most of the people at the resort had a common interest. It is a common sight to see neighbours helping one another. A pleasant place, incredible experience!
