“Magnificent Gillhams Resort”
Reviewed July 20, 2008

.Gillhams is actually a world class fishing resort, set amongst stunning scenery and a few minutes away from Krabi town an the tourist "strip" of Au Nang.

We had hired a car in Phuket and thought we would try out the resort where my wife would sit, read and relax whilst I would have a go catching a few fish. We used Gillhams as a base to travel about which was much easier than I thought it would be with excellent roads and light traffic.

I wish now that we had stayed for the whole ten days of our vacation at Gillhams. The accommodation alone was much better value than anything we came across in our travels. The place is brand new with lovely modern chalets set about a magnificent lake and a soaring mountain backdrop.

The food was the best we have had in all our trips about Thailand and we ate with the family. You can have English or Thai food served when you want. They have an English and a Thai chef. A new restaurant is just about to open.

By the way, July is a great time to visit - the weather was good and it is a lot cheaper at this time of year. And I caught BIG fish as well!!

Nothing was too much trouble for Stuart, Benz, Sean and Noi who run the place. You can relax in the magnificent gardens and they will bring you a tea or a beer, handle the laundry and produce a top meal as if by magic.

Sean, Stuart Gillham's son runs the fishing and has several pets including a Slow Lorris and a Python - not in the same room though! Benz is Stuart's partner and is a delight, with the typical Thai friendly nature. She is a very classy lady, so we nicknamed her Mercedes. Noi looks after the housekeeping and everything is absolutely spotless!

We are missing the place already and are busy saving our pennies for next July.

All the best to Stuart and the crew at Gillham's.
