We have recently got back from Gillhams fishing resort. This is my partners third time at the resort and my second. The lake has been extended adding to the beautiful surroundings. Fishing was a little harder this time around, but my partner still caught some stunning fish ( carp / amazon red tails ) and lost a few sizeable fish.
Gillhams is also an ideal base for sightseeing. On this occasion I went elephant trekking, which was brilliant. Staff and guides were great, there was a wide variety of food both thai and English. The swimming pool is lovely. All in all a great relaxing holiday we have already booked to go back next year.

Just back from Gillhams and one word sums it up - AWESOME !
The fishing was out of this world , with our party of 3 all catching arapaima over 300lb - wow !
The guides have excellent knowledge of the fish and the lake , cannot do enough for you and work tirelessly . The fish care is second to none.
Accommodation is lakeside location and of very good standard .
Food is fantastic , especially the Thai food so tasty and all freshly cooked .
Cannot fault the place at all and thanks to Stuart, Sean, Becky and all the guides for a fantastic holiday . Will definitely go back .
Any angler really wanting their string really pulled should give Gillhams a visit , a trip of a lifetime :)

This is a wonderful place to stay, and an extra bonus when a world record is made by a close friend catching a large Siamese carp. It is also a good base to travel to local town for shopping or local bars. Staff are very helpful, and the fishing guides provide useful advise and support.

This was our first trip to Gillhams Fishing Resort and what a trip it was.We arrived at night so were unable to see much of the grounds. Come daylight and we were greeted with the most stunning sight. The grounds and gardens are beautiful , then you cannot miss the fish as they welcome the new day by leaping all over the lake.The accommodation is clean ,tidy and more than ok also the pool was most welcome when the heat was too much.There is a good range of food and it was delicious.The staff from gardeners to cleaners and fishing guides are a credit to Gillhams and cannot do enough to please. The fishing was a bit slow due to the lake being extended but everyone still caught fish ,and what fish they were. If there is one piece of advice i can give it is listen to guides, these boys know there stuff. A special thanks to Chris, Jef and Nathan for all your help. Will we be going back ? Oh yes please.

Room Tip: Bungalows D and E are by the pool.

This was our 4th visit to Gillhams Fishing Resorts and every time we think it cannot be better than the last visit, but it always is!!!
This visit, my wife and I went travelled with both sets of our parents to celebrate some big birthdays in the family, so the men fished while the women relaxed around the pool etc, it was perfect for everyone.
As always the fishing guides went above and beyond to make this the best fishing experience ever. The fishing is out of this world, i dont believe there is anything that can get close to what Gillhams offers.
The food was great, the location is picture perfect and the fish size and species will blow you away.
If you like fishing (or even if you dont!) you will have the holiday of a lifetime at Gillhams.

This is a great place to stay for the keen angler or simply a place to base yourself for your trips in and around thailand

The fishing is out of this world, but understood you need to have some skill to catch the biggest freshwater fish in the world.

Food was good and rooms were nice and clean, but this is not the main purpose to stay here - it is all about fishing.

We got all the help we needed, and even more. Food and drinks were ordered and brought to us.

We will most definitely recommend this to everyone.

Thank you to the team at gillhams ! Good job

This is a great place to stay. The fishing is out of this world, and all the nice people that work here! Best of all, Jut who understood sibling rivalry and helped both our daughter and son to get fish, however with no guarantee :). Food was good and rooms were ok, but this is not the main purpose to stay here - it is all about fishing. We got all the help we needed, and even more. Food and drinks were ordered and brought to us. The pool was fantastic, and even the turtle George was great.

We will most definitely recommend this to everyone we know!
