A very strange experience, mixed feelings as used to being at sea when catching the big fish, not in a lake filled with them. Some of the guides can be quite elusive and seemed to gather around some guests, more than others. Having to watch a meter regularly, to check our electricity consumption was excessive , considering its not a... More

We've been going out to Gillhams pretty much since it opened. After a few years away, we came back this year and it's better than ever. The rooms have been renovated with fresh bedding, beds, flat screen tv's, wardobes. The swims also have permanent salas in them now, with power and fans. Top marks Stuart- it's a credit to you...

Finally had the chance to stay here recently to target the fish that had eluded me on 3 previous trips to Thailand "The Arapaima". The scenery is absolutely stunning, the units were clean and comfortable and the swimming pool area one of the best Ive seen. During our 3 night stay the lake was fishing unusually slow. The day I...

I fished at Gillhams for 3 days with my partner. The food was good. A decent variety and served promptly. The room was very basic. For the price and compared to other fishing resorts I have stayed in it was below standard but OK nonetheless. The lake is beautiful and all of the guides were excellent. Some of the best... More

This resort in krabi province of Thailand got to be one of the best in the world. It is a man made lake of fresh water with many fishes of big size in it. All what you need for fishing is provided in the fishing package. The accommodation in it is excellent for the purpose. Food is excellent too.
