Its very rare when you visit an attraction, hotel or restaurant and a) you cant fault it and b) everything surpasses your expectations.
The lake accomodation and landscaped gardens were outstanding, the bungalows are modern clean have fantastic views of the lake and have powerful air conditioning.
Gardens and surrounding were immaculate - if a leaf fell the gardeners picked it up immediately.
All the staff both thai and english were polite happy and helpful.
The bar restaurant area was reminiscent of a planters colonial house and really couldnt be faulted. Food was a mixture of english and thai (with some australian thrown in too).
The fishing itself was beyhond our expectations both my wife and I are novice fishers and caught amongst other things a 70lb plus carp each.
Our guide John was outstanding, explaining all that we needed to do and showing great patience in our instruction, which paid off with some super fishing.
We are normally pretty critical but quite frankly the whole experience was outstanding
We would reccomend this to any one from a novice to expert, we hope top be visiting again soon
