I spent two separate days here on a day ticket and had a fantastic time. Well worth the money.

It's a beautiful environment and great fishing but what really makes the experience is the guides. Their knowledge and hard work is unbelievable. Steve, Adam and John made the experience for us. Amazing knowledge but also just top blokes.

It was my second trip since the lake extension and i was very surprised, the lake extension was looking beautiful and you would never of guessed that it was only 6 months ago since my first visit

The new side of the lake has these very nice sun houses (if thats the right name) where you can sit in comfort without the strong sun hitting you all day, Just as we were leaving they were being fitted with lights and fans,

WIFI is brilliant all around the lake,

Again the fishing was good. the new guides were very helpful.

I will be returning very soon!

keep up the good work,

Only stayed here for 1 night last September. We are a family with 2 kids ages 8 & 10.
Spectacular location with amazing views all around.
Stayed in bungalow right next to the pool so this was great for me & my youngest son.
Hubby and oldest son spent most of the time fishing - of course!
Our stay was during the lake extension, so the water was very dirty.
Hubby managed to catch the first big Siamese Carp that they had seen in while so the guides were pretty happy to see that. And of course hubby was pretty impressed too! Our son caught a few Pacu as well so he was happy!
We would love to come back and stay longer next time so as to catch some more big fish like the Arapima and maybe do some day tours as well.
Definitely recommend this place and definitely will stay again!

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

We spent our first week in Thailand at this resort, the fishing lake is stunning and the bungalows are lovely with spectacular views.The staff and the guides can't do enough to help and our stay was fantastic. This resort is a good base if you want to visit other parts and islands around Krabi. There is an excellent choice of food at the resort. Our highlight was my partner catching 100lb Chao Phraya catfish.Thank you Gillhams for making our stay a most pleasurable one and I'm sure we will come back one day.
