Gillhams is a one of those travel "treasues" you come across very occasionaly. It is not your touristy, on the beach hotel and we were thankful for that. It is a little bit of heaven nestled in fantastic scenery, very private yet very casual. You get to know all the other guests by first name, nothing is too much trouble, the accomodation is perfect, lush gardens, pool, lake views. Although set up to entice anglers from around the world you don't have to fish but you will find it hard to resist giving it a go. Food is great. Gillhams is like being at your friends home - so relaxed. Our other travelling companions booked to stay on the beach in a hotel at Au Nang but enjoyed being with us at Gillhams. We hired a car for our week stay or the resort can take you where you want to go. The owner, Stuart, and his staff are so easy going - it was a very pleasurable stay and most highly recommended.
