Gillhams Fishing Resort....Scenery and Accommodation.

Gillhams Fishing Resort, Krabi.
Part One....the Scenery!
This winter season we are aiming to increase our freshwater fishing efforts. Three of us have just returned from our first visit to Gillhams Fishing Resort in Krabi which is a 2 hour gentle boat trip away from Chalong where I am based. 
 The first thing that smashes into your mind is the scenery. This is when adjectives such as 'amazing', incredible' or 'stunning' are just mere gibberish. This place is something very special...I cannot see how Stuart Gillham (or anyone else for that matter) could have chosen a more spectacular setting and to have had the vision and range of skills to have created what can only be described as an anglers' paradise takes a very special person indeed. I know how hard it is to do the simplest transaction here in sunny to pull off something as amazing as this must have demanded every ounce of patience, perseverance, diplomacy and unswerving belief that anyone could possible call upon within their own character. This really is an amazing achievement and one that Stuart and all those involved in it can be justifiably proud.
 There's a good sized pool set above the fishing lake and just behind the accommodatiuon bungalows. My photographs cannot do this place justice in terms of its surroundings...but to just stay in pool and look at what's all around you would be a good holiday in itself!
 The bungalows are all immaculate and are set up in such a way as to give a degree of flexibility to the required booking. There's one bedroom with a large double bed and a second bedroom with two single beds. Each room has fridge and A/C etc with shared W/C facilities. If, for example, just one room were to be required, then the second room can be isloated and the charge made for the area rented as opposed to the whole bungalow. With three of us, we took the whole bungalow for our use.
The bungalows have their own verandas looking out onto the surrounding Karst formations and dense greenery. The gardens surrounding the bungalows and lake are kept immaculate by the Thai staff...fabulous.
