Gokarna Forest Resort is a very nice quiet place to stay away from the noise of Kathmandu. Rooms are large, the staff is friendly and helpful, and the breakfast buffet is extensive. We were warned to keep windows locked because of the possibility of monkeys entering. The free wi-fi was only available in the area around the bar.

I stayed there for a night. Very nice staff and service. Rooms are good and spacious. The best part about this place, is that it is away from the hustle bustle of the chaotic city. Always request for a room in the main building if you don't prefer walking a lot, specially during the night Being a nature lover and... More

Had a fantastic 2 day stay at the Gokarna Forest resort . The ambience of the resort is a stark contrast to the chaos of Kathmandu and is really beautiful and well maintained. Also very well located, considering you feel like you're far away from civilization and yet are only about 20 mins away from the airport and about 9-10kms... More

I have only good things to say about my stay at the Gokarna - four days of peaceful surroundings - amidst the chaotic environment of Kathmandu. I had great service the entire time, friendly and very professional staff. Played golf at the course and was pleasantly surprised at what a great layout it has. The 6 course dinner at the... More

Looking forward to a stay at this peaceful resort away from the bustle of Kathmandu but disappointed with the room in a block 10 minutes walk from the main Hotel, not ideal for returning in the dark. The room was not at all like those pictured on the website, would advise requesting a room in the main Hotel. Buffet meals... More

We were put up at Gokarna for 3 days for a conference. The resort is a little away from the city but is self sufficient. Has a golf course, a trek, can rent mountain bikes and bike in the property, spa, indoor pool etc. The service was exceptional! Very friendly receptionists and everyone there were very professional and made our... More

Definite go to place if you would like some peace and quiet around Kathmandu. The resort is located in the midst of a forest and has a lovely golf course. The food is quite good and the resort has 3 different restaurants which serve different cuisines. All the resort staff are extremely friendly and welcoming! Tashi dolma is a rock... More

Gokarna Forest Resort is about 45 minutes drive from central Kathmandu. So when you stay there, it is calm and quiet, not noisy like all the hotels in the city. The staff is very attentive, breakfast buffet is extensive, and the gift shop there is very large and has reasonable prices and a very nice staff that is sincerely interested... More

This is truly a beautiful property. Spent three days at this resort and cant wait to go back. It may be the best kept secret in Kathmandu. If you are looking for a unique property where you can relax, surrounded by forested hills and wildlife, yet be just a short taxi ride to any of the popular attractions in the... More
