I have switched to Gokarna Forest Resort from another hotel (after one night). Actually I have found here everything I have missed in previous one: calm place, helpful staff (always smiling), amenities you need (good internet, golf, pool, sauna, 2-3 options for dinner). It was like my secret place after hard working day without a necessity to go somewhere outside.... More

Set in a tranquil forest just 10km out of the city the resort offers everything you need to chill out and relax. The rooms are enormous and well appointed. The facilities including top... More

From my observation over 7 years of travel to Nepal, Gokarna Forest Resort is the best 5-star property in the country. I work in the hospitality business across the Middle-East and this hotel has nothing less than the luxury properties available in the Gulf. From the warm welcome from the front office staff to the amazing buffet breakfast, it was... More

My husband (Jose Ortiz) and I (Stephen Parelli) stayed two weeks in August of 2014. It was a time share exchange. This was our second time to stay at this resort. Our August 2014 visit was perfect. The service was excellent: when we asked for much need extra padding for the beds, they provided. (Beds are way too hard, but... More

Gokarna Forest Resort is nothing like I have experienced before. A real retreat for me and a natural resort for my son. You encounter with monkeys and deers especially at night, take a jungle walk in the forest and feel rejuvenated.The hotel is far from hustle and bustle of the city, you feel quietness and full of serenity in the...

We stayed a week in this wonderful resort from 30/8 till 5/9/2014, the room was old but well maintained , the view to the garden is wonderful especially on Saturday where BBQ lunch was held. Big trees surrounding and golf course's greenery make the property ideal for honeymoon vocation or relaxation. The services and hospitality are absolutely wonderful special thanks... More

Serene and quiet - a perfect place to relax. What took me by surprise was the room. It was really very nice and comfortable. The large spacious room was simply in tune with the serene relaxing atmosphere. Absolute thumbs up to the management and the team where I could not find anything lacking in the rooms and the "eco" touch... More

This property has good facility for conference & workshops. Staff are very hospitable and co-operative. Large golf ground is attached which is much more exciting. Bar and restaurant looks good. If you are staying for more than 3 days then try food at different locations in Nepal as the food part sometimes looks more repetitive, except for lovely and yummy... More
