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

We stayed at the Gokarna a couple times during our stay in Kathmandu, and it was a wonderful experience! The staff is wonderful, and the grounds are top-notch. The dining facilities are all great, and we enjoyed an evening of massages at the spa on the grounds. You cannot go wrong staying here!

Came in from India and was delighted to find this retreat. The room is huge and clean, the bathroom has a custom tiled tub/shower combination that is very inviting and the room's wooden floor seems so much cleaner than carpet. My bed is two doubles put together and made up as one - heaven! It is a bit out of... More

We arrived by Taxi (about $7) from Thamel in Kathmandu and It was like coming from the ridiculous to the sublime. The resort is beautiful, with tasteful decor all over, and every detail (almost) is perfect. The rooms are spacious and well decorated and appointed. We were warned to keep windows locked because of the possibility of monkeys entering and... More

Visited mid 2011. Totally loved it. The room was so spacious and the place is very calm. The staff is very friendly. Their food is delicious including their breakfast. Did not use their indoor pool but loved their spa. We also did the early morning forest walk and spotted some wildlife.

My wife and I stayed at Gokarna Forest Resort 4 days in October 2014. We enjoyed every minute! The staff was very service minded and friendly. The resort is nice and quiet, rooms where good (despite a little trouble with hot water..), and the forest guards kept the monkeys away from the outdoor breakfast! We enjoyed playing golf: The course... More

We spent three nights at this hotel in October 2014 before flying to Pokhara for a trekking trip and an additional night on November 6th upon our return trip from Pokhara. The setting is quite and the grounds are lovely, and we enjoyed nice rooms on both occasions. The rooms, though decorated nicely, are dark - there are many lights,... More

Very nice location. The suites on the top floor (at the end of a spiral walk-up) are definitely recommended. Much much nicer than the standard rooms, in case you are deciding between the two. Spacious, beautiful views, Floor to ceiling windows on both sides.

We stayed in Gokarna with our daughters for a week. Nice resort furnished with good taste, pleasant atmosphere in a gorgeous environment. No smog, no noise. Staff is fabulous, very helpful and nice. Our kids loved the forest, the monkeys and deers. It was great experience.
