Gokarna Forest Resort exceeded all our expectations. Arriving with family including ages from 6 to 70, our needs were varied and all catered for very well. Daily early morning yoga classes, complimentary for guests, eased us into the right frame of mind to experience Nepal as it should be. The guided forest walk, even the 1 hour option, took us...

An excellent retreat from the hussle and bussle of Katmandu. Clean, spacious rooms. Very peaceful (unless there happens to be a Napelese wedding taking place on the lawn!). Staff very friendly with good intentions. A litle short on things to do - and everything is charged as an extra.

We were in Kathmandu for a wedding and due to the Turkish Airlines' mishap, arrived at various dates. The staff at Gokarna, from the bell-hop to the Guest Manager, Tashi, could not have been more helpful and empathetic in all aspects of our stay. We had 3 members of staff help us dress in sarees. When my husband and I... More

I played this Nov 2005 when I climbed to base camp for my 60 th birthday . While I wouldn't say the course was great it was interesting and probably much improved now . Don't think the hotel was built then but it's set in a lovely country setting . anything would beat the hustle and bustle of Kathmandu .

Absolutely love this place! Staff is amazing--they do everything they can to accomodate and please their guests. I have no idea how, but when we checked in we were greeted by name! Gokarna is all about service. 3 restaurants all extremely reasonably priced and 24 hour room service will meet all tastes--extensive breakfast buffet with the best omelet station, terrific... More

Gokarna Forest Resort was an excellent choice for my visit to Kathmandu. The property is absolutely beautiful and peaceful. The staff are all amazing and extremely hospitable! We were three guests staying in one room. Rooms are big and spacious. The only disappointing thing is wifi is only accessible and free in the bar/restaurant downstairs. Quite a few monkeys, but...

Another hotel recommended by Ker & Downey and well worth the visit. We were there for 4 nights as a party of 6 and all enjoyed it. Two of us played golf on their splendid course reputed to be the best in Nepal. The rooms are good and the food is good and well priced. Reception are helpful and Lasta... More

Despite the above descriptors, it was not perfect. I had a beautiful spacious room both times, I was there both before and after the EBC trek. The food, pool, bar, massage, and the grounds were all exceptional. Nepal is a land of have-nots, where poverty is the greatest problem facing their society. Unfortunately, at some point during my trek, or... More

Had an absolutely amazing experience at this beautiful resort. Not only is the property just great the hospitality was also very good. Highly recommend this place to everyone!! The golf course is an added incentive. Just sit back and relax.
