Lovely peaceful sorroundings with amenities in full. Golf ground. Sufficient place for weeding ceremony and like that. Peaceful but a little bit away from downtown. Boudhnath stupa the biggest in Asia very neat.

The reservation was done at short notice, but smoothly handled by their front desk, who were waiting for me as I arrived. It was my birthday, and they not only connected from the arrival form I completed, they hunted me out in the evening with a... More

The perfect choice for your stay in Kathmandu. This resort was our welcomed respite after a full day of sightseeing and shopping. Our room was spacious with a large comfortable bed. The shower was wonderful! Plenty of hot water too. The menu in the restaurant included some typical American foods along with tasty Nepal foods to choose from. Breakfast is... More

A tranquil getaway which is close enough to Kathmandu to get to but far enough to avoid the hubbub and frenetic activity of the city. The grounds, golf course and forest surroundings are scenic and very pleasant to walk around. The Nepali people are incredibly hospitable anyway, and almost despite the hotel going for a more professional level of service,... More

Gokarna is a wonderful place to stay! And only 30 minutes away from all the chaos in Kathmandu/Thamel. It is a beautiful forest type resort. With nature walks, fabulous horseback riding through the hills and local communities, golf course, incredible spa services. The entire staff was incredible and went above and beyond all expectations!

Good place to stay for a few days in Katmandu. Spa and Golf facilities are really well adapted for leisure out of the city. Food could be more diversified (limited choices). Only 30 minutes from Thamel by car.
