Stayed at the Gokarna Forest Resort for a few days and enjoyed being there. Great service and nice people. The hotel is beautifully secluded, yet close to Kathmandu airport and several other sightseeing excursions. The forest surrounding the area is well worth taking a walk in. For the golf enthusiasts there is a beautiful 18-hole course. (There is no outdoor... More

I spent 2 nights in this resort. I would say that it is a 4* and not a 5* resort. My room was big but the bathroom wasn't especially clean. The Chinese restaurant has a amazing view of the forest and golf course , worth a visit for lunch!

Not too far from the airport, yet in the forest and hills away from the noise of the city. We received superb service from every member of the staff without exception, especially Lasta at the front desk. I gave it a 4 instead of a 5 only because of some small problems with our bed, TV and view from our... More

We spent a great week at the resort and found the staff superb, they couldn't do enough for us. Sundersan, the bell boy was really helpful, knowledge of the main sights and suggestions on what to do were invaluable. And lasta, she was really helpful also. In fact we have no complaints about any member of staff. We would recommend... More

We stayed here in March 2014 just for two nights while we explored Kathmandu valley.We liked the pictures on the walls of the hotel from all over the Himalayan region and enjoyable music that sounded through the halls of the hotel. Our room was clean and spacious and the bathroom was modern. The resort is in a great location with... More

Gokarna was the last stop before leaving Nepal. After all trekking and visiting many places, we were happy to find that this hotel was very relaxing to stay. It didn't have many things to do if you don't play golf or do more trekking. But just take your time here, eat nice food, get into the pool or hot jacuzzi... More

The resort in located in a forest sanctuary and it feels like you are in nature but have all the aminaties you could ask for from great spacious rooms to a wonderful spa... More

We enjoyed our stay here. It was quiet clean and the staff very helpful. The use of the pool and yoga was appreciated. The golf course looked inviting. The buffet breaky was fresh and substantial. I would recommend Gokarna for those requiring a few quiet days.

Now if you are a couple looking for a quick getaway then this is the place to go.. the place is a bit close to the main road but not that close for one to hear the traffic. The spa was the highlight of the trip.. we took the head to toe treatment and you will be pampered from head... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Gokarna Forest Resort... A tranquil Heaven to quiet Hideaways.Situated within the city limits of Kathmandu, capital of Nepal, Gokarna Forest Resort is located inside the serene temperate Gokarna Forest, the former private Royal hunting grounds of the Kings of Nepal. A winding road climbs leads through the forest up to the main complex, comprising a mix of subtly majestic Malla period architecture, Rana period lodges, and sanctuaries harmoniously blending with nature. Further on exotic Forest View cottage rooms are set beside a century old restored Hunter's lodge. A quiet peaceful haven set between ancient towering trees with glimpses of the second fairway in the valley below make the perfect getaway for a few days of golf, relaxation and rejuvenation at the Spa, enchanting forest walks, and time close to nature. SPA & HEALTH CLUB Amongst majestic trees on the edge of a plateau overlooking Gokarna Forest and the grassed valley below, Harmony Spa combines therapeutic care with a natural environment impossible to recreate elsewhere. Included are a variety of rejuvenating courses, emphasizing Ayurvedic treatments within Ayura, a dedicated Ayurvedic treatment area, the Adam & Eve, and Serenity massage rooms. The Health club encompasses Apsara, the Beauty Treatment center, an indoor temperature controlled swimming pool, luxurious changing rooms each with a Sauna, Steam room, and Jacuzzi. The large well equipped gym, the finest in the country, overlooks the forest through large windows. GOLF COURSE Against the backdrop of the snow capped Himalayas, close to the heart of Kathmandu city, South Asia's finest, and one of the world's most spectacular Golf Resort Courses is stunningly set within 470 acres of the hundreds years old Gokarna Forest Reserve. Designed by David Kidd (Gleneagles Golf Developments of Scotland), the 6,715 yard par 72 course boasts the only Bent Grass Greens in South Asia, making it one of the highlights of the professional tour circuits in the region. The serenity and setting are overwhelming. Deer and monkey wander freely, as will the spirits of all who enter. Truly an enchanting sanctuary. ... more   less
