We stayed at this breathtaking resort for our honeymoon. The location is secluded in the forests outside Kathmandu and boasts the only 18 hole golf resort in Nepal. The staff are the friendliest I have ever known and the rooms were spacious.

We had a great visit during monsoon season. The indoor pool was great for the kids and we enjoyed the meals as well. We went for a forest walk which was lovely -- we saw monkeys, deer and black fox. Although be sure to wear high boots during monsoon season because there were a lot of leeches!

Enjoy the walks around the grounds, the indoor pool, gym, sauna plus heaps of other things to do when you have time. Gokharna was a great venue for our workshop. The staff took great care of us and made sure all out news were met. It's a beautiful place to relax or get some work done.

The resort itself is beautiful with all the grounds and buildings. It can be expensive for a family with choice of three restaurants with top end pricing, the food though is well prepared and some of the best we have had in Nepal. The golf course is lovely, though you have to pay to walk around it with a guide... 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
