If you need to find your peace and quiet after having spent your day in the beautiful city Gokarna is the place for you. Just half an hour drive and will arrive in the beautiful hotel,surrounded by a forest. If... More

I have been here a couple of times before with family for Saturday lunch and the experience has been just amazing. Its a beautiful resort with the lush green scenery and the golf course. The architecture style of the buildings is great since it was a former Royal property. Its definitely a good place for personal retreats. This time, i... More

My organization hosted a training event at Gokarna for a group of 18. We truly enjoyed the relaxed, natural environment surrounding the hotel. The staff are also very helpful, polite, and keen to see needs and assist you with anything you need. I would recommend this hotel for either business or personal travel.

The historic hotel and extensive grounds are an oasis of green on the edge of the wonders of Kathmandu. Thank you all once again for your... More

Amazing staff, location, food, room and atmosphere. Highly recommended, and good value for money. Tashi was amazingly helpful from the moment we checked in, and the bar / restaurant staff is the most considerate and friendly I came across in Nepal.

We stayed at the hotel with an organized tour. The hotel is on the outskirts of Kathmandu so it is very quiet, green and has wild monkeys that roam the grounds. The hotel is nice but don't expect a five star as you would in the US. You have to adjust your expectations. Compared to the other hotels we stayed... More

This lovely hotel is a former hunting lodge with the grounds turned into a golf course. I did not play the course, but did buy a shirt from the adjoining pro shop. There is also a spa at the hotel.

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
