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.

Great place for a family escape with good foods and services. We stayed for 2 days 2 nights with my wife, daughter and sister and we had an amazing time. Especially my daughter loved the place, as she had so much to do, including golf cart ride, horse riding, play area, swimming, etc. I was worried that food would be a problem for her as she is very choosy but to my surprise, she loved it and yes the staffs are amazing and were very prompt to address to our requests.

I went as a part of a business trip. We set aside time for quiet reflection, and with the expansive property, this was indeed possible. Beautiful, peaceful surroundings. The room was very spacious, beautifully furnished, and clean. If you are overlooking the courtyard, it can be noisy if groups below are not monitoring their volume.

We had an excellent stay at the Gokarna Forest Resort for a recent trip to Nepal for a close friends wedding. From the time we landed in Kathmandu, everything was perfectly executed. A driver was waiting for us at the airport at 1 AM to take us to the hotel. At the hotel, the breakfast buffet was exceptional with many options to choose from, the front desk staff were warm and welcoming, and it was always easy to coordinate a day trip with a shuttle from the resort. The excellent hospitality from everyone, especially from Sumita, Sunil and Pradip, truly made this a 5-star vacation. We took a forest walk twice, which was challenging and rewarding with views of various shrines and temples along the way. We were fortunate enough to be present for, and take part in, their Holi celebration. We were welcomed into their culture with open arms, and this was an experience we will forever cherish. We will be back to visit Kathmandu and when we return, we will definitely be staying at Gokarna Forest Resort.
