Always a pleasure to spend some time in Gokarna. The atmosphere is peaceful, the staff is great, the rooms are luxurious and the food is delicious. Loved the golf course and the SPA too. My family and I have gone there several times and we've never been disappointed...

Make no mistake in picking the best resort for your stay while you are in Nepal. After spending three whole days at the Gokarna Forest Resort, I wouldn't dare to vouch for any other. Set amidst Kathmandu Valley in an undulating forest surrounding, this resort pretty much has everything you are looking for in a rejuvenating holiday. Located about 5... More

This place is in the midst of lush greenry and gives an experience of staying in a heritage property with modern facilities. Rooms are very spacious and service is excellent. Indian food in the restaurant is very good.

Hotel and facilities are good. Shower water I think was rain stored water as it was a bit yellow. Shower temp was tepid at best. Lovely resort and the best in Kathmandu as it is outside the polluted traffic filled city centre. Prepare for a bumpy car ride to/from anywhere outside the hotel. Golf course was kept in good condition,... More

Situated in a wonderful forest with a well designed golf course, many facilities including spa, swimming pool, nice terraces and gardens. Reindeers and monkeys and much more to see, just walk around the forest with a guide or wait patiently for they to come on a park corner. Not far from the city center, 30 minutes to the main shopping... More

I stayed here for two days at the close of my time in Nepal. The staff - particularly Rima- were open, friendly and very helpful. The environment was relaxed, the massage good, the pool and spa fabulous and the food on the first night outstanding. The forest walk was fun, despite the leeches! but i would have liked to have...

There is no better place in Kathmandu if you just want to enjoy the nature and laze around with a game of golf. our rooms were spacious and decorated pleasantly. Apart from golf there is nothing much to do there. I would recommend a nature walk if you just like to kill some time. It is more of a relaxed... More

If you need to find your peace and quiet after having spent your day in the beautiful city Gokarna is the place for you.

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
