“4 day break to Kathmandu”
Reviewed September 17, 2011

Had an excellent stay at Gokarna, although not enough time to enjoy its beauty! Was there for 2 nights in Sep 2011 from Dubai.

The hotel is unique and something different being in a Jungle and surrounded by 18-hole golf course. Staff are very helpful especially Karma who had upgraded our room, as per request , if upgraded rooms available.

If you are adventurous and like the not-so-norm hotels, ie Jungle, surrounded by Monkeys, Deers and a magnificent 18-hole golf course, then this is something to choose.

One small down side, is the selection of Food was a little average compared to other places of similar nature.

Would still recommend this place to stay though.

I, my wife and a couple of our family friends visited this hotel in August 2011 recently and stayed for a day. We felt that the time was so short, wishing that that our stay would have been much longer. This is one of the best hotels for its price range in Kathmandu in terms of amenities, services, surroundings, natural beauty and staff.
This place was a heaven for natural beauty lovers and early morning and evening walkers. There are beautiful walking trails for one to enjoy the walk and the natural beauty. Religious people also find a haven in this place as there are many small temples. Amazing facilities have been made available for sport lovers with a well maintained golf course and swimming pool.
The staff is very amenable and helpful and food is perfect in variety, quality and presentation.
The one problem we faced was during check out early morning - Only one staff member was available for luggage transfer. It just seemed like it took infinite time for check out for a group.
The only thing I would say was missing was the elevator, one had to use stairs only.

After days of roaming the city highlights, its a place to relax and unwind. A round of Golf will then make the stay complete.

Room Tip: Needs some transportation to get to the city.

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
