We stayed here on the recommendation of a friend who knew the owner, so were prepared to be underwhelmed. HOWEVER this really is the most amazing place. When the sky is clear (very early in the morning is best) the views of the Himalaya are spectacular. The grounds and terraces are high in the trees and beautifully designed to provide private spaces. The rooms are lovely and everything worked (a month in Nepal, this was the only bathroom that didn't have a leak!). Some wonderful hiking from the hotel and only a short walk into Nagarkot where local buses are easy to pick up (but keep your eyes shut if you are of a nervous disposition!). The staff were friendly, helpful but not overbearing. Food is wonderful. In short there is nothing not to like. Hugely recommended.

Having visited a number of resorts in Nagarkot, I was assured that I have seen them all. I was wrong.
This place exceeded my expectations. I had a very confortable stay, food (buffet) was delicious and they had huge varities of dishes available.

great location, wonderful relaxing garden in series of terraces down hillside, rich in colour and fragrance; staff are most friendly and attentive. Asked for and got a nice room with a great view Northwards of the Himalayas. Only grumble was late-night noise from a nearby hotel where a lot of youth (?) were living it up until the wee hours. Not sure how much Fort Resort can do about such thoughtless neighbours like that.

Room tip: for views, choose a room in main building; for seclusion, choose a delightful cabin on garden

Following an hour and a half long taxi ride from Kathmandu airport, up what are basically gravel mountain tracks, simply arriving at the Fort resort was already a huge relief. We were then warmly greeted by staff and shown to our rooms, which were by EU standards very attractive, clean and big, and by Nepalese standards absolute heaven.

We wandered around the grounds and immediately fell in love with the place. The buildings and gardens are beautiful and the view, on a clear day, is wonderful. Even on a misty day you still feel like you are experiencing something unique, like you are part of a limited group of lucky people who have experienced this tiny pocket of paradise.

This was our last day in Nepal before leaving so our plans were simply to relax. We therefore spent the whole day at the resort and got to know the staff and the facilities pretty well. Here is my rundown of what you can expect based on this experience:

Arrival: The front desk was always staffed, and the main lobby/restaurant always had 3-4 members of staff circulating. The team immediately helped with luggage and spoke excellent English. The rooms were immediately accessible and fully stocked complete with a thermos, coffee making equipment, bottled water, plug-in insect repellant, matches and a candle (in Nepal the power can go out at the strangest times, but rarely for very long) and a complementary half-bottle of red wine. We were checked in and shown to our rooms quickly. If you arrive at the same time as a large group this process might take longer, but there are plenty of places to lounge around and wait in the lobby. *Take Note* I advise you to bring your own shampoo/conditioner. Also, the temperature drops fast in the evening and the air con unit is very effective but only works when your key card is in place - so bear in mind you'll need to run it for 10-15 min before the room is really warm.

Morning: In March the sun was rising at about 6am and if weather conditions are in your favour, you definitely want to be on the roof terrace with a camera to catch the action. Luckily a member of staff will knock on your door around this time simply telling you 'Good Morning' and will then disappear. That is your cue to make coffee, throw on some clothes and get yourself up to the roof with your camera. *Take Note* Probably worth asking them not to do this every morning if you are staying more than one night, and you are a light sleeper. You should also locate the warm thick blankets in your cupboard as watching the sun rise while wrapped up in one of these (and sitting on a chair in the garden with a coffee in one hand) comes highly recommended.

Dining: From breakfast through to dinner you have options from a buffet or a menu. As there were only 2 of us, and we normally arrived early to the restaurant, the staff would usher us in first so we didn't get stuck behind the larger groups. This struck me as incredibly thoughtful and kind. The buffet food was good - you can pick from enough different options to avoid the things you don't like, but it is not traditional Nepalese because it has to cater for the large number of Chinese groups you see passing through. If you want to experience traditional options you can order those from the menu. The menu also has traditional Western options like pasta, steak and club sandwiches etc. Overall the food was good and the service in the restaurant was excellent. *Take Note* If you are feeling the cold pick a table in the restaurant that is located next to one of the stone fires. If you miss that chance simply ask and an electric heater will be quickly placed next to you.

Wifi: My friend needed to do some work while at the resort. The wifi wasn't perfect, but during the day the resort was quiet and she had plenty of bandwidth. During the evening the wifi is used heavily by the large groups that arrive so it becomes pretty spotty. It is enough to quickly check email, but not enough to stream video.

Service: Once the staff know your room number you don't need to tell it again, they will recognise you on sight. We found that the team were always highly considerate of our needs and took the time to figure out how to enhance our experience. For example, if we sat on a garden chair for more than 5 minutes they would come with cushions - and if we passed through reception in the morning with coffee mugs in our hands they would refill them.

Ambience: It is a beautiful place. The fort has been renovated and subsequently maintained very well and the gardens are immaculate - with lots of pots filled with flowering plants, plenty of places to sit, and a couple of lazy stray cats who will nonchalantly ignore you. The only detractor from the ambience, which I am afraid probably cannot be avoided, comes from other people staying in the resort. I barely noticed the noise from the construction of a new hotel nearby (this does not impede any views), but I did notice the high level of noise eminating from the large groups of shouting Chinese tourists. I sympathised greatly with the team as they actively tried to manage the impact on their other guests but it is a culture clash that you will experience at this resort. *Take Note* Its best to simply avoid the restaurant when the large groups of Chinese tourists are eating - plan to arrive perhaps 45mins after opening, or sit somewhere and let the staff know to come fetch you once things have calmed down.

Travel: The taxi to the resort from Kathmandu airport should cost you no more than 3000 NPR. I recommend travel to and from the resort late evening (after 7pm) as the roads are quieter, easier to navigate, and a 90 min journey becomes a 45 min journey.

Room tip: Due to adjacent building works (March 2019) ask for a room on the opposite side - or rent a cottage far away from the main building.
