A clean, comfortable and safe resort in Kathmandu. Does not get five stars because of the distance to the town centre, which can be a hassle depending on which attractions you want to see and how many days you have. On the other hand, the quiet natural surroundings provide a relaxing break after a day in this bustling town.The hotel...

Me and my husband were at the Gokarna resort in February for a wedding. Its a lovely property. A little away from the town so is very peaceful and serene. It has a beautiful golf course made by the David Mclaykidd. I am not a golfer but my husband is and he had two enjoyable rounds there. All the rooms...

This time we came to Nepal for Everest Base camp trek for 2 weeks and our tour operator Himalayan Recreation recommend this Resort after successful trip. Ideally that was perfect choose for us, Friendly staffs, clean room with 24Hrs running hot and cold shower and best breakfast around Kathmandu is recommendable.

We held an event for some 50 people at Gokarna, most staying 2 nights, and it went off perfectly. The meeting rooms and bedrooms were all first class. The staff was superb. The food and drink was well-liked by everyone.

We stayed at Gokarna after doing the EBC trek. It was a wonderful stay! The highlight was definitely the food! The breakfast and dinner buffets were phenomenal. The ala carte menu was also great but you just had to wait a little longer for it. The rooms and grounds are beautiful the only downside is the hot water. It takes...

Relaxing forested retreat relatively close to Kathmandu (of course depending on traffic). Perfect opportunity to relax and have some spa treatments after trekking! The staff were all very welcoming and hospitable! Also the wifi works well! Only issues are that it's not centrally located and is a popular venue for weddings so it's very noisy with party guests.

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
