I stayed there three times in short succession and liked it even better every time. It is near Kathmandu, including in particular the airport, yet away from the pollution, chaos and hustle and bustle of the city. It is very well maintained and managed, with extremely efficient, helpful and warm and friendly staff throughout. It is well secured. The resort...

This is a beautiful hotel, but it's outside of Kathmandu. You'll need a taxi or transportation to go sightseeing. This is definitely a resort and offers a beautiful 18 hole golf course and yoga practice each morning. Plus there is an huge forests with leopards, monkeys, sloth bear and other animals you can hike through on the grounds. The rooms...

We stayed here for a few days after our Everest base camp trek. The service was excellent and the staff were generally very good. The golf course is tidy and a good layout and well kept. The rooms are large and comfy and the food selection is good. Overall, very happy with our two days here.

Enter the resort and then you'll find tranquility. Great place to stay and relax with lots of food options. Rooms were also spotlessly clean. The only problem I had was with wifi and internet speed. All other facilities are outstanding.

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
