A place to revisit again n again ”

The staffs, The beauty of the hotel and the luxury, The spa

A place which talks about beauty and luxury, a place which makes you feel like home - Gokarna Forest Resort! Been a traveller and have stayed in the best of hotel chains across the world , I would not hesitate to say that this Resort is the best one so far and shall always remain forever young in my heart. No doubt its a very beautiful property with all the modern amenities but what makes it precious is the people working for this resort. All the 5 stars offers luxury but Gokarna stands out because it makes you feel like home . Each and every one out there ensures to cater to make you feel comfortable- right from the front desk to the housekeeping ,one is greeted with warmth and smile. I would really like to thank each one of them specially Tashi & Deepika and there was another lady whose name I couldnt remember. Tashi - how much I appreciate for everything you did ,you left no stone unturned.Deepika with her smile ever willing to assist. Can never forget you Tashi! Everything was taken care and I had the best time of my life. The spa is brilliant must say . I wouldn’t hesitate to say that it is excellent and I liked it more than Anantara signature spa which I took last month in Dubai in Anantara spa &resort. The thai restaurant overlooking the golf course is so serene and food was good too. Don’t forget to try out the Nepali thali in their main restaurant .However couldn’t do the forest walk for it was raining in Nepal that time but it too should be great. All in all I would say, my heart goes out for this resort.

Perfect retreat from chaotic Kathmandu”

Overall quality of hotel and rooms, professional and friendly staff, peace from the noise of Kathmandu

A perfect finish to 3 weeks in Nepal. Having been trekking in the Annapurna region, down in Chitwan then back to Kathmandu, Gokarna Forest Resort was a great place to relax and be spoilt for 3 nights before flying home to London. It is not cheap but the money is very well spent. Very welcoming staff, all smartly dressed and on hand to help with everything. Rooms nicely furnished and great size with good attention to detail. Hotel was spotlessly clean throughout. Enjoyed the spa and a lovely Himalayan massage to ease the aches from our trekking. Only being just outside the city was great with a short transfer to airport. The forest kept the noise and bustle of Kathmandu well hidden. Thanks to all those involved with our stay. Alan and Sonya

Never Left the Hotel while in Nepal!”

Spa, Golf, Location

After flying into the very dirty city of Kathmandu, it was very nice to arrive in the Gokarna Forest Resort. Staying just a few days, we never left the hotel. We enjoyed the "best golf course in Nepal" (there are only 5), golf pro, spa, and the morning breakfast buffet. The first night we arrived there was a dinner buffet which was excellent, but after that the dinner was off the menu, which was okay but nothing impressive. Spa is excellent and enjoyed many treatments all of which were excellent. The staff was very professional. In general, service at the hotel is excellent and it was a great place to relax for a few days.

Marvellous Family holiday at Gokarna Forest Resort (Nov 2018)”

My sincere thanks to everyone at Gokarna Forest Resort to make our weeklong family holiday such a wonderful experience. I booked myself, my parents (mom and dad) and my uncle and aunt at Gokarna. I was meeting my uncle and aunt after a very long time and all of us were travelling from different airports into Kathmandu. The respective airport pickups were spot on time and drove us to he lovely estate quietly tucked out of the city traffic and the noise. we were booked into one of the suites and a cottage room - the rooms were elegantly done and the room service didnt even leave a trace of a second call. (they even replenished the note pads next to telephone! that's neat!) Rooms were ethnic and well decorated. the balcony was nice attached to the suite the common areas were well kept - neat and tidy. facilities including swimming pool, sauna and jacuzzi were all in excellent working state. I will definitely visit them again before i die :)

Discover a great hotel”

Clean air, tranquillity, heaven of peace

We ended up in Gokarna unexpectedly, when we suddenly had to change travel plans on Christmas Day 2013. Our stay was longer than usual, and understanding this from the booking, made on Agoda, staff were already prepared when we arrived. We were allocated a large comfortable room with a view of a small interior lawn where deer came to graze every morning, and we could also see the sunrise in the mountains. Both guest relations managers we met, Lasta and Deepka, were exceptionally attentive. The location of the hotel enables you not only to explore Kathmandu and Bhaktapur, but also the countryside, forests and surrounding villages - which is a great asset of the location, if you are a slightly more adventurous traveller. Bodha Stupa is 2 miles away, and is a great place to observe and learn about a new culture. There are walks into pine forests part Boudha Stupa, to the north, and plenty of small local restaurants. The place is great for golfers, nature lovers and those who appreciate beautiful peaceful environment. Highly recommended.

Kathmandu is a poor country. It can be hot, dusty, chaotic and difficult to navigate. Gokarna Forest Resort is a blessed oasis within the city. The food is terrific and the staff is great. It is on the pricey side but staying there was the best decision we made.

Perfect place to unwind”

After 2 weeks of work in Patan, Kathmandu I needed a couple of days to recharge before heading home. Gokarna was the perfect place - heated rooms, very comfortable beds and pillows, tv with a million channels, good food, great service, fresh air. I went on the two hour forest walk which was stunning. The spa treatment was magical. I can't recommend Gokarna enough!

Beautiful retreat from Kathmandu”

Helpful and friendly staff, bath, food, scenery

the resort is on the outskirts of kathmandu, out past boudna stupa and can be reached by taxi from kathmandu centre for @ 700 rupees. the staff were all very helpful, attentive and friendly. food was excellent. it was nice to sit outside the tripti bar where there were beautiful views of the grounds. we took a walk around the forest with a guide, note you are not allowed to walk alone. thre are monkeys everywhere and it was hilarious to see a security guard chasing them around with a slingshot when they congregate and play on the hotel roof. room was big and comfortable and included the biggest bath i have ever seen in my life. wouldn't hesitate to recommend this hotel to anyone visiting kathmandu. it's a real oasis to return to after a long day of walking and sightseeing.

Peaceful Location”

Friendly Staff

We enjoyed our short stay at Gokarna Forest Resort. The hotel was once a Royal Hunting Lodge and is set in large grounds with a golf course. About 30 minutes drive from the airport, it was a welcome oasis after the chaos of Kathmandu. The staff were particularly friendly and nothing was too much trouble. The rooms were spacious and clean. If you have time you can arrange guided walks around the grounds.

Chef and staff at reception at Gokarna are Fabulous”

Stayed for just 1 night but enjoyed every single minute during our stay at Gokarna Resort in kathmandu Special thanks to the young lady (Name skipped out of my mind) who arranged a smooth check in and showed us all around the resort Enjoyed few shots of golf and temperature controlled swimming pool with my family. Sumptuous meal (dinner) with drizzle after brief rain in march was not too cold but unforgetful experience. Not to mention Chefs complimentary dessert was icing on the cake...Highly recommend and will definitely visit with family again

Now experience”

We had a wonderful experience to stay at Gokarna Hotel, a magnificent atmosphere and very helpful stuff. many activities to do such as golfing, walk throw forest, horse riding and enjoying many other activities. Some notice were about spa and swimming pool that they need to renovate because of its old style and indoor pool. I advise who are looking for comfort staying in crowded city went to this resort.

Loved it!”

After a 15 day overland tour from New Delhi to Kathmandu, I spent a few days at Gokarna Resort relaxing and recharging. It was the perfect place to do this. Quiet with fabulous staff. Great breakfast was included and loved the forrest walk. Only downside was spa. I had one treatment where I felt rushed and completely anonymous. I had planned on a few more treatments, but didn't bother. Other than that, I loved the whole experience!

Trying to be a world-class hotel”

Lovely rooms; great wildlife around hotel; location near forest reserve

Gokarna is trying to be a world-class hotel and the staff is constantly soliciting feedback. Good that they are trying so hard; annoying that they continually interrupted us for feedback. Beautiful location near forest reserve. They provide great golf and spa services but certainly have not taken full advantage of their location for wildlife buffs like us. The extra nature walk that we paid for was provided by a guide who had not been trained at all. However, the hotel is clearly seeking to improve and the staff was friendly, attentive (if overly so--they need to learn discretion), well-spoken and eager to please. Restaurants o.k. but not outstanding.

The stay was very comfortable and relaxed... ”

spa, heated swimming pool, and forest surroundings...

We enjoyed our stay at Gokarna Forest Resort immensely because we wanted to relax and chill...and just enjoy the surroundings instead of running around sightseeing. So for us the experience was good...

Thank You Gokarna”

One of the best places I have ever stayed in the world and I have stayed at many places. Fantastic grounds include a full size golf course and forest filled with wild life. Food was excellent and so were the staff. I could not fault Gokarna in any way at all. Fantastic just relaxing watching the Monkeys, Deer and Eagles at the club house or just relaxing around the main hotel complex. Will return for sure after I have completed some other travels on my bucket list. Really did not want to leave. Thanks again to all staff there. Met and made some really good friends. Hope to see you again soon.

Beautiful resort with friendly service.”

friendly staff, nice location, nice restaurant overlooking forest and golf place, spacious rooms

i liked the overall experience in gokarna forest resort, it was great for our 2 yrs old son because of their nice big garden where he used to play each morning during breakfast. my husband and i tried their spa and we didn't like it at all, my husband ended with skin irritation on his legs and i had cramps for another 2 days after the massage.

Mixed Views on this one”

Room, Jacuzzi, Staff

On our last leg of a Nepal trip, we stayed at Gokarna for a night. In the early part we had stayed at Hyatt Kathmandu so there was a reference point (though very different type of properties) What's good: 1. Away from the Cramped City - Gokarna does score (if this works for you) on the location and its a serene, quiet, log-cabin type of place away from key locations(at least 20-30 mts from Airport and even further from city center) 2. Well done rooms - Rooms are very well done (at least the new Qtrs where we stayed in the main block - there are rooms which are further away (Hunters Lodge) which can be a walk on a cold night) 3. Spa, Pool & Sauna - Really good heated pool, Jacuzzi and Sauna facility (all complementary) 4. Polite Staff - Lovely people, friendly. 5. Sai Temple in the facility - for the Sai Baba devotees, a great to have. What's Not-so-Great: 1. Wifi - Such a dampner. Chargeable in rooms and not cheap (besides being only for one device). Its free in the Bar and lounge area but they are not in close proximity to all rooms. Quality of wifi too is average. Very disappointed. 2. Food was average - we ate at the Chinese/Thai restaurant which was at best 2/5. The Breakfast was also average - 3/5. 3. Travel from the Airport - The road is terrible. Dont take a local cab from the Airport, better to get the Hotel Car (which is twice as costly but a better vehicle) 4. Rates not published - Gokarna does not publish on its website rates of Green Fees, Service Fee for facilities (for example bike rentals etc). We felt these rates were very high and they should publish them for a someone to take an informed decision before booking. Overall, goto Gokarna is you want to stay for 2-3 days and largely want use in-house facilities (Golf, biking, spa, bird watching etc - some at a steep price though). Not Recommended if you are a touristy traveller to Kathmandu and want to be in proximity of main city locations. Also for kids, it may be a boring place.

Wonderful place to stay”

Great location and fabulous staff

Everything about Gokarna makes this a lovely place. It is quiet, beautiful, with spacious rooms, welcoming staff and has a spa and good food. It's location on a hill outside Kathmandu protects you from the noise and air pollution of the city.

I have stayed at many five star resorts and Gokarna puts many of them to shame. The service is incredible. Very relaxing weekend after a hard trek. Its out of the dust and smog of kathmandu.

Relaxing & refreshing stay”

friendly staff, nice golf course, quiet surroundings

Gokarna has been away from the polluted Kathmandu city. The stay there was just to relax and to enjoy the hotel facilities or activities like yoga, golfing, forest walk, massage & others... It was just refreshing by staying in this peaceful resort.
