Our travel agency booked us at Gokarna Forest Resort for a wind down after our 5-day mountain trek. The check-in was effortless (well, after all the usual rituals, of course). The receptionists were very professional and pleasant. Also, the lobby guy was very nice. I was looking for my room after checking in and one of the hostesses walked me...

The hotel was beautiful, as well as the grounds. What an Oasis in Kathmandu. Bandana Khadka, Guest Relation Executive, was so personable and always checking to make sure everything was perfect. The staff was professional and efficient. What a joy to stay there twice during my three weeks in Bhutan and Nepal.

We checked in and were given a room, we were taken to the rooms, unpacked, used the bathrooms and lay in the beds. At the restaurant we were told we were in the wrong rooms and were going to have someone pack our things and move us to lower class room. Highly unusual, very embarrassing to have that play out...

We've arrived late around 4pm but still the room wasn't ready. But, they did gave us a late check out at 3pm as we've requested. The room is big and beautiful. The staff were very helpful. The food selection is great and tasty. Getting there was quite a trip with the roads under construction. So be prepared for a bumpy...

The Gokarna is what we wish all hotels could be. It is an oasis of clean air, cuckoo birds, monkeys, stags and jungle. Everything that Kathmandu is not. The staff is outstanding- universally. Outgoing, anxious to help in any way. Rojin is an exceptional manager. His team is incredible. Norbu Sherpa, Doreen, Sabeena, absolutely everyone on the staff genuinely is...

What shall I say? Right from entering the premises and seeing the beautiful facade, we were in love. The check in process was quite seamless that we felt we were sleep walked through the entire process. The windows opened to the lush green outside and the room was cozy.

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
