It was very peaceful stay at the hotel. Rooms were fine. Service was good. I stayed in the hotel for the program. I found the best place for indoor session as well as outdoor sessions. For recreation there was plenty of things that can be done inside. The instrumental music with typical Nepali tune was amazing to listen.

Situated outside Kathmandu away from the dusty noisy streets, this place is a breath of fresh air (literally). The hotel is up a winding tarmac road which leads straight to reception. It is a fairly modern building but fits in well with the surrounding forest. We were part of a 'Great Railway Journey' group, of about 30, 'doing India and...

Its a bit far from the city centre but then it compensates with facilities not available in any resorts or 5 star hotels of Kathmandu.

Kathmandu can be intimidating for first-time visitors. Staying at Gokarna Forest Resort was very comfortable. The resort is located on a golf course and in a forest very close to the city.

My wife and I visited this resort as part of a small group tour of Nepal. It is absolutely beautiful. Our room was wonderful but the bed was hard.

This hotel would not have been my first choice because it is a taxi ride from the city. However, I discovered that staying outside Kathmandu is not necessarily a bad thing. It's a $6 taxi ride to town and aside from the awful wifi reception at the hotel, everything was fine. After being in the crowded city, it was nice...

I really enjoyed my time in the hotel. Service was perfect. People were friendly and helpful, but not overwhelmingly so. Spacious rooms. The Spa center Is not big, but worth it (Himalayan massage is highly recommended). And the loveliest bit, considering the air pollution in Kathmandu is that this is one of the places you could breath.

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
