            Quiet location. Excellent staff, friendly and efficient. Wonderful rooms, large and comfortable. Well laid out golf course with clubs for hire easily available. Great restaurant at the club house ( the momo's were excellent) with a beautiful view of the course and forest. Very reasonable and excellent spa facilities (swimming pool was being renovated). Good selection of tours available from the travel desk(the everest flight was spectacular!)

            No shuttle service making it difficult to travel to the city. Taxi's easily available but could take upto 45 mins at rush hour to get to city centre. More information should be made available online

            Only two good hotels in Kathmandu, maybe three in the whole country =) And this is definitely best out of those three and one of the best even out from those in better developed countries. Highly recommend! Safe and clean and calm with all the facilities on the place, good bar drinks choice, cousin. Stand literally in a forest, monkeys wandering around and extremely clean air! (You won't find it in ktm))

            We enjoyed being so close to nature with the monkeys and deer rambling close to the hotel. Staff were very friendly and accommodating. Rooms were spacious and comfortable. We were able to use the hotel as a base to travel within Nepal and arranged all our 'tours' and visits through the travel agency within the hotel on arrival.

            We found the hotel to be noisy in the evening and the morning!

            Exceptional and responsive staff. Well maintained and beautiful property. Loved wildlife on premises ( mother monkey and her baby were near our balcony upon arrival- but we did not feed the monkeys as instructed for their welfare), Many amenties available such as a guided nature walk on the forest preserve to morning yoga class (no fees) are awesome services. The spa options were exceptional. The addition of lemongrass to the spa water were soothing and most enjoyable. It takes approximately 25 minutes to reach the resort by taxi. The property is outside of the city- a map shows the distance as ~ 10 km but winding dirt roads full of potholes (typical Kathmandu roads) take longer to maneuver. The taxi costs right around $10 USD. The resort's front desk personnel will call for a taxi at your request and the confirmed fee can be added to your bill. A most convenient offer so one does not need to negotiate the rates with a driver ahead of time. A great relaxing area away from noise, and the hustle & bustle of the big city, We will be back!

            The hotel is located outside of the city and for me personally that was its biggest advantage. we spent 4 days in kathmandu and its surrounding cities and being all day in polluted, and crowded city, Gokarna offers serenity and peace, comfort and clean, fresh air! i would definately recommend it!

            the choice for breakfast buffee was poor and certainly not one for a five star resort.

          • Family with children
            9.2

            Gokarna Forest Resort was a bit outside the city which I actually enjoyed, it was a great escape after the hustle of the day. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The rooms were gorgeous. I loved it!

          • Older travelers

            A beautiful, relaxing place to stay. a great place to come back to every day after the noise and hassle of Kathmandu. Quiet and relaxing and lovely, friendly staff.A Real oasis.

            The only thing we can say is that the food is not quite up to standard in terms of variety. Service and quality of food is excellent, but after a week we were looking for greater variety. Also the air con in our room wasn't working and it took five days to fix, but they did offer a room change.

          • Older travelers
            7.8

            Excellent service from all the staff

            The maintenance on the swimming pool was poor. Mildew on the walls and the childrens pool was very dirty

          • Family with children
            8.2

            The staff if very friendly and take up the complaints very promptly. The ambience as well as food is wonderful. Calm and peaceful atmosphere a perfect break from the city life! Breakfast is really not to be missed with many options...The eco friendly approach of the hotel like the recycled paper, organic ( I assume) locally made soap and the whole decor of the resort is quite appealing.

            Can improve on the cleanliness (hygiene) part like cleaning of the crockery (cup/saucers in the room) was found to be done in the bathroom sink by the house keeping staff. Also can include some activities for children like a small play area with swings,slides etc since the resort is far from the city its good to keep kids occupied if you plan to spend more time at the resort instead of going out.

          • Couple

            The monkey and the pretty nature

          • Group of friends
            8.2

            The deluxe room is very large and the staff is good. This hotel is a very peaceful place where to spend a couple of days after being in Kathmandu, to relax and to be in contact with the nature (the forest is very beutiful)

            The restaurant is quite expensive for Nepal and the bar service is not so good. The taxi service to the airport is not free (600 rp), and it is quite weird taking into account that lots of hotels in kathmandu offer this service for free.
