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.

Stay at Gokarna resort, khatmandu.
Very courteous staff. Quality and spread of food was very good though very limited choices for vegetarians. Well laid out bar with good variety of liquor and beverages. Rooms were very large and spacious, but plumbing needs attention. The forest ambience was a classic and golfing experience was unique amongst the thick forest vegetation. But while during forest trek, beware of leeches which are irksome and nauseating. Good place to stay, away from noise and pollution with plenty of fresh air. We enjoyed the heated swimming pool and the spa, but the therapists were raw and need more training. Overall a good get away from the hustle n bustle of city life.

Gokharna experience
We stayed here for 3-4 nights in a beautiful suite in December 2014 with 3 kids : 4,2 & 1 yr old. Everything was excellent including the grounds & the staff. It is a good 30-45 min from the city & hence, away from the hustle & bustle if that's what you like. They helped us in getting stuff sent to the US. However, in the process they lost one parcel. After reaching the US, I contacted them & they paid me back the amount of the items lost by the. Very professional always. I highly recommend them.

Kathmandu in the Jungle
Great location situated close to the city but in a forest preserve that seems a long way from the hulabaloo of Kathmandu
Peaceful and relaxing. We love the setting and the heated indoor pool. Horseback riding was fun too. A wonderful place to stay.

November 2015, My 7th Stay!!!
The Staff, The Staff, The Staff
This was my 7th stay at the Gokarna, but the first since the earthquake. Fortunately this resort was spared damage. But due to the current fuel crisis, getting around town has become expensive since gas must be purchased on the black market at approximately $10/gallon. But the quality of the staff has not changed - they're just as friendly and helpful as they were on my 1st visit in 2011. Am looking forward to my 8th stay!

We went there for my mother's birthday and the holiday was as memorable as I could have ever imagined. The weather was perfect and the staff were extremely courteous. I will definitely be making a return trip soon
