Pleasant quiet stay
Our children particularly had a great time in the pool and spa. We were welcomed and made to feel it was our home away from home. Thank you

My Advise
I will mention the good things and the bad things honestly. GOOD: The resort has large greenish area which include a gold course so if you are a golfer or you like the calm of nature this place good for you there are 2 deers and few monkies maybe 3 of them around the rooms and they are funny and safe. There are 1 bony horse and 1 regular horse for riding . And the best thing in this resort is the spa and stone and herbal body massage. I have been in hundreds before they are on the top. There rooms cleen and spacious i took 2 connecting rooms for my family BAD: airport pick up agreed to be $50 on the phone , they asked me for $57 another thing when ever I order a meal in room service or in the restuarant (indian ,chinese and continental) always the manipulate the prices every time i check i find a higher price than what written on the menu. But the appologized for these incidents (3 different times) . The variety of the bofet & food not very good also for 24 hrs menu for rooms. Their biryani was excellent. There is no elevator for 2nd & 3rd floors room so if you have baby stroller you may suffer. There are no proper place for kids to play. And the water is clean but yellowish in color in the toilet & swimming pool i think it comes directly from the nearby river. So its resort not a hotel i may say 4 stars not 5 and my total review score to be between 7.5 to 8 this place is good for not more than 2 nights and for couples & solo travellers with no kids to relax. So my Advise to the hotel management to add some activities for kids , use water filtration system , improve there food menu similar to the 5 stars hotel. And do maintenance for Air conditioning units + clean the lights from trapped insects & lizards to reach 5 star hotel.

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!
