              Marvellous Family holiday at Gokarna Forest Resort (Nov 2018)”

              My sincere thanks to everyone at Gokarna Forest Resort to make our weeklong family holiday such a wonderful experience. I booked myself, my parents (mom and dad) and my uncle and aunt at Gokarna. I was meeting my uncle and aunt after a very long time and all of us were travelling from different airports into Kathmandu. The respective airport pickups were spot on time and drove us to he lovely estate quietly tucked out of the city traffic and the noise. we were booked into one of the suites and a cottage room - the rooms were elegantly done and the room service didnt even leave a trace of a second call. (they even replenished the note pads next to telephone! that's neat!) Rooms were ethnic and well decorated. the balcony was nice attached to the suite the common areas were well kept - neat and tidy. facilities including swimming pool, sauna and jacuzzi were all in excellent working state. I will definitely visit them again before i die :)

              After 2 weeks of work in Patan, Kathmandu I needed a couple of days to recharge before heading home. Gokarna was the perfect place - heated rooms, very comfortable beds and pillows, tv with a million channels, good food, great service, fresh air. I went on the two hour forest walk which was stunning. The spa treatment was magical. I can't recommend Gokarna enough!

              A forest getaway at its best...with Golf!!”

              Being located in a forest reserve it is truly a quiet getaway from the hustle bustle of regular city hotels. The Gold Course is a fabulous walk. The hotel retains the "in Nature" feel.

              The first thing we did after checking in was to go on a jungle walk off the main golf course. The quiet of the forest was broken only by the bustling of the monkeys in the trees and the scores of spotted dear prancing away as we approached. The meal at the clubhouse restaurant overlooked the fairway and was the perfect "relaxed meal". Some much needed spa treatments following the long walk set us up for dinner which we chased at a decently well stocked bar with a pool table and the treat of a lovely "hookah" sitting in the garden outside. The meals were more than filling, and delivered on the expected flavour as well. The friendliness of the staff deserves a mention. Highly recommended for a couple of days to just "get-away". Not recommended for families with children who aren't into the outdoors life.

Sumptuous meal (dinner) with drizzle after brief rain in march was not too cold but unforgetful experience.

              Kathmandu is a poor country. It can be hot, dusty, chaotic and difficult to navigate. Gokarna Forest Resort is a blessed oasis within the city. The food is terrific and the staff is great. It is on the pricey side but staying there was the best decision we made.

              About the disappointing services at Gokarna Forest Resort”

              Here are my encounters. (1) We arrived shortly after 12:00 on December 17, 2016, but we were told that the check-in time was after 14:00. We had a walk then. However, the check-in time is clearly indicated as 12:00 both at your Agoda website and in the confirmation email. (2) They gave us a room near the open air court, where there has been an issuance company’s party. They made speeches for almost the whole afternoon through the loud speaker. More unfortunately, their BBQ supper was followed. We could not stand for smoky haze. So they moved us to a central room (Room 222) at a different wind direction. (3) However, this room was just above the stage of the BBQ party where people were singing and dancing. Anyone could imagine how noisy it was. (4) We had to walked here and there in the cold outside till 22:10 when the disco music was stopped. (5) when I tried to make bed, I found that one side of mattress functioned badly. That is, some springs inside were too loose and were not resilient at all. (6) They then changed a mattress, but this mattress was about 20cm narrower than the bed base. The guest may easily hit the bed base and get hurt. (7) It was my turn to make bed. Then I found about three coin sized stains on the duvet cover. Very disgusting. I thought that was semi solidified human liquid. No matter what it was, it was evident that the hotel had not changed it for the new guest! (8) We finally went to bed after 23:30. The workers started to disassemble and remove the stage outside at 6:30. It was big and sharp noise again. I had to go out and stop them at 7:00. So our stay at the 5-star Gokarna Forest Resort became a suffering. The hotel manager sent us to Hotel Yak & Yati by a complimentary car, but refused to make any refund due to the Nepal legal and taxation restrictions.

              Quick get away”

              We decided to ride our bikes up to Gorkana from Kathmandu city which was not as scenic as we had hoped so I recommend getting a taxi. The indoor pool was quite nice and there are sauna's in both the male and female change rooms. Our room was really nice to relax in, especially the huge bathroom. If you decide to go on the nature walk around the grounds you must pay for a guide, which is totally necessary so as not to get lost. I recommend bringing long socks or waterproof boots as there are ALOT of leeches which can ruin the walk if you're not prepared.

              Great spot to relax for a few days to unwind. Went on a beautiful walk through the forest and saw 10 lovely deer in the forest. Don't miss the forest walk. You can play golf if you want here or go to the driving range and hit a few balls for fun. Rooms were a good value for Nepal, good service.....

              Loved it!”

              After a 15 day overland tour from New Delhi to Kathmandu, I spent a few days at Gokarna Resort relaxing and recharging. It was the perfect place to do this. Quiet with fabulous staff. Great breakfast was included and loved the forrest walk. Only downside was spa. I had one treatment where I felt rushed and completely anonymous. I had planned on a few more treatments, but didn't bother. Other than that, I loved the whole experience!

              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.

              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.

              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!

              Location, staff and the space

              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
