Gokarna Forest Resort

5.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Stayed for 5 days, had a glorious time! Ask for a room with a forest view. So peaceful and beautiful! The food was great, service was fantastic. All the staff are really pleasant and nice. The only thing is I wish guests were allowed to walk through the forest paths without a guide, at least some of them.

Gorkarna is a combination of beautiful greenery and modern hotel. We enjoyed the Spa , food and the rooms. But most delightful time was spending time in the beautiful gardens and forest .Thank you GFR.

The resort is breathtaking with its greenery, deer, amenities... The staff is simply amazing - Ms.Bandana made our stay extra comfortable and went out of the way to help us. We loved the food and highly recommend GoKarna

This resort was part of a tour that we did whilst in Kathmandu or Dustmandu as I have now named it. It was lovely to stay at this resort after staying in some ordinary hotels during our month long visit to Nepal, Tibet and Bhutan. The staff were lovely at reception, restaurant and spa. I can recommend this Hotel it was a shame we only checked in late and left very early the next morning, We really would have loved to stay an few extra nights to take in what this resort has too offer.

I found the hotel facilities sounds the best place of Kathmandu. I fully enjoyed with jungle walk, beautiful golf ground and other facilities available around the resort. The services have been provided very good. The staff are found very professional and well behaved.

Located in a quiet and tranquil yet very accessible from Kathmandu city, Gokarna Forest Resort is definitely one of the best resorts I have been to thus far. It has everything. Beautiful rooms, well trained staff, delicious food and excellent facilities for outdoor and indoor activities. I look forward to going back there again soon when I am in Nepal. Thank you for your kind hospitality.

The Gokarna Forest Resort is a wonderful resort with a beautiful golf course and gardens. We watched deer's and monkeys during the early morning and evenings walks. The rooms are extremely large and more than comfortable, we could not ask for anything better. The customer service and food was excellent and we were greeted with smiles where ever we went. This is definitely a 5 star resort and we will stay longer on our next visit to Nepal.

The Gokarna Forest Resort is a lovely property and golf course. We saw a lot of animals such as deer and monkeys in the early morning and early evening. The rooms are extremely large and comfortable. The food was excellent as well as the customer service.

I had taken ill just before getting to Nepal and after looking on Tripadvisor decided on this hotel instead of the one in the centre of town For us it was a perfect decision the hotel is quiet the air is much cleaner than in town. Service and staff were all wonderful. After our trip to Pokhara we chose to stay here again on our return. If there might be a downside it would be traveling to the tourist sights as the roads are really terrible In my opinion this was not a problem Should we return to Katmandu this would be our hotel of choice

An excellent Property to spend time with family + friends. Very many options to spend time in leisure for all age Catagory. They've complimentary shuttle service to City / Town thrice since morning + pick up once in afternoon. Airport pick up + drop is quite costly though, this should be rather subsidised or at cost basis, if not Complimentary. Overall good to stay.
