    Bandana was an amazing host and really helped us get situated, from showing us our room to providing us with a complimentary foresr walk. This place is awesome and worth the cost. The grounds are beautiful, and they have an amazing club house and golf course

    Lovely hotel on the outskirts of busy Kathmandhu in a lush green forest. We booked this as our last night in Nepal for a treat after trekking for three weeks to Gokyo and EBC and to get away from the hustle and bustle of the Thamel. The hotel itself is lovely and one of the reasons we booked it is because of its pool and spa which was a nice luxury after being in the mountains for so long. You can also have guided walks in the forest at a cost (10$ pp/hr), which was a nice option though a shame you have to pay extra for it as the forest is surely a key feature. We ate at the Clubhouse restaurant which is a thai/ chinese and the food was great. It was also enjoyable having a long chat with the staff there as it was quiet, who looked after us extremely well. Its worth upgrading to a premium room as this is in the main building and we thought this looked nicer than the cottages which are a short walk away. The only hiccup we had which was a bit of a problem initially was an Indian wedding had been booked for three days and it started about 20 minutes after we arrived around midday with very loud awful techno music which completely destroyed the tranquil atmosphere of the hotel and continued most of the afternoon. Having come here to relax we weren't happy at all, and having not been told prior, but the hotel staff were really very helpful and did their best to help by giving us a complimentary forest walk to get away from the noise and a dinner which was much appreciated.

    Relaxing, calm spa hotel in the middle of a hectic Kathmandu- a great way to escape the noise, hustle and bustle! Big pool, sauna, steam room and hot tub. Two restaurants and a bar and large clean rooms. Friendly service!

    I really loved my stay at Gokarna Forest Resort. This was my first trip to Nepal and while I was only able to stay for one week, the staff made my experience so positive that I am determined to return. I enjoyed the excellent breakfast buffet daily and was so well looked after by the team, especially Kieran who provided me with excellent customer service and a warm, friendly welcome every day. I also had good food in the bar and via room service. The range of cuisines was vast and the quality of everything I tried was good, especially the momo! I ate approximately one thousand of these delicious local dumplings and washed them down with a fair amount of cold Gurkha beer, enjoying both enormously. I swam in the beautiful pool daily and indulged myself with multiple spa massage treatments which were all just wonderful. While I'm sure all the staff are excellent, if Asha is working while you're here I can not recommend her highly enough: she has magic hands and helped me with a couple of issues with my lower back for which I am so grateful. The hotel also arranged for me to have transport for a couple of trips into the city for a very reasonable price, and as a woman traveling alone this was invaluable. Kathmandu is a VERY busy and bustling city, and knowing I was safe with a local guide helped me to enjoy the experience rather than being nervous or worse, getting terribly lost! Highly recommend and looking forward to my next visit.

    Outstanding in Every Respect

    Outstanding in every way. The highlight was breakfast which was one of the best in terms of variety and freshness. The dinner was also incredible with me ordering butter chicken multiple times and trying other local dishes. The service and attentiveness of the staff were top notch. I ended up extending my stay for over a week due to the kindness of the staff and the phenomenal comfort and quality of the hotel. It felt like I was staying at a private estate and was part of the family. As a solo female traveler this was a great experience for me. I recommend the massage services as they were out of this world! There is something very special about their massages. However, the pedicure services were acceptable by comparison (even when given by the same treatment provider). I believe they could benefit from some additional training for added comfort to take it to the next level like the massages are. For example, soaking the feet longer, resting the soaking bowl on a stool instead of the ground, two coats of polish and and overcoat, etc. This is just because the massage treatment was world class and the pedicure treatment could be improved to also be world class. That being said, the price was fair and this is not a criticism as much as room for improvement in an establishment that goes above and beyond in every way.
