Gokarna Forest Resort
Ranked #22 of 210 Hotels in Kathmandu
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 3 July 2005

The Meridien Gokarna Forest was once a retreat for the Royal family. It is a wonderfully relaxing place. We stayed here in March 2005 and we were very impressed. They have some very special offers and ours was excellent. The staff provided lots of extra touches in our room. Taking breakfast on the terrace of the new club house overlooking the beautiful golf course was a lovely way to start the morning. You could also choose to eat in the restaurant or breakfast in the garden. We both had a relaxing massage in the state of the art spa. Guided tours of the forest are available and sometimes the shy barking deer actually come right up to the hotel to eat. The hotel gardens are full of birdlife. A brand new section of the hotel has just been completed but the hotel has plenty of history. The restaurant was a former Royal Hunting Lodge and a tree outside the spa was filmed for use (greatly enlarged) in the film "Little Buddha" starring Keanu Reeves.

We found the staff to be very friendly. They really went out of their way to be helpful. We also took some extra trips with the hotel. Gokarna Forest is about half an hour away from the airport and we were collected. As we had planned to stay in central Kathmandu for the rest of our holiday, the hotel kindly transferred us at no extra charge. Central Kathmandu is exciting, busy and bustling and for us this was a perfect foil. giving us the best of both worlds.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Gokarna Forest Resort... A tranquil Heaven to quiet Hideaways.Situated within the city limits of Kathmandu, capital of Nepal, Gokarna Forest Resort is located inside the serene temperate Gokarna Forest, the former private Royal hunting grounds of the Kings of Nepal. A winding road climbs leads through the forest up to the main complex, comprising a mix of subtly majestic Malla period architecture, Rana period lodges, and sanctuaries harmoniously blending with nature. Further on exotic Forest View cottage rooms are set beside a century old restored Hunter's lodge. A quiet peaceful haven set between ancient towering trees with glimpses of the second fairway in the valley below make the perfect getaway for a few days of golf, relaxation and rejuvenation at the Spa, enchanting forest walks, and time close to nature. SPA & HEALTH CLUB Amongst majestic trees on the edge of a plateau overlooking Gokarna Forest and the grassed valley below, Harmony Spa combines therapeutic care with a natural environment impossible to recreate elsewhere. Included are a variety of rejuvenating courses, emphasizing Ayurvedic treatments within Ayura, a dedicated Ayurvedic treatment area, the Adam & Eve, and Serenity massage rooms. The Health club encompasses Apsara, the Beauty Treatment center, an indoor temperature controlled swimming pool, luxurious changing rooms each with a Sauna, Steam room, and Jacuzzi. The large well equipped gym, the finest in the country, overlooks the forest through large windows. GOLF COURSE Against the backdrop of the snow capped Himalayas, close to the heart of Kathmandu city, South Asia's finest, and one of the world's most spectacular Golf Resort Courses is stunningly set within 470 acres of the hundreds years old Gokarna Forest Reserve. Designed by David Kidd (Gleneagles Golf Developments of Scotland), the 6,715 yard par 72 course boasts the only Bent Grass Greens in South Asia, making it one of the highlights of the professional tour circuits in the region. The serenity and setting are overwhelming. Deer and monkey wander freely, as will the spirits of all who enter. Truly an enchanting sanctuary. ... more   less
