Should be better.
Some parts of the property are in need of renovation or at least a thorough clean. The mattresses were old and uncomfortable. Our bathroom had mould on the ceiling. The mat and shower curtain in the bath were ancient and should be replaced. The bar area was nice. The staff do their best. The location was quiet and calm and preferable to Kathmandu.

The best resort money can buy
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

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.

Peaceful location: nice spa, new chef needed
This is a large, historic hotel in a quiet area just outside of Kathmandu. It is a peaceful relief from the chaos of Kathmandu, but there is absolutely no alternatives to those provided by the hotel. This is a particular problem because the hotel food is terrible. A new chef is desperately needed. Easily the worst food we ate in Nepal. Also there is no place to walk/run outside the hotel. The two saving graces to our visit were: 1) the spa for the hotel is lovely. Sauna, Jacuzzi, pool are excellent. 2) There was an Indian wedding going on while we were there and joining in the celebration was a fabulous experience.

Great property!
The hotel is very nice including the staff and hospitality. They go out of their way to help guests. The rooms are large and the property is well-maintained. The only downside is that the food is quite pricey..

City-based resort in traditional design
As a resort, Gokarna offered traditional architecture and design with the attributes of a modern and sophisticated hotel. Its main highlights were its location within a forest reserve and its open spaces which encouraged exploring and relaxing in the open. The forest served a dual purpose of providing opportunities for guided walks and filtering the air pollution from the city. Its stand-alone sports complex offered a sizeable pool and gym, and the spa. Our room, a junior suite, was spacious with good views and provided all the amenities expected of a high-star hotel such as a safe, coffee/tea maker and fridge. All staff were friendly, helpful and resourceful. We had all our meals in the hotel. Both the buffet and ala carte menu offered a very wide range of Nepali and Western options. A good option if you want the experience of a resort in a city.
