Situated inside the serene Gokarna Protected Forest yet only 10 kilometers from Kathmandu city and Tribhuvan International Airport the Gokarna Forest Resort is situated on what was historically the private royal hunting ground of the erstwhile Kings of Nepal.
Steeped in rich historical and cultural significance the main complex of the resort is a remarkable blend of Malla and Rana period architecture. The resort sits within 470 acres of the ancient Gokarna Forest with the majestic Himalayas providing a dramatic backdrop.
Gokarna Forest Resort offers well-furnished exotic superior rooms of high quality. All the rooms are fully equipped with air condition, smoke detectors, electronic safe locks, two-bottles of complimentary mineral water, luxurious herbal bath amenities, and tea/coffee maker. For your relaxation and comfort you have free access to Sauna, Jacuzzi, Gymnasium, Swimming pool and morning yoga.
Some rooms have interior décor that portraits classical Nepali culture in a romantic ambience while others provide breathtaking views of the golf course, the jungle and the sprawling courtyard.
Inspired by the myth, magic and mystery of the once forbidden valley, David Kidd of Gleneagles Golf Developments, pitted his skills against those of nature, creating a golf masterpiece. Spread over 140 acres at 4,550 ft above sea level, the 6,755 yard par 72 course boasts the only bentgrass greens on an 18 hole course in South and South East Asia.
Professionals from across the world have visited Gokarna Forest Resort to experience the divine sprit of the environment and uniqueness of the golf course. The serenity and settings are overwhelming with the only distraction probably being the sighting of a spotted deer, a barking deer or monkeys who wander freely in the vicinity.
Soft cushions of local Bermuda fairways, lush unyielding forests, winding streams, wandering hills and valleys that open to a holy river’s plain. Cynical monkey’s watch your progress. Shy spotted deer peer through the trees. The lofty Himalayas keep your score. A delight for recreational golfers and one of the pleasurable highlights of the professional tour in the region.
