Disappointed by the grounds
Despite being called Gorkana Forest Resort, the forest is only accessible if you pay 10 dollars per person for an hour's accompanied walk with a golf caddy. Otherwise, the hotel grounds are very limited. There are mountain bikes for hire, although I'm not sure where you could cycle to. The clubhouse has a lovely view over the golf course and does good food. The cottage rooms look into the forest but the balconies have no chairs.

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

8/10 Very good

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.
