Gokarna Golf Resort - INTRODUCTION

Gokarna Forest Golf Resort & Spa is located deep inside the serene temperate Gokarna Forest, traditionally the private Royal hunting grounds of the Kings of Nepal. Situated within the city limits of Kathmandu, capital of Royal Kingdom of Nepal, this luxury Hotel Resort, Golf Course and Spa is operated by Le Meridien, a leading global chain of luxury hotels and resorts.

A winding, climbing road through the forest leads to sixteen exotic cottage rooms, set serenely besides century old trees. The perfect setting for an unforgettable experience.

An adjacent restored Hunter's Lodge, once used by Royal Shikaris, provides the reception, bar, and restaurant facilities in an authentic traditional ambiance. A comfortable conference room provides place for up to 45 people.

The Spa includes a variety of rejuvenating courses, emphasizing Ayurvedic treatments. The Health club encompasses an indoor temperature controlled pool, and the changing rooms each have a Sauna, Steam room, and Jacuzzi. The large well equipped gym (opening late 2003) will be one of the finest in the country. A quiet walk to the clubhouse brings you instant access and preferential tee times at South Asia's finest resort golf resort.
