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
