12 Best Places To Stay in Gokarna - 2020 (376 Reviews)

Packed with tourists during the peak season, it can be very difficult to find places to stay in Gokarna at rush hour. It is advisable that travellers make arrangements for their stay in advance when planning a trip here. There are many options available to tourists for places to stay in Gokarna town as well as the beaches. Some of the best available options for accommodation in Gokarna are three to five star hotels, luxury resorts, homestays, holiday cottages and more.

Depending on your budget, a three star hotel like Hotel Om International or something like Kedige homestay are some of your best available options, among others. You may also choose your accommodation according to its location such as the beaches where you will find options such as Gokarna International Beach Resort, Kudle palace resort, Little Paradise Inn and more. 

If you are visiting Gokarna with the purpose of relaxing on the beach and enjoying the surrounding environs, we suggest picking a place close to a particular beach, so that you will save yourself the hassle of travelling in between your accommodation and the beach. Moreover, a beach side location will be best for taking the scenic views of the sea and the nature around it. Most tourists pick the peak season between the months of October and March to visit Gokarna and thus you will surely find ample crowds around this time. Make sure that if you are visiting Gokarna for the first time, you carry all the necessary items for travel and tourist maps with you since it is hard to find a good local tourist guide here and sometimes you might have to rely upon these maps to guide you around the town.

"I'm from Chennai and personally speaking this was a best experience of a beach trek in my life. If you want to experience something wild, explore nature's beauty, dance and have fun in the beach water and sand and feel the bliss of staying in tents in the night time, go for it, its worth it. I'm suggesting my friends this place who are all planning for trips. Also to mention our trek leads Shravani and Dhruv kudos to them as well. It's not a easy job to arrange and coordinate with different sets of people and make a successful trek. They made this to be a memorable one. I and my friends had a good time those 2 days and packed up the trip with lots of memories to cherish. People reading my reviews, go for this because it's something special"

Visiting gokarna was a amazing experience, away from city life, it gives that peace and silence that one requires in life from time to time.Just sitting near the beach and feeling the waves touch your feet that makes you feel like you are floating early in the morning with a feeling that you are the only person there being carried away by the presence of endless sea is an experience worth ones time. Its a place to relax, rather than call it a trek, as one doesn't walk much. Journey with thrillophilia went really well with a trek lead who was a friendly person.Even though the first night in the bus with a small group of people was awkward, it was fun and enjoyable the next two days.Stayed an ocean scenery,the host received us well.The temp was hot in the afternoon , played volleyball which took away our energy but it was one of the highlights of the trip. The camp fire during the night time with everyone sharing stories was a good experience. On the way back to bangalore visited mirjan fort on jan 26th jan, Good for clicking photos as well. The food was average. I'd like to suggest that instead of trying to visit every possible beach which is exhausting it would be better to visit fewer beaches a spend enough time and enjoy what the nature offers.The people that I travelled with were entusiastic and fun to be with thorugh out the journey. The only drawback of the trip was the van it was not a comfortable as I expected. Overall it was a great experience and suggest people to visit gokarna.

"It was an amazing trekking trip, it's kind of a beach walk so don't expect long trekkings. Gokarna's beaches are surrounded by hills so we have to climb the hills to reach some beaches like half moon, paradise and belekan beach. It was well organized. I was not happy with the transportation part, bus does not have enough leg space even for normal height people. And food was just average. I liked the trekking part and enjoyed. "
