"Thank f**k that's over," Gervais wrote. "I had a blast actually. It was by far my favourite of the three hosting stints."
The 50-year-old went on to re-affirm that he is not interested in returning to the show, even though NBC has confirmed that is welcome back to emcee the show for a fourth year.
"I've told my agent to never let me be persuaded to do it again though," Gervais continued. "It's like a parachute jump. You can only really enjoy it in retrospect when you realise you didn't die and it was quite an amazing thing to do."
This year's Golden Globes pulled in 16.84 million viewers, dropping slightly from last year.
