A well thought off and executed establishment. The villas are unique and appropriately furnished. The staff are courteous and the service is great. The swimming pool could be a little bigger though. On the whole a nice to spend you holiday as it's well distanced from the madness of Baga.

This place is tucked at the back of a main roundabout, miles away from the beach. The surroundings are very ordinary amongst bush and rubbish. To charge a high tariff and not provide wi-fi internet is a very inconvenient for any tourist. Too far from cafes and restaurants.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Joie de Vivre is situated in a scenic & sleepy village in North Goa, India. It is approximately 5 kms to both the market town of Mapusa & to the nearby beach belt of Candolim-Calangute-Baga. Nestled in the idyllic village of Nagoa - Arpora, this boutique resort allows you to indulge in the quiet luxury of Goa’s yesteryear. Nagoa gives you an insight into the lives of the Goan people. The rustic setting and the tranquil environs teeming with the sights, sounds and sensations of the countryside, and evoking the pastoral charm of a fast disappearing era. While allowing for that recluse from city living, hot spots like Calangute, Baga, Anjuna, Mapusa and Panjim are all easily accessible from Nagoa. ... more   less
