“Excellent Perfect Awesome”
Reviewed 4 February 2014

If you go to Goa please stay in this property, its is just perfectly situated around 5 minutes away from Baga. They have a beautifull pool and extremely courteous staff and the rooms are amazing. I mean for 2500 a night its like a 5 star. The bar is open till 3 am with good music, the food is awesome and usually served untill 12 midnight. Infact the best room is 109 as the balcony faces the pool and is closest to the bar and restaurant and the guys serve you drinks and food in the balcony. Three nights in january 26th Jan to 29th was awesome. I am so happy that i will definitely go again. My first 3 nights in Bella Wista Wado was horrifyingly terrible, but when i came to Lua Nova, i was like WOOOOOW!!!

Room Tip: Any rooms facing the pool on the ground floor, especially 109

This place is clean, neat and quiet. It's got an amazing restaurant with great food served round the clock. The room was clean and big. The ambience is nice and quiet.

The cons are that it is a bit of walk from Baga Beach (yes it isn't in Calangute; it's in Baga). So it's a good 15 minute walk to the beach, which is fine really but if you're looking for somehting on the beach, then you need to know this.

The reception staff was a bit laidback. Like they told me credit card machine didn't work but actually they just didn't know how to handle it. It worked fine once I insisted they make it work :-).

Overall, great value for money!

We stayed in Lua Nova based on my cousin's recommendation for a night in last December. Finding this hotel might be a task if you don't know the exact key words like 'Opposite lane to Hotel Le Calypso', as the hotel is inside a lane and sign boards are not very attractive/big enough to catch anyone's attention quickly. The location of the hotel is good as it is in the middle of Baga Beach Road, very near to Brittos and Tittos. The best part of the hotel is the sitting arrangements with a hill view around the Guitar shaped amazing swimming pool. The rooms are neat and clean with all basic amenities including a mini fridge present but comparatively small bathroom. We got a ground floor room with a small balcony. In lunch we ordered indian and goan cuisine which was average and not up to the mark compared to their prices I felt, my selection of food might be wrong here. Overall this is a decent place for staying in Baga since the location is very good to access all major attractions of Baga beach yet have a peaceful and comfortable stay. I’ll surely come back and recommend other too.

Room Tip: Get room with pool view/hill view in upper floors

A group of us stayed here, what amazed us was the vicinity to the beach. Baga beach is a mere 5 minutes away. The hotel is centrally located and has good connectivity. The rooms were average but they were clean. The room service is decent. The view from the room is good too, you can see the mountains and open fields. The swimming pool was fun, and clean. Their check out time was a bit ridiculous at 9AM. Overall it is a fine hotel if you just intend to sleep the night and not spend much time there.

This was the worst experience of my life. The hotel staff was very unprofessional and rude. 1:We booked 3 rooms all rooms were on different floors. Our family members had to stay on different floors. 2: The restaurant guys kept on adding fake bills. After lot of argument, they fixed the bill. 3: These guys don't provide drinking water. EVEN after you want to pay. You have to buy your water from outside and bring in. 4: If you want towel from 2nd floor, they will ask you to come down and collect yourself. 5: They asked for swimming pool fee. Its my request choose any other hotel BUT NOT THIS

We stayed in Lua Nova for a night and the first thing that comes to my mind is the brilliant location of the hotel. Its located right at the road bifurcating away from Brittos on Baga beach. The swimming pool was surprisingly very nice since its pretty deep and you can see the mountains and paddy fields while having a good time in the pool. The food from the bar/restaurant attached is average but the guys serving them are very nice and cordial. Although I did notice that their check out time is ridiculous for a place like goa. 9 AM in the morning! By the time you are done partying and head back to the hotel its time to pack up and if you want a late check out you need to pay 500 bucks extra which we didnt really mind given the option to sleep peacefully and recover from our hangover. Overall a fine hotel if you dont intend to spend your time in it and just want for sleeping at night.

We (group of 5 friends) were on the lookout for a place to stay near baga and the hotel suited our plans perfectly. Had a hard time finding the hotel due to a blocked entrance (for some construction activity), everything else was a breeze though. An open mind and a look at the bill calms the nerves significantly. Enjoyed the pool too. Recommended if looking for a place near baga.
