An awesome place to reside at.
Everyone was helpful. In fact i read the reviews before going and i was scared but i feel i was just stupid to doubt on them.
The owner the staff everyone at your service at any give point.
2 mins walk to Baga and at the central point of Goa gives this place a better charm.
Beautiful location.although your at the central location of Goa the backyard gives you a feel of the Village.Open fields a beautiful pool and a beer,yes that's the way to chill at Goa.
Waiting for my next trip.Lua Nova u were too good.
Richard

Room Tip: Take a Pool side room.Its awesome.

How to start with. It was a horrible stay at Lua Nova. There are very little staffs in the hotel. So room service is really bad. We checked in 5 hours late but the rooms were not ready. Some AC work was going on in the room. So we waited one hour in the lobby. For one entire night there was no power in the room, when asked to fixed it they said there are no electrician available. WE SLEPT IN THE HOTEL LOBBY ENTIRE NIGHT WITH MOSQUITO BITES. One day we asked to clean the room but the boy refused to do it repeatedly. he said that he will not do such dirty job. They claim that they have a car parking facility but they don't have. So we parked our car in front of a nearby house just couple of steps away from the hotel entrance. Next day all four tyres were flattened. Somebody has leaked the tyres intentionally. SO MY ADVICE, DON'T EVEN THINK OF BOOKING THIS HOTEL. REST IS ON YOU.

Room Tip: Don't go for this hotel unless you really have a tight budget or you don't find any other pl...

Seriously, the people at reception were absolutely lovely and the people at the. restaurant/bar were great too! Given this was the second place I stayed in in Goa, I'm telling you it was quite good in comparison to other options! I loved it all things considered. Trust me on this!

Just back from 2 weeks at the Lua Nova. Although it's described as being in Calangute it's actually in Baga, on the outskirts overlooking fields so nice and quiet, but still easy reach of the beach and a variety of restaurants. It's a small hotel with friendly helpful staff and a nice relaxed atmosphere. The rooms are basic but in keeping with other hotels in the price range. The food was great and reasonably priced - an amazing range of dishes.I'd stay here again for the location and the quiet relaxed atmosphere.

Room Tip: The small rooms are very small - worth asking for a large one. Not all rooms have AC

If you are group of guys looking for a budget hotel in the lively North Goa, Lua Nova can solve the purpose. It's a Basin amenities hotel, with AC/nonAC rooms. Room was clean, though we had to especially asked to clean the room while staying. Toilets were clean, basic, but without hangers! A small swimming pool adds a lot value to the Hotel's attraction with a small bar serving most liquors and the fenny.
It's located at walking distance from the Baga beach, and thus is also very near to Calungute and the Mackie's Saturday market. No parking was a problem, but in Goa you can park almost anywhere...
Food we really like, though had doubts on there scrambled eggs...Staff was very friendly!
Overall, A Budget hotel worth stayong...
