Calangute hotels: Top 5

Posted on March 15, 2011 | HotelsNo Comment


One of the most beloved holiday destinations in India is Goa, especially during Christmas and New Year. Goa is mostly famous among the tourists for its churches and beaches. And one such famous beach is the Calangute beach. Nestled on the shore of North Goa as well as the Arabian Sea, Calangute beach is the hub of many attractions such as Fort Aguada, Condolim beach, and Baga beach. Therefore, many tourists prefer staying at one of the many Calangute hotels. In this list, you will come across the top 10 Calangute hotels that are great in their services and affordable in their prices. I hope that this will make your task easier in selecting your dreamland from the myriad of the stay hotels at the beach, which sometimes make choices difficult because of confusion.

Resort Palmarinha

This is in the Nagoa neighborhood near the Beach. Besides other basic facilities, the hotel offers two restaurants, conference rooms, and children’s club. The main feature of the both deluxe as well as one-bedroom suites is balcony from where you get the good views of the beach. Good conformability, courteous staff, and satisfying stay all rate this hotel ‘4’ from 1 (bad) to 5 (ideal) ranks. Bookings start from Rs. 1800. Above all, this hotel is near to all the beaches close by.

Lazylagoon Sarovar Portico Suites Calangute

Among the luxurious Calangute hotels, this is the top choice of the backpackers. The suites here offer a wonderful vista of the lagoon that is in the middle of North Goa. From here, you can easily access the well known beaches of Calangute, Anjuna, and Baga, which are just a few minutes walk away. There is a multicuisine restaurant, coffee shop, Barbeque restaurant, and facility of meals in rooms. Be ready to spend Rs. 4000 per room here.

Paradise Village Beach Resort

This is nestled centrally from where you can only explore the Baga Beach as well as Calangute Beach. However, it is worth a stay. The guestrooms feature balconies offering the cool vistas of the garden along with other amenities such as TV with satellite channels and refrigerators. I would recommend going for an AC room here. There is also a restaurant as well as a spa here. The room rates start here from Rs. 3000.

Calangute Grand

According to me, this is the top hotel here. I have been stayed in some Calangute hotels on the beach, but this is just matchless! Situated near the beach, this is an aparthotel accessible by a walk of only 10 minutes from the shore. The most loving features of this one are cleanliness, modern touch, extremely friendly staff, and good food of the restaurant. In the rooms, expect AC, balconies, and satellite TV. Rates begin from Rs. 2000.

Riviera De Goa Hotel Calangute

Nestled within 2 km from the Calangute shore, this is one more ideal hotel for stay. The best part is that this is a convenient starting point for exploring a myriad of attractions – Fort Aguada Beach, Bogmalo Beach, Goa Se Cathedral, Palolem Beach, and Church of Lady of Rosary. Rooms are well equipped and spacious, while the restaurant offers Goan, Indian, Oriental, Italian, as well as Continental cuisine. It is no less than luxurious resort where the rates start from Rs. 4000, but are worth it!

The peak season in Goa is from late September that continues until early March. This is the time when the weather is cool as well as dry. From May to June, the weather is usually hot. After these months, Goa is one of those regions in India, which obtains heavy monsoon showers as well as tropical thunderstorms. Even this time is very beautiful with greenery all around.
