Thinking about Barefoot Island make me wanna cry. Yes, it was that beautiful! Imagine an island where you don't have to think about anything. All you have to do Is be yourself and relax. You don't even need to choose your meal from a menu. Three times a day they serve you amazing food. The water is crystal clear and... More

Words can not describe how amazing this place is, the accommodation is sensational directly on the beach my personal all time favourite an outside bathroom. The staff are superb always happy to see you with a big smile and bula. Did several dive trips with the dive shop and had a AWSOME time saw plenty of marine life each time.

There's too many words to describe this place and the people that work on the island, relaxing, beautiful, breathtaking, stunning, friendly...... the list goes on. Me and my partner had three nights in this magical place in a private lodge on the sunrise side. All the workers seem remember your names and always say BULA(hello) Any chance they get. P.S... More

Words can't explain what a beautiful experience we had on Barefoot Island in September 2014. We had our wedding there. We were a party of about 30, including some kids. The staff made it very special. It was more than we had expected and by far beyond our wildest dreams..! We recommend Barefoot to all who are wanting a completely... More

What can I say? The magic happened here - right time, right place, right people. Barefoot has the most stunning location of any beach hotel I've been to simply because if it's windy on one beach you're only a couple of minutes' walk (literally) from the other beach which will be lovely and calm. The off-beach snorkelling on Sunrise Beach... More

An awesome place to relax and charge your batteries. Try to get up early for the sunrise as the colors are amazing. Meals are well prepaired and taste good. The day can be spent sleeping in one of the hammocks right at the sea or with one of the many activities. From talks, walks and snorkeling to chatting and diving... More

I love this place, have to come back and stay for at least a week next time!. Stayed in a bure at sunset beach this time. Simple room with a great bed and only 15 steps to the sea where it was lovely to snorkel around. The concept of sitting people down at a certain time at the beachbar for... More

We were a bit worried when we first arrived. The staff greeted us didn't seem to know how to find our reservation (fully paid) and grounds and thatched burres looked tired and uninviting. But after a while this place turned into my favorite of 3 resorts we visited on this trip. Here is why: Snorkeling: Snorkeling off the Sun Rise... More
