We slept better than we have done in years, being lullabied to sleep every night by the lapping waves on the beach in part Bure, part Glampining tent, amazing. The food is... More

Beautiful setting with a lot more space and privacy than Mantaray Resort, and a lot less people. The staff were wonderful here. The resort has the right attitude and philosophy when it comes to swimming with the Mantarays. Given that there are Mantaray researchers living on the island you can rest assured that they operate in the best interest of... More

This isn't what I would call a resort but rather an eco-lodge, an authentic island experience. The private beach bungalows are just tents with a roof and hard floors, so it's not a proper room. The beds are nice and the ensuite bathrooms are cool but beware - they have no warm water on the island so it will always... More

I stayed in a premium ensuite bure as well as a shared bure. The private ones are absolutely worth it. The insides are luxurious and face the absolutely stunning lagoon. Having your own private bathroom and outdoor shower was amazing. Staff was so warm and friendly, I had new friends within days. I also thought the food was always quite... More

We are a family of 5 with kids aged 13,13 and 15 and spent 3 nights at barefoot. My wife and myself had an ensuite "tent" and the 3 kids were in a 3 bed dorm. The ensuite tent was very comfortable with big fly screened windows and doors and a great outdoor shower and toilet. It has a concrete... More

Barefoot Island was a dream-relaxing, chilled and beautiful. Its like 5 star camping-all you need but no unnecessary first world crap.Staff were great, accommodation, clean and comfortable-definitely worth paying the extra for ensuite if you can afford it-if you cant the shared facilities were clean and no queueing. Food was fine. Swimming with the Manta rays was awesome. Will definitely... More

Staff and service was excellent, our premium bure was nice, clean, tidy, only what surprised us was that it was maid of tent, which at the end was nice as we had fresh air, stunning sunset views and own bathroom. Swimming with Manta ray is just amazing. Food provided as full board was actually tasty!

Anyone looking for a fantastic authentic Fijian experience, you must go to Barefoot Island Resort. The second we stepped of the boat we were greeted by the warm hearts of lovely local Fijians. The people made the trip and we loved being immersed in the nature of Fiji. We swam with Manta rays which was unreal and snorkelled along beautifully... More
