Resort is quiet and peaceful and is totally oriented toward scuba diving. These folks are the best if you want to learn scuba diving. My teenaged son and I stayed here for 8 days. Rooms are comfortable & clean without being extravagant. Its just 50 meters away from the aquamarine waters. No powercuts either as they have gensets. Food is... More

Manish is the person who you need to train you if you want to learn SCUBA. He is the best trainer you will come across. The staff was very friendly and the place was too good. See it to belive it. 200 on 100

Barefoot Scuba made my first visit to the Andamans so awesome, it'll have me coming back for more! Barefoot Scuba Resort made our stay at a Sea Facing Cottage very relaxing after a great day of diving! Our cottage was cute, clean and well maintained, and the staff were friendly and helpful. It is an added bonus that they are... More

My husband and I stayed in one of the AC cottages facing the beach. It had an amazing view of the ocean. The cottage was spacious, clean and offered peaceful sleep. The balcony facing the ocean was perfect to just sit and enjoy the view and read a book. The beach is 100 mts away from the cottage. Be sure... More

We had a wonderful experience staying at the Barefoot scuba resort. The place is just a minute from the beach. The cottage cost us Rs. 3000/- per day. They had the resemblance of a ten when you enter but sufficient space. Loved the huge, semi circled bathroom. It doesn't feel too luxurious, rather rustic. The sun goes down pretty early... More

The response is quick, and booking was very... More

I had been with barefoot scuba. Not only the coral reefs and clarity of water. They had really reliable trainer and the equipment. Time they spend with you is also amazing. You might have to wait for your turn for approximately 30 min bit the experience you get is amazing... Must do if you are visiting Andaman.

Although we didn't stay here, the place was great. After spending the day on beach 7, walked up for some snacks. The food was to die for with icy cold beers too. The service was really good too! Came a few times, both times getting an up close and personal viewing of Raj, the Andamans famous elephant.
