We didn't stay with Barefoot Scuba, but came here to dive as guests of the affiliate resort - Barefoot at Havelock. The experience was super. The staff were very well informed, very reassuring, and definitely encouraging. Went diving on my birthday and was made to feel very special by the team that took us diving. Highly recommend the dive centre.... More

Of our 2 day stay in Havelock we spent a night at the Barefoot Scuba Resort - and I am so glad we did so! This beach is very different from the Radha nagar Beach - the color is much more stunning, the sea is very calm, shallow and a delight! We stayed in one of the sea facing cottages... More

I visited the resort with my mother for diving. Unfortunately our days overlapped with the passing of Cyclone Hudhud so the conditions for diving were bad and visibility poor. I could dive for only 2 days but the dive sites were good and the diving staff was professional. Special mention for Rehaan, my dive instructor for the 4 dives. He... More

I went to Barefoot Scuba for a leisure trip. It is the only property with sea-facing Duplex rooms on the Havelock Island. The hotel also offers a few other types of rooms, to suit your pocket and there many long staying guests, who learn Scuba-diving. The property is located very close to the sea and offers Scuba Diving as its... More

We stayed at their other property on Beach #7 but did our snorkelling with Barefoot Scuba. South-Button Island and Tamarind Camp were the snorkel locations. It was a brilliant experience. Our guide was Meer, a real jolly good fellow. It is good to have a amiable company and he took good care of us- two non-swimmers. Once inside the water,... More

We stayed in a 'Sea Facing AC rooms'. The beach is very quite and very beautiful there with the beach view from the room. Room has a living room and bathroom in the groundfloor and bedroom and balcony in the first floor. We went for scuba diving from the same resort which had partnered with PADI.

I stayed at their luxury resort (Barefoot @ Havelock), but dived at this one. Fantastic dive school with an excellent team of dive guides and instructors. The location is excellent if you like restaurants and shops close by, and their accommodations are for budget travelers and scuba divers. It is still worth a look if you're happy with cheap and...

I stayed at Barefoot while completing my Open Water. They have cozy little huts for 300 rupees a night if you are diving. It's basic, just a bed, light, and fan, but what more do you really need? Our instructor Raoul was incredibly nice. The guests and staff hung out together the entire trip. The ATMs weren't working and they... More
