We had booked air conditioned sea facing Duplex cottage from which the view of the blue ocean is magnificent. The beach is literally a stone throw away from the cottage. Both Rooms, ground floor and upper floor room was very clean and are well maintained. Had a great time staying there

After a tedious and lengthy ordeal, we finally decided to book this resort for two nights at Havelock. We chose the air-conditioned Sea Facing Duplex Cottages which provided splendid view of the blue ocean in the front.

If you want to be at the centre of all the activity in havelock and still have a quiet, luxury trip - this is the place for you. The sea facing duplex cottages are airconditioned and spacious and look out directly into the sea and the white sand beach. Needless to say more. The food at Cafe Del Mar is... More

We stayed in Barefoot Scuba Resort for 3 days in the month of April 2014 during our trip to Andamans. It is a gem of a place with very friendly, highly courteous and efficient staff. The exceptionally clean, sea facing duplex cottages are magnificent with breath-taking views of the sea. The Resort's restaurant 'Café Del Mar' too serves exquisite cuisine.... More

we used the Barefoot Scuba Resort only for the Dive Shop, and were very impressed by the quality of equipment, instructors and safety standards. Kirtan, David and their team were outstanding during our snorkeling and dives. a very professional setup.
