I went to Barefoot Scuba for a day of scuba diving (early March). I was not able to get rooms there as my trip was planned just a month before. I had done my OW certification almost a year back and wanted to brush up on my diving so I signed for their lite scuba review. Sonali was my instructor... More

Basically we visited Havelock for Scuba dive and serene beaches. And definitely Barefoot Scuba is a place for that. We booked our accommodation and dive through their Chennai office. We have even asked for transfer from Portblair to havelock and back. They arranged it meticulously. Very Professional service and courteous staff. Resort offers three kind of accommodation. AC Cottage (Sea... More

Very efficient advance booking system including accommodation in Port Blair and transfers to and from the airport. The resort is beyond the busiest area of the island so nice and peaceful. We stayed in both a sea-facing duplex (the sea is some distance away) and in a tented cottage which was immense, very romantic and easily my favourite. On site... More

I have recently returned from 5 days' diving at Barefoot Scuba resort on Havelock Island. The accommodation comfortable without any luxuries, which is exactly what I look for on a diving holiday; I want to spend money on diving rather than frills. The cottage I stayed in had a balcony, and looked straight out onto the beautiful beach. The whole... More

We stayed 3 nights at Barefoot Scuba . The staff is relatively sympathetic and helpful . Breakfast is good but fresh fruit sevia be more careful . The area is magnificent . Optima option to stay on this island. It is a pity not have internet available to guests.

Had a amazing experience, the staff is very polite and always there to help. We stayed in the AC villa for 5 nights, complete privacy and a very friendly atmosphere. Autorik charged 50rs from Jetty to Barefoot Scuba, be clear about your bookings as they have Barefoot scuba & Barefoot resort. Pictures on the website are different from the actual... More

Cafe del mar "the restaurant" offers great food. The staff is well cooperative we went late for the scuba dive as we didn't know about the timing for the dive session. Still with the help... More

Overall we had a good experience at barefoot scuba. I wasn't particularly fond of the fact that they MADE us book 2 activities if we wanted to stay with them - my boyfirend and I would've probably gone for 2 activities anyway, but the fact that it's a requirement in order to book the overnight stay I find a bit...

We booked ourselves with Barefoot Scuba as we were planning to do our dives with them. Plus they came highly recommended by Lonely Planet. We stayed for a week at the tented cottage which was great. Fabulous 4 poster bed with ample storage facilities and a great bath area. The property well, is a small haven by itself. There are... More

Last month, this time i was fast asleep in Port Blair. Reaching Havelock and Barefoot Scuba the next day was to be an experience, much more than i could've imagined. Andamans is truly a very special place and Barefoot understands and respects that. Not a day goes by that i do not think of all of them and the experience... More
