Property Description

Far from the madding crowds and barely touched by the hand of man, all of the resort rooms are dotted along three unspoiled beaches, within walking distance of pristine coral reefs in protected marine parks. With visiting manta rays (seasonal May-Oct) as your neighbours and billions of stars overhead at night, you’ll be guaranteed some of the finest natural experiences that Fiji has to offer.

Barefoot Manta Island lies on the secluded volcanic island of Drawaqa, in the Southern Yasawa Islands of Fiji. The stunning coral gardens right off any of the three beaches are some of the best in Fiji.

Experience a new adventure every day! Swim with manta rays, snorkel, trek overland, visit islands and traditional villages, or experience some of the best dive sites in the Yasawa Islands. Tick that bucket list off - if you have always wanted to dive but never had the chance. Now and here is the time to take this opportunity with our experienced dive crew . Each afternoon and into the evenings take part in sunset swims, volleyball matches, star-gazing, and nightly entertainment - all part of the fun!

Barefoot Manta offers stunning coral gardens right off the beach where you can snorkel, kayak and swim with the local manta rays or spend a few lazy hours alternating between the hammock and lagoon.

The resort offers a variety of clean, comfortable accommodation from twin-share waterfront bures (beach huts) built and thatched in traditional style, to deluxe 4 sleeper dorms. Showers and toilets are communal with cool fresh water. Our Beachfront Safari and Beachfront Family rooms have their own bathrooms. Linen is supplied.

    Such a delightful stay with what felt like my long lost Fijian family. The beachfront bures are beautiful and twenty feet from the water. 3beaches to choose from. Snorkeling at Sunrise beach was spectacular. Simple and sublimely relaxing. Recommend highly!

    I really enjoyed my stay at barefoot manta. I particularly liked the fijian night on the Saturday with the dancing and kava ceremony. However not any gluten free options for breakfast, aside from fruit and eggs so that was disappointing. The staff were lovely and always remember your name. Recommend Jacob from the dive shop, as he is a very good scuba diving instructor, especially since it was my first time and made you feel at ease. Thought the huts you sleep in were really cool too.

    A beautiful, simple resort in a great location with 3 different beaches as well as a hill top walk, so it’s always possible to find a quiet spot to relax away from everyone. An all you can eat breakfast and good food in general. The staff are lovely. Dorm rooms were clean and right by the beach, which meant waking up/going to sleep with the sound of the waves. Things to improve: only two not private room hammocks at the moment, more are needed. As well as some sun shades on the beaches.

    We stayed in a dorm “tent” and came back for a second stay. Dorm had ceiling fans and great location! Could catch the sunrise from my bed:) staff is soo friendly- more than others we visited. Great pools, great sunset deck and great hiking around, although some trails could have been marked better:) but who doesn’t enjoy getting lost in the jungle. Big thank you to bartender Ali ( sorry for spelling wrong) Tim and Nathan for making our stay worthwhile and wanting to come back:)

    We had a great time here. Staff were very friendly, beautiful resort, snorkelling equipment included, good snorkelling coral and we were lucky enough to swim with manta rays at the end of the season. Coming from Blue Lagoon resort however the food options and quality wasn’t quite as good. No sun loungers or deck chairs was a shame. However would definitely recommend overall!

    We had our own beachfront bure and it was adorable. The room was beautiful with flowers and a private outdoor shower! The public showers and toilets were clean but not that nice, so I am glad we had our own ensuite. While there was nothing wrong with this resort - the food was good and there was lots to do - it seemed bigger and busier than other resorts and it was not our favourite.

    The food was overrated and the scuba gear was not up to standard, parts broken. The scuba was also more expensive then other places. The reef right by the resort was great though.

    We stayed in a mixed dorm, room doesn’t have ac or a fan so it was really warm. Food was just ok as a vegan. Snorkeling was beautiful off sunrise beach, we played volleyball every night. We got I’ll not sure from what so 24 hours we tried to sleep. Not our favorite resort/island of the Yasawa islands
