The resort is situated on an island point with 3 beaches to choose from, surrounded by inviting clear warm waters. On one beach you can watch the sunrise whereas on another you can watch the sunset, it's a couple of minutes to walk from one beach to the other. Lush coral gardens teaming with marine life are accessible from the beach and are diligently nurtured by the resort's in-house Marine Biologist. Barefoot Manta Island Resort is the only resort in Fiji with a dedicated Marine Conservation Centre with houseguests welcome to join daily conservation presentations. Yes, Manta Rays!

Such a fantastic place. I’d stay here over several “fancier resorts” on nearby islands. The staff is so great, and all the amenities and facilities are fantastic!

Wow wow wow! My biggest takeaway from this resort is the staff. They’re some of the most beautiful people I’ve ever met inside and out. There’s nothing to do on the resort except dive (for around FJD200) or snorkel (which is free). The snorkelling around barefoot is some of the best I’ve ever seen. There are very few amenities, but that’s okay as you’re there to relax. Just a heads up on the air conditioning, there is none and it was extremely hot and humid during my stay there.
