As cabanas são bem legais, o mar nesse resort é bem calma pelo menos era assim que estava quando fui, pude fazer flutuação que foi bem legal consegui ver diversos tipos de peixes, recifes etc. Na opção que escolhi achei o quarto um pouco quente mesmo tendo vetilador.
A hidden gem - Best place to snorkel!

We had an amazing time at Barefoot Manta. It was our first time in Fiji and the resort definitely lived up to the reviews we had read about the place. *Rooms* We stayed in the Beachfront Adi (Queen) Bure. It's similar to a glamping tent, but also has it's own attached outdoor bathroom and front porch. There's no A/C, but we did have a ceiling fan which was much needed during the humid nights. We stayed during the wet season and it rained 3 of the 4 nights. The room can get pretty loud when it rains, along with the sound of the waves. It can also feel a bit damp and muggy. *Activities* Snorkelling was easily the highlight of the trip. With 3 beaches, calm waters and a huge expanse of coral reefs to explore, you could spend hours being mesmerised by the biodiversity of marine life out there. There are no mantas in December, but we did see stingrays and a reef shark. The resort also has a 'Bulatin' board that is updated daily with group activities. There was a good mix of physical (e.g. hikes, volleyball etc.) and cultural/educational (e.g Fijian cooking, basket weaving) activities to partake in. *Food* We were extremely well fed during our stay. Each day was different. On some days you could choose what dish you wanted from a set menu, and on others, they'd do a buffet. We loved getting to try Fijian food. *Staff* The staff were super friendly and made an effort to interact and get to know every guest. They always shout out a friendly "Bula!" to you as you walked around the resort. *Fees* The overall cost was definitely worth it. But as others have mentioned, you should bear in mind the resort package fee, which you pay in addition to your room booking. The resort fee covers main meals (breakfast, lunch and dinner) and most activities they have on offer. It is calculated based on the number of days you stay (Resort package fee x number of days x number of people). *Summary* If you're not afraid to leave the luxury and creature comforts of the big resorts, you'll definitely love it here. This place is a hidden gem. We'll definitely be back here during manta ray season!
Three beaches to snorkel from. All exceptional.

Ever since a day trip to Barefoot Kuata years ago I’ve dreamed of going to Barefoot Manta. And I was next level delighted. The snorkelling was exceptional which was what we were there for. Next time we will dive as well. As a bonus there was really interesting bird life. Like living in a documentary. A documentary with delicious food and scrumptious cocktails. I’m still dreaming of the fish curry.

Barefoot Manta was our first stop in Fiji. We took the ferry (shuttle from airport to port), were met by a smaller boat and taken to shore. Be advised, there’s no dock, so take off your shoes and prepare for wet feet. A fresh coconut was offered with your introduction to the resort. Our accommodation was an oceanfront bure (cabin/tent). We were second last on our pathway. Each bure is separated from the others by vegetation, so quite private, but can still see the neighbours. We looked straight to the ocean…the beach about 50 feet away. The accommodation was a tent with solid roof and floor. We expected an overhang on the lanai, but they may be for the family cabins. So the lanai was open, not protected from rain. The bure has an outdoor bathroom…toilet and sink areas covered, but the shower is open to the elements. Room was comfy, maybe not enough spots to hang things up. Shampoo and soap are provided. Only one plug for plugging in your stuff though. No A/C, but a ceiling fan. Also had a hammock outside. There are 2 dining areas. The main one, which also houses the front desk, and one near the beach which is all open. Special meals are held here. Food is pretty good. A different menu each day we were there. Breakfast is self serve, plus an egg station. At breakfast you select your choices for lunch and dinner. There are generally at least 2 mains with meat and 2 vegetarian options at dinner. One day we had a BBQ buffet lunch. One night was Dwali, so it was more curry. Another was Fiji night, which also involved the Kava ceremony. Drinks are decently priced. If you are there at the right time…summer months are peak…you can snorkel with Mantas. We missed that. There is good snorkelling on two sides of the resort. The sunset side has a tame reef, easy snorkelling. The sunrise side can be more wavy, but there is an excellent coral reef there, with a decent drop for shore diving. The resort has diving excursions, and a place where you can get snorkelling and diving equipment so you don’t need to bring any. Staff are warm and friendly. There are various activities you can partake in each day. They sing to you on arrival and departure. We very much enjoyed our stay here. Best was having the front flap open on the tent (screen closed) and having the ocean breeze at night and waking to the view of the water through the trees. Also, there is a rescued parrot on the premises (native to Fiji, not this island), Cookie. Loves to sit on your shoulder.

This is the real Fiji, far away from the everyday. Our family of 5 enjoyed 7 nights at the resort in a safari tent right on the water’s edge with our own private outdoor bathroom. This is the dream location for an island paradise. The team here are all wonderful and you become part of the extended family. Located in a marine conservation park, the snorkelling is next level amazing. It’s like being in a fish tank with a variety of species in exotic colours and of all sizes. We enjoyed many activities including expert talks with the marine biologists, a lesson in coral planting and reef restoration, night snorkelling, a village visit, a fire side safari talk, kayaking, volleyball, cultural dancing, learn to scuba, coconut bowling, two hikes, and a beach bonfire. The food was reasonable and on some days it was great. The new coffee machine will be much appreciated. There is plenty to do. Or do nothing! It is a pristine paradise. Reading a book on the deck, watching the ocean and the sunset is sublime. This was an amazing holiday. We missed the Mantaray season but we will be back. If you want to experience the real Fiji with genuine hospitality, warmth and kindness away from the fake facade of the big resorts, this is it. Fantastic.
