My boyfriend and I just returned from this beautiful and captivating island. The staff was absolutely fabulous and made us feel at home from the moment we got off the boat. They went above and beyond to meet our needs and satisfied every desire we expressed. The water was clear and the reef was incredible. We went snorkeling everyday! We also did the snorkeling with the sharks. It was amazing!! Thank you Samy, Frank, Allie, Butani, Lipue, Seta, Tim, Nathan, Nancy, Johnny, Jimmy, Ben, Solomon and Sir Paul! Miss each and everyone of you! We will be back!!

Staying in a huge tent on the beach, waking up to beautiful views everyday, and really being able to relax and enjoy yourself is inevitable! The staff went out of their way to make our time enjoyable, and I will 100% be back!

Barefoot Kuata Island Resort A+++++
I can not say enough great things about Barefoot Kuata. Anyone leaving negative feedback about this island clearly doesn't know how to appreciate Fiji. The staff was so friendly and really tried to make you feel part of their family. I stayed here for 4 days and everyone knew me on a first name basis and that made me feel so welcomed. I stayed in a beach front bure and it was absolutely amazing!!! I spent most of my time scuba diving here and the dive staff was exceptional! The shark dive was a blast and all of my fun dives were spectacular as well. It wasn't manta season yet but the underwater diversity was great. Snorkling right from the beach was great as well and usage of the kayaks, paddle boards and snorkel gear was included. There are a few different hikes you can do to explore the island as well which was nice. The food was great too. Buffet style and all you can eat for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Very relaxed atmosphere and the photos online do not do this place justice. Definetly make this island a stop along your journey, you won't regret it. Big thanks to all the management and staff for making my stay here one I will never forget:) Vinaka xoxo
