Authentic Local Character

Let's face it, many resorts look and feel like they could be on any beach in the world. But we feel that a far more memorable experience awaits where the lodge oozes local style and character!

So many tour operators offer the same old generic and charmless beach resorts which entirely lack any authentic local character – at Barefoot Breaks we're frankly allergic to these “rack ‘em, pack ‘em, stack ‘em” cookie cutter resorts, which could be located on just about any beach or island in the world.

we aim to only sell lodges and resorts that ooze local character and authenticity and where you get a real feel for the island destination you are visiting

Since launching Barefoot Breaks we’ve avoided these bigger, bland, less characterful resorts like the plague, as they simply don’t hit the same heights that smaller, more intimate and personal beach lodges do. Instead we aim to only sell lodges and resorts that ooze local character and authenticity and where you get a real feel for the island destination you are visiting.

It is this true local flavour together with the more intimate ambience that so many of our properties boast which adds hugely to the atmosphere that you enjoy as a guest and which ultimately makes for an unforgettable holiday experience!
