The Barefoot at Havelock resort consists of 19 elegantly designed wood and thatch cottages and villas complete with spacious interiors, modern amenities and ensuite bathrooms. Constructed using environmentally sensitive indigenous materials, this is the first and only ecologically friendly resort in the Andaman Islands.
- Fan-cooled Nicobari Cottages
Number of Rooms: 9
Measures 350 sq feet are constructed mainly out of fast regenerable materials like bamboo, wood and palm leaves. Bamboo matting shapes the walls, the roofs are created from thatch and local hardwood fashions the floors of this chic cottage. The bathrooms offer 24 hrs hot & cold water. The interiors of the cottage are elegant and in keeping with the theme.
The entire cottage constructed by local craftsmen, is set on stilts above the ground with a foldable step-ladder that prevents some of the wilder inhabitants (read reptiles and small mammals) from accessing the cottage.
- Air-conditioned Andaman Villas
Number of Rooms: 8
The air-conditioned Andaman Villas have been constructed in keeping with our philosophy of ecologically-friendly construction. The timber that creates the fabulous hardwood floors was carefully chosen from plantation forests in Indonesia, to ensure that they closely matched endemic species of the Andaman Islands.
The large, inviting beds with their oversized pillows are fronted by a floor-to-ceiling picture window that gives you a panoramic view of the tropical foliage and fruit trees alfresco. The bathrooms have a separate walk-in jungle shower with a clear glass view of the forest canopy. The bathroom skylight can be raised to allow fresh air into the villa.
