Hideaway Island is such a fantastic location where you can relax. The staff are so friendly and warm. The diving was spectacular, especially diving on Kathleen's Bommie. The coral structures and marine life are all intact and the visibility was a good 20 plus metres - nice warm water to get away from the Aussie colder climates!. Great value -... More

I recently went to Hideaway Island for a few days. The Diving operation was hassle free, the visibility was crystal clear and the ocean conditions were very calm. The accommodation was clean, tidy and in excellent condition. I'd Highly recommend this resort to everyone

I have stayed at Hideaway a few days ago and have to congratulate the resort and all the staff for doing such an amazing job after Cyclone Pam. Apart from a few trees down, the place is buzzing with life. The friendliness of the people there is beyond anyone's expectations. And the food... Oh, the food!!! Best steak I ever... More

Hi Thiago, Thank you for the review and yes the staff did take up where they left off - big smiles and happy faces. Thanks for the fundraising efforts from the dive community in Australia, it certainly did not go unnoticed from the village. See you later this year and keep up the good work. Warm regards, Mark and the... More

Hi Brent and Helen, Thank you for your review but a bigger thank you from the people of Vanuatu for your generous donations. The staff really "got stuck in" when we returned to the Island and thus we were able to open with in 2 weeks. They continue to do what they do best - smile - and it is... More

On hideaway island now, 4th night of 6. If you want some R&R this is the best place to be. Staff are so friendly and help you with everything. Boat runs constantly to the mainland. Snorkling is fantastic, as is swiming and just lying on the beach. The rooms have everything we need. Pool is great. Some evenings spent on... More

Met at the airport as arranged and transported to the island without a fuss. Accommodation perfect for the setting in a bungalow. Room serviced everyday. Reception staff, especially Stella, were most helpful in organising our trips to Mt Yassur and tours around Port Vila. Nothing was too much trouble. Cyclone has taken a toll on the trees and visitors, which... More
