We stayed in one of the island bungalows. First impressions were not good as it didn't look as good as in the pictures. However after 5 nights we had got to take it for what it is, a bit like an old beach house, nothing flash but comfortable with masses of space. The reef is wonderful for snorkelling but getting...

we spent 2 days on hideaway island (taking a ferry from mainland). While it wasn't cheap (1250 vatu for adult and 700 for child) the snorkeling was wonderful. Take some bread and feed fish right on the waters edge. Low tide definitely had better viewing - lots of varieties of tropical fish. My kids loved it and hubby who went... More

We decided that for a week of relaxation we would try Hideaway Island in Vanuatu and we are so glad we did. We stayed in one of the beach front bungalows which was so spacious and light. It had lovely views with a hammock and chairs on the decking. The food was great - try the curry! And the staff... More

The people make the place, and the staff at Hideaway Island Resort and friendly and welcoming. From the moment we arrived, our family group of 20 were settled into our bungalows and shown the islands activities. The snorkeling is amazing! Step off the beach, into the water, and the tropical fish and coral are right there! Perfect for adults &... More

We spent a week on Hideaway Island on a dive trip last week. The weather was superb at a steady 26/27 degrees during the day and a pleasant 25 degrees in the water. There was quite some reef damage from Cyclone Pam, but there was still plenty of good reef with lots of animals to be seen. Another great thing... More

Had a great time - snorkelling, paddle boards and canoes were excellent. The glass bottom boat and snorkel safari was great. Try and get a bungalow on the sea seaside - not facing the harbour as the trade wind is constant and can be noisy depending on how hard it blows... otherwise earplugs are a good option. The staff are... More

My fourth return to Vanuatu made special as always by the incredibly generous and kind staff of Hideaway. Each person makes that place so special and I love returning to their smiling faces. Hideaway has everything a holiday maker could need- relaxing beach, outdoor and in-water activities, restaurant and bar, clean and comfortable rooms and most importantly fun and friendly... More

We are certain that people must have wondered about the screams coming from Bauerfield Airport yesterday. Just to put your minds at east it was simply Sarah and my objection to being dragged onto a plane to head home to Sydney. This was my 5th visit to Vanuatu and we simply love returning to Hideaway to spend time with the... More

I stay on Hideaway Island in September 2014 with my partner and we both thoroughly enjoyed our stay. On arrival we were shown to our room on the far side of the island from the beach which meant we had peace and quiet at all times. We were able to walk around the island and enjoy some relaxing time on... More

We are a little disappointed that we didn't stay on the island during our trip to Vanuatu, as the activities, food and scenery are lovely, and the resort is great value for money. Our day trip involved snorkelling, scuba diving, relaxing in the chairs on the beachfront, and eating. The bar menu is extensive, with hot and cold foods, and... More
