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

We are currently staying on Hideaway island, arrived yesterday and we are so glad we came. We were not sure what to expect after cyclone Pam, but apart from a few less trees not much has changed on this beautiful island. The Staff are as friendly as ever and the food is awesome. No structural damage to be seen and... More

Hi Fiona O, A big thank you for your review and I am pleased to say all the staff are OK. Sadly some lost homes or parts of homes during the cyclone but in true "Melanesian Way" they put their problems behind themselves and got on with the job of getting Hideaway up and running. They have amazed me at... More

We stayed here with our 2 children (7,6) ifor 4 nights in Jan 2015. It's a short 15 minute ride form the airport and then a 5 minute boat ride form the mainland. I had read a lot of mixed reviews, so my expectations were low. We arrived in the dark due to flight delay and my first impressions were... More

Spent a week here as a couple (got a good deal on booking.com) diving and snorkelling every day. Hideaway became a great family away from home, with Jeff, Nicky, Robbie and the dive team looking after us and taking us to some amazing sites (do the night dive!!!), and Louisa and the team greeting us with smiles every morning at...

Hi Joanne, Thank you for the review but also thank you for coming to visit the Island.

I stayed at Hideaway for a week from 28th January to 4th February. Travelled solo as hubby does not enjoy snorkelling. The lovely Helena had selected Bungalow 12 for me which was great. Serene outlook - view of Mele Bay. Quite private and away from main dining area which made it extra peaceful. Staff were simply wonderful. Pleasant, always had... More

The location is stunning and very easy to get to. By bus from town/airport is approx 600 vt each (£2) The food is very good but very limited for vegetarians staying on the island, but to broaden the choice there is Sunset bar at the other end of the free ferry which runs whenever you need it.
