Spent 1 week in twin share dorm, fortunately I was by myself and not sharing, which was a bonus as I found the size and amenities of the room to be inadequate for 2 adults, also the shower and toilet is in a separate block, although close, was inconvenient. The continental breakfast was good and met the basic requirements, and... More

We recently stayed on Hideaway Island for a diving holiday. We stayed in a semi attached bungalow room which was roomy and probably more than we needed. The rooms overall were nice but there were little things that i believe let the rooms down considering they're not exactly a cheap accommodation option. The bathroom doors were off their runners when... More

My friend and I stayed 4 nights at Hideaway and could have stayed another 40! The island is beautiful, the staff are amazing (especially Brian and Louisa), it's a super relaxed and fun atmosphere. We had a twin room with shared bathroom, the room has a fridge, kettle and sink and was perfect and worth every penny. Waking up on... More

The hideaway is just that a place to get away from it all. The accommodation was pleasant, the food was great, the people the best. The coral is sad and needs protecting so tread gently. I recommend this place to stay anytime.

My girlfriend and I spend 3 nights at Hideaway at the end of a month-long holiday in Fiji and Vanuatu, staying in one of the villas. It was a very good and relaxing end to our journey. The 2-floor villa was very spacious and included both a private pool (which we didn't use), jacuzzi and a small kitchen. Upstairs was... More

My experience at the Hideaway Island resort has been a mixed bag of positive and negatives. The most salient point would be that although I was in paradise, I never truly relaxed. I'll start with the positive aspects... Firstly, the snorkelling is just brilliant! There is a plethora of beautiful marine life and coral to see, literally meters away from... More
