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

My family and I stayed a week here for a special birthday and loved our time. We had a range of accomodation for all of us and it was excellent. Cleaning staff were lovely, doing a great job daily. The bar and restaurant provided great food - the Hideaway curry is to die for! My brother and I did some... More

Just spent a week on Hideaway with a large group of diving friends from SEAL and thoroughly enjoyed my stay on the island. The staff were very friendly and were quick to rectify any issues which were minor. The dive team were a pleasure to dive with and were always on the alert to point out small sea creatures. Great...

Took myself and two teens to the island for a days snorkelling. Great place for good easy snorkelling off the beach. Good for little kids to adults. Food and bar are good. Its a great experience, kids and I enjoyed it.

I am very glad that we decided to stay at Hideaway island for our Vanuatu getaway. It's a 2 minute boat trip off the mainland, and has it's own bar and restaurant. You're only a 5 minute taxi ride away from Port Vila. The bungalows are awesome; rustic and simple, but just lovely to stay in. There's a resident dive... More

I visited with my husband in July 2014 and again in July 2015. This year we visited Beqa Lagoon Resort in Fiji. Although the dive sites were amazing in Fiji, the overall holiday could not come close to the wonderful time we had at Hideaway in Vanuatu. Momma Rosa certainly makes Hideaway very very special. In Fiji, there was no... More
