Hideaway is founded on a social and environmental eco agreement with the local Mele people. It is situated within a marine reserve with people generally directed to a small area at the beachfront where the one can snorkel, dive or just paddle around without effecting the greater reef area, which is preserved in beautiful condition for divers/snorkelers who understand the need to protect the reef. This way they manage the resort nature which attracts great crowds on Cruise ship days providing good access to children and casual snorkelers to view many fish without harming the greater reef.
The resort is staffed by local people who go to amazing efforts to provide for comfort and add the wow factor to coming back to your bungalow (see photo).
The bungalows are large and as near to the water as could be. We were so comfortable (with no mozzies) and although the resort is aging, we felt as if in luxury. the beds are comfortable and the sheets clean and fresh.
Nearby is the astonishing Mele Cascades waterfall and Secret Gardens Cultural Centre.
There are a few issues, such as the ferry, which can be improved but overall it is a great resort style holiday.
