Having never stayed in Vanuatu we went on the advice of friends who had stayed at the Hideaway. We were pleasantly surprised and thought the interior of the bundalows looked better that the website pictures, complete with giant clam shell in the bathroom. We picked Hideaway because of the diving/snorkeling and location, close to Port Vila. It was great that we could arrive at the island at 1am after our delayed flight, they have 24 hour boat access to the resort. The 5 acre island included a rain-forest walk to your bundalow that over-looked the ocean with very private backyard with hammock (we never saw anyone else from our back yard). Max. approx. 40 guests on the island per day. Made new friendships. We didn't even mind that it was mostly overcast (July) it didn't spoil the underwater views, which were better than Hawaii and Fiji diving/snorkeling. Coral mostly covered the island (no beautiful white sand beach) but only added to its uniqueness. Diving crew are phenomenal. Tropical fish up to 1 1/2 foot right off the beach. Even found Nemo. We will be taking the kids back one day. Food was great, the Thursday night feast was fabulous and a real highlight to our stay, got to meet lots of people from all over the world It was nice that it was located walking distance to waterfalls, short bus to golf course and shopping in Port Vila. The island definately has a laid-back feel, so don't go if you want the convenience of 5 star hotels. LOVED IT!
