My husband and I stayed here for the first week of our honeymoon and we couldn't have hoped for anything better! Our room was beautiful. A large comfy bed and lots of 'local' touches and an open air en-suite bathroom. The bungalows are all set in beautiful tropical gardens and these lead through to the amazing little cocktail bar. The staff here made us feel so welcome from the minute we arrived. Delicious cocktails made with all sorts of fresh ingredients and a great deal of expertise. Happy hour runs from 5 - 6 and is buy one get one free. We found ourselves here making the most of it every night! Then there's the food. Sharon has so much experience and the kitchen has a new fresh menu every day. We tried other places to eat but nothing came close to the quality of the food here and we found ourselves eating back here even after we had checked out! I still dream of the raw tuna salad! We can't thank you all enough for making our stay with you so special. You have a fantastic place and it is such a pleasure to meet such genuine people. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts! Namaste!

Hideaway is primarily a family owned and run entity and has its own distinct personality and style of service and is not for everyone. The relaxed and homely atmosphere has a certain panache and all our guests receive sensitive and personalised attention.
