Jess who has recently left a review was one of our table buddies at night along with her dad and some other very keen divers. We...

My Dad and I have just returned from a week long holiday on Hideaway Island. We had a fantastic time. The island has a superb location being a short drive (15mins) and then very short ferry ride from the airport. The island itself was absolutely beautiful. Dad and I shared one of the twin share rooms which are small, but...

Hideaway Island was wonderful. Everyone was very friendly and the food was great. The best thing was the diving and snorkelling! The water was 28 degrees right down to 40m and it was like diving in the big Aquarium in Sydney, every dive had different fish and coral and lots of things to see. It was fun having a drink...

Hideaway is a great place to start or continue a diving adventure. Nothing was a hassle, from the time we landed in Vila to the time we boarded the plane. That hassle free feel continued all the way through the trip. All I had to think about was enjoying the diving... and that was a no brainer. Phill and the...

If you are fussy, do not handle little issues well, and like to pull apart hotels then do not come here. However if you like a relaxing environment, friendly, happy and helpful staff, some beautiful snorkelling and views then I recommend bringing your \self, partner and/or family here. We did have some issues such as no water or hot water...

I'm not joking when I say you can see the tropical fish swimming around from your beach lounger. The service was amazing all the staff made u feel at home. If was far enough out of town, only been 10 min. But many of the attractions are centered around mele bay. The free village tour was a highlight, beware if...

If you are looking for a unique culinary experience while in Vanuatu, Hideaway Island Food Evenings are a definite must do. Every couple of weeks, Gideon (F&B Manager & International Chef), hosts a fabulous night where you can enjoy a particular dinning theme – last Saturday (Feb 17), I and some friends attended the Indian Cuisine Night and the food...
