“Fantastic getaway”
Reviewed 23 July 2007

We wanted a family holiday away from the cold of New Zealand winter. We booked through a travel agent who advised Hideaway resort. this is a real getaway as there are no TV, Telephone's, Radios. in the rooms. communication is done at reception and there is a games room if the weather turns(we never spent a minute there). The staff were fantastic and couldn't do enough to help and always had a smile. We relaxed and enjoyed the peace and quiet. the dive centre is well equipped and the DM's are great and know the dive sites.

I would like to say i am happy to recommend this holiday to anyone who wants to get away and enjoy a no frills comfortable holiday

Stayed July 2007

If you don't mind just a little bit of "rustic" then this is one fantastic place to spend a holiday. My wife, 12 yo boy, and I had one of our very best holidays ever at this destination. We went to have a simple dive vacation but left feeling that we had one of the best experiences imaginable. The diving was fantastic (and it was almost at your front doorstep). The dive staff made you feel "one of them". The hotel staff were always pleasant and eager to serve. The costs were not over the top. We loved it so much that we intend on going back later this year.

It's only a few hours door to door from Brisbane - who could ask for more.

Cheers guys for a job GREATLY done!

  • Liked — It was roomy with superb views and a great sink (a converted giant clam!!)
  • Disliked — Nothing at all - but remember it is rustic

We have just spent five days at Hideaway. Went there for the snorkelling and diving and were not disapointed in fact some of the best variety of fish and coral I have seen. The underwater post office was also a unique feature.
But there is more to Hideaway than just the water highlights. The staff are so friendly and helpful and the relaxed style of dinning creates a relaxed atmosphere where it is so easy to meet other guests and swop tales.
Nothing is a problem there and they are only to happy to help out in anyway.
Bruce is a great guy and his meals are wonderful.
Anyone wanting a relaxing holiday and experiencing real Vanuatu should consider Hideaway
