We have never used the accomodation at the Hideaway, but over now four holidays in the Port Vila area, we have visited the Hideaway as a day trip many times. It is without doubt, the best day trip destination if staying in the Port Vila area. It is very easy and cheap to get to, great food and drink service,...

For a keen swimmer and snorkellor like me, this is the ideal spot. To wake up in the morning and just a few paces to the beach and then off to marvel at fish and coral just metres from the beach. And good undamaged coral and protected fish in a marine reserve at that. Perfect! Our garden bungalow was nice,...

We spent a long weekend snorkelling and diving and had a fantastic time. Our villa was large and had great views. The place does need a bit of maintenance these days but nothing that put us off from coming back. We are looking forward to our return later this year. The staff were great. I agree with the comments though...

Just back from a week at Hideaway and I'm trying hard to find the next time I can go there! The sea is incredibly clear and the abundance of fishes hard to compete with. Snorkeling is enough to see clown fish colonies a few meters from the shore, and I can hardly recollect how many different species of fish and...

My partner and I stayed at Hideaway Island Resort in June of 2013 for 5 nights. We had an amazing time there and really loved the snorkeling, which is the best I've experienced to date. However if you are looking for a 5 star, secluded experience with perfect sandy beaches, this is not the place for you. For starters the...

The service is great, swimming over the reef, so many fish, moray eels, stonefish, and other treasures. Then there was last night's dinner! Reef and beef from the blackboard menu, it was to die for, the chef, Joe Morris excelled!
