The island is located in Mele Bay, a pristine open ocean setting with world class diving & snorkeling just off the island. The moment you arrive, you will realize how special Hideaway Island is. No other resort in Vanuatu offers oceanfront one bedroom bungalows set in a lush tropical setting surrounded by an extensive reef teeming with colorful fish and coral.
We offer guests many activities such as kayaking, paddle-boarding, snorkeling, glass bottom boat rides and diving. Courses are available if you want to learn how to dive. Hideaway is close to many of the most popular activities in the country such as the 18 hole Mele Golf Course, the Cascade Waterfalls and the Botanical Gardens.
As beautiful as the island setting is…it is our staff that guests rave about. Our return guests consider Hideaway a second home with a large Mele community extended family. Employment at Hideaway is the main source of income for approximately 50 local families and a percentage of our turnover is paid to a village trust for the benefit of the community.
We invite you to escape to paradise, enjoy the natural beauty of the island, come face to face with hundreds of fish and discover what makes Hideaway Island and Marine Sanctuary so special.
