About Hideaway Island Resort and Marine Sanctuary

Home to the country’s only marine sanctuary, the beauty in and around the island are beyond description. Guests can get out of bed and be scuba-diving in 18 world-class dive-spots within 15 minutes. A proper 5-star diving resort, there are PADI-certified instructors/guides for beginners and experts, along with top-shelf scuba gear, nitrox tanks, boats and underwater scooters at the guests’ beck and call. How insanely fun can a holiday be? Some of the dive sites are the Hangover Reef, where delicate table coral, stag coral and sponges provide a happy feeding ground for thousands of multi-coloured fishes; Kathleen Reef, where huge ochre, yellow and candy-apple red Gorgonian sea fan corals greet you; The Wall, a steep dive down to 90 metres with stunning pelagic fish swimming around and the ravishingly beautiful East Side Story with clownfish and angelfish swimming around divers.

An ecologically-friendly resort, the accommodations are naturally ventilated, have high vaulted ceilings and are located either amongst the resort’s gardens or by the beach. The resort’s ‘On the Beach’ bar and restaurant serves up lip-smacking fresh seafood and local cuisine, along with cocktails, wines and liquors.

The Hideaway Island Resort is  home to one of the world’s few underwater post-offices, so travellers can drop off a few postcards to jealous friends! Besides the underwater fun, there is plenty to do on the island as well. A visit to the gorgeous Mele Cascade Falls is highly recommended, while exploring the island itself will while away many happy hours. A visit to the village of Mele will prove invaluable in understanding typical Melanesian customs and traditions, while a round of golf is a drive less than five minutes from the resort. Following those, a sunset cocktail from the bar and a hammock by the beach is something that needs to be experienced by everyone.
