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.
Hideaway Island Resort and Marine Sanctuary is a small coral atoll that's about as close as you'll get to an unspoiled island paradise.Located just 10 minutes from the airport and 3 or 4 minutes by ferry from the mainland beach. Surrounded by clear turquoise water, coral reefs and thousands of fish, this Melanesian style resort is the custodian of one of Vanuatu’s only marine sanctuaries. Coral reefs ideal for snorkeling or scuba diving right from the shore are home to thousands of ‘tame’ fish. Our experienced PADI Instructors and Divemasters will ensure you see the best of every site.
Hideaway Island Resort welcomes all guests including visitors from the various cruise ships that frequent Port Vila.
There is also plenty for the non-diver to do. A day on the island can be as busy or as quiet as you want to make it. In addition to snorkeling and scuba diving, you can try the kayaks and Stand-Up-Paddleboards, play beach volleyball, or use Hideaway as a base for a myriad of other tours and activities such as game fishing, visiting the Cascade Waterfalls or playing a round of golf just across the bay. If you prefer a more relaxing holiday, you can always just sit back, relax and enjoy a beverage or meal from our beachfront restaurant as you enjoy the view of beautiful Mele Bay.
