    Absolutely a must visit! Room charges include breakfast, snorkel equipment hire, kayak use, glass bottom boat trip, snorkel safari and return boat transfers. Pristine snorkeling on a reef in the process of being regenerated by Newcastle Uni. This place is HEAVEN!

    Unique experience in Paradise

    Pros Lovely staff. Amazing location. Free water gear "Feel-good" vibe Cons "island time" - thing takes time (food, service etc). Expensive food and beverage and you're not allowed to bring your own to the island.

    Hideaway is like a home away from home to me. I have now stayed there ten times over the past thirteen years. It is one of the few holiday destinations that I find totally relaxing. Hideaway Time is my time!

  • 10.0.Exceptional

    It was amazing to be able to snorkel straight off the beach, perfectly clear water and loads of fish. The snorkel safari on a daily basis was fantastic. The meals at the restaurant were delicious. This is a perfect location to get away from everything, nice and relaxed. Not a 5 star resort, a bit worn and a rustic feel, but views from bungalows are definitely 5 star.

    This is a beautiful location, however the bungalows and restaurant facilities are a bit tired and need renovation. There were broken mirrors, stained tiles, cheap shower caddies. For the price, one would expect more upscale accommodations.

    Superb location, friendly staff, excellent for snorkelling and diving. The free boat ferry service works very well. The restaurant has a great menu and the food is very well prepared and presented.

    Swimming, snorkeling, kayaking great and free. Appreciated free ferry service. Bungalows huge and comfortable. Distance between bungalows made a very quiet and peaceful sleep. Restaurant food very good. Restaurant, bar a bit dated and could do with a ‘freshen up’. Most people go to beach bar on mainland as there is more atmosphere at night

    Laid back beach break

    Laid back location with great accommodation, good bar style food and excellent scuba diving just off shore.
