Hidden cove Eco Retreat

Hidden Cove Eco Retreat, Vanuatu's only luxury tent resort, is a top of the range eco-accommodation. The retreat runs completely on solar/ wind power but still has all the facilities you would expect in a 5 star hotel.

The styles of accommodation - luxury tents - have been chosen for their eco credentials and romantic ambience. The retreat is powered and cooled completely by nature; naturally air conditioned by  the canopy of ancient coastal trees and the sea breezes together with ceiling fans. 

Being eco-friendly, does not compromise comfort or style and you will find all the facilities that one would expect in a "traditional" resort and for the most part you will not be aware that you are not connected to a main power grid. Each tented villa has separate and private facilities within walled gardens including spacious decks, plunge pool, private beaches, French tubs and marble appointed indoor/outdoor bathrooms and BBQ.  We cater to only  a maximum of six guests at a time  with the eco tents well spaced to provide ultimate privacy and personalized service.  Perfect for a honeymoon or couples needing time together to re-connect and unwind.

The onsite managers and staff, while on hand to provide round the clock personalized service and security,  are discreet and respectful of your privacy at all times.  We are committed to personalize your holiday experience to suit your needs.  Breakfast is served at a time to suit you in the privacy of your Villa and daily housekeeping is scheduled around your itinerary. Our room service extends to catering for specific dietary needs such Lactose and gluten free, Vegan or Vegetarian.

The personal service extends to providing a mobile telephone/ compendium listing restaurants, tours, taxis, activities and concierge/managers contacts for your convenience. Alternatively, the  front desk is always available to help with information and  planning of activities including booking car hire, tours, reservation for restaurants or planning special surprises.

We look forward to demonstrating that a luxury holiday experience can be compatible with environmental sustainability.
