The Hideout is a made-to-measure vacation destination; however, we do not offer an ‘all-inclusive’ dining package. We offer à la carte dining and beverage options as well as bespoke dining experiences that are all available for a nominal fee. In addition to your accommodations, we offer a number of complimentary activities and use of watersports equipment including snorkel gear, paddle-boards, and kayaks. Additional charges will apply for day excursions such as scuba diving, deep-sea fishing, and yacht rentals.

Transportation to and on the island may be challenging because there are stairs to board the plane and aircrafts do not have lifts. Upon arrival to the island, transportation and taxi service are not presently wheelchair accessible. We strive to eventually offer full accessibility to this remote island location, however there are several limitations presented by external factors of the location including airlift, ground transportation, lift availability and limited medical services. We will continue to work with our contacts here to make improvements in the future.

We have a two night minimum. A longer stay may be required over the Christmas and New Year timeframe.
