The team is made up of Resort Staff and have been playing together since September 2011. IN a short period of time they have notched up an impressive record having won the Davui Bowl at the Fiji Coral Coast 7's in November 2011 by defeating Saunaka 26 to 12.

The players are

The Hideaway Resort has also been well represented in the national 15’s side with two staff members chosen to represent Fiji in the 15's in the Pacific Rugby Cup, they are
