Here's a peek at adults-only Hideaway Beach on Perfect Day at CocoCay

VIP escape The Hideout in Hideaway Beach
The new Hideaway Beach on Perfect Day at CocoCay will introduce the first adults-only escape on Royal Caribbean International's private island in January with Icon of the Seas' debut.

It will be complete with private beaches and pools, dedicated bars and dining options, cabanas and live music.

'Everything from its hidden-like location to the exclusive beach and pools to the private cabanas is designed for adults who want a day just for them,' said Michael Bayley, president and CEO, Royal Caribbean International. 'There are experiences for everyone on a Royal Caribbean vacation, and that's at the heart of our private island and its popularity.'

Tucked away on the northwest beach of Perfect Day at CocoCay, Hideaway Beach offers vacationers 18 and older their own spot to celebrate, cool off and kick back across a private beach, two pools, 20 cabanas, seven open-air bars and spots to grab a bite.

The cost

Hideaway Beach pricing starts between $39 and $89, depending on the time of year.Hideaway Beach pricing starts between $39 and $89, depending on the time of year.

From end to end Hideaway Beach offers more than an acre of white sand beaches and turquoise waters that can be experienced at resort-style loungers and umbrellas along the shore or on in-water hammocks and swings while playing beach games and listening to a DJ by the pool.

Hideaway Pool will blast all-day tunes with a lively swim-up bar at the center of the action. It will have in-water seating and loungers, and poolside loungers throughout the infinity-edge pool.

Just steps away from the party, vacationers can level up their day at 10 chic poolside cabanas with a range of amenities like attendant service at the push of a button, a mini-fridge, floating beach mats and charging outlets.

VIP cabanas

The Hideout is a nook at one end of Hideaway Beach, just close enough to the buzz but with an exclusive, elevated experience. With 10 Hideout Cabanas, those looking for a more VIP, chill vibe can kick back at an infinity-edge plunge pool with perks like cabana attendant service, in-water loungers, an outdoor shower and resort-style seating.

Bites and drinks

On the Rocks, an alfresco bar along the rocky shore, serves a vibrant scene of musicians, TVs airing live sports, games like pool and shuffleboard, and ocean views along with drinks like frozen margaritas and mai tais.

The swim-up bar at Hideaway Pool is the place to be and be seen. And with two levels, vacationers can take their drinks poolside or without leaving the water.

Slice of Paradise is a new rustic pizza haven with a bar. Complimentary food includes fresh-from-the-oven favorites, island twists like a Bahamian guava barbecue chicken option and more.

A staple on Perfect Day at CocoCay, Snack Shack's new location provides complimentary chicken sandwiches, burgers, fried mozzarella sticks, fresh salads and more, as well as shaded seating, plus Adirondack chairs and tables on the sand.

Rounding out the experience are two full-service beach bars located on both sides of this new beachfront paradise.
