My partner and I got back from our stay in Vanuatu yesterday and we wish we were still there! Every staff member was helpful and friendly and never too busy! Our room was clean and spacious and the beach access and view of the bay is perfect. We watched the most beautiful sunset we've ever seen from the dock and... More

Large comfortable room, with all you need to self cater or just rest. Great service, very nice pool. Excellent breakfast prepared for you by the very friendly staff. It's very east to get a bus ( really a locals taxi without the taxi sign) just by standing next to road. These vehicles, usually kombi van type, sometimes multi coloured, with... More

We stayed in Fatumara Lodge for 7 nights and it was simply fantastic. The accommodation was very clean, modern and comfortable. Imagine a five star self catering apartment and you can't go wrong. The pool is nice and great for a cool dip on those balmy days and the bay water out the front is so warm it's like a... More

Fatumaru Lodge is a perfect place to stay in Vanuatu. It is situated close to the main part of Port Vila, yet you feel miles away as it is so quiet and peaceful. Staff were amazingly helpful and willing to go the extra mile to ensure our stay was pleasant. I stayed with my best friend in one of the... More

We loved our 5 days at Fatumaru lodge, the staff were so friendly and helpful.The room was lovely, large and with a fab view. I choose Fatumaru because I wanted to be on the waters edge and we surely were that with high tide lapping our balcony. It was great for swimming, kayaking, stand-up paddle boarding but not for snorkelling.... More
