The welcoming staff were very helpful especially as we arrived early. Our bedroom deck was 5 metres from the lapping waves when the tide was in. It was a pity we had to leave at 4.45am the next day. The room was well appointed. I smiled at the folded bow on the end of the loo paper. When I asked... More

Large and well appointed studio room. Air con, sattelite TV, microwave and hotplates. Comfortable Queen bed. Bifold doors open up onto a large waterfront deck. Fantastic view from Fatamaru Bay across to the main harbor. A big walk into town or as we did, hire a car.

This accommodation would serves it's best for families with kids or for older couples. It's a resort that keeps things simple: the rooms are plainly decorated but they have everything necessary to make it a pleasant stay -fridge, hairdryer, tv...-. We stayed on a beachfront room and the view was really nice. The best things about Fatumaru are how close... More

We stayed two times during a recent holiday. The staff were marvellous without exception. The room was most comfortable and provided good facilities for making breakfast although the Lodge also provides a healthy breakfast (at a cost). The short walk to town was good exercise but the hurricane has damaged the footpath somewhat. No doubt this will be fixed in... More

We booked a beach front studio, the room was very spacious and tastefully decorated. It's lovely and quiet and the view from the room is beautiful. There are double doors that open onto the balcony which is metres away from the water, I loved being able to sit in bed and see/hear the sea. We used the kayaks which were... More

Fatumaru is a really nice resort close to town with pretty good facilities. The two separate bedrooms are nice with very comfortable beds and a large rear bedroom with the two singles. No real sitting area but the outside bar/kitchen area is very cool. It was a good base to explore Port Vila and with the local buses constantly going... More

Dear Guest, Thank you for your comments and inputs. It is true that we have been badly impacted by Cyclone PAM and that we were expected that by the time you arrived everything will be fully finished. Unfortunately it was not the case and the builders were still very active. We tried our best to accommodate you and compensate for... More

A wonderful quiet retreat with good sized rooms and a jetty to sit out over the water on. A pool with lounges to relax on and friendly staff. Within easy walking distance of some great eating places and of town. Would highly recommend Fatumaru for a relaxing stay.

We spent 10 days in Port Vila at Fatumaru Lodge, which is a small lodge right on the bay with views over the water. The accommodation is roomy, great comfy bed with mosquito nets, mini kitchen well set up with a BBQ by the pool available to cook meat, great shower and excellent room service.
