Great place, staff and location but too popular with families with small kids. So expect constant noise and kiddies commandeering the small pool. Want to enjoy the view on your balcony? Well you can't because the bogan parents nextdoor are incapable or controlling their screaming brat.

The perfect spot over looking the bay with private beach on your door step. Adequate facilities to do some self catering, friendly staff, great rooms and pool. 10 minute walk into town, we will stay here again

We stayed in an ocean-front studio and it was just literally step off our porch into the beautiful warm water. Everything was perfect - the staff, breakfast by the pool and the comfortable studio room. Thank you Fatumaru for a great stay.

We had the most amazing time staying at Fatumaru Lodge. The views were amazing. The studio overlooked Fatumaru Bay and you could fall asleep hearing water lap just outside your balcony screen. The room was spacious, comfortable and beautifully decorated and furnished. The staff without exception were friendly, efficient and nothing was ever to much to ask for. We value... More

Beautiful place, so enjoyed our stay. The staff are wonderful and were so helpful. The views, gorgeous and so enjoyed watching the cruise ships come into the bay. We went to Paama island for 6 nights and we were able to leave some of our gear behind which was a great help to us.

The rooms are clean, well appointed and have a fantastic view. Very close to town to enable you to walk there. The staff are friendly and helpful. Breakfast by the pool was spectacular - delicious fresh fruit and croissant - all with the amazing view of the bay. Loved our stay at the lodge and would recommend it.

Only 15 minute walk into town, located along the coast, the accommodation was great. Local eats and bars located just down the road and with the option for a bus or walk into town, everything is at your doorstep.
