Thank you for your excellent care and facilities for the few days we were there. Also the upgrade was really appreciated. We loved using the kayaks and paddle boards and especially the pool. Wish we could have stayed longer.

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

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. Staff are friendly and accommodating.... More

Everything about the place is great, service from the most obliging staff, location, sparkling clean pool, small private beach. Disliked the mattress which needs changing, a bit old; also balconies should have wall-to-wall partitions between them for more privacy as you can hear next-door conversations if you speak normally. More light in the bathroom, especially for women trying to put... More

The resort was a wonderful and peaceful location. The accommodation and self contained features were fantastic it was also in a quiet location which was great for relaxation and close to town. We would highly recommend this resort to anyone looking to stay in Port Villa.

This accommodation is a lot more homely than other resorts, The rooms are very spacious and well decorated. We had friends visit that were staying in more expensive digs and commented on how much nicer our lodge was. There is a shop across the road, you are far enough out of town to miss the noise yet close enough to... More
