Absolute waterfront, unbeatable views, quiet and peaceful grounds, easy walk into town (10 min downhill), kayaks and paddle boards always available, balcony and hammocks were the perfect way to unwind with a tusker in hand! Few downsides... The rooms are quite dark and have poor lighting- The studios have massive wooden bifold doors that open out to the water which... More

Fatumaru Lodge with its amazing location and helpful smiling staff is a place to visit again and again. The view as you woke in the morning of bay with the fishermen catching bait and the children playing in the water was unique and one that will always stay with me. The staff could not have been more helpful, all very... More

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

I was so excited driving down to Fatumaru, gazing at the beautiful view of the lagoon, & anticipating the view from our room. I was not disappointed. Very difficult to work out my fave thing...

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
