To start with the lodge booked us in for three nights not four as we requested through their site. At first they wouldn't let us pay for the four nights at once in advance and then they decided they actually couldn't check us out without us paying the balance on the third night. Confusion all around. In addition they didn't... More

Beautiful waterfront unit with high ceilings and local art on the unit.Good number of kayaks with seats and SUP's. Kayaks were a bit bashed up and showing their age. Close walking distance to Port Villa.The grounds were nicely landscaped and well looked after. Staff were friendly and helpful - booking restaurants, tours and taxis for us.

We had a stay of five nights at other accommodation so unfortunately we only had 2 nights here. It was very enjoyable. The accommodation was quaint rather than luxurious but had everything one needed. It was well equipped to cook and eat on site. We were made to feel very welcome and the staff couldn't do enough for you. It... More

A short stay. Nice room and good location on lagoon while close to town. Pool ok but kayaks could do with a bit of work. Pleasant helpful staff. Nit a resort, but a clean and easy place to stay in port vila.

On my fourth visit to FL and I really look forward to coming back. Staff are very efficient and friendly. Rooms spacious, beds very comfortable and have some really good local artwork. Breakfast by the pool with passionfruit smoothies, fresh fruit, hot croissants and Tanna coffee takes some beating. Quiet but close to town. If I had to fibd something... More

We have just returned from 7 nights at Fatumaru Lodge and when in Vila would not hesitate to stay here again. As others have said it's about 15 minutes walk in to town but not a bad walk. The units are self catering if you're that way inclined which works out well as there's a BBQ by the pool which... More

Stayed for 1 night on a business trip, beautiful views of the water, quiet, safe and a few minutes drive from town. Excellent staff offered free upgrade on arrival and very good service. Will be back.

We had 10 days in beautiful Vanuatu staying at the Fatumaru Lodge. Comfortable, clean, A/C accommodation with lovely staff who could not do enough for us, accommodation is close to town and the airport. I would definitely recommend this Fatumaru Lodge, full European standards for good price.
