Fatumaru Lodge was fantastic. The rooms are well appointed and each is decorated with elements that reflect the uniqueness of the outer islands. Fantastic views over the lagoon. The Lodge is located on the main road so accessing local transport is very easy. Despite its location, there was very little transmitted noise from the highway. The pool was fabulous in... More

Very nice rooms, (we stayed in Erromango and Epi) especially those on the beach front, and a convenient location to walk into town (15mins) although mini buses can be flagged down for just 150 vatu for the ride . Helpful and pleasant staff and, at least while we were there, very quiet and peaceful. Overall, very good value for money.

This is the nicest place! The accommodation is excellent and feels very safe and secure. The staff are the friendliest people on earth and go above and beyond to help you out! Would definitely recommend to anyone coming to Vanuatu! Also, the breakfast is to die for!

We stayed for 4 nights in the 'Wala' sea-facing room on the top level. The ocean views were spectacular and the room furnishings are tasteful and practical. We found the lodge conveniently located to either take a 10 min walk or get a lift by one of the many passing taxis to Port Vila. The airconditioned room suited us perfectly... More

Had one last night in Vila before the early flight home the next morning. The location of Fatumaru was perfect - not right in the middle of town, lovely view, and very close to the airport. The room was absolutely beautiful, spacious, and had everything we could need - wish we were staying longer!
