We lived nearby Fatumaru Lodge 8 years ago so we loved staying here during an impromptu visit last week. Drinking coffee on the balcony watching the local children playing or taking one of the kayaks for a spin along the waterfront, its hard to fathom you are so central. What a haven - so thoughtfully done. Thanks Patricia and Pascal... More

Wow, this was our 2nd time staying at this fantastic venue, stayed in Tanna with the water lapping the beach apartments, it was well worth coming back after 8 years. We could see progress, the roads have improved and the people are becoming more adjusted to westerners and their ways. The pool is spectacular and we spent every day soaking... More

A great and perfect accommodation environment worth the money value, peaceful and noise free setup. Free surfing board which to surf in the quite bay at peace. Very friendly and helpful staff to make your stay a home away from your country or home.

Gorgeous hotel. Extremely friendly staff (nothing is any trouble) Staying in the two bedroom suite. The hotel is located right on the waters edge, where you can go for a wrefreshing swim or have some fun fishing. It is only a short 10min walking distance to town, with a local shop literally across the road. Vanuatu is so peaceful, my... More

Just got back from a weeks stay here. Views are stunning,just outside the hustle of port Vila,easily walkable but buses are so cheap right outside. Staff were amazing,always eager to please yet in obtrusive. Great location,free kayaks, paddle boards. What more could you want. Fantastic.

We had a glorious stay in an upstairs waterside unit with balcony french doors open to the bay. Staff were unobtrusive courteous and helpful, and self contained kitchen a boon for breakfast and lunch. The phosphorescent ocean at night wonderful!

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

My partner and I got back from our stay in Vanuatu yesterday and we wish we were still there! Every staff member was helpful and friendly and never too busy! 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

On the way from the airport, our taxi driver pointed to the right and said, "There is your lagoon". I could not believe the view!! 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...
