We visited Vanuatu in January and spent 12 nights at Fatumaru Lodge in a double seafront room. It was a delightful place to stay and gave us a great base to explore the island of Effate. Cooking facilities are limited which gave us an excuse for eating out but we managed a couple of meals in our room and could... More

We've just returned from a week in Port Vila, staying at Fatumaru. The rooms are exactly as they look on the website, the staff are so helpful and always available. They are constantly tidying and cleaning the gardens. Its a fairly small complex - only 8 rooms for guests so most of the time we had the pool area to... More

My wife and I spent 6 nights at the wonderful Fatumaru Lodge in late July during our honeymoon in Vanuatu. Our room was great, the staff were all very friendly and helpful - as was everyone we met in Vanuatu - and the location was perfect (only 10min stroll into town). Although Fatumaru doesn't have a restaurant, a breakfast at... More

Pascal and Patricia have done a great job with Fatumaru Lodge. The place is neat and clean and the lodge is only a cheap five minute ride into town by minibus. Importantly it is quiet except for the occasional barking dog. We have stayed at other hotels in Vanuatu but for a self contained waterfront lodge for the very reasonable... More

My husband & I spent the second week of our fortnight's stay in Vanuatu at Fatumaru Lodge. It was a hard act to follow after our first week's accommodation! It was a pleasant location & an easy walk into the centre. The verandah overlooks the Bay & it is unfortunate that it is equipped with chairs that are too low... More

Our holiday in Vanuatu was perfect and this included the accomodation. The rooms were beautifully decorated and being a resort with only 8 units, made this THE most relaxing accomodation I could think of in Port Vila. The units are self contained but your unit's cleaned daily and the towels are changed. There were kids staying at the time so... More

We stayed at Fatumaru Lodge in November, 2004. The rooms are self contained, overlooking the water, very clean and new. Management was very helpful and friendly. The housestaff and garden staff are as well. The owners have put together a small book located in the rooms commenting on local restaurants, which we found very helpful. Additionally the owners are happy... More
