Just recently two girlfriends and I went to Vanuatu to celebrate my birthday. After lots of googling accomodation we finally decided on Fatumaru Lodge. The e-mail communications I had with Elizabeth, Emily and Pascal (the owner) were prompt and professional. They answered all our questions and concerns and then some! We found the Lodge to be in an excellent position... More

I did love the location of Fatumaru Lodge, I loved how you could jump off the balcony at high tide into the water and I loved how you could row into town or to Iririki if you really wanted to. Things I didn't love: The fact you share the accommodation and area with 8 other rooms that are basically sitting... More

This accommodation is divine. It is like a home away from home... with a little kitchen & bbq area at the poolside. And the most gorgeous water views into Fatumaru Bay. The staff are so friendly & gave us the best care you could possibly ask for. There was no hesitation if we needed anything. Fatumaru Lodge is very family... More

The rooms are decorated in lovely timber finishes, with doors that open all the way giving a fantastic view out into Pt Vila Bay. Beds are great, rooms are airconditioned and have ceiling fans so all conditions are catered for. The kitchens are compact but have enough to self cater.

We stayed at Fatumaru Lodge for the first 4 days of our Vanuatu Honeymoon and had a lovely time. We stayed in 'Santo' Room, which was right on the water and had a lovely view. The room was fairly clean and had an air-conditioner which is pretty much essential for the time of year. Pascal our host and Emily (guest... More
