Hi Steve, Thanks for taking the time to leave us such in-depth feedback, very much appreciated. We will are in the processing of purchasing new kayak paddles after several have been missing. I have also overseen the reinstallation of the mosquito net for that apartment, my sincere apologies that it was not repaired and put back before your stay. Isaac will also service the hot water system, it may have a buildup of calcium affecting the efficiency of the system. I will see why that fridge may be leaking. But again, thank you so much for your kind words about our lodge, our staff and guests. Your family was a pleasure to host, and I do so hope that you will be back to stay with us again in the not to distant future. For now, a very warm Merry Christmas to you and your family. Warm Regards, Rae Ernst-Kelly, HM

The friendly staff couldn't do enough for us. The rooms are really nice and front right onto the water. It's close to a lot of restaurants and a really nice French bakery. We loved our stay here and would recommend it to anyone.

Great great facilities, helpful stuff. The beach was unforgettable, we saw fishes and crabs at night, birds came to catch them in early morning. Great fun kayaking to the other side of beach. Walking distance to city centre. 100% recommended.

Hi, we are a family of 5. The youngest being 11. Is there enough room in the 2bedroom apartment for the 5 of us? Or do we have to book the penthouse?
The room I had was a queen bed in the entrance room and 3 singles in the back room.

Hi. Is it possible to move the single bed next to the queen for the studio room? we have a 2 year old with us and he might fall off the bed otherwise!
Hi Astrid, How about a porta-cot? We can provide these free of charge? Thanks Rae, HM

Hello. Is the beach nice and can you swim right at the Lodge?
Dear Sir/Madam, We are located in Town on a small bay called Fatumaru Bay, the bay is not very deep and there is no snorkeling. However you can take the stand up paddle or Kayak (FOC) and snorkel on the reef about 300 meters away. You can swim in the water at Fatumaru Lodge. The beach is small but you can rest on long chair there. You can book fatumaru lodge directly on trip advisor or on our website Hope to welcome you soon Pascal - Owner

Great thank you so much Pascal, very close to booking in for a week in November! But i was also wondering are the rooms advertised as "studio suite, beach side" for two people the rooms as pictured on the bottom floor right on the beach? And the standard two bedroom apartments are the ones on the top floor? Thank you again!
hello again, we would love to have you with us in November.. we have amazing rates during this period. All the appartement on the seafront are self-contained studios about 45 sqm bedroom with a terrace over Fatumaru bay (can be ground level or first floor -up to 3 people)). Our 2 bedroom apartments are about 30meters back in another building with a great view over port vila bay but not on the seafront (55sqm up to 4 people). hope this will help you with your booking. see you soon

Hi there, I was just wanting to know is the Fatumaru Bay ideal for snorkelling?? Thanks!
Dear Sir, Thank you for your interest in Vanuatu and Fatumaru Lodge. Fatumaru bay is a protected bay inside port vila, the reef is about 400 meters further down the ocean. So you can swim in the bay but you can not snorkel as there is no coral. However you can take a kayak or a paddle (FOC) and go to the reef to look at our tropical fishes. We will be happy to welcome you at Fatumaru Lodge. Tropical regards, Pascal, Owner.

"Best to get a villa on the upper floor - much better view of the bay."
"Our room was spacious and accommodated the 3 of us well! "
"Erromango definately as it faces the beach and has no railing on the deck so uninterrupted view of the bay"
"The rooms are great everything provided "
"The 2 bedroom apartments are half way up a steep hill not on the water. And there treees blocking any views. "
