Very clean and we'll kept. There's a small jetty out into the bay from which to sit and watch the fish or enjoy the view. The verandahs also open... More

Excellent and responsive (but not intrusive) staff. This is good value mid-level accommodation. Small, but more than adequate, "kitchen". Walk to town in 15 minutes or take bus (v150 adult/v50 child). Restaurants close by. Cinema 5 minute walk for cruise ship days. High recommend.

Delightful stay in a well run, clean and smaller resort. It offered a pool, kayaking on an amazing bay and a beachside relaxing area. The smaller size generally meant you often felt you had the place to yourself. Bessie and the staff were always on hand to help make it a memorable experience.

Fatumaru Lodge is located just a short 15 min stroll from the main area. The lodge is tastefully decorated in local style and is very quiet and private. We stayed in the Epi room which had a balcony overlooking the water - perfect to sit and enjoy a drink at sunset. The staff at Fatumaru are lovely and very accommodating.... More

Everything was perfect. The room was clean and the staff were very helpful. Is only a 5 minute walk to restaurants and 10 minutes to the "city". Only thing is that the lodge is situated in a cove, and opposite a recreation area, and they had a rugby carnival starting at 0630 in the morning. We found out that the... More

We stayed waterfront at Fatamaru Lodge. The views are beautiful and we could see the cruise ships coming and going into P V. Harbour. Sitting on the deck was tranquil and peaceful - the lagoon like a sheet of glass stretching out into the distance. Take a kayak and row down to the Moorings for a cocktail if the mood... More
