We were here in early Sept. Unfortunately discovered this place too late to secure a booking for the whole week but we enjoyed 4 lovely days here. In my opinion the best situation in or around Port Vila. It is right on the beach (not possible unless you stay at a resort (further out of town)), easy walking distance into... More

Staying at the Lodge was marked by good taste - no plastic anywhere, everything is 'echt' - the real thing - from furniture (all wood) to the china in the kitchenette, where the knives were sharp and the saucepans good quality. Transport to town is quick and cheap, and one of our best experiences was shopping at the big fruit... More

Perfectly comfortable lodge in a handy location with quiet view of the Fatumaru lagoon. We had an upstairs room and would recommend this. Just a little more private. Kayaks were great and staff very helpful with any request. A little better hot water system would have given this 5 stars instead of 4. Still, defintely value for money.

This was our first hotel in Vanuatu and we found it comfortable, clean and friendly. It was run by locals, but I'm not fully sure of its ownership. It did feel like it was locally owned. We chose it based on its proximity to the airport as we were flying to another island in two days. The rooms are decorated... More

We visited Fatumaru Lodge for the first week in June 2012. The staff were attentive and friendly from the moment we checked in. Emily (the lovely lady who was at the Reception for most of our stay) was very helpful throughout our time at the lodge and helped us book a number of tours at a fair price. The room... More

We stayed here for three nights in their Port Vila Room. Loved having the full width doors to open in the morning. Free use of kayaks and paddleboards was very good. The staff were always very friendly, and very happy to sort out any excursion requests we had. Breakfast by the pool featuring fruit picked from their own trees, local... More

We have just spent a week here at Fatumaru Lodge and, having been to Vanuatu many times before, feel we know many of the resorts from previous visits. This was for us, by far the best. It's a great location, walking distance to town, which is very pleasant at this time of the year as it's not too hot or... More

Fatumaru Lodge was a great spot for a relaxing girls getaway in Port Vila. The amazingly friendly staff were always willing to help and made us feel at home. We had one of the two bedroom apartments (the Port Vila Room) which was perfect for us – a queen size bed in the front room and two singles in the... More

Could not fault these guys at all! Emily and Isaac were amazing hosts/gardner and the rooms with sea font view were the best I've had in my travels. Value for money - perfect! 10 minute walk to own was easy, smooth and quite nice. Recommended over and over!!

Fatumara Lodge is very clean & tidy but the rooms are in need of a paint job, and also the shower room needs up-dating, we stayed in the Santos Room,....views over the water, nice to hear the water lapping on the shore at night whilst you are tucked up in bed,.....but I would have thought that the Breakfast ( $12...
