8 ladies stayed for 5 nights in september 2013, we had 2, 2 bedroom villas and 1 single room. rooms were lovely and clean,beds comfortable. the first morning we were asked if everything was ok with our rooms and if not what can we do to fix it. the light that had blown was fix that morning. loved the huge bifold doors that opened up. staff were fantastic,a bit of traffic noise from the top rooms, nothing too bad. liz, sebrina and julie were very heplful in sending us in the right direction. walk into town very easy. pool spotless just a bit cold. breakfast fruit, croissants, toast delivered daily from the local market the juice was freshly squeezed . perfect for us ladies, felt very safe and secure. easy to book tours from reception.
Fatumara Lodge perfect for a relaxing get away. oh loved the standup paddle boarding.

Room Tip: go for the water front if possible.

We stayed at Fatumaru Lodge mid August in one of the upstairs waterfront villas. I loved waking up every morning and opening the shutters to look out across the beautiful view of Fatumaru Bay, a great start to the day. The rooms have a great feel, each one taking on the theme of one of the islands and have both ceiling fans and air con. The kitchen was well enough equipped for holiday cooking and we made use of the BBQ by the pool several times. It is a great place to relax and get away from the fast pace for a while. There are only 8 waterfront villas and two 2 bedroom units, so there is never really a lot of people around. The pool area is lovely and breakfast is cooked and served poolside. There is a good selection of books and DVDs and we made good use of the kayaks to explore the bay some more. There is no restaurant for lunch or dinner, but good restaurants and cafes are within walking distance or the 'bus' stops just at the top of the drive for a 3 min drive into town. It can be noisy at night, particularly with local dogs barking through the night, so don't forget to pack some ear plugs just in case. We would definitely go back to Fatumaru Lodge

We stayed at Fatumaru Lodge for 6 nights while on our Honeymoon in Vanuatu in late June. We stayed in one of the ground floor studio units right on the water.
The room was well set up, was clean and tidy, bed was comfy, the bifold doors opening out to the balcony and the water were fabulous!
Fatumaru is great for people who don't want to stay in one of the big flashy resorts and want something quieter and more relaxing. We made good use of the kayaks and stand up paddle boards and explored the bay.
A short walk or bus into central Port Vila but far enough away to be out of the hustle and bustle that is Port Vila.
The studio units were nice and quiet (we heard from other guests that the two bedroom units up the top were noisy as close to main road but the lower ones were fine - suggest if you need two bedrooms to ask for two studio units to be connected - this is possible!)
We spent a lot of time sitting on our balcony or in the hammocks watching the world go by - a beautiful view!
Only negative comment would be that our sheets were not changed during our stay and were quite sandy by the end due to being so close to the water.
All and all a good time was had and we were very happy we chose Fatumaru rather than one of the bigger resorts that we visited. Good value for money!

we stayed here on our last 3 nights of our holiday. it was just what we needed, nice, clean, relaxing, spacious, peaceful and the rooms are gorgeous. Beautiful interior decorating. We had a seaside room on the top floor and watched little fish from our balcony while we ate breakfast. The pool is clean and refreshing, while its great having a free book and dvd library for when it rained. We gave the paddle boards a go in the bay as its really calm and the perfect place to learn. The only downfall is the apparent noise amplification from the bathroom to the living room. (thats not so romantic haha). Other than that we loved it

Room Tip: seaside top floor
