Thankyou for your review, we are glad that you enjoyed the privacy of our Lodge- we do work hard to maintain the peace and serenity that our guests enjoy. We do understand that a few areas are looking a bit tired- but we are undertaking upgrades and have been doing so over the last 3 years. We hope you come back to Fatumaru Lodge in the coming years to see these areas looking fresh again!

The staff are amazing-they couldn’t be friendlier or more helpful. No request seemed to trouble them. They would happily pick up our 1 year old son and play with him to allow us to finish our breakfast

Thankyou so much for such a fabulous review! We love pikininis, and we don't get many of them, so they get lots of love when they are here! Thanks for your feedback on our staff, they are an amazing team taking care of everyone- including me!

What an absolutely amazing place to begin our stay in Port Vila. Could not fault a thing. Close enough to the hustle and bustle to walk, far enough away to think we were in our own private paradise! Thanks for having us, we’ll be back :)

Relaxing, friendly and casual hotel. Very friendly staff and the rooms have enough facilities to prepare breakfast and lunches or a simple evening meal. A short walk to Numbawan (Town area) and even closer to Tana Plaza (which has an excellent french Bakery). Enjoy!

Thanks for the great review! Our location is so accessible to town, but away from the worst of the traffic noise. So glad you had a great stay.

Beautiful location and extremely friendly staff. Lodge was cleaned every day and facilities provided were excellent. Leaking tap in the shower and basin was a bit noisy at night time and lack of tv reception was a small issue. Julie the head receptionist was very informative and friendly and welcoming. Would stay there again.

Thanks Kristi, I will make sure Isaac checks out the leaking tap and the TV issue, we are on cable TV, with two different providers, so the quality should be great. I will forward this to Julie so she can see that she did a great job. Thanks!

exceptional views from our beachfront room

Pros: enjoyed the pool and kayaking good room facilities excellent view and friendly helpful staff
loved staying here good facilities We felt a bit cold at night and wished there was a blanket rather than just a sheet on the bed however it usually doesn't get that cold I'm told but it would be good to have one in the cupboard. Apart from that it was really nice there

Thanks for your review! We did have a cold snap this month and I'm not sure why we didn't have a blanket in the cupboard but I'll follow up on this!
