The staff were so friendly and more than happy to help in any way, thanks everyone! A really peaceful and convenient spot to base yourself while exploring Efate and even other Vanuatu islands. Also a great place to simply relax while on holiday.

Dear Robert, Thank you for very much for your comments. We are so happy that you and your family appreciated your stay at Fatumaru Lodge for 9 days in September.

Fatumaru Lodge was so beautiful. The staff looked after me so well. It is very quiet and being on the water is ultimate relaxation. The unit was very comfortable and had everything you need. I would recommend this place to anyone traveling to Port Vila. Thank you for having me at your beautiful accomodation.

A hidden oasis off a busy road. A beautifully private and peaceful place to stay close to the airport and easy walking into Port Vila centre. All the staff were wonderfully friendly and helpful. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend Fatumaru Lodge as a place to stay. We would love to visit again. :)
