Fatumaru Lodge Port Vila

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Fatumaru Lodge was short walk to Port Vila Central, quiet despite being down from the main road and on the waters edge. Rooms were lovely and clean, had an amazing view and bed was sublime - a very comfy king sized poster bed and staff were very helpful. Perfect for us

This is usually my favorite place to stay but it seems to have changed. My visit was appalling. Stuck in a back appartment with no water view and the pool was empty. I ended up just leaving and booking a room at the grand to enjoy the pool and view. I’m hopping the manager starts to take a little more care in coustomer satisfaction as this venue used to be amazing at making sure your stay was perfect,

The staff were all very welcoming, friendly and helpful. The lodge was in a central location in Port Vila, within walking distance of shops and restaurants. The only downfall was that the pool was out of service during our stay.

Absolutely fabulous staff led by Bessie ... spotlessly clean ...and with a personal lagoon (literally) ... walking distance to town and a stones throw away from great eateries. You won't have to look to far for organizing your tours ...Bessie and team will help you right out. This place represents the best of Vanuatu.

We stayed just two nights at the beginning of our trip and absolutely loved it. The accomodation is beautiful (pics do do it justice). The rooms are right on the water and the views are amazing. The staff were very nice and you can just grab the kayaks at your leisure. The pool has been recently upgraded and it’s beautiful. Great for a night swim. Great location too. We’ll grab another night or two at the end of our trip.

We only stayed overnight before flying to Tanna but would have been happy to stay here for longer. We had the Seaview Luxury Penthouse for our family of 5 and it was superb. The views from the expansive deck over Port Vila Bay were gorgeous. Every conceivable amenity was provided in the Penthouse, it was just a shame we were not staying longer to fully enjoy everything. On our arrival, the staff made us feel so welcomed and were only too happy to book transport back to the airport the following day. We had been travelling for 20 hours when we finally arrived at Fatumaru Lodge so falling into the beautiful lagoon waters at our door step enlivened everyone considerably. We spent several hours having fun on the paddleboards & kayaks, burning off some energy from the long flights & airport waits. It is within easy walking distance to our favourite chinese restaurant & a local handy store. The close proximity to the highway makes flagging down a bus very easy for a quick trip into downtown Vila. The location is so quiet & peaceful yet still convenient. Breakfast was a simple but adequate affair served next to the pool which was under repairs. We would not hesitate to stay here for a longer time on our next visit - a hidden gem that we are happy to have discovered & will now be our chosen accommodation when we return to Vila.

Staff very helpful and friendly. Nothing too difficult. Quiet location only short walk into town. Beautiful views/location. Rooms very comfortable with everything you need. Pick up from airport very efficient and helpful too.

If you are staying in Port Villa I cannot recommed this place enough. The water front apartments are right on the lagoon and have swimming access. It is only a short walk or bus ride into town with many tasty restaurants and the airport is easily accessible by bus. The staff are very friendly and welcoming. We will be back.

We spend one night at Futumaru Lodge after 10 days at Bokissa Island,because of the early flight we didn't see much of Port Vila,but I can say the accommodation at Futuramu was very good, nice and clean room the people working here very helpful,thanks to lady at reception and security man who walk as to near restaurant. Bed and pillows very comfy. Next time for sure I would spend more days in this beautiful resort.

My son's and I stayed at Fatumaru Lodge for 8 nights, and weren't disappointed. We loved our stay at Faturmaru, it was quiet not over crowded like other Resorts. The room was air conditioned and fan which was a comfort to the hot humid weather we had while in Vila. Our room was fantastic it was cleaned everyday and beds made, we stayed in Epi room right on the water you won't be disappointed with the view every day. Cooking facilities were good not that we cooked much it was a holiday for relaxing being a single parent. My son's and I swam in the pool or the salt water both were good to swim. Close to town about 10 to 15 min walking distance, close to Tana Rousette complex which has eating outlets and a cinema. At the top of driveway you can catch a local bus for 150 vatu. If you need any help don't hesitate to ask Bessie or the other staff they're the best. Bessie tankyu tumas i certainly found a dear friend and sista for life. If we come back will defiantly be staying with you again at Fatumaru Lodge the boy's loved it, tank yu tumas xx
