Reviewed 29 January 2017 via mobile

Situated an easy ten minute walk from town the Fatumaru Lodge is a quiet haven for visitors. The road in from the highway winds down a steep hill towards the bay. Try and stay in the waterfront units, the view is fantastic. These units have a basic kitchen and a balcony to relax and take in the views. The pool...

The hotel is very lovely. A special service is that kayaks and SUP boards are available for free. The hotel is very quiet. It's located at the beginning of the city center (about 10 minutes walk to the first restaurant). Rooms are very nice.

Fatumaru Lodge has a great location, and is a genuine 10 minutes walk or 4 minute bus ride from Port Vila. We stayed 6 nights in a down-stairs, self-contained waterfront apartment where you could step on to a little sandy beach, or take-in the superb bay views from the privacy of your own veranda. The resort is very picturesque with...

A last minute booking took us here and we didn't realize there are no restaurant in the hotel but it's convenience to walk or take a B-Bus to restaurants or downtown anyway. Super friendly staff, only 10 rooms in the hotel so it's super quiet with 24 hours swimming pool, can fish, canoe and water paddling anything for no extra...

The location of the place is very close to the city center - very easy to catch the public transport (the minibuses), and you can walk as well for 10-15 mins. Both Efate apartment and sea front studio have breathtaking views on the bay, really good. The proximity to the man road can be noisy sometimes, if staying in an...

I stayed here with a couple of friends recently and wish we had stayed longer. The rooms are spacious, tastefully decorated and very comfortable. Safe and secure property with a wonderful view, lagoon-side pool and all the small touches that come with a boutique hotel. Excellent place to stay in Port Vila.
