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. :)
