I was in Vanuatu for business purposes and stayed 5 nights at the Fatumaru Lodge. Very relaxing atmosphere. Lovely personel. Close to the airport and Port Vila center and restaurants. Stunning view on the bay from the rooms.

The staff were wonderful, our self contained unit was waterfront with a front seat view of the harbour and we could watch cruise ships arriving and leaving (two cruise ships during our 7 night stsy). Takes about 10 to 15 minutes to walk...

I had an upstairs room right on the water front with a great view and was quite private. perfect. The door to the balcony opens right up. The room had cooking facilities, although I dined at the many restaurants within easy walk. I was so pleased I chose this lodge.

Front rooms have direct access to beach & views across to the harbour. Adequate cooking facilities & fridge allow for self catering. Fresh towels supplied daily by delightfull &happy staff. Kayaks available for guest's use, but they are not the greatest. Very quiet location, but with easy access totown by "bus" or 15minute walk.
