Great little resort, close to a few restaurants and bars. Excellent customer service by the staff there! I would recommend it to anyone visiting Port Vila

8/10 Very good

Fatumaru Lodge is a hidden gem! About 10-15 minute walk from the main strip of shops and right on the water which was lovely. Only downside was the wifi/tv being pretty unreliable, but really not important in a beautiful place like Vanuatu!

Not posh enough to be so pricey
If you are traveling with a lot of luggage, be sure to arrange for a taxi. There is a steep, tight turn that many transports are not able to make, including the pick-up to return to the airport. The night guard was very helpful, but it was difficult to get all of our suitcases up to the turn-off for the early morning airport pick up. There was no mosquito net on the single bed for our daughter and the balcony was unscreened. We all three slept in the King size bed (which was quite comfortable). There were only 2 towels, and since we came late and left early, we could not request another. The shower dripped all night long. We had a late arrival and appreciated the flexibility of staff to help us out with that. Our quick overnight was probably not adequate to give a fair trial, but we were not so positively impressed that we feel compelled to return.

The property was lovely, overlooking a lagoon part of the ocean.. great for kayaking. Lovely bungalows, pool, flowers. Friendly, helpful, staff. Rooms nice and cool. Shower leaked a bit but not a big deal. Pleasant pool area. Easy to get a mini van for rides into town or Mele beach on the road by driveway.

Whilst the rooms have been built in a beautiful way which reminds of an Italian albergo the property is in need of some TLC. Our shower head was half blocked and dripped all day and night. The bathroom tiles are grubby. Beds and rooms have been tidy and there is a little outside kitchenette and seating area on the balcony. Pool would also need a clean. Staff have been very friendly and helpful. Good options are a short walk or bus ride away which didn’t bother us. There is a great cafe/ bakery down the road in the shopping center and heaps of restaurants in town.
