Fatumara Lodge is a lovely place to stay for a visit to Port Vila. Myself and my mother had the penthouse unit which was amazing accommodation which overlooked the bay. There was plenty of room with a kitchen that had absolutely everything you could need if you wanted to cook

We were extremely happy with our very well appointed waterfront studio. The view across Fatumaru Bay was delightful, especially at sunset. The pool and all of the facilities were ideal. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff. They went out of their way to be friendly without

We stayed at Fatumaru for the first 3 nights of our holiday. The bed was comfy and air-conditioning cool. We weren't aware that you couldnt swim in the water until we asked why we were the only ones swimming but fortunately we didnt get sick. So we stuck to the pool after that.

Hi Kate, Thanks so much for taking the time to leave us a review. There is a temporary ban on swimming only off the foreshore along Port Vila and this side of Fatumaru Bay. However, it is only applied to swimming ON the foreshore- that is from the beach, to 20m outwards;, swimming is permitted offshore. Many of our guests enjoy taking the kayaks and paddleboards across to the beach on the opposite side of our little bay. The Department of Water Resources issued the ban while the assess the results of water testing, with the area of concern being down at the market house, however as a somewhat pre-emptive measure they have extended the ban to the whole foreshore,. They have not advised that there is a risk to health and as far as we are aware people have not been getting sick. Many of the locals on the peninsula opposite our lodge continue to swim daily. We're glad that you enjoyed your stay with us, otherwise. Regards, Rae HM

Hello. Is the beach nice and can you swim right at the Lodge?
Dear Sir/Madam, We are located in Town on a small bay called Fatumaru Bay, the bay is not very deep and there is no snorkeling. However you can take the stand up paddle or Kayak (FOC) and snorkel on the reef about 300 meters away. You can swim in the water at Fatumaru Lodge. The beach is small but you can rest on long chair there. You can book fatumaru lodge directly on trip advisor or on our website Hope to welcome you soon Pascal - Owner

"Non smokers - get non smoking room"
"Seafront studio apartment overlooking the water for single or couple."
"All seemed good. 2 bedroom apartments are set back from the beach but lovely views and smaller rooms on waterfront."
"Best to get a villa on the upper floor - much better view of the bay."
"Our room was spacious and accommodated the 3 of us well! "
