Fatumaru Lodge is located just a short 15 min stroll from the main area. The lodge is tastefully decorated in local style and is very quiet and private. We stayed in the Epi room which had a balcony overlooking the water - perfect to sit and enjoy a drink at sunset. The staff at Fatumaru are lovely and very accommodating....

Only thing is that the lodge is situated in a cove, and opposite a recreation area, and they had a rugby carnival starting at 0630 in the morning. We found out that the...

Sitting on the deck was tranquil and peaceful - the lagoon like a sheet of glass stretching out into the distance. Take a kayak and row down to the Moorings for a cocktail if the mood...

We just finished up our stay of 8 days. Really beautiful looking lodge at a great location overlooking the water.

This is a nice small secluded lodge right on the water just minutes away from the town. Eight comfortable studios sit in the edge of the water with lovely views. Studios have a kitchenette as well. Breakfast is a Continental type of affair - fruit, breads, tea/coffee- right by the pool with views of the bay. The staff is friendly...
