Health & safety update: February 2021

The global pandemic has brought about challenging circumstances for us all. In Vanuatu we have yet to experience a case of COVID-19 in the community, however, international borders have been closed since March 2020. 

Fatumaru Lodge has always maintained a high standard in relation to safety and hygiene to ensure the wellbeing of all guests and staff.  During the border closures we have trained on enhanced procedures and new practices have been implemented to ensure even higher standards in the context of the pandemic and a new era of travel. Below you will read why boutique is the new beautiful in the new era of travel, why Fatumaru Lodge is the perfect choice for your stay in Port Vila, along with some of our new procedures and cleaning measures.
