Fatumaru Lodge Update:
Category 5 TC Harold starting crossing the islands of Vanuatu on Monday afternoon and passed north of Efate island in the early hours of Tuesday morning. Port Vila was south of the cyclone's path and escaped the worst; Fatumaru Lodge sustained no damage and our doors are open.
Our thoughts and prayers are with our brothers and sisters in the north.

Is there any word locally on whether there have been any fatalities?

So glad you’re all safe having been thinking and praying for you all 🙏🏻🙏🏻

In what honestly feels like the toughest day to be at work in a month, I went looking for a photo in my files that was full of hope and sunshine. As I sit to read cyclone updates for the coming days in our very quiet, little hotel, I leave you with this photo of a family trip the gorgeous island of Pele, north of Efate. It was a magical weekend exploring and enjoying time with family. A reminder for me, and for you, that sunshine and good times lie ahead. Our thoughts and wishes to all those around the world who are having a tough day.

This was a great weekend may there be many more in the future. I guess if we learn one thing from this monster and it is to appreciate your friends and family and that we should be taking the time to smell the roses and enjoy what we have no matter how small it is

Yes I know it's so tough ... It's also really tough being tough for all the people that are depending on you and your strength .. I am really so sorry for our northern brothers and sisters .. it's just a bit too much .. but we are woman Vanuatu and we will make it through

Take care Rae - thinking of you. Xxx

Stay safe Rae and all at Fatumaru 🙏🏻

Stay safe & well my wonderful friends!

Fatumaru Lodge refuses to close.
Recent economic assessments in Vanuatu estimate that each ni-Vanuatu income earner supports 7 dependents in their family- this statistic has recently increased due to the number of businesses that have been impelled to close their doors temporarily . Our last guest left yesterday, it could be easy for us to close for 4 months. But we refuse to close and let all our staff go.
Staff salary is our priority, we will remain open to accommodate stranded guests, or locals in need of a comfortable and secure location to wait out the situation. We have reduced services on offer, including our breakfast service (now room service only) to minimize risks to staff and guests.
Staff rosters and guest use of outdoor areas will be adjusted so that there are minimal numbers in any one area at one time. At the same time people need to breathe. We are looking at mini-groups for yoga classes (max 4), aqua gym (max 4) and beginner paddle board classes (max 3) hence the social gathering restrictions will not be breached.
We have slashed our rates with two goals:
1. Pay our staff and suppliers
2. Be more affordable for tourists who did not anticipate such a long holiday (we are self-contained)!
Staff Update: Many of you will be familiar with these lovely ladies picture,
Jennifer is maintained on maternity leave with her new baby (it’s a girl!!!!!!) and Nettie and Julie who are main income earners for their families are taking turns at holding down the fort and ensuring our guests are as comfortable as possible. Oh...then there's me (Rae) keeping social media going, keeping in touch with guests about reservations....and learning how to home school- yeesh!

This lovely smile belongs to Nettie! Recently promoted to Houskeeping and Services Supervisor, she has been with the FL family since 2004 and is a key pillar of our operations. Mother of two, francophone, always smiling hello! She tries to stay behind the scenes so I snapped this photo on the surprise during a room inspection. ... See MoreSee Less
