SWELL LODGE

Eco Lodge on Christmas Island
FEATURES

Your accommodation features a luxurious tiled ensuite bathroom with hot shower and modern odourless composting toilet, satellite wi-fi, a ceiling fan, canvas side-walls, a king size bed, stone bench tops and more…

Every piece of this remarkable wilderness escape has been carefully carried in and assembled by hand.

 

ACTIVITIES

You can do as much or as little as you want. There’s amazing wildlife including birds and crabs, there’s boardwalks through RAMSAR wetlands to a waterfall, hiking, snorkeling and diving, cultural experiences and even golf!

Massage and yoga sessions are available as an optional extra.

Wander tranquil rainforest trails to secluded beaches, along boardwalks through RAMSAR wetlands to pristine waterfalls, refreshing tidal rockpools, swimming holes & exhilarating blowholes. Admire the towering, vine-wrapped trees, step around all the red and coconut crabs, interact with inquisitive little thrushes and enjoy the prehistoric calls of nesting frigate birds, tropicbirds and boobies overhead.

 

THE ENVIRONMENT

From the Owners

Swell Lodge is incredibly privileged to exist inside a National Park and beside a RAMSAR-listed wetland. We’re governed by strict environmental regulations and use the latest technology to ensure that while surrounded by luxury and modern conveniences, your stay in the wilderness still has minimal impact on this pristine environment.

Each of our 100% solar-powered eco-chalets has a 1.4KW solar array which alone saves over 750kgs of CO2 entering the atmosphere every year and our energy efficient, high-output ceiling fan removes the need for air conditioning, which saves an additional 1,500kgs of CO2 annually, compared to staying in a regular hotel room.

We’re also proud to feature purely solar-heated hot water, a modern odourless composting toilet, crab-safe vehicle attachments and a carbon-offset program realised through ‘Greenfeet’ with 58 native trees planted to offset the CO2 emissions from our lodge vehicles.

Swell Lodge has been awarded Ecotourism Australia’s highest level of certification ‘Advanced Ecotourism’ as well as a ‘Climate Action Business’ reserved for exemplary operators in terms of our ecological sustainability, natural area management and provision of authentic cultural experiences, a recognition also approved by the Global Sustainable Tourism Council (GSTC). Sweet dreams.

Solar Powered
Completely off-grid & lithium storage, with app to track your power usage.

 

 

 

What we love…

Sounding Good?  Read on…

Swell Lodge is like nothing else on Earth, and with currently only one eco-lodge on the whole wild coastline, it’s the world’s most exclusive eco-lodge and the ultimate escape.

The first of eventually eight independent eco-chalets, Swell Lodge opened in July 2018.  Accommodation is a single, glass-fronted, solar-powered, luxury eco-chalet, offering all-inclusive accommodation with daily guided activities and even a private chef. The wall-to-wall glass front opens to an expansive deck overlooking the ocean.  Other features include luxurious tiled ensuite bathroom with hot shower and modern odourless composting toilet, satellite wi-fi, a ceiling fan, canvas side-walls, a king size bed, stone bench tops and more… Every piece of this remarkable wilderness escape has been carefully carried in and assembled by hand.

Founders of Swell Lodge, Chris and Jess Bray are two young Australians who run small-group, luxury photo tours to the world’s most wonderful places. In 2014 they started running tours to Christmas Island, and fell in love with the place, and in 2016, Parks Australia put out a call for ‘Expressions of Interest’ for commercial opportunities ‘such as eco-accommodation’ within Christmas Island National park, and they applied.

Virgin Australia flies to Christmas Island twice a week from Perth (Currently on Tuesdays and Saturdays, $1,100 AUD return) and there’s a weekly charter flight from Jakarta every Saturday (operated by Garuda Airlines, $780 AUD return, book via Indian Ocean Experiences).
