STAYING AT SWELL LODGE

IS LIKE NOTHING ELSE ON EARTH

THE BEST OF CHRISTMAS ISLAND

Our nightly rates at Swell Lodge are fixed, year-round and are all-inclusive with airport pickups, daily guided activities, Wi-Fi, complimentary snorkel gear, all meals and unlimited drinks - even a private chef who comes to cook gourmet cuisine using fresh local ingredients right on your ocean deck. From the moment you step off the plane and meet your guide, all your needs will be taken care of.

Your daily guided activities will depend on the length of your stay, but may include jungle walks to refreshing waterfalls you can stand under, secluded beaches, lookouts, natural rock pools, blowholes, plenty of red, blue and robber crabs, amazing birdlife, caves you can swim in, Parks bird feeding, cove snorkels - even a boat charter out to look for dolphins, giant trevally (and in the right season, even whale sharks) to snorkel with! Christmas Island is impossibly diverse and you'll never run out of things to see and do! We have a minimum 3-night stay, however to get the most out of your Christmas Island experience, we strongly recommend staying for 7-nights.

VIP Package

(UPON REQUEST)

DEPOSIT

A 20% non-refundable, non-transferrable deposit is required at the time of booking and must be paid within 7 days. Payment of your deposit indicates your acceptance of our booking terms and conditions. The remainder is required two months prior to arrival or at time of booking if less than two months away. If you cancel within two months of arrival, 50% of the total amount paid will be refunded unless you cancel within one month of your planned arrival date, in which case 100% of amount paid is forfeit.

No refund will be given for events beyond our control, such as non-arrival, unused services, unused nights, or additional expenses incurred as a result of airline or weather disruption. Therefore, strongly recommend that you have comprehensive travel insurance when travelling to Christmas Island to cover contingencies.

FLIGHTS & INSURANCE

Christmas Island is currently serviced by three flights a week, 2 from Perth and 1 from Jakarta, as well as one every two weeks from Kuala Lumpur. It’s not uncommon to experience flight disruptions due to operational requirements by the airline or weather (especially during the wet season between November and April). Unforeseen circumstances like this may result in you having to change your plans or even cancel at the last moment. To protect non-refundable deposits and payments we strongly recommend purchasing comprehensive travel insurance, ensuring your policy includes trip cancellation and emergency medical care cover.

RATES

All rates are in Australian dollars (AUD) and do not include GST (nor is GST payable by you, as Christmas Island is GST-free).

PET & WILDLIFE POLICY

Parks Australia and quarantine limitations do not permit pets anywhere in the National Park or at Swell Lodge. Guests are also not permitted to feed the wildlife.

ITINERARY CHANGES

Your exact itinerary may be shuffled around or tweaked according to weather, tides, track-work, tree-falls, road closures, crab migration or other factors outside our control which will ultimately just add to your island adventure, but rest assured that we’ll always be working flat-out to get you to all the best places at the best times of day for the best possible Christmas Island experience! No refunds will be given for experiences missed due to factors outside our control. With sufficient notice, we may also be able to adjust itineraries to suit any special interests, however this may not always be possible.

BOOKING DURING CRAB MIGRATION (Oct-Jan):

Are you sure? Christmas Island is full of red crabs, every day of every year. While more prolific in the wet season, even during the dry season you will still find plenty of them, whenever you want, so don’t feel that you have to come ‘during crab migration’ just to see our famous crabs! While certainly a spectacular event to witness if you’re lucky, it can be hard to predict and there are drawbacks like road closures, rain etc which may effect your stay during this time. Please read our comprehensive information document about booking between October and January.
