Swell Lodge

Nestled in the jungle in the Christmas Island National Park, surrounded by wildlife and overlooking the ever-changing ocean, Swell Lodge is a single, glass-fronted, solar-powered, luxury eco-chalet offering all-inclusive stays with daily guided activities and even a private chef. Swell Lodge is like nothing else on Earth, and with currently only one eco-chalet on this whole wild coastline, it's the world's most exclusive eco-lodge and the ultimate escape.


Your luxury in the wilderness

The first of eventually eight independent eco-chalets opened in July 2018. Featuring a floor-to-ceiling, wall-to-wall glass front opening to an expansive deck overlooking the ocean, 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.

Embrace the Eco

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.

“Wow! So much more than just a once in a lifetime destination. It was wonderful to immerse myself in such an unique and exclusive retreat with exceptional service, amazing cuisine, personalised guided walks from the rainforest to the beaches and abundance of magnificent birdlife. 5 Stars to the entire Swell Lodge team.
