At a glance

Offering an entire pristine coastline to yourself with seabirds soaring overhead and dolphins leaping out the front, Swell Lodge – the world’s most exclusive eco-lodge – is redefining both privacy and wilderness luxury. Nestled in the jungle inside the Christmas Island National Park is a single, glass-fronted, solar-powered, luxury, modern eco-chalet offering all-inclusive stays with daily guided activities, a private chef on your balcony and jaw-dropping, sunset-over-the-ocean, panoramic views.


Swell Lodge is perched on the secluded, western coastline of ‘Australia’s Galapagos’ – the relatively undiscovered Australian territory of Christmas Island. It’s a wonderland of experiences – many of them within easy walking distance from your eco-chalet if you can pull yourself way from the view. There’s amazing wildlife including endemic birds and crabs, boardwalks through RAMSAR wetlands to a waterfall you can cool off under, hiking, turtle-nesting beaches, world-class snorkelling and diving over vibrant coral reefs and spectacular drop-off walls in the crystal-clear 28-degree water, cultural experiences, an open-air cinema and even Australia’s most northerly golf course!

Couples on a romantic getaway will love

What could be more romantic than enjoying a complimentary bottle of sparkling wine and a cheese platter watching the sun go down over the ocean before snuggling into your king bed listening to the sound of the ocean, knowing that you are the only people on this entire wild coastline? Combined with the convenience of a private chef coming to you and daily guided activities including boat trips, blowholes, empty beaches and boardwalks through RAMSAR wetlands, Swell Lodge offers the ultimate luxury in the wilderness – a private escape like nothing else on Earth.

Christmas Island accommodation

Think modern, minimalist, luxury, waterfront apartment – in the middle of the wilderness. Featuring a ceiling-to-floor, wall-to-wall glass front with an expansive deck overlooking the ocean, a luxurious tiled ensuite bathroom with hot shower, satellite Wi-Fi, a ceiling fan, canvas side-walls, a king bed, stone bench tops and more. Every piece of this remarkable wilderness escape has been carefully carried into the National Park and assembled by hand.

Best room for two for a romantic escape

The first of eventually eight eco-chalets to be individually nestled into their own private slice of paradise along this wilderness coastline, now is the time to book the world’s most secluded retreat.

Dining and leisure

When you’re already staying in the most luxurious venue with the best views on the island, you’d be crazy to go out for dinner. Instead, our private chef will arrive at your eco-chalet in the evenings and prepare – just for you – a gourmet dining experience on your oceanfront deck combining many of the locally-grown and foraged ingredients. Breakfast is a relaxed, self-serve affair with a selection of cereals, yoghurt, fresh fruit and other treats to start your day at your own pace. After a morning’s optional (though included) guided activity, a gourmet picnic lunch will be ready for you, again courtesy of your private chef.

Spa and wellness

Swell Lodge is the perfect locale to relax, unwind and reconnect with each other and with nature. In the comfort of your own private eco-chalet, allow our qualified masseuse assist you to relax, rejuvenate and heal against the soothing sounds of the ocean swell with her one hour, individually tailored, signature massage treatment to leave you feeling flexible and free. We also have a personal yoga instructor ready to join you on your oceanfront deck and flow you through a private session combining breathing, movement and meditation in a sequence of postures.
