CALL­ING ALL GLAMPERS: SWELL LODGE is set to open in 2018 on Christ­mas Is­land. An Aus­tralian ter­ri­tory, lo­cated south of Java in the In­dian Ocean, the is­land is famed for its wildlife. Swell Lodge’s 500-me­tre coastal back­yard is home to a wide va­ri­ety of seabirds in­clud­ing tropic birds, frigates and the en­dan­gered Ab­bott’s booby. It’s also a van­tage point from where to watch 45 mil­lion land crabs pass by dur­ing their an­nual mi­gra­tion in the sum­mer. Many roads close tem­po­rar­ily then, so guests will have to walk the last stretch to their eco-chalets: a small sac­ri­fice for such a once-in- a-life­time spec­ta­cle. Its lo­ca­tion, in warm equa­to­rial wa­ters, also in­vites snorkelling and div­ing to en­joy the reefs, and healthy pop­u­la­tions of tur­tles and dol­phins. Swel l L odge wi l l be sola r-pow­ered to keep its foot pr i nt down a nd const r uct ion com­mences later t his yea r. For i nfo, v isit www.swell­lodge.com
