Christmas Island Lodge

Consistently phenomenal bonefish and GT sight fishing at a great value.

Christmas Island Lodge – Formerly the Captain Cook Hotel is newly renovated and reopening in February 2023! Located about 10 minutes from the CXI airport, the lodge has its own private launch site, only 10 minutes from the inner lagoon, that allows anglers to be the first out on the water each morning targeting a variety of species of fish. The expansive, well-maintained oceanside property provides the opportunity to indulge in evening cocktails and appetizers while recounting fishing stories under the traditional Maneaba (local gathering place) while waves crash on the beach only steps away.

Fishing

CIL offers top-notch expert guides and quick access to the inner lagoon. Which boasts 150 square miles of easily wadable flats in the lagoon, endless oceanside reefs, and incredible blue water opportunities, CXI’s diverse fishery ensures that each day will bring an exciting new angling opportunity.

Accommodation

The lodge offers 5 bungalows each providing two private suites with a refrigerator, AC and ensuite bathrooms with hot/cold water. Hosting a max of 10 anglers ensures private accommodations and a relaxed atmosphere. All rooms are clean, comfortable, and equipped with plenty of space to store gear.
