The Villages Lodge is widely recognised as the premier bonefishing Lodge on Christmas Island. We are the only Lodge on the Island that offers One guide for every angler for your entire stay at no extra charge. This will guarantee that you won’t have any down time on the flats and will definately have more opportunities to cast to and catch more fish.
The Villages Lodge is a community based endeavor and has been established since 2006. Located on the lagoon on the pristine shoreline of Discovery Beach overlooking the beautiful waters of the lagoon. All of the boats are anchored right out front and only seconds walk from your accommodation,once again capitalizing on no down time . Within 15 minutes of boarding your skiff you can be wading a flat and catching bonefish!! In fact plenty of bonefish can also be caught right on the flats in front of the Lodge!!
The Villages features 12 air-conditioned double twin share bungalows with covered porch that enjoy the beautiful lagoon views,all of them ensuited and having their own small fridge. Daily housekeeping provides you with fresh towels every day and also ensures your room is clean and tidy upon your return at the end of each day. A laundry service and WIFI is also available for a small weekly fee. A “maneaba” which is the local name for a gathering centre is at the heart of the Villages and has an adjoining bar,the perfect place to gather prior to dinner each evening to enjoy a drink and snacks,including fresh sashimi as well as chat about the days fishing and meet with the head guide to discuss the next day’s fishing programme
