Grand Slam Fly Fishing Lodge is the newest and most luxurious lodge operation on one of the world’s greatest saltwater flats fisheries, the incomparable Ascension Bay. First impressions are pretty unanimous – “wow this place is unbelievable” with over-the-top accommodations. amenities and gourmet food and beverage service, it rivals any 5-star boutique resort hotel. And the fishing program rivals any of the top lodges in the Caribbean basin.
As a fishery, Ascension Bay is a proven commodity, long considered one of the best locations in the world to accomplish the coveted “Grand Slam”; that landing a tarpon, a bonefish and a permit in one day. And the snook fishing can be excellent if you aspire to a “Super Grand Slam”. Grand Slam Fly Fishing Lodge was fortunate to recruit one of the most experienced and eminently qualified persons to manage the lodge and the fishing program. Bobby Settles spent the past 23 years on Ascension Bay as owner/manager and fishing director of Casa Blanca Lodge, located on the south side of the Bay as well as Playa Blanca Lodge. Bobby not only brings to the table his vast knowledge of Ascension Bay and how best to catch these fish on a fly, he’s brought with him a stable of loyal veteran guides, some of whom have guided the bay for over 20 years themselves. Under Bobby’s direction, the Grand Slam fishing program is as good as it gets.
Accommodations at Grand Slam Lodge are in six, two-story beachfront villas, each with two separate rooms featuring contemporary interiors. The ground floor rooms each have two king-sized beds, an ocean-view Jacuzzi, and a wrap-around deck with lounge chairs and a hammock. The second level bedrooms have one king-sized bed, a living area, an ocean-view Jacuzzi and a balcony with a hammock.
Each of the rooms has air conditioning, 24-hour electricity and hot water. Truly a boutique resort hotel, no expense was spared at Grand Slam with fixtures and amenities like with king-sized beds, a flat screen television with satellite service and DVD player, an iPod docking station for music and a stocked mini bar in each room. Each private bath is furnished with double Italian marble sinks.
The heart of the resort is the spectacular main lodge “palapa” housing the bar and the spectacular Kai Restaurant where gourmet meals prepared from the freshest local ingredients are served in air-conditioned comfort inside, or “al fresco” on the covered restaurant deck overlooking the Caribbean.
Situated on a spectacular stretch of white sand beach, the resort caters to hard core anglers, those who are new to the game, as well non-fishing guests. Non fishing guests will enjoy the ocean view pool as well as the gorgeous manicured, palm studded white sand beach with cabañas and “beach beds”.
