We spent 6 days at Red Monkey Beach Lodge back in March. We had done a few days of sightseeing in Stonetown, then headed to Jambiani for some relaxation at the beach. Red Monkey was a great place for this. It's a smaller lodge, so it wasn't too busy and allowed for a lot of time lounging on the beach.... More

We visited Zanzibar recently and although we didn't stay at the red monkey we did end up there for an evening at the recommendation of a friend. It was a 'jam session' where people were invited up to sing and play songs. There was a really cool atmosphere and the place looked great! Everyone was really friendly and it was... More

A lovely place to relax for a few days! Brilliant location, right on the beach, and with no other hotels to the south, which means you don't get gawped at by all the other tourists on holiday in Jambiani walking up and down the beach. There's a sand spit you can walk down at low tide and even a promise... More

Amazing location right next to the beach, great food and friendly staff and service. Red colobus monkeys are great too but get up early (before 8am really) for breakfast to see them. Rooms are also very clean and spacious with huge beds. There is a worldwide kite surfing company located right next door so opportunities to do kite surfing if... More

Every time I've been Jambiani I'm usually next door Red Monkey but this time I was invited to check out the Acoustic Mondays and since then I just fell in love with the place. The staff is friendly and the food is really really good. I didn't sleep there but my friends who spent 2 nights there highly recommended the... More

We stayed for ten nights in a sea view bungalow. Every night we fell asleep to the sound of the waves and woke up each morning with the sun rising just outside our room. The rooms are clean and have everything you need but no luxury. The staff is super friendly and help you with all your questions and needs.... More

We stayed here with my wife for 3 nights, we were able to get a room even though we didn't book in advance. The beach is very beautiful here - the hotel is in a nice location that has a good access to the water, even on low tide. Even though there was a nice view from the restaurant area,... More

We arrived tired and stepped out of the car to the most amazing view....the sun was just going down and the beach which faces to the east just looked fantastic. Unfortunately there was a problem with our rooms - two couples but we were sent along the beach a little to a Beach House, which wasn't quite what we expected... More

The Red Monkey Lodge is for sure the most beautiful, hospitable and friendly place I have ever visited. The view from the beach is like nothing I have ever seen :) The hospitality and kindness of the staff was unbelievable. I would absolutely recommend it to everyone!!

Red monkey lodge has a great view, good location, very helpful staff, beautiful and clean bungalows on the beach, we totally recommend it for vacation on Jambiani beach. The beach itself is phenomenal with the tide, white sand, amazing water!
