When in Jambiani, pay a visit to this place. Or if you are into kiteing this is your place. A friendly, welcoming location in south of Zanzibar, right on the beach. Te menu is changing every day, you can choose from 3-5 dishes, the coffee is good, the wifi is working, the prices are fair. The atmosphere is a cool... More

What a blessing this place is! The food is delicious, the rooms spacious (at least the one we were in), the beach beautiful and the owners very helpful and friendly! We love Zanzibar for it's authentic afro/arabic vibe and culture and it's a must to see, if you're in that part of the world. My husband and I have been... More

We visited Jambiani earlier this month looking for a nice relaxing beach holiday. The area definitely delivers; its stunning. Red Monkey Lodge itself is in a little cove walking distance from Coral Rock Hotel, but worlds apart on service. We didn't stay there but ate there twice. Both times the food was delicious and promptly arrived within 15mins (this was... More

The place is in the middle of a small village in front of the beach. They have jam sessions with local musicians and the place is full of people from everywhere. Nice to chill out with friends. Almost everyone without shoes relaxing and dancing.

The Red Monkey is a lovely beach front property in Jambiani..and it is exactly as they describe it on their website..Barefoot and Lazy..we were there for 4 nights and 5 days in June and it was a spectacular experience. The food was awesome. Angelo is a great host and makes great conversation. There are monkeys all over the property. Don't... More

If we had to go back to Jambiani, we would probably stay at the Red Monkey Lodge again. We stayed for 2 nights in room n6 which is very close to the bar, however it wasn't a problem for us as we enjoyed being only 2 meters from the beach and having wifi access from our little balcony. The room... More

The Red Monkey Lodge really deliver on it's Barefoot and Lazy philosophy so was the perfect place to spend a few days relaxing at the end of a hectic of Kenya and Tanzania. We chose Jambiani as it sounded like it was a little off the beaten tourist track and the lodge really was about as far away from a... More
