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 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

Red Monkey Lodge absolutely exceeded our expectations. Looking for a short escape and place to relax, we found in Red Monkey Lodge the perfect spot for an holiday that we'll never forget. Super friendly staff, well-integrated with the village, full-immersion with nature, amazing food, incredible view on the ocean, far away from the crowd and lovely cute monkeys entertaining your...

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

We (2 girls) visited Zanzibar recently for a short escape from our daily lives in Abu Dhabi. We started with one night in Stone Town and then moved on to Jambiani for three nights. The Red Monkey Lodge is such a beautiful and unique place. From the moment you arrive you will start to relax and settle into the chilled... More

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
