Stayed at the Red Monkey Lodge in Jambiani. AWESOME is the only way to describe it. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Great hospitality, meals and entertainment. Amazing views. If you're looking for total relaxation in an amazing serene setting, RML is the place to be. You will have no regrets.

the staff and the cool small island vibe is the best thing about this place. Zanzibar can get really touristy at times and it's a great lil' hide away that gives you everything you want - surfing, relaxation and cultural vibes under one roof.

I've stayed at Red Monkey Lodge at least 5 times, usually for at least a week at a time. I chose it for much needed relaxation and found just what I needed. The staff is really lovely and helpful, and it's easy to order an extra large "Kubwa" pasta when I'm starving after a long run along the pristine beaches.... More

The place, the beach, the room, the bar, the 'crazy monday' entertainment, the smiles of the staff, the magical night air - transported me. I wanted to stay and forget to go back. That mix of resort and local - just everything you could expect and more from the perfect island holiday experience.

The super friendly admosphere was a great start to the holiday, the staff were lovely and very helpful, the location is amazing, and the beach is beautiful. The rooms were simple but nice and the outside dhow bar is a glorious place to lounge. Very comfortable beds.

Red Monkey is a great place to have a relaxing few days by the sea integrated with an African village. Great sailing and snorkelling in a traditional dhow, early morning fishing trip, great Crazy Monday evening with a high standard of music. Food is good but more variety at the next lodge just along the beach. If they are full... More

We spent 5 nights here 'recovering' after climbing kilimanjaro. It was a lovely spot and the hotel was very comfortable. We had 3 rooms as a family, initially one of these was quite small and very stuffy, but this was quickly changed to a much larger, airier room which was much more comfortable. You literally fall out onto the beach.... More
