We came during the off season and had the place to ourselves. The hotel is located right on the beach with incredible views, secluded and relaxed. The rooms are rustic, simple and clean. The food is fresh and local. The staff are friendly and respectful. We spent our days relaxing on the beach, reading books lounging in the hammocks, or swimming in the crystal clear ocean. They have a cool little library with books donated by travelers. Every morning we would enjoy a breakfast of eggs, fresh fruit and coffee while watching the monkeys play in the trees. At night we would sleep with the sound of the ocean right outside. One day we got massages from a local woman. It was one of the most relaxing, enjoyable, incredible weeks of our lives.

Red Monkey Lodge feels like a home away from home. The staff are interactive and informative. They have established respectful relationships with local community tour operators for snorkeling and village exposure experiences. The lodge itself is beautifully situated at the end of the Jambiani stretch, allowing one to escape the masses yet dip into the beach scene when one feels like it. Rooms are simple, restful and well maintained. Delicious plentiful breakfasts - the pancakes are to die for. All in all, a wonderful stay, and I would definitely go again!

Great host, staff, food, clean and great atmosphere every evening. I was lucky to be there for the Crazy Monday night Jam Session! Will gladly visit again and stay an extra 2 -4 days.... Thank you Mark and Kristine, Abdul too...who was always there at the crack of Dawn and the last to leave cleaning up, tidying up, making sure I got my orders...mostly Coconut water fresh from the Coconut....

What to say about Red Monkey - everything from the insanely beautiful beachfront location, to the delicious food, huge bedrooms and cute chill out area is just about perfect. The best bit of red monkey though is the staff that work there and the vibes they help create. We had one of the most fun weeks of our life at Red monkey and will never forget it. Thank you to Kristine, Mark and all the team. I cannot recommend this place highly enough.

I have been to Zanzibar many times and often find the lack of community engagement by most ivory tower tourist establishments as borderline immoral, but not the Red Monkey! Mark and Kristine + team have managed to build something of a gem in a quiet alcove of Jambiani beach, open to tourists and the community alike, with a world famous jam session on Monday nights and an excellent daily menu. I couldn't have asked for a better long weekend by the sea, with friends old and new.
