Once we settled in on the wooden deck out the front of Monkey Biziness we wanted to stay all day, listening to great music, sipping delicious shakes (the oreo mocha is a MUST try!) and chatting to the lovely staff. I bought a beautiful pair of locally made earrings there which I'm in love with! This cafe has a really unique vibe, fantastic food and a cool and relaxed atmosphere. Its truly a one of a kind in Lanta!

When visiting I had the pleasure of sampling the Oreo shake. It was by far the best shake on the island with pleasant staff and chilled/relaxed music it's truly a unique atmosphere.

Gorgeous little cafe with shakes to die for. The set up is relaxing and friendly with plenty of original, quality good to browse through whilst waiting for your order. Super helpful hostess, even when she is flat out making drinks for other customers. Best coffee Oreo Shake I've ever had!

When you want a unique experience, whether it's their Oreo milkshakes, sumptuous food, stylish wears, kiwi music, or "hostess with the mostess"....this is the place to visit. Blending the best kiwi beach bach traditions with the best of Thailand beach shacks.

We rode past Moneky Bizness a few times because we had read the good reviews, but their sporadic opening hours made it possible to visit their store only the fourth time around. Some lovely handmade products but the lady behind the counter couldn't be bothered to acknowledge our presence, or look up from her phone to answer our query on prices. Not impressed. There are better stores in town that will value your business.

Thank you for the review. Our monkeys apologize for the terrible service & irregular opening hours over the start of April. The owners of the Biz were organizing their island wedding & had their heads in other places. Please accept a big wet Monkey Kiss!
Thanks a banana bunch for the review. From the newlyweds at the Biz
