Brilliant night at the Red Monkey Lodge. Very cute inside with a lot of character. It was a jam night when we went so local artists performed and the crowd was a very friendly interesting mix of people enjoying the atmosphere. You would never expect this place when you approach from outside but definitely worth the visit!

I was here in June, the weather was warm but not sticky as there was plenty of wind, the beach was sumptuous. Staying for five days, I enjoyed the sanctuary the rooms provided, with their clean and tranquil ambiance, I recommend the upstairs quarters as you get gorgeous views. It's very quite and homey at Red Monkey, though its a...

The restaurant was cool &...

The lodges motto pretty much sums it up. Barefoot is the fashion - sand everywhere so nice to walk around sans shoes. Lazy... well unless you're a die hard kitesurfer there's not much to do at the place. Meals are good, but be aware that although we were informed so, the do NOT accept credit cards so bring much cash.

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.
