We stayed here for 2 weeks, and yes; it is as beautiful as the photos. If you don't like interacting with the locals then this isn't the place for you! The villagers pass through on the way to the beach and there is always a smile and a jambo.In the evening the beach is often the site of a football...

We found this place completely by chance and were so happy we did! Amazing food, views, friendly owner, super affordable. We were there on a getaway from Arusha and it was great to just hang out on the beach and be lazy. Can't wait to go back!

We stayed 9 nights at Red Monkey. Loved it. We had a tripple room, we were 2 adults and two small children. The double bed is huge, the single is for a small adult or children. Fitted us perfect. Breakfast was included and this was fresh fruits, pastries, eggs and very good coffee. The monkeys do run around the lodge,...

I stayed for one night and it was amazing, will definitely book again to stay a little bit longer. If you want a simple but great place to unwind and just be lazy, this is the place to be. Owner was super friendly, always checked on us if everything was ok and all the time there was nothing I could...

We had an amazing night at Red Monkey. The food was excellent and the staff were so helpful. I wish we could have spent more time there! The location is absolutely incredible. I will most certainly be returning here on my next visit to Zanzibar.

I just wish we had more time to spend here, stunning location, gorgeous venue with really friendly management and staff. They catered for our large group brilliantly. The food, drink, service and entertainment is amongst the best on Zanzibar - I will be back there in 2015 on my next visit. Highly recommended.

Red Monkey is a very nice lodge with a rather familiar touch and well inegrated into the local life. It allows you to have a relaxing time at the beach in a rather less touristic athmosphere and close to the local people. The rooms are simple but charming and very clean (they are nicely decorated every day with fresh flowers)....

Red Monkey Lodge is the perfect place in the south east Zanzibar, for all travellers. Food is outstanding, prices good and the local people are very friendly. The rooms are clean and have good space. Wifi works good!

We stayed at Red Monkey Lodge expecting quality and value because of all the glowing reviews on trip advisor, unfortunately we weren't overly impressed with what we received. The rooms were basic and the food could be quite poor (mouldy bread and egg shells in the baked goods were common). The location is ideal for kiting but we wouldn't stay...
