I stayed here for my kite holiday through kiteworldwide. Was very happy overall with the service and room. The place is quaint but always has something going on. For. Crazy party Monday's to video nights. I enjoy the people and the atmosphere. The beach itself is not the typical white sand that you may expect. Lots of sea grass and...

The location direct at the beach and the openness to the local community makes this lodge very unique in a positive way. You don't fell isolated you fell as a part of it. The staff is super friendly and the cook is doing wonders with the local ingredients he got. The theme of the lodge "barefoot and lazy" is representing...

We just had a one night stay, but we enjoyed the relax barefoot mentality. From bar and restaurant, you are overlooking the ocean. We had a spacious, clean room. Good diner, good breakfast. Friendly staff.

Red Monkey Lodge is a smaller lodge just by the beach with a very familiar and cool atmosphere. This is our second stay at Red Monkey and we are just as happy this time as last time. The lodge has a small restaurant with really nice food (I think the chef really like his job, because the food is cooked...

I stayed at Red Monkey Lodge for 5 nights with a friend. The locations is great, directly by the beach, and the staff is really friendly. The rooms are good size, but they could be cleaner, specially sheets and towels. On our 2nd day there, we had a very bad smell in the room, like gasoline. We complained to the...

Great place to relax and forget about everything else. Very nice and competent staff, very clean rooms. Very relaxing place - and yet enough activities available. Either organized by he hotel or the kit surf school right next to the lodge. Rooms are decorated locally and are about 5 meters from the ocean (at high tide).

Amazingly beautiful location! Well maintained rooms, very clean and authentic. The personnel was very friendly and helpful. The view from the terrace is breathtaking, especially when you have an early breakfast and the monkeys are watching you from the trees. Another thing what I liked is that they mostly use local products, and also are aware not to spill food...

We spent 2 weeks in the red monkey lodge and are generally spoken very happy with it. There are 12 familiar, nice and clean bungalows. The staff is incredibly friendly and makes this place very special. Also the food was always fresh and very tasty. They offer a broad variaty of menus for lunch and dinner using mainly local ingredients....

Everything perfect during our 12 days in August. Family rooms for 4 has a great view and comfortable beds. The breakfast is always a pleasure. But what make this place different is the local people working in the lodge or visiting the beach during the day (the village of Jambiani is just behind you). They are special.
