Simple, functional, tastefully decorated and designed room. The furniture consists of a king size double bed with a large mosquito netting that covers also the bedside table, fan control and light switches.

The bed is ‘reading friendly’ as two reading lights can be reached from the bed within the mosquito net. A small desk with a chair, the ceiling fan (over the bed, inside the mosquito net), an open drawer (in tropical areas closed cupboards will result in mould), some hooks, and a dhow picture frame with original artwork by east african artists or canvas printed images by the best of Zanzibar’s photographers.

The bathroom is equipped with a toilet, a hot water shower, a stone sink, a shelf and a mirror. The room is entirely made with local techniques and materials (mainly white cement and precious hardwood such as teak and mahogany recycled from old fishing boats). You are supplied with bottled drinking waters in the room free of charge.

The lodge is located right on the stuning Mfumbwi beach in Jambiani on the south east coast of Zanzibar. Jambiani is a small fishing village with a long white sandy beach and many palmtrees. It can be reached from the capital stone town through a tarmac road in a one hour drive.

Kizimkazi (dolphin watching) and Paje are a 10/15 minute drive away and jozani forest or chwaka bay can be reached in about 25 minutes.

Completely restructured in the autumn of 2010, the lodge is positioned right on the sandy beach next to a small tropical forest, home to the red colour monkeys lending their name to the lodge. In front is a 2 km long sandbank that stretches out from the beach into the water. About 2 km from the shore is a barrier reef.

The setup consists of seven one-storey bungalows, with a total of nine rooms, with traditional Makuti roofing. The pathways between the small tropical garden are covered with sand, allowing our guests to live a real barefoot experience. The garden has plants such as aloe vera, lemongrass, papaya, banana and palm trees.

There restaurant and a bar have great sea views.The restaurant offers a daily changing choice of two 4 course table d’hote menues based on locally sourced ingredients, the speciality being seafood – that you will find listed on the blackboard in the restaurant. In addition to our daily table d’hote menu, snacks, light lunches and specials dinner treats such as mouthwatering shellfish platters with grilled lobsters are offered.
