Monkey Island Estate

About

Situated on a picturesque private island on the River Thames in the historic village of Bray, Monkey Island Estate opened in 2019 after major renovation by YTL Hotels and the award-winning Champalimaud Design.

41 beautifully appointed guest rooms and suites reflect a contemporary, English country house feel. Each room is equipped with luxurious amenities, including complimentary Wi-Fi. Moored on the banks of the fish-tail shaped Monkey Island, a unique floating spa offers a range of exclusive spa treatments.

Dining at Monkey Island Estate will always delight. The cuisine is a delectable modern take on British classics, with produce freshly sourced from the gardens and surrounding countryside. The Monkey Island Brasserie is the perfect setting for a long lunch or an exquisite dinner. The Monkey Bar serves delicious light bites from the all-day bar menu, quintessentially English Afternoon Tea and a selection of bespoke cocktails, fine Champagnes and wines from the cellar.

Marvel at the monkey inspired, 17th-century frescos which adorn the ceilings of the Grade I listed Monkey Room, whilst a secret staircase leads to an intimate Whisky Snug which provides a perfect finale to a grand evening.

Set across seven acres, Monkey Island Estate provides a memorable location whatever the purpose of your visit. Accessed only by footbridge, boat or helicopter and surrounded by elegant gardens, Monkey Island Estate is reminiscent of a secluded paradise, yet is only 10 minutes from Windsor, less than an hour’s drive from Central London and only 25 minutes by car from Heathrow Airport.
