          My husband and I spent a week at Shambani and were not disappointed - a short walk from the beach, it offered simple but comfortable accommodation at a very reasonable price. The only trouble was the brazen monkeys! We would definitely come back again.

          I stayed in one of Shambani's 1-room air-conditioned cottages, with additional beds in an open-air second floor. It was the perfect week - staff were helpful and friendly, the cottage and pool comfortable, and the overall atmosphere extremely relaxing. I would highly recommend!
