WELCOME TO MONKEY ISLAND ESTATE
a private island on the thames

Monkey Island Estate lies on a picturesque island in the River Thames in the historic village of Bray, Berkshire. The island has a rich history centuries old, and has been the haunt of monarchs, aristocrats and artists, along with writers, famous performers and Berkshire locals and now is home to one of the finest hotels in Bray.

The two grade I listed heritage pavilions which form the property were originally commissioned as a fishing retreat in 1723 by the third Duke of Marlborough. These have been completely restored and renovated, with beautifully landscaped gardens and picturesque views of the River Thames. Set across seven acres, Monkey Island Estate features 27 exquisite guestrooms and three sumptuous suites, designed by the award-winning New York-based Champalimaud Design.

The furnishings juxtapose timeless glamour and traditional features with a modern, countryside style, creating a unique blend of past and present. It's the perfect base from which to explore the area or just immerse yourself in history against the backdrop of the delightful village of Bray.

Opening on 14th February 2019 after a major renovation by YTL Hotels and the award-winning Champalimaud Design.
