YTL Hotels’ Monkey Island Estate, Bray-on-Thames, to open Spring 2018

In Spring 2018, YTL Hotels‘ newest UK property, Monkey Island Estate, will open in the historic village of Bray-on-Thames, Berkshire.

With an intriguing history dating back 800 years, Monkey Island Estate has been the haunt of monarchs, aristocrats and artists, along with writers, famous performers and Berkshire locals.

Following YTL Hotels’ superb renovation, visitors from London and beyond will yet again have their very own private countryside escape to enjoy. The striking white bricked Pavilion and Temple buildings will now make up the main hotel areas of YTL HotelsMonkey Island Estate, surrounded by picturesque views of the River Thames and beautifully manicured gardens



Monkey Island has constantly reflected the mood of the time, from medieval religious power, serene Georgian privilege or restrained Edwardian leisure – even the joyous freewheeling 1960s.

Alongside its unique early 18th century fishing retreats built by the Duke of Marlborough with its famous monkey artworks, Monkey Island has been immortalized in one of the great works of early 20th century literature, published its own journal and, for the last 180 years, provided some of Britain’s most unique hospitality.



Set across seven acres, the restored Monkey Island Estate will consist of 27 bedrooms and three deluxe suites, all designed by the award-winning New York-based Champalimaud Design, who orchestrated distinctive interior design projects for YTL Hotels’ first British property, The Gainsborough Bath Spa.

The furnishings of Monkey Island will juxtapose timeless glamour and traditional features with a modern, relaxed countryside style, creating a unique blend of past and present.



Monkey Island will be the perfect retreat for those wanting to take a foodie pilgrimage to the culinary excellence of Bray.

The only village in the world that lays claim to two three Michelin-starred restaurants, including Heston Blumenthal’s The Fat Duck and The Waterside Inn by Alain Roux, Bray has long been a destination for gastronomic-enthusiasts. Monkey Island will also be making its own mark on the area with their relaxed Monkey Island Brasserie serving up modern British cuisine.

For those who want to enjoy Bray-on-Thames in comfort and style, Monkey Island will be the ideal retreat to experience the rejuvenation of this historic landmark to its full former glory.
