Thanda Island


Some 16 miles off the coast of Tanzania lies Thanda Island; an exclusive private island idyll in the midst of the sparkling Indian Ocean.

A single luxury villa here provides the main accommodation and features five en suite bedrooms, ample indoor and outdoor living space and an expansive pool. Have additional guests or want to experience a more authentically Tanzanian living style? Two open air Bandas are located on the beachfront. These two-storey beach chalets are set on stilts, constructed with natural materials and cooled by the ocean breeze. Stay here for you whole holiday or have a sleepover or two; the island is yours to use as you want.

Just over one kilometre in circumference, Thanda Island is ripe for exploring, while snorkelling in the surrounding private marine reserve is an absolute must.  Head out in a kayak or canoe to encounter sea turtles, coral reefs and tropical fish; you’ll have a dedicated boatman to assist with aquatic exploration throughout your stay.

During the European winters months guests may also enjoy use of a traditional Hemmingway style cruise vessel for a supplement, which sleeps eight in comfort and style should you wish to explore further.

With a full complement of staff attending to your needs, you can do as much or as little as you like here. Let the chefs cook up a Swahili feast or assist you in making your own wood-fired pizzas. Stretch out and enjoy a spa treatment or play tennis on the pristine court. On Thanda Island all of your holiday wishes will come true.
