Thanda Island

Thanda Island started with a dream to find a small, remote, uninhabited Tropical Island off the coast of East Africa. Today, it is one of the world’s most exclusive island getaways, a paradise for you to enjoy in complete privacy with family and friends. A secluded island with a single luxurious 5-bedroom villa and two traditional bandas (beach chalets) in the Indian Ocean, off the east coast of Tanzania. Situated in your own marine reserve, you can swim with the gentlest giant of the ocean, the whale shark, and watch sea turtles nesting. Here, you can rest, rejuvenate and enjoy adventure sports in a world where shades of turquoise infuse your days and tropical spices your nights.

The Villa offers comfortable living and sleeping areas, with an indoor aquarium, a variety of musical instruments, magnificent wine collection, glass rim-flow swimming pool, air-conditioned gym, library, including an extensive Ernest Hemingway book collection, and a wraparound dining area with its 180-degree view of the ocean. The five en-suite bedrooms are air-conditioned with king-size beds and an idyllic island feel. If required, additional beds for children can be set up in the bedroom suites or library.

If you have additional guests or you would like to experience traditional Tanzanian living during your stay, the beautiful double-storey Bandas offer additional, unique living quarters on the beach. Designed to meet your every comfort while retaining their authentic ocean-cooled island feel, you can spend the day here relaxing and dining, guests can sleep here, or you and your family can sleep over if you choose. Thanda Island is your exclusive home-away-from-home – every part of it is yours to enjoy and do as you feel.
