Indulge in the ultimate luxury stay in the midst of some of Tanzania’s most breath-taking scenery on Thanda Island.
With just one private villa and two traditional Tanzanian bandas on the island, you’re guaranteed ultimate seclusion, privacy and exclusivity.
The island is set on its own private marine reserve, so guests have the chance to spot some amazing wildlife, such as watching whale sharks or encountering turtles nesting and hatching eggs on the beach. Massage specialists are available for the ultimate in relaxation, or more active guests can take part in a variety of watersports, including kayaking, jet-skiing, wakeboarding and snorkelling.
The island’s executive chef will prepare a menu tailored to your exacting requirements and preferences, made from local and fresh ingredients. There are a number of dining experiences to be had on the island, including pizza-making, Arabian Nights and a Swahili Feast. There is also a huge array of experiences to be had here, and there’s truly something for every guest – from island adventures to watersports, spa relaxation and foodie experiences.
The villa is an enclave of pure luxury that blends perfectly into the marine environment. As well as providing the ultimate relaxing space, there’s plenty to do inside – from an indoor aquarium and Steinway grand piano to the glass swimming pool and an extensive wine collection.
A particular highlight is the wrap-around dining area, which offers incredible 180-degree views. Accommodation is luxurious, with five spacious bedrooms inside the villa as well as two traditional Bandas, which each provide a king-size bedroom and a twin bedroom. For bigger groups and families, additional beds can be set up.
Five suites, two Bandas. The island offers nine bedrooms in all – each Banda offers a king-size and a twin bedroom, while the villa’s five suites each offer king-size beds. Additional beds can be set up for families, and if necessary a suite inside the Bandas can be divided into two bedrooms.
