Located off the coast of Tanzania in the Zanzibar Archipelago, Thanda Island is a luxurious and breathtakingly beautiful private island hideaway. Fly in by helicopter directly onto the island, where a team of staff - including private butlers, a boat crew, dive instructor, chef and even your very own cocktail mixologist – will be waiting to take care of your every need.

A member of Luxury Hotels of the World, Thanda Island is synonymous with paradise and can accommodate fourteen adults and up to thirteen children across the five-bedroom villa and the two traditional Tanzanian bandas. For dining, expect breakfast on the beach, picnics on a sandbar, or a banquet under the stars; nothing is too much trouble for the Thanda culinary team, who serve locally-sourced and homemade cuisine. The island is also packed with amenities to keep you busy - including a large gym, an indoor aquarium, beachfront copper bath tubs, a floodlit tennis court, jet skis, sea kayaks and access to the deep-sea fishing boat. Further activities include excursions to Chole Island, diving the reefs off Mafia Island and swimming with whale sharks as they pass by Thanda Island on their annual migration path.
