Thanda Island one of the world’s most exotic Island getaways which evolved as a dream to find a remote and uninhabited Tropical Island in East Africa coast. Featuring one luxurious private villa and two traditional bandas (beach chalets) facing the Indian Ocean, it is very secluded and enjoys prime location with fantastic views of the private marine park where guests have a rare opportunity to watch sea turtle nesting and swim with whale sharks. Apart from swimming, guests can dive in the marine reserve park, indulge in Arabian and Swahili feasts, get a massage, or soak in a copper bath on the beach, to mention but a few. Situated 30km east of Tanzania mainland, Thanda Island is accessed through helicopter transfer from Dar es Salaam International Airport directly to the Island or through charter plane to Mafia Island from where you can reach the Island by boat.
Fantastic staff, amazing food and memories for life. Thanda Island offers a “once in a lifetime experience” every day. Can’t wait to come back. Highly recommended.
Absolutely the most amazing place on earth. This is where magic happens. Great food, highest quality on the rooms, and extremely friendly staff. Everything packed on this paradise island where you can choose if you just want to relax or activate yourself with for example tennis, yoga, different watersports and swimming with whale sharks.
Beautiful island with excellent food and friendly staff! Many activities for example yoga with Sandra and whaleshark adventure. Magic!
