The Villa.

THANDA ISLAND ACCOMMODATION

Thanda Island’s luxury accommodation will provide you with the greatest experience possible. For those that require something more than the traditional bandas bungalows, we offer a luxury island villa, respectively called The Villa, which has relaxed living and sleeping areas as well as everything you’d expect from an extraordinary beach house, such as an indoor aquarium, a variety of musical instruments, a magnificent wine collection, a glass rim-flow swimming pool, an air-conditioned gym, a library with an extensive Ernest Hemingway book collection, and a wraparound dining area with a 180-degree view of the ocean. The five on-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 bedroom suites or the library.

Tanzanian Bandas.

THANDA ISLAND ACCOMMODATION

If you would like to experience traditional Tanzanian life during your stay on Thanda Island, or you need extra accommodation in addition to the five sumptuous suites in the Villa, just up the beach you have free run of not just one double-story luxury beach bungalow, but two, or ‘bandas’ as they are called in Tanzania, for your exclusive use.

Our private island bungalow accommodation is a different take on unique luxury accommodations. Each of the two is every bit a luxury bungalow house, designed to exquisite standards, and offering all the comforts and services that define the Thanda way. During your stay, you can come and go as you please from your bungalows, which are situated next to each other, right on the beach. They are fully air-conditioned, with two king-size beds and en-suite bathrooms in each, and are equipped to suit your every need, while offering distinctive island style and atmosphere.

Beautiful, locally hand-carved furniture and fabrics from Mafia Island in soft, natural colours enhance the authentic feel. With an ocean-cooled, open-living design, you can spend the day in your luxury beach bungalow, relaxing and dining, or you can sleep over if you choose. Every part of Thanda Island is yours to enjoy, explore and restore in complete safety and privacy. The moment you arrive, the island instantly becomes your Indian Ocean home. This storied place is inspired by the tradition of iconic properties where generations of families and friends reconnect and spend precious time together. It is part of the African dream of the Olofsson family from Sweden who styled Thanda Island to offer everything they would want on a private island, including luxury beach bungalows.

Together with Thanda Island’s select team, the Olofssons are the dedicated custodians of this sanctuary. The island is situated in its own marine protected reserve – the largest in the Indian Ocean where you can bathe in blue heaven and enjoy some of the most spectacular snorkelling and diving off the East African Coast. Here you can swim with the gentle whale shark, experience sea turtles and a showstopping variety of tropical fish. Ride the trade winds in a traditional Arab dhow; go big game fishing, play island tennis and relax in Thanda luxury with delectable island cuisine, luxurious living and attention to detail. No city lights, no traffic, no noise, just a few people surrounded by marine wilderness and wildlife.
