Thanda Island - Luxury Private Island

Thanda Island is one of the world’s most exclusive island getaways, a paradise for you to enjoy in complete privacy with family and friends.

It has been voted the World's Leading Exclusive Private Island by the 2016 World Travel Awards.

It has taken us ten years to discover and develop this remarkably uncommon destination as a very special, totally private island getaway that we now invite you to experience. Thanda Island is a tropical island with a single luxurious villa and two rustic Tanzanian Bandas in the Indian Ocean, off the east coast of Tanzania.

Situated in its own marine reserve, you can bathe in blue heaven with the gentlest giant of the ocean, the whale shark, and watch sea turtles nesting. Here, you can rest, rejuvenate, enjoy adventure sports and explore your pristine playground, where shades of turquoise infuse your days and tropical spices your nights.
