Thanda Island is an astounding paradise immersed in the unearthly natural splendor of the Indian Ocean. A gorgeous main Villa encapsulates beach home romanticism, colonial prestige, and East African panache. Island owners Christin and Dan Olofsson of Sweden curated each detail of this charming residence, utterly perfected in the art of laidback luxury. Sumptuous, serene, and totally discrete, Thanda is the purest expression of the tropical island fantasy.
Lauded as one of the world's most exclusive Island getaways, this remote speck between mainland Tanzania and Mafia Island offers crystalline waters, lush tropical jungles, endless powdery white beaches, and secluded sandbars. Nine sumptuous bedrooms accommodate nineteen guests in utmost comfort, discretion, and elegance between the primary residence and two traditional Tanzanian Bandas. A focal plantation-style estate brims with nautical charm. Serene whitewashed interiors, vaulted exposed beams, and foldable French doors inundate gorgeous free-form family spaces in lustrous sunlight. Charming turquoise and azure decor elements find expression through floral upholstery and chic seaswept decor. Warm wicker accents impart a maritime romanticism to the inviting spaces. High-pitched ceilings abound throughout the residence, flaunting an unparalleled sense of airiness and verticality. The Olofssons have included personal touches such as romantic copper beach baths, dreamy alfresco spaces, and a cocktail bar and pizza oven.
Thanda's supernatural beauty has been known to ease guests into the rejuvenating pace of Island living, offering unfettered freedom to revel in the glories of sun, sand, and water. Belonging to a pristine ecosystem, Thanda Island imagines world-class luxury in tandem with the elements. Belonging to an unspoiled marine reserve, guests may indulge in the tepid ocean waters with the gentle whale shark and wild turtles in view.
