Thanda Island

At Thanda Island, slick Swedish design meets desert island chic. It’s a private island off the Tanzanian coast, lapped by an Indian Ocean teeming with whale sharks and sea turtles. 

Inside the exclusive-use villa, elegance is at every turn. The indoor aquarium, cigar humidor and wraparound dining area add a touch of grandeur. While the pizza oven, bbq and outdoor cocktail bar keep it real. 

To get there it’s a short flight from Dar to Mafia, followed by a boat crossing. But nothing beats arriving by helicopter direct from Dar.
