Thanda Is­land,

The Week Middle East - - Travel -

Some 16 nau­ti­cal miles off the coast of Tan­za­nia, Thanda Is­land was bought by Swedish in­vestors the Olof­s­son fam­ily ten years ago to com­ple­ment their South African Thanda Sa­fari lodge. Now it’s a lux­u­ri­ous In­dian Ocean re­treat, says Condé Nast Trav­eller, with a “sprawl­ing” villa and two open­sided beach “ban­das” (chalets) that make ideal hang­outs for teenagers. The main house has five bed­rooms, with four-poster beds. There’s a ten­nis court and a boat house crammed with kit in­clud­ing jet skis; and other ac­tiv­i­ties – div­ing, kite-surf­ing, yoga – are eas­ily ar­ranged. The chefs spe­cialise in spec­tac­u­lar seafood and Swahili-style “feasts”. From £7,800 per night for up to ten peo­ple. +27 71 611 5348, www.thandais­land.com.
