Many of us find it difficult to relax, but the beauty of Thanda Island is that it relaxes you. You’ll find yourself spontaneously relaxing while you restore your vital force in a serene but adventure-filled environment where time dissolves. At Thanda we invite you to enjoy simple, exquisite pleasures… strolling along your own private 1,1km beach or exploring the 8ha Island where the only sign of human habitation is the occasional, traditional fishing dhow in the distance.
In the early mornings or when it isn’t too hot, you might want to have a game of tennis or volleyball on our 16 x 35m artificial lawn court. It has white lines for tennis and yellow lines for volleyball. Constructed especially for your enjoyment on Thanda Island, it has nightlights for those who would like to play after dark. Thanda is fully equipped with rackets, balls and even partners and opponents if you need them. Alongside the tennis court is the gazebo where friends and family can cheer on the match, while having tea or cocktails.
The Thanda Villa Gym:
At Thanda we know that many of you enjoy your regular exercise and gym routine. We have created your own Thanda Villa Gym for all types of training. From running machines and bicycle machines to weight training and boxing equipment. Irrespective of your fitness level, we have all sorts of options especially for you.
An interesting activity is the Thanda Island Egret Walk. You head through the bush behind the Villa and onto a white sand trail to visit the white, grey and black Egrets that inhabit the Island. Thanda Island is an ideal home for them. With excellent fish they manage to hatch a great number of their delicate baby-blue eggs. At different times of the year you can watch them interacting with each other and their young.
