Rebalance in the midst of a beach paradise
Let the tranquil surrounds of Thanda Island envelope you in total serenity, with a selection of spots where you can feel totally at one with this unspoilt paradise.
There is no better place to refocus the mind than on a private island retreat. Thanda’s dedicated staff know this, and are committed to ensuring their guests leave the island with a newfound sense of inner peace.
Dotted around the island, cabanas stretch out invitingly, offering a secluded spot to lie back and be mesmerised by the views over the water. Escape the sun in the shade of the canopy, and take a moment to savour the beauty of Thanda Island. Watch traditional Arab dhows float past on the horizon, and stars light up the sky come nightfall.
Reiki masters are on hand to perform ancient energy-healing rituals designed to instill a sense of wellness and rejuvenation and yoga classes are held at numerous locations around the island. Both are coupled with meditative sessions that allow you to reconnect the mind and body, and feel in harmony with the nature around you.
For a truly memorable experience, guests can indulge in a copper bath on the beach. Staff will infuse the water with essential oils, and sprinkle it with fresh flowers. Listen to the soothing sound of the tide gently lapping the shore, and watch the water mirror the setting sun above, transforming the bathwater into shades of peach and pink.
