Privacy in a peerless tropical paradise

Just off the coast of Tanzania, with palm-fringed, powder-white sands and glistening turquoise waters; Fanjove Island has remained as nature intended – untouched and pristine – an ocean oasis, secluded and exclusive, a place where time stands still, and worries drift away.

Evoke thoughts of historical discovery and embark on an expedition, on foot or kayak, and uncover the wonders of this unadulterated paradise. Build up an appetite on sandbank excursions – swimming and dolphin-spotting whilst an exquisite lunch of grilled fish is privately prepared. With an intact coral reef spanning for miles, warm waters, brightly coloured fish and stunning marine landscapes; Fanjove presents an abundance of exceptional diving and snorkelling opportunities. Cease the day and sail at sunset on a wooden Dhow – a traditional East African sailing vessel – and experience its timeless grace as you savour a refreshing sundowner.

Savour starlit skies, undisturbed surroundings and appetising fusion cuisine at the open-air restaurant and lounge before calling it a night. Blending harmoniously with the environment, six discrete, private bandas are set along Fanjove’s sandy shores. Simple, stylish, comfortable, and completely unpretentious; the whole property has been designed to minimize its environmental footprint. Resembling a Dhow sail, the solar powered rooms are naturally beautiful – created from traditional, raw materials including sustainable wood, mukuti (palm leaves) and thatch – each open at its front to capitalise on the endless ocean views. With a whole island to yourself; relish pure tranquillity in a peerless tropical paradise.
