We offer something different from most tropical islands and it’s not about traditional five-star luxury. If it’s serenity, close encounters with nature and a family of staff you crave, then the Manta Resort is the place for you.
The Manta Resort
THE NUMBER ONE HOTEL ON PEMBA ISLAND
VISIT THE ONE AND ONLY UNDERWATER ROOM
There is a remarkable feeling to go to bed while the fish are surrounding and watching you carefully. You are in an aquarium – for fish to be beholders of man. More!
What the press says about us
"Underwater hotel room opens on remote African island.”
“Africa Gets First Underwater Hotel. Divers, snorklers and Steve Zissou-types can immerse themselves in the unspoiled waters of a remote African island in an entirely new way, thanks to a Swedish design team.”
“Underwater hotel room opens off the coast of Zanzibar. Holidaymakers can now spend nights sleeping beneath the surface of the ocean at this partially submerged hotel suite in the Zanzibar archipelago.”
Meet Iddi, one of our team of service fundis, and one member of the close knit that makes up the Manta Family. He might very well be the one taking care of you while you are here. Iddi is Pemba. Get to know him and he'll tell you everything about Pemba, his village, his wife and the life on the island. And he'll do anything in his power to make your stay a memorable one. Meet Iddi in this documentary.
Elevated and crafted along an idyllic island beach, The Manta Resort offers privacy, romance, adventure and water sports on East Africa’s finest island sanctuary. See the list of our excursions and things to do while you’re here.
The diving around Pemba Island, Zanzibar is nothing else but breathtaking. The untouched coral reefs surrounding the entire island make Pemba one of the top dive sites in the world. Show me more diving.
