NOT NECESSARILY FOR ALL

Pemba is a remote island off the east coast of Africa, and probably as far away from civilisation you might ever find yourselves.
The Manta Resort offers something different from most tropical islands — it’s not about five-star luxury.
If it’s serenity, close encounters with nature and a family of staff you crave, The Manta Resort is the place for you.
Switch off the noisy, polluted electronic world and enter a completely different one, not as a tourist,
but as a guest with simple needs: sunshine, fresh air, natural food, a comfortable bed and friendly company.

VISIT THE 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!
