Day 1: Arrive Pemba Island

Arrive on Pemba Island and transfer to the picturesque grounds of The Manta Resort. Settle in for relaxing evening on this remote, unspoiled island paradise. 

Day 2-3: Explore Pemba Island

  • Hotel
  • 2 Breakfasts, 2 Lunches, 2 Dinners
Arise at your leisure this morning to the sound of the Indian Ocean, making your way to the dining lounge for an appetizing breakfast prepared by the local chef. The next few days are yours to do as you please - choose to relax on the beach with a good book, kayak along the colorful coral reefs, or explore the charming villages. Many travelers will choose to book one of Manta's exciting tours locally, such as deep-sea fishing, scuba diving or watching the sunset at sea. Whether relaxing or exploring, you will soon find yourself detached from the outside world, quickly falling into rhythm of Pemba Island. 

Your second night at Manta Resort is spent in the Underwater Room, encapsulated within a turquoise blue bubble, watching shoals of reef fish swim by - sometimes in three or four layers of different species. Enjoy complete privacy and solitude from your private three-story floating suite, catching some sun on the top lounge deck before heading down to your room beneath the sea. 

Day 4: Departure

  • 1 Breakfast
Say goodbye to the friendly staff at Manta Resort and transfer back to Pemba Airport for your return flight home.
