Travelers searching for a remote, off-the-beaten path beach destination should look no further than Manta Resort on Zanzibar's Pemba Island. Just a short hour flight from Stone Town, Pemba Island feels a world away. The island is characterized by its endless white sand beaches, small communities, close encounters with nature and its unabiding serenity. Manta Resort does not promote luxury in the traditional sense, but rather offers travelers the opportunity to unplug and truly connect with Pemba's friendly people and incredible natural landscape. 

Manta Resort is a treasured hideaway nestled within a lush garden overlooking the ocean. The local staff is highly trained and work endlessly to ensure your stay at Manta is rewarding and memorable. You will have your own service fundi - a member of the staff assigned to assist you personally - and they may even take you to visit their home villages. 

A true highlight of Manta Resort is a stay at the renowned Underwater Room. This private, floating structure features a bedroom four meters below the surface, and was created to encourage guests to appreciate the water in a more intimate setting. Spend the evening stargazing from the top deck and head to bed in the fully enclosed underwater room, surrounded by a captivating tropical marine environment. 

Activities can be booked directly from the lodge, and guests are welcome to spend their days relaxing on the beach, snorkeling along the coral reefs, deep-sea diving, taking a walk through the Ingazi Forest, sailing to the sandbar or enjoying a sunset cruise.

-4 Superior Garden Rooms with mosquito nets and AC
-4 Standard Garden Rooms with mosquito nets and fan
-Spa with one complimentary treatment per full day
