Hidden on the remote island of Pemba off the east coast of Africa, The Manta Resort is a well kept secret. With primitive forest, undulating hills and deep fertile valleys at its back, this heavenly hideaway overlooks turquoise waters and a soft white-sand beach and offers guests total and luxurious privacy.

The star attraction of the resort is the spectacular Underwater Room. Four meters below the surface of the ocean and some distance from the coast, this floating suite lets you watch the fascinating activity of the tropical seabed from inside your comfortable room. Completely surrounded by water, the top deck provides an entirely private sunbathing spot and romantic stargazing stage, while the water deck is perfect for dining and lounging.

Back on land, suites take the form of Sea Front Villas, Garden Villas and Superior Garden Villas, each appointed with all the usual modern, luxury conveniences. The resort features a wonderful dining verandah overlooking the ocean, a sparkling pool with an extensive deck and a beach lounge from which to enjoy breathtaking sunsets.

Unspoilt coral reefs provide captivating diving and snorkelling opportunities and at low tide a sandbank magically appears while the Ngezi Forest is an explorer’s dream. It’s home to a variety of endemic bird species, monkeys and flying fox, and is scattered within its depts are the ruins of mosques, tombs and sites that date back to the island’s Arab domination in the 17th century.
