Folded into the edge of a lush, green forest, overlooking crystal-clear turquoise waters scattered with unspoilt coral reefs, fringed by delicate sandy white beaches, the Manta Resort on Pemba Island is a cherished space of timeless peace and serenity.
Featuring an array of accommodation options; choose between the luxurious Seafront Villas or the tranquil Superior or Standard Garden Rooms. For the more adventurous thalassophytes, the resort boasts a one-of-a-kind Underwater Room anchored to the ocean floor, often visited by passing tropical fish and other native sea life. Well-known for its laid-back yet modern extravagance managed by kind and thoughtful staff members, the resort also features an elevated on-site Seaview Restaurant, guest lounge area, swimming pool, and beach bar. The exquisite Kipepeo Spa also cannot be missed.
Spoilt for choice when it comes to islands experiences, look forward to spice farm and rainforest tours, lighthouse walks, white coral sandbank trips, sunset cruises, snorkelling excursions, sea kayaking and deep-sea fishing adventures.
What we love about The Manta Resort
- The Manta Resort’s newly built Beach Lounge located right by the resort’s luxurious guest swimming pool is the ideal spot to sip on cocktails as the sun begins to sink. Don’t miss the complimentary sundowners served every afternoon.
- Boasting more stars than seems possible, request a stargazing experience on the beach near the resort to observe the magnificent island’s night-skies in all its glory.
- Take a stroll through the local village, Mnarani on the way to the island’s lighthouse (approximately 20 minutes from the resort). Built in the early 1900s, this historical building offers a cultural experience with breathtaking views. If the tides are right, the lighthouse can also be reached from the beach.
