The Manta Resort – Sleep like a mermaid

The Manta Resort – Sleep like a mermaid

 

Far away from civilization and located along an idyllic island beach “The Manta Resort” on Pemba Island in Zanzibar (Tanzania) offers privacy, romance and adventure. Different from most tropical islands they provide something unique: “The Underwater Bedroom”.

Besides fabulous and exclusive accommodations elevated and crafted on the idyllic island beach there is a private floating island with your bedroom four meters below the surface. It is yours to enjoy during the day while sunbathing and gazing over the crystal blue sea on the top deck or enjoy the unique view of the stars at night and then sleeping surrounded by a tropical marine environment – Here you don’t only have a view on the sea but also directly into it!

Forget all your worries and immerse yourself into a new world: The diving around Pemba Island is nothing else but breathtaking. The untouched coral reefs surrounding the entire island make Pemba one of the top dive sites in the world – with one of the healthiest untouched coral reefs in the Indian Ocean, a water temperature of 26°C and a visibility of 30-40 meters under water almost every day.

For those who want to explore the fascinating island there is a wide selection of activities. They range from walks to local villages and individually tailored safaris to guided tours through the ancient Ngezi rainforest. There you can search for the endemic “Pemba Flying Fox”, the largest bats species in the world.

Who is more interested in experiencing the islands’ waters, can take a traditional sailing boat called “Dhow”. These indigenous Arab ships are handmade and carved from mango wood.

“The Manta Resort” is perfectly suited to lay aside one’s worries and recharge the batteries.
