The Manta Resort is a perfect getaway on the island of Pemba in the Zanzibar Archipelago. Located on the East African coast, this heavenly place provides guests with some unforgettable moments spent in this small part of the Indian Ocean.

The accommodation in the Manta Resort consists of 17 beautifully designed apartments. They are differently categorized, but there is no doubt that each one of them is equally amazing and pleasant. That way, the Manta Resort boasts Sea Front Villas, Superior Garden Rooms, Garden Rooms, and the most exciting and unusual one – the Underwater Room.

If you decided to treat yourself with a holiday spent in one of the 6 Sea Front Villas, do not expect anything less than perfection. All of them are vast and private, equipped with air-conditioning, king-size beds, large bathrooms and isolated sun terraces.

In the resort there are 4 Superior Garden Rooms, which, unlike the Sea Front Villas, are nestled in lush greenery, but with a stunning view of the sea, of course. All rooms have air-conditioning, king-size poster beds and terraces covered with makuti thatch. This accommodation is a great option for larger groups or families, because one pair of rooms is connected with doors.

The seven open plan Garden Rooms are not air-conditioned, but they have spacious verandas, perfectly suitable for relaxation. Located in the garden, these accommodations have open plan bathrooms and king-size beds covered with nets that provide protection from mosquitoes.

The accommodation that makes the Manta Resort special is the Underwater Room. Immersed four meters underwater, around 250 meters off shore, the glass walls of this room allow visitors to enjoy a stunning view of the sea world that surrounds them.

Apart from the sunken room, what attracts tourists to visit this extraordinary resort are the intact coral reefs, because of which this area is one of the world’s top diving spots. With the help of professional dive instructors and some exercises in the training pool, you have the opportunity to observe the beautiful corals of the Indian Ocean.

For people who don’t like being completely isolated from civilization, the Manta Resort has one more great advantage – free Wi-Fi, while the lovers of massages and aesthetic treatments can use the resort’s spa once a day for free.

Not only are visitors directly synergized with the surrounding nature, but the staff are as well, and they are all giving their best to protect the environment and support the Pemba’s wildlife. [via]
