The Manta Resort

The Manta Resort is a good value remote lodge on the North of the island of Pemba, people come here for the diving and the remoteness if you feel you want to escape the commercial Zanzibar. The Lodge has been here for a long time but has changed hands over the years, there have been a few improvements which have brought up the standard. Still a relatively simple lodge with a quiet beach and great dive spots.

Manta Resort - The Facts 

The resort is located on the North of  Pemba, which is an island off the Tanzanian Coast, just North of Zanzibar. You can only get here by light aircraft from Zanzibar or Dar es Salaam. The Lodge is about a 2 hour drive from Chake Chake, the capital of Pemba.
The main area of the lodge has a great view looking North West onto the Indian Ocean, all meals are taken on the main veranda or under the large thatched roof structure. There are a 17 rooms in total, 6 superior beach front rooms, 4 superior garden view rooms and 7 garden view rooms. There is a good sized pool and a dive centre with its own beach where you can take trips out to the many great dive spots nearby, perfect for a Tanzania honeymoon.

The Manta Resort works perfectly at the end of a Tanzania safari adventure, a great little resort to relax.

The Underwater Room 

For a unique and really mesmerising experience, go to Manta and spend a night in their very own underwater bedroom... Perfect for honeymooners - fall asleep with the colourful marine life all around, completely isolated from the outside world. Take a short boat ride from Pemba Island to find this fascinating bubble of Indian Ocean romance - could you think of an experience more quirky and interesting?
