Located in the far north of Tanzania’s Pemba Island, Manta Resort is the archetype of an idyllic, remote and untouched tropical getaway. Set on a pristine white beach just metres away from a vibrant coral reef, this is the kind of place where you can indulge in barefoot, Crusoe-chic romance.
Here you can dive and snorkel perfect reefs in total seclusion, explore this magical island with its rich history of the spice trade and the rise and fall of the Arab empire, and wander lush tropical forests in search of monkeys and the endemic flying fox. If you choose a more sedate pace you can enjoy the sparkling pool overlooking the limpid ocean or indulge in a decadent spa treatment while the breeze gently ruffles the palm trees over the beach. But its highlight but surely be the unique ‘underwater room’, a 3-storey glass-fronted suite where your bedroom is four metres below water. At night, spotlights illuminate the reef and passing fish, making for an ever-changing but peaceful scene to drift off to.
Perfect for a family getaway or a blissful honeymoon, The Manta Resort offers a tropical paradise in perfect seclusion, coupled with attentive personal service and delicious cuisine plucked fresh from the ocean.
