The Manta Resort, located on Pemba Island off Tanzania’s southeast coast, boasts a rare diamond in its crown of luxury: an underwater marine room. The Manta Resort, is a real tropical haven. It offers quiet, tranquility, and comfort, and it is in a fantastic location near some of Zanzibar‘s most beautiful beaches. With a wide range of hotel options and vacation packages, you may create a one-of-a-kind experience that will be remembered for a long time.
Six Seafront Villas, four Superior Garden Rooms, and seven Standard Garden Rooms are some of the option available.
There are king-sized mattresses, en-suite bathrooms, and terraces in every room, and the diversity ensures that there is something for everyone: couples, families, and solo visitors. The Manta Resort offers the Underwater Room, a three-story building moored out in the lagoon, for the ultimate ocean experience. The Underwater Room is truly stunning, with its roof patio where you can catch the sun during the day or watch the stars at night, and its lowest level bedroom, hanging four meters below the sea and affording an all-around view of aquatic life. Back at the main resort, a well-stocked bar serves drinks throughout the day, and a variety of delectable meals are served on the main veranda, the pool deck, and even the beach.
The Manta Resort is one of the best accommodation in Zanzibar especially if you enjoy watching marine life. High visibility and warm water temperatures, along with a plethora of species on the coral reef, make for perfect snorkeling and diving conditions in your stay to manta resort. Safari expeditions, sunset cruises, and visits to nearby towns are among the other activities offered by the resort. During your stay at The Manta Resort, there will never be a dull moment.
Features and experience of underwater room in Manta resort.
Imagine yourself in a turquoise blue bubble, watching shoals of reef fish swim by—sometimes in three or four levels of different species above the reef floor. The underwater room will provide you with a heart-stopping sensation. An all-inclusive hotel room sunk four meters beneath the ocean’s surface, a first for Africa, is located off the east coast of Africa by Pemba Island, a private floating island at the manta resort.
Each of the three levels of the buoyant structure has its own distinct view: a rooftop terrace for daytime sunbathing and nighttime stargazing; a landing deck at sea level with a lounge and washroom; and an underwater hotel room below encircled by glass panes for a 360-degree marine panorama.
The underwater spotlights beneath each window around the chamber attract the shyer and uncommon, such as squid, at night. On the anchoring wires and around the underwater structure, coral is already forming itself. Octopuses and even Spanish dancers have been observed clinging to the glass windows. The reef’s residents can’t help but be drawn in, making for thrilling viewing and a totally unique experience.
It’s not a “resort” in the traditional sense; instead, it’s laid-back and unpretentious, with great views. It comes with a hefty price tag – and those seeking a polished luxury resort may be disappointed – but for those searching for something a little different and off the beaten path, we believe it’s well worth the money, at $1500 per night for a double room.
Apart from the one-of-a-kind underwater room, the resort also offers Sea Front Villas, which are spacious and private, with en-suite bathrooms and a private sun patio. Superior Garden rooms with interconnecting doors enjoy sea views. The apartments are air-conditioned and have a king-size four-poster bed as well as a private makuti thatch-covered terrace. Standard garden rooms at the Manta Resort are open-plan makuti-thatched rooms in the garden with king-size mattresses with mosquito nets, an open-plan en-suite bathroom, and a veranda.
