Nestled within a turquoise ocean floor anomaly dubbed “the blue hole,” Manta Resort’s celebrated Underwater Room affords an unparalleled opportunity to observe and form an intimate connection with Pemba Island’s unique sea life. But that’s not all this charming 13-room boutique has to offer. From locally-designed and traditional Pemban decor, to all-inclusive spa treatments, to time-stopping white sand beaches, Manta Resort provides no shortage of restorative amenities designed to help you relinquish your worries to the boundless tranquility of the sea.
More than just an idyllic getaway, Manta Resort is also a primary sponsor for the Kwanini Foundation, a local nonprofit which directs funds toward social and environmental initiatives such as the Kwanini Marine Protected Area and Mnarani Water Pipeline. With its outstanding commitment to community-based tourism, guests can rest assured that a stay at Manta Resort is an investment toward the collective flourishing of all residents of Pemba Island.
Manta Resort keeps their Kwanini — their why — at the heart of everything they do. From protecting marine life to investing in local infrastructure, Manta Resort’s community-grounded mission helps it foster strong social and environmental initiatives, and the collective flourishing for all of Pemba’s inhabitants.
Perched atop the northern leftmost tip of the remote island of Pemba, with a population of fewer than 500,000, Manta Resort offers the perfect peaceful escape from the hustle and bustle of mainland Tanzania and neighboring Unguja. Unplug from noise, pressure and pollution and find home in the simple comforts of nature at Manta Resort — home to the Kwanini Foundation-run Marine Protected Area and all the unspoilt coral reefs, pristine white sand beaches and crystal clear ocean waters that comes with it.
