Manta Resort is a small facility located on the northern coast of Pemba Island.

The resort consists of 15 rooms set on a promontory. The six seaview villas are located on the front row and feature a wide verandah overlooking the sea. The four Superior garden rooms are set back on the garden and can only offer a partial sea view. These rooms are interconnected two by two, each room has its own bathroom and outdoor verandah. Both the seaview villas and the superior garden room have air conditioning. The four standard garden rooms are scattered in the garden. These rooms are quite small and do not have air conditioning. The underwater room is anchored in the lagoon off the seashore and be booked also for a single night during your stay.

The lodge is complemented by a large makuti hosting the bar, the lounge and the restaurant and by the swimming-pool, the PADI diving centre and the little SPA.

Coming down the hill you come to a beautiful white sandy beach stretching for about 500 meters. The first stretch of shoreline, for about 30 meters, is characterized by coral outcrops and you will need to wear sea-shoes however once over you will reach the crystal-clear lagoon where it is always possible to swim, even at low tide.

Talking about diving Manta Resort has ever had a vocation. Its location allows to easily reach some of the most beautiful diving sites of the north-western coast as well as various interesting spots for novices and snorkellers. Good swimmers may, at low tide, swim to the reef in front of the beach [approx. 400 mt] to enjoy some snorkeling albeit they will not find here the same of abundance of fish of the above mentioned sites which can be reached by boat in about an hour.

In addition to diving and snorkeling, activities offered by the lodge include boat trips to sand banks, guided walks to Ngezi forest where you might sight flying foxes, excursions to the nearby protected beach of Vumavimbi, spice tours.

Manta Resort is surely an enjoyable destination if you are looking for a quiet place to spend your holidays.

The facility accepts VISA and Mastercard [5% bank commissions apply].
