The Manta Resort - Pemba Island

Pemba Island, Tanzania, United Republic of

Love at First Sight

The Manta Resort sits on the remote island of Pemba off the eastern coast of Africa. Far off the beaten track, this untouched paradise offers the chance to get back to the simplicity of nature, and each other. With white sandy beaches, a rich medley of botanical treasures, and 4-star luxury offering tropical opulence and unforgettable experiences, The Manta Resort is perfect for any romantic celebration.

Romance

The island of Pemba offers a special kind of unique magic perfect for romancing. Our incredible underwater room offers a private floating island, perfect for sunbathing with cocktails, stargazing with champagne, and evenings enjoying private romantic dinners, before heading below sea level for an aquatic night to remember.

Sunset cruises and private beach dinners are just some of the experiences we can arrange to make your romantic celebrations unforgettably enchanting. Stargazing up at the moonless sky from the deserted island beach, or an incredible sandbank trip will create memories to last you a lifetime.

Your Stay

The Manta Resort has a truly unique offering for your visit to Pemba Island. Our underwater room, a two minute boat ride over the Manta house reef, gives guests the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to sleep underwater with panoramic views of the marine life.

Combine your stay with one of our other incredible offerings such as the seafront villa, with a private plunge pool and direct path to the beach, or our garden rooms, boasting beautiful, lush green private gardens and outdoor showers.

Your stay at The Manta Resort is all-inclusive and also offers complimentary daily spa treatments, and free access to kayaks from the beach. You’ll also be making a positive difference to the island when you stay by supporting our dedicated conservation efforts.

What to Do

Our remote location offers sights and activities hard to find anywhere else. With a Marine Protected Area coral reef right on our doorstep, snorkelling and diving is some of the best around Pemba. Sunset cruises of the bay offer you the opportunity to spot dolphins and other incredible marine life.

Inland, you can enjoy excursions through one of the oldest rainforests in the world, Ngezi Forest. Take in the local village culture in Mnarani, before exploring the panoramic views atop the island’s 100-year-old lighthouse.

At the resort, enjoy spa treatments, walks along the pristine sandy beach, socialising in the lounge or beach bar and of course a dip in our tiered pool!

The Food of Love

Our Seaview Restaurant offers local fare served in stunning settings, from lunch on the elevated terrace, private dinners on the sandbanks to breakfast on the pool deck or beach.

Enjoy seafood platters complete with lobster and wine, fresh fruit and pastry in the morning and fruity cocktails whenever you please! With locally sourced ingredients from the nearby market, your culinary experience at Manta Resort will be authentic, lovingly created, and most of all, delicious.
