THE MANTA RESORT IN PEMBA

Navigation Tip - Go Directly To Prices, Reviews, Map, Photos, Video & Room Rate Guide For The Manta Resort

Pristine white sand seashores, the tranquil turquoise of the Indian Ocean and lush tropical forests of the idyllic island of Pemba, north of Zanzibar, are a delight to behold as a superlative location for an off-beat beachfront holiday in East Africa. The Manta Resort located on the northwest of the island is well-suited for discerning travelers who are looking to revel in this glorious natural beauty but at modest stay over prices for its entry rooming compared to the deluxe Fundu Lagoon. Stone paved floors, rough-hewn tree trunks and thatched roofs make up the common areas of the lodge while an exterior deck allows you to spend time watching the ocean in complete tranquility (read more on when is the best time to go to Pemba Island). Choose from the hotel’s 20 rooms in different specifications. The Standard Garden Rooms are sited amidst the greens and can sleep two guests. Families or groups of four guests traveling with AfricanMecca can opt for the Superior Garden Rooms that offer partial views of the ocean. These units comprise of two interconnecting bedrooms each. Guests looking for more spacious living spaces can stay in the ocean-facing Seafront Villas. Manta Resort has yet another unique room for ocean aficionados, adventure couples or even honeymooners that is located within the ocean – “The Underwater Room”. This unit is made of three levels with the underwater lower level being used for the sleeping and the higher level for lounging with an ensuite bathroom. The topmost level is the terrace of the room where you can spend long hours sunbathing in complete privacy. This kind of inimitable rooming does come cheap on your seaside escapade in Tanzania. Manta Resort vacationers can expect to be served hearty, wholesome meals in its in-house restaurant.

The in-shore waters around Pemba Island are a haven for snorkeling and diving connoisseurs, and both beginners and seasoned explorers can discover the delights of many of the reef sites. They have fascinating names like the Pole Pole Mountain, Shimba Wall, Scorpions Secret, Njao Gap and many more. The sparkling waters of the ocean are crystal clear allowing you amazing visibility up to depths of 40 meters. The sunlight softly filtering lights up the gorgeous coral formations and their residents like barracudas, eagle rays, triggerfish, turtles, dog tooth tuna, squid and octopus to name a scarce few. From Manta Resort, experience the romance of sailing in a mango wood, traditional dhow or enjoy the incredible sunsets over the Indian Ocean in a ngwala, a distinct kind of olden handcrafted canoe. Revel in the stunning glow of the sun as it bathes the water in a fiery golden while gently slipping beneath the waters, a memorable evening of your twilight tour of Pemba Island. Picnic on a sandbank on low tide and walk on the splendid white beach sands that contrast sharply with the contrasting blues of the ocean. You could also visit the Ngezi Rainforest, a reserve that is home to many smaller fauna such as the black colobus and vervet monkeys, green pigeon, scops owl, Pemba sunbirds and many more. Add a fishing expedition to your AfricanMecca trip in Tanzania. Novice and experienced anglers will enjoy trying to land barracudas, giant trevally, dorado, sailfish, tuna, marlins, wahoos, swordfish and more. Revel in the thrill of reeling them to your boat alongside the option of tagging and releasing your catch, unless if you are going to consume it for your dinner!
