Accommodation & Facilities

There are three different types of rooms available at Manta Resort; garden room, superior garden room and a seafront villa. Each of the rooms has a large en-suite bathroom and each are complete with a king size bed and a comfortable outdoor veranda- a perfect place to return to with a sundowner after an exciting day of exploring.  Superior garden rooms are situated in pairs with interconnecting doors; this is wonderful for small groups and families travelling together. The piece de resistance of the Manta Resort is the underwater room situated off the coast of Pemba Island. Your very own three level floating island consists of a rooftop deck, a shaded water deck (perfect for romantic meals) and your bedroom situated four metres below the surface.

For each stay at the Manta Resort you are given a daily treatment of your choice at the Kipepeo spa; the ultimate place of relaxation as it is located on the seafront, listen to the soothing waves lap against the white sands whilst enjoying a massage, facial, manicure or pedicure. 

There is Wi-Fi available in the main lounge area as well as a laundry service.


All meals are included at the Manta Resort and many of the delicious dishes on offer consist of locally caught seafood, beef, chicken and vegetables. Many of the cocktails and fresh juices are made from the local fruit and you can even drink water straight from a coconut. Most meals are served on the outdoor veranda overlooking the crystal clear waters of the Indian Ocean.


As well as relaxing by the pool, enjoying the panoramic vistas and spa treatments there are a number of excursions which are available from the resort. These include cultural trips to the local villages and schools (a colouring book is always appreciated), a guided walk through the Ngezi rainforest and a lighthouse walk and tour.
