Features the iconic Underwater Room

Kwanini, The Manta Resort is a true tropical getaway, located on Pemba Island just off the southeast coast of Tanzania. It provides serenity, tranquillity and comfort and is in a prime location with some of the most spectacular beaches of the Zanzibar archipelago. A variety of accommodation choices and holiday packages allows for a tailor-made experience that will be unforgettable.

Accommodation ranges from six Seafront Villas, four Superior Garden Rooms and seven Standard Garden Rooms. All rooms include king-sized beds, en-suite bathrooms and terraces, and the variety means there is something for everyone: couples, families and individuals. For the ultimate ocean experience The Manta Resort provides the Underwater Room which is a three-storey building anchored out in the lagoon. The roof terrace, where you can catch the sun in the day or watch the stars at night, and the lowest level bedroom, suspended four metres below the water and providing an all-round view of ocean life, make the Underwater Room truly spectacular. Back at the main resort, a well-stocked bar serves drinks all day and varied, mouth-watering meals are provided on the main veranda as well the pool deck and even the beach.

Kwanini, The Manta Resort provides one of the best experiences to see marine life in the Indian Ocean. High visibility and balmy water temperatures combined with the abundance of life in the coral reef provides ideal conditions for snorkelling and diving. The resort also caters for a variety of excursions including safari trips, sunset cruises and visits to the local villages. There will never be a dull moment during your stay at Kwanini, The Manta Resort!
