Even though the weather was bad - rain and storm - we had a good time in the underwaterroom. We saw a lot of fish, and got our food and drink served in the room - both in the evening and in the morning.

We went to visit this resort, which is right next door to the far more beautiful Hotel where we were staying,THE AIYANA. We took bicycles and in 10 minutes on a off road path we got to the gate of Manta resort. They let us through so we went to the bar as we were very dursty. First of all...

It's difficult to review this place as there's so many good things to mention. A different kind of world altogether and a true family! We spent 8 nights here at the Manta Resort for our honeymoon and it was truly an unforgettable experience. We felt lucky at first as we were upgraded to the ocean-facing room but this was only...

Spent 10 wonderful lazy days on Manta Resort in a Seafront Villa - wish i could have stayed forever... It is Robinson Crusoe feeling with all comforts - far far away from stress and hectic, but with lovely food, fantastic views - and wifi if one needs to be connected to the world. The staff is also part of what...

I could write a book about Manta and Pemba, there is so much to tell and so much more than we expected. From the minute we arrived we felt a sense of place and a connection to the people that are the Manta Family. As a couple we have travelled extensively and have been hosted by a long list of...

This is probably one of the most exclusive stays I've experienced since a very long time. The beach and ocean views are just breath taking, the underwater room is one of the most travel experiences on this planet and, the service is superbe and everything is extremely relaxed. Not overly luxurious. But overly relaxing. We didn't do that much, but...

Back to Pemba and The Manta Resort again. After entering the resort it took no more than a spicy ice tea, the sound of the waves and the horizon half way to Kenya to take down the pulse substantially. I still haven't found any place so efficient in creating stillness and still fill days - with diving, excursions and massage...

We spent two nights at Manta Resort in Pemba in October 2016 and had an absolutely fantastic stay. As we are living in the region we have stayed at many high end resorts but this one is definitely among the very finest ones, and the location is unbeatable. The private, white sand beach and pristine blue water was breathtaking. Everything...

How remote this resort is can be judged by the 20Km trip from the airport that takes one and a half hours in a four wheel drive. On arrival we were greeted by a number of staff and an individual was assigned to look after us for the whole 7 night stay. Service was very attentive with all food and...
