Manta Resort & the Underwater Room in Pemba Island

The Manta Resort is a remote beachfront lodge located on Pemba Island, Zanzibar, Tanzania, Africa. The underwater room is a private floating island with your bedroom four meters below the surface.

This is the heart-stopping experience that awaits you in the underwater room.
The floating structure, Swedish engineered, provides three levels, those above the water clad in local hardwood, and each an experience in itself.

From the hotel:

The landing deck, at sea level, has a lounge area and bathroom facility. A ladder leads up to the roof which has a lounging area – for sun worshipping by day and by night you can lie back in the starlight and wonder at the extraordinary clarity of the stars, planets and above all, the edge of our own galaxy – the wonderful Milky Way – all seen without any light pollution. Sleep under the stars to the soft murmuring of the sea……
