In the far north-west of Pemba Island, Manta Resort is a laid-back remote beach retreat with fantastic views, a powder-white beach and 18 simple rooms. It had a change of ownership in 2008, and since then the owners have worked hard to upgrade the facilities and generally improve the standard of the lodge.
Our view of Manta Resort
Manta Resort is certainly one of the more remote lodges we feature – on a far corner of the undeveloped Pemba Island. It’s not a ‘resort’ in the typical sense of the word, it’s laid back and un-pretentious, and the views are certainly spectacular. It commands a fairly high price tag – and those looking for a smooth luxury resort may be disappointed, but for those who want somewhere a little different and off the beaten track, we think it’s well worth the money.
Manta Resort is beautifully situated on Tanzania's Pemba Island.
