    The Manta Resort


    The resort is focused around a large open planned relaxing area that welcomes you to the sea. Life on Pemba revolves around the ocean tides, and as the day progresses you will witness the ever changing colours and shades of blue and green as the tide ebbs and flows.

    At The Manta Resort, you will be treated to a mouth-watering variety of fresh locally caught seafood as well as a variety of beef, chicken and vegetable dishes, some of which have a distinct Pemba touch to them. Meals are served on the main verandah overlooking the ocean but move to the pool deck and beach for a change of scenery when possible.

    The fully stocked bar serves drinks all day on the beach and throughout the resort. And you can sample the delicious fruit platter and snacks when peckish.

    See the tide come and go while sipping away at a "Lemongrass Ginger Sling", your feet buried in the warm sand, and a soft breeze cooling your skin. The bartenders specialize in a variety of sundowners and cocktails and will spoil you with fruit drinks and cocktails from the freshest handpicked island mango, lime, lemon, pineapple, and coconuts blended with a touch of rum to create uniquely smooth and refreshing drinks.
