The Manta Resort - Underwater Room In TanzaniaThe Manta  

Located on Pemba Island in Zanzibar, The Manta Resort has a remarkable jewel in its crown of luxury, an underwater sea room. It's part of an ingenious floating structure. There are three levels.

The landing deck is where the boat drops you off and the location of lounge and bathroom. The top floor has daybeds and shades for relaxing during the day and watching the stars at night - they say you can see the Milky Way and the planets due to the lack of light pollution.

Below sea level is the submariner room, a bedroom bubble where fish glide past your window.

There are even fish that have made their homes around the structure; out here, you won't be visited by other guests but by three batfish and a trumpet fish called Nick (although I heard Nick the trumpetfish is an alcoholic, but he's fine if you catch him before 4 pm).

The room is located in a "blue hole" in the middle of a living coral reef, so it is the perfect place for diving and snorkeling enthusiasts and people who like The Little Mermaid.

Manta Resort is located on the trendy island of Zanzibar, known for its beaches and the town of Stone Town. Pemba is a trendy place to dive and for those seeking tranquility.

The Manta Resort

The Manta Resort is in the northwest of Pemba Island in a secluded spot with lush green forests on one side and white sand beaches and the colorful coral reefs of the Indian Ocean on the other.

The floating house with an underwater room in the ocean is located 820 feet (250 meters) offshore in a Blue Hole - an irregularity in the coral reef.

The bedroom is located below the surface and offers views on all sides. The colorful swarm of fish and sometimes other marine species swim past your bedroom window.

Sleep with the fish

It feels so close to you that you can nearly touch them, even if it's an illusion from the safety of your underwater room.

Underwater room at night

You can spend your whole day observing marine life without the need to jump into the water with your snorkeling/diving equipment.
