Kwanini The Manta Resort
is located on Pemba Island off the Indian Ocean Coast of southeast Tanzania.

It is a relatively high-end beach lodge in a remote setting on Pemba, a very beautiful tropical island with very low visitor numbers and a real sense of the old Swahili Coast. The lodge is in a prime location, with a great beach. There is a decent swimming pool, a very pleasant beach bar, a spa and 17 guest rooms. There is also an additional underwater room, which gets a good deal of press attention. A genuinely wide range of excellent activities includes some of the most superb diving in East Africa.

The main potential downsides at Kwanini The Manta Resort are the very high prices despite the fact that this is most definitely not a five star experience. Service levels have historically been quite variable, the lodge design is quite plain, the rooms are quite outdoorsy and the underwater room is something of a gimmick. It is also quite a difficult place to get to.
