We are extremely excited to announce the inclusion of The Manta Resort to the Prestige Collection, Manta offers something very different from most tropical islands – it’s not about five-star luxury. If it’s tranquillity, home with nature you crave, The Manta Resort is the place for you.  The underwater hotel room at Manta is rated as one of the top  5 in the world.

Imagine yourself encapsulated within a turquoise blue bubble, watching shoals of reef fish swimming lazily by – sometimes in three or four layers of different species above the reef floor.

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.

Switch of your noisy, pressurized, polluted electronic world and enter a completely different one – not as a tourist, but as a sentient human being with simple needs – sunshine, fresh sweet-smelling air, natural food, a pristine comfortable bed and friendly company to care for you and yours. All to be found folded into the edge of a primitive forest and set on rising land overlooking the purest, most turquoise waters that ever caught your breath – these waters hide secrets of the most exquisite kind – coral reefs unspoilt – and they are fringed by snow white, delicately soft sand on one of the most beautiful beaches in the world.

Manta, our treasured hideaway where you can feel the simplicity of a naturally evolved traditional Swahili island culture – and timeless peace and quiet.
