Welcome to the The Manta Resort with Underwater Room. Situated at remote island of Pemba – an island part of the Zanzibar archipelago just off the coast of Tanzania. The experience in this room was incredible, one that I would recommend to any extravagant.

#1 Tanzania’s Zanzibar Archipelago

On the remote Pemba Island in the Indian Ocean, guests of the Manta Resort have the option to stay in an underwater room that’s immersed 13 feet below the surface.

#2 Designer, Mikael Genberg

The floating hotel room that’s part of the resort was designed by Swedish artist Mikael Genberg, who also constructed the floating Utter Inn in Sweden’s Lake Malaren.

#3 The Perfect Location

For this project, Genberg wanted a remote location in clearer waters, and found it off Pemba’s coast in the form of “the blue hole”, a circular clearing within the coral reef.

#4 A Blue Water Fantasy

The open ocean setting made it the ideal location to anchor the new underwater structure, a floating hotel room with an underwater bedroom and a unique view.

#5 Genberg’s Concept & Vision

Genberg has the natural ability to engage imaginations through his architectural concepts, and to inspire people to look and absorb the scenic environment with the incentives to “build a collective consciousness and make the world a better place”.

#6 The Floating Hotel

Above the underwater space, guests can climb a ladder to the water level, which contains a bathroom and lounge, or climb further to the rooftop and enjoy the sun or lay beneath the stars at night.

#7 The Views

The floating structure is made of local hardwood, it offers three levels of panoramic views for visitors to absorb the watery environment from above, below, and at sea level.

#8 Visiting Sea-life

Frequent local visitors include a “trumpet fish known as Nick”, as well as squid and octopus at night.

#9 The Dark Of Night

Above and below each of the room’s eight windows, spotlights illuminate sea life that swims by.

#10 The Manta Resort

Since the resort has only one underwater space within the now 17-room resort, single nights in the room can be added to an existing stay for $900 for one person per night, or $1500 for a couple.
