Pemba Island - Manta Resort 7 nights

Manta Resort

Spend 7 nights on Pemba Island at Manta Resort.

Pemba is a remote island off the east coast of Africa, and probably as far away from civilisation you might ever find yourself. The Manta Resort is not a 5 star luxury resort and certainly different to what you might find on other tropical islands. If you’re expecting bling bling bling you will be disappointed. If you however are looking for serenity, close encounters with nature and a close knit family of people we look forward to sharing our island with you.

We offer something different from most tropical islands and it’s not about traditional five-star luxury. If it’s serenity, close encounters with nature and a family of staff you crave, then the Manta Resort is the place for you. Elevated and crafted along an idyllic island beach, The Manta Resort offers privacy, romance, adventure and water sports on East Africa’s finest island sanctuary.

Pemba Island has been separated from the mainland of Tanzania and Zanzibar for decades, leaving an untouched and pristine island of great beauty and fertility. The mosaic of forests, swamps, mangroves, hidden beaches and lagoons is scattered with the ruins of mosques and tombs mostly reclaimed by the forest – sites that date back to Arab domination when Pemba Island was seized by the Sultan of Muscat (Oman) in the 17th century. He loved the Spice Islands and established his court in Zanzibar and ruled Muscat from there.
Imagine an unspoilt island within a Marine National Park, deserted beaches of pure white sand that extend for miles, sparkling turquoise seas crisscrossed by local dhows plying their trade, sunny days and star studded nights…and you have Azura Mozambique.
