If you are not scared to have tropical fish and perhaps even sharks peep through your bedroom window, this new room of the Manta Resort may be for you. The resort is on the island of Pemba north of Zanzibar, renowned for some of Tanzania’s best diving. The Manta promises guests will be treated to the spectacle of marine life from the reef even at night with spotlights illuminating just who and what is lurking out there around them.
