Pemba Island’s Manta Resort has a new underwater room. Part of the Zanzibar archipelago off the coast of East Africa, the resort’s newest feature allows guests to book a private floating island, part of which is submerged 13 feet below the Indian Ocean.
With nothing but swimming fish and other sea creatures for neighbors, the room is a $1500 a night, luxurious respite even for those without a penchant for the underwater. Rates for a single person remain $900. The Manta Resort also offers stunning seafront villas (Double- $745 room/night, Single- $450 room/night) and garden rooms (Double- $495 room/night, Single- $300 room/night).
