Manta Resort Opens First Underwater Hotel Room

Manta Resort located on Pemba Island in Zanzibar has unveiled a new private accommodation, a beautiful bedroom submerged 13 feet below the Indian Ocean.  The private floating island suite was designed by Swedish artist Mikael Genberg, who also built the first underwater hotel room in a lake in Sweden. The three-tiered suite includes a rooftop deck, a bathroom and a lounge area at sea level, and finally the bedroom downstairs, with breathtaking views of astounding marine life. However, sleeping with the fishes doesn’t come cheap, booking a night in this exclusive room will cost you $900 per night for singles; or $1500 per night for a two-person stay, and you better plan ahead of time.
