My Girlfriend and I travelled independently to Pemba last December. Secretly I had been planning to propose on the island and had informed the amazing staff at the Manta Resort of my intentions when I Booked.
The resort is my idea of heaven, no crowds, beautiful setting, plush but oh so relaxed and the staff were so accomodating. We were upgraded to a beach front Villa as they had one free. They created the perfect romantic meal for us on the evening that I proposed by setting a table up on their private beach surrouded by flowers and lanterns! Everything was perfect. To give you an idea of the sort of service to expect, my wife dropped one of her earrings over the balcony while we were having dinner. Noticing us looking the resort manager assured us he would find it for us in the morning. He spent over an hour searching for it in the morning and it was presented to us at breakfast!
Oh and as an added bonus the diving is great too!
I really can't stress enough how wonderful this place is but don't go expecting all the trappings of a 5* resort in Dubai. This place is in a completely diferent league to that kind of holiday and your efforts to get there will be rewarded.
