Floating Hotel with an Underwater Room | Mikael Genberg | Via
The Manta Resort is a beautiful, multi-room hotel that sits on the Indian Ocean island of Pemba. The spectacular getaway offers not only a place to rest your head for the night, but also some truly breathtaking views from its unique, underwater room. The floating structure, made of local hardwood, offers three levels of viewing for visitors to absorb the scenic environment from above, below, and at sea level.
Designed by Mikael Genberg of the Swedish company Genberg Underwater Hotels, The Manta Underwater Room is essentially a private architectural island that floats off the east coast of Africa, offering an awe-inspiring view of the surrounding landscape and marine life. With a bedroom located four meters below the surface, visitors are given a unique perspective of the plentiful presence of aquatic creatures swimming past and clinging onto the panoramic windows.
