The Manta Resort off the east coast of Africa offers submerged rooms that provide a breath-taking underwater view, as photographed by Jesper Anhede. Near Pemba Island, the hotel’s Underwater Room is four meters under the water’s surface. The room’s glass walls display a panoramic view of the native wildlife and crystalline blue waters. On its own the hotel offers a truly idyllic getaway, but this luxurious room option is absolutely mind-blowing. This area is also known as one of the top five dive spots in the world, so the marine life is definitely worth beholding.

The top deck of the Manta Resort allows guests to jump off the open-concept deck into the surrounding waters for a swim, enjoy the cool ocean breeze or star-gaze at nighttime.
