PHOTOS: See Africa’s First Underwater Hotel Room
Africa has introduced its first underwater hotel room and it’s the second room of this kind in the world. This room, located at the Manta Resort on the Zanzibari island of Pemba, was designed by the same Swedish artist Mikael Genberg, who erected the first underwater hotel room in a lake in Sweden. The invention is 4 meters beneath the surface. The three-tiered suite includes a roof deck, a landing deck at sea level with a lounge and bathroom, and of course the underwater bedroom. The bedroom windows afford a nearly 360-degree view of a nearby coral reef and dozens of species of fish.
A luxurious room costs $900 per night as a single or $1,500 per night as a couple.
