The Mantana Resort was build in 2007 by a group of like-minded people who came together to build a tourism project. When they build this long-term vision they realized that it was not just Manta and their interest drove them to Pemba,when in Pemba they realized again that they were there for a certain reason which was Pemba is a tropical Island, remote, culture instinct ,environment is hopeful and i was their opportunity to keep Pemba as genuinely natural place.
They are famously known for their Kwanini Foundation. The foundation, in close collaboration with the Manta Resort, has been involved in several community project over the last five years. These are generally projects that have been requested by the community like sponsorship of the local football team trophy-the Kwanini cup. Football means a lot to the local villagers and is a means of improving social cohesion and well being.
