Tucked into the base of the oldest tropical rain forest preserve in the western hemisphere, Manta Lodge offers guests rooms which all face the ocean, have private bathrooms, and a porch or veranda, allowing the guest vistas across the sea to Little Tobago, the sun rise, and the assortment of birds and butterflies that inhabit the area. The property features an exclusive 22 bedrooms, but also has great amenities like an on-site bar and restaurant, beach, dive shop, swimming pool, and plenty of hiking trails.

Visitors hoping to eat on-site will especially enjoy Manta, since they have some quality on-location dining possibilities. Green Moray is one possible option, which is a convenient choice for those craving some Caribbean food. Then head over to the hotel's on-site bar.
