Lodge, located at the north-eastern corner of the island of Tobago
in the sleepy fishing village of Speyside, is nestled on the fringe
of the Mountain Rain Forest, the oldest rainforest preserve in the Western Hemisphere. View our Google Map.
Each guest room has an ocean vista, private bathroom and porch or
veranda, perfect for viewing our spectacular sun rise, nearby Little Tobago, or the host of birds and butterflies flitting amongst the
bushes and trees.
The cozy 22 room property may be small, but it still features a
number of 'big' amenities - the Green Moray Bar & Restaurant, soft
sand beach, full service dive shop, freshwater swimming pool,
reading nook with a multi-lingual lending library, endless hiking
trails and plenty of room to relax!
It also offers something that can't be found at the larger
properties, and that is the "down home" feeling of intimacy and
warmth that surrounds you from the minute you arrive, to the day you
depart. More often than not, you'll leave with a new group of "life
friends" from among the staff and fellow guests.
Socializing at Manta Lodge frequently centers around the Green Moray
Restaurant, where guests gather for breakfast, lunch and
extraordinarily fine dinners that are generally followed by (and/or
preceded!) by lively chat sessions at the bar.
The Lodge's serene and comfortable setting is the backdrop to a host
of activities including bird watching, fishing, hiking, snorkeling
and most especially, diving.
Tobago's diving is unlike any to be found in the Caribbean, in large
part due to it's extraordinarily nutrient rich waters and deep
southern Caribbean location. It is in fact the most southerly
Caribbean island to support coral communities.
The best diving in Tobago is centered at Speyside where the waters
are home to many species of tropical fish, sharks, turtles, and
magnificent Manta Rays! Tobago is one of the few Caribbean
destinations where Manta's can be seen by divers (primarily during
the spring and early summer) on a regular basis. It is part of the Tobago Dive Experience our dive staff relish sharing with our
