Underwater hotel room opens in Africa

A new hotel is offering guests the chance to sleep with the fishes and live to tell about it.

The Manta Resort, just off the coast of Tanzania, has added an underwater hotel room for adventurous visitors..

The room was designed by a Swedish company and includes a rooftop deck, a bathroom and lounge area at sea level.

The bedroom is downstairs, with the fish, so visitors can sleep surrounded by sea creatures.

The resort is popular with divers going to the coral reef around Pemba Island.

The room costs $1,500 a night for a two-person stay, or $900 a night for singles.

The new room opened for business in November.
