Our ethos sets us apart
We are committed to conservation.
With sustainability as our cornerstone, we have unearthed a distinguished collection of extraordinary destinations, each capturing the essence of its location.
An authentic celebration of their locations; Mantis properties are small and intimate or vast and complex, on a sweeping African plain, bustling city, tropical island or frozen snowscape, each is an exceptional place for guests to find themselves.
Mantis has three main pillars which can be seen throughout all our hospitality offerings and can be felt through our staff. These passions encapsulate our ethos and form the golden thread which set Mantis apart in a world of sameness.
