Mantis Impact – Our Projects
Supporting our communities and protecting the planet
Travel with purpose
Mantis promises luxury hospitality, but never at the expense of our planet. We promote adventures that have been carefully crafted, without harming the natural world. Our conservation team runs pioneering conservation projects. We upskill and employ local community members, support community projects that drive upliftment, and promote indigenous designers, artists and other local talent.
We are guided by our 3 passions: Conservation, Sustainability and Celebrating Locality.
Our conservation priority is preserving the natural environment and biodiversity for future generations. This includes projects focusing on the protection of endangered species and habitats, and various environmental awareness campaigns.
Planet21, Accor’s sustainable development program, a guide with quantified goals to achieve, is rolled out at each Mantis property. Our guests are encouraged to make use of our foundation’s carbon reduction calculator to offset carbon emissions from travel.
