Mantis Owners Collection is the latest addition to Mantis, joining the well-established Mantis Collection and Mantis eXtreme portfolios. Launching this month, all the hand-picked properties in the Owners Collection represent the finest examples of their kind and celebrate the culture, gastronomy, architecture and nature of the locations in which they are found. The spectacular selection of exclusive-use homes, villas and boats can be found across the globe in countries such as South Africa, Scotland, Seychelles, France and even Sri Lanka, to mention but a few. Each of the properties is offered with an understanding from the owner – an insight into how they came to have homes in the various locations and their passion for the destination, its people and culture.

In-house services include daily housekeeping and a House Manager, who is available to make necessary arrangements and bookings in and around the area in which you find yourself.  Among other services unique to each property, a private chef and attentive butler can also be arranged at any one of the properties for those who wish to be catered for. Travellers can choose from a private lodge in Africa to a country home in the Scottish highlands. Select beach homes in Sri Lanka and Seychelles are also included in the group. Each destination has been carefully selected for its unique qualities and the exceptional experience that awaits each guest.

Founder of the Mantis Owners Collection, Adrian Gardiner commented: “The Mantis Collection, and subsequently The Owners Collection, was born from an African conservation dream and my lifelong wish to have my own piece of Africa.  “I feel honoured to be able to share this dream with like-minded travellers and peers, by including one of my own private homes in the portfolio, namely Founders Lodge in the Eastern Cape, South Africa.”

The exceptional list of homes around the world upholds the Mantis philosophy of recognizing the importance of nature, culture and beauty, while offering guests the ultimate in bespoke accommodation.
