At Mantis, our underlying philosophy is one of responsible and ecologically sensitive development and operations, supporting the local environment while conserving and maintaining all natural resources. It is our duty to ring the bell for sustainability and to safe-guard our legacy.
We recognize that education is an important facet to the growth and ultimate success of the world’s youth, and thus the future.
Founded by Adrian Gardiner, Mantis Collection is a collection of award-winning, privately owned properties located around the World. We believe our Group’s growth and respectability in the market place has been founded on our acknowledgement and respect of the environment, hence the acronym for Mantis: Man And Nature Together Is Sustainable.
We have aligned ourselves with a number of Partners which have that same sense of social responsibility.

Each with a unique spirit, yet all are linked by a collective obsession to be extraordinary. To be rare in a world that mass produces sameness.
