Mantis St Helena

Experience an extraordinary tale of history, nature & culture

A place of unique character and unspoilt beauty

Stay in this beautiful boutique hotel set in the original East India Company’s officers’ barracks built in 1774.

Until now, the remote tropical British territory of St Helena has only been accessible by ship. The advent of commercial flights has reduced journey times from days to mere hours. Today you can experience an extraordinary tale of history, nature and culture, in a place of unique character and unspoilt beauty. Located at 1 Main Street in Jamestown, the island’s capital, Mantis St Helena is a boutique hotel set in the original East India Company’s officers’ barracks built in 1774.

The Hotel boasts a large restaurant, cocktail bar, guest lounge and two spacious outdoor terraces. Offering luxurious Heritage Rooms and Suites and newly built Contemporary Rooms, Mantis has set a new accommodation standard on the island. The hotel is a delightful combination of history and modern buildings, just a short walk from the sea front and main attractions of Jamestown, including Jacob's Ladder, shops, bars, restaurants and transport links.

Dining here is all about classically-inspired dishes that reflect the island's cultural influences, and of course using local ingredients where possible. Diners can opt for the restaurant or terrace, and special diets are happily catered for. There is WI-FI offered throughout the hotel, and additional airtime can be purchased from reception for guests who exceed their daily allowance. Guests should note that there are limited Wi-Fi spots available outside the hotel within Jamestown

Discover centuries-old military fortifications and the legacies of past exiles, encounter fascinating flora and fauna found nowhere else on the planet, and meet the locals - affectionately called ‘Saints’ - renowned for their warm and friendly welcome. Whether an active explorer, avid historian or marine enthusiast, this must-do destination has something for everyone.
