Port Elizabeth

Mantis No 5 Boutique Art Hotel Location Map

Port Elizabeth (now renamed Gqeberha), at the tail end of South Africa’s Garden Route, may be better known for its surf and sunshine than its artistic pedigree, but the city is in fact home to the country’s largest collection of Art Deco buildings.

Yet it took turning one of them into the splendid Mantis No 5 Boutique Art Hotel (formerly No5 by Mantis) to really showcase PE’s artistic potential. With its sleek facade and eclectic interiors, this luxury boutique masterpiece looks as if it would be more at home in Hollywood than steps away from the Indian Ocean, and one can almost imagine a glossy starlet or 2 sipping martinis on a red velvet barstool in the Salon Prive, or taking a dip in the lap pool.

Well-equipped with distant views of the ocean, the gym will energize you and ensure a sustained exercise routine while away from home.

There’s even a small cinema, modelled on the one in Prince Charles’ Clarence House residence, where guests can enjoy a film screening in absolute comfort and privacy.

Mantis No 5 Boutique Art Hotel offers 10 exquisite suites, with clean lines, bold prints and a selection of contemporary South African art. Secluded balconies look out over manicured gardens, while in-room facilities include a flat-screen TV and DVD player, mini-bar, and business unit with WiFi.

Room service dining is available, although it’s worth a trip downstairs to the Jazz Room, for South African fusion dining, or to the lounge for tea and French champagne.
