Welcome to The Vivari Hotel and Spa
Vivari Hotel & Spa is anything but standard
Situated in a leafy valley in Johannesburg, near the Cradle of Humankind, home to our earliest ancestors, Vivari Hotel & Spa is anything but standard. The hotel name is a Sanskrit word loosely translated means “uncovered”. It is an environmental wonder with over 300 species of trees and 150 artworks from local artists mounted all over the property. A healthy lifestyle becomes part of our daily routine. Our 48 luxury rooms and suites blend into the natural surroundings where guests can enjoy tranquillity and respite, surrounded by completely original, creative and unexpected spaces. The Vivari Hotel & Spa by Mantis also has three modern, well-equipped conference rooms, each accommodating between 10 - 150 delegates. Our popular venue, the Jala Pavilion is a glass-enclosed venue on the banks of the Crocodile River for bespoke celebrations and conferences with a maximum seating capacity of 200. Enjoy unique “farm to fork” cuisine where every ingredient holds its own story at our signature Brambles Restaurant whilst indulging in exquisite rooftop cocktails and watching mesmerizing sunsets.

Our Vivari Spa with its trendy and modern offerings, has won multiple awards this is partly due to us using Kneipp therapy, which treats the body, mind, and soul of an individual. We have a hydrotherapy suite with a steam room, an ice fountain, a heated vitality pool, and an infrared sauna cabin. Vivari Aesthetics works closely with Vivari Aftercare for patients who wish to have post-surgical aftercare. Aftercare offers hyperbaric oxygen treatments to speed up healing, IV therapy to boost immunity, and lymphatic drainage massage to reduce swelling. Our Aesthetic clinic Medi Sculpt makes Vivari one of the only hotel in South Africa that has a department of health-accredited day hospital with state-of-the-art facilities catered specifically for cosmetic and weight-loss surgery.

Aside from our unique offerings, we have also specially chosen names for various areas within our property. Pecan Bar is so named because it is surrounded by magnificent 30-year-old pecan trees. The fine dining restaurant named Brambles because during the building process, thorny bramble bushes covered the entire area where the restaurant is located. The Buddha is a statement piece at Vivari Hotel and Spa. The magnificent Buddha comes from a tiny side street in a place called Kuta in Bali, made of volcanic rock, it is one of its kind in South Africa, and takes its pride place in front of Vivari Spa in a reflection pond. Another interesting item found at Vivari is a Steinway piano from the 1930s. A Jewish family fleeing Europe after World War II brought it to South Africa. Purchased at an antique auction, it is now in the private dining area at our Brambles Restaurant.
