Vivari Hotel and Spa by Mantis - A Boutique Hotel and Spa with a Holistic Approach to Wellness, Nutrition, Fitness, and Aesthetic Beauty
The unique and ground-breaking Vivari Hotel & Spa by Mantis is now welcoming guests to its tranquil setting at Featherbrooke, close to the Cradle of Humankind, north of Johannesburg.
Vivari, a Sanskrit word which loosely translated means “uncovered”, is the first of its kind in Africa, encompassing the hotel and spa along with an aesthetic clinic and state-of-the-art hospital, accredited by the Department of Health and focusing on cosmetic surgery.
The hotel, which is 100% black and largely female-owned, offers an integrated approach to wellness incorporating five elements: holistic health, nutrition, fitness, spa, and aesthetic beauty.
With its setting amid expansive gardens and gigantic pecan nut trees, the hotel has a resort-like feel, offering 48 rooms and three suites spread across the property.
The brainchild of Dr. Anushka Reddy, a respected and award-winning female doctor in the specialty of aesthetic medicine, the hotel and its day hospital aim to put South Africa on the map as an international destination of choice for discerning patients who seek privacy for their medical procedures.
“We saw the need for medical tourism to be developed in South Africa and noticed it was particularly lacking in Johannesburg,”
says Dr. Reddy.
“We strongly believed that we could convince international medical tourists to visit our facility for cosmetic or weight-loss surgery which would pique interest in the area as well as inject much-needed revenue into our economy through tourism and health,”
Dr. Reddy adds.
The award-winning spa, winner of the prestigious international World Spa Awards for two years running, promotes Kneipp therapy which treats the body, mind, and soul of an individual. The spa facilities include a hydrotherapy suite with a steam room, an ice fountain, a heated vitality pool, and an infrared sauna cabin. Guests also have access to a mineral swimming pool, yoga studio, and gym.
Dining options include Brambles Restaurant and the Pécan Pool Bar, while the spectacular rooftop lounge and bar have a spectacular setting amid the giant pecan tree canopy.
The Vivari Hotel & Spa by Mantis also has three modern, well-equipped conference rooms, each accommodating between 120 and 150 people as well as Jala, a glass-enclosed wedding venue on the banks of the Crocodile River for bespoke weddings and celebrations.
The cherry on top is Vivari Aesthetics Institute for Surgical Excellence which boasts a modern, accredited hospital equipped with Vaser for body sculpting and liposuction and Renuvion for skin tightening.
The facility primarily caters to cosmetic surgery with a well-known team of plastic surgeons. It is also the only facility in South Africa that offers the Weight Doctors sleeve, a German non-surgical treatment for obesity.
To speed up the healing process, Vivari Aftercare provides hyperbaric oxygen therapy, IV nutritional therapy with high doses of vitamin C, and crucial lymphatic drainage massage.
Hotel guests also have the option to have non-surgical cosmetic procedures such as fillers and Botox with Dr. Anushka Reddy who has two decades’ worth of experience in aesthetic medicine.
Craig Erasmus, Vice President of South Saharan Africa for Accor, says:
“Johannesburg is a rich melting pot of culture, intriguing history, and incredible landmarks, and the hotel is the perfect base from which to explore the city. In addition, this boutique hotel provides guests with a unique blend of wellness, holistic health, and aesthetic beauty. We look forward to welcoming guests to Vivari Hotel and Spa by Mantis.”
As part of the Accor family, Vivari has partnered with the Mantis Community Conservation Fund Africa (CCFA), which allows guests to donate their Rewards Points to support projects that help preserve Africa’s endangered wildlife and wilderness areas through sustainable community upliftment initiatives.
