Vivari Hotel & Spa by Mantis
A Mantis Hotel Experience
Temporary closure to avoid the impact of COVID-19
Dear Valued Client
The nature of our hospitality offering is one of personal service for your ultimate well-being.
Our health and beauty facilities remain sanitized at surgical standards at all times, and our hotel staff have been practising the best hygiene protocol throughout our operations, more so under the threat of COVID-19.
With all these procedures in place; we have had to make the difficult decision to close Vivari Hotel & Spa by Mantis from Saturday 21st March to protect the health of our staff and clients. We will advise of the re-opening date once we have more information on the state of the Novel Coronavirus from the Department of Health.
All Vivari hotel and Spa Guests, please note that we are unable to fulfil any reservations from the 21st of March until further notice. We apologise if these changes cause inconvenience.
We are optimistic that following all social distancing protocol as prescribed by our government and global health authorities will help to desist the spread of COVID-19 and are looking forward to re-opening with a healthy team and a safe environment for all.

Best-self-centred; VIVARI Hotel & Spa invites you to pick and choose every sensory relief that you need. Complete best-self actualisation in beautiful suites, zen surroundings, medical aesthetic and spa treatments complemented by good-for-you food.
See your better self in woody gardens with calming water bodies and visual inspirations ranging from a giant Buddha statue, arty installations and beautiful bedrooms with lush finishes. leafy pathways take you to introspective moments between the trees.
Allow yourself to touch velvet-feel stucco walls, envelope your body in 680-thread count linens, and place your tired limbs in the hands of expert spa therapists. The VIVARI unveils your best-self through Dr Anushka Reddy’s expert treatments at the Medi-sculpt aesthetics clinic and VIVARI aesthetics surgery.
Listen to what your best-self needs. Let the sounds of VIVARI renew your mind. Birdsong, rambling river water and signature soundtracks create an atmosphere of complete wellness. Take note of the good advice you will hear while here; tips to keep well, do good, and nurture your best self.
All in good taste. The VIVARI way to good living involves a lot of nutritious foods and drinks. Every social, un-conference, and pamper space has a specialised menu designed to fulfil the body, mind, and spirit. Harvest tables to eat or juice, loose-leaf teas, and bean-to-cup eco brews. All sustainably sourced and thoughtfully prepared.
Did you know? Smell is the only sense that affects the memory and emotion part of your brain. VIVARI signature room scents lift your mood and create a sublime vibe in your private space; raw early morning aromas beckon you to yoga in the natural wood garden. Fresh herb- and fruit-infused water drinks unleash your creativity and get you ready to un-conference.
Redefine the way you unwind
The Vivari Hotel & Spa by Mantis cocoons your best-self in 49 rooms & suites in Zen, Nandi and Orissa: three rest zones set across the woody estate. Each a private oasis, the rooms are a sophisticated blend of natural textures of wood, leather and marble with opulent accents of steel and copper. The contemporary décor is arranged in a simplistic layout that is brought to life by royal colours and touchy-feely textures.
