Overview

every sensory relief you need

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.

Accommodation

Redefine the way you unwind

The Vivari Hotel & Spa by Mantis cocoons your best-self in 48 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.

Location

Vivari Hotel & Spa by Mantis brings you to Featherbrook, Johannesburg which lies between the Walter Sisulu Botanical Gardens and the Crocodile River.

The Cradle of Humankind, a UNESCO World Heritage Site is just a 30-minute drive away, where the Maropeng Visitor Centre, Wonder Cave, and the Sterkfontein Caves bear witness to some of the world’s oldest hominid fossils. Enjoy a boat ride and educational journey through the Tumulus building at Maropeng before exploring the caves where the 2 million-year-old Mrs Ples skull was excavated in 1947.

Nearby, the Rhino and Lion Nature Reserve is home to a total of 600 game representing 25 different species. Here you can enjoy game drives to see 4 of the Big Five with the exception of leopard, as well as crocodile, hippo, wild dog, and cheetah. Predators are kept in separate enclosures and visitors can watch them being fed.

Other attractions in and around Krugersdorp include the Robert Broom Museum, Krugersdorp Museum, African Fauna and Bird Park, Silverstar Casino, and Krugersdorp Golf Course. Other activities include paintball, helicopter rides, and hikes such as the Sugarbush Day Trail.

Bungee Mogale is an adventure centre that operates off Kings Kloof Bridge. Attempt a 50m bungee, enjoy a bridge swing, fly down the 320m foofy slide, walk along the hanging Burma Bridge, have fun at the adventure circuit, or relax at the restaurant and bar.

If you prefer something a little more leisurely, the Lemon Tree Organic Market is held every Saturday and offers a range of local food, crafts, and homemade products.
