Revolutionising Wellness: Vivari Blends Luxury Hotel Amenities with Cutting-Edge Cosmetic Surgery

The boutique hotel and aesthetic clinic takes an integrated approach to wellness, helping redefine medical tourism in South Africa

By Your Luxury

Offering a tranquil facility alongside cutting-edge cosmetic surgery options, Vivari is a luxurious hotel and hospital that has rebranded medical tourism in South Africa. The premises feature the country’s first five-star hotel with a Department of Health-accredited day hospital. A vision and concept of Dr Anushka Reddy, who is a well-respected and award-winning female doctor in the speciality of aesthetic medicine, available procedures include breast augmentation or reduction, liposuction, the Brazilian butt lift and a tummy tuck. Vivari Aesthetics is also the only facility in South Africa that will offer the Weight Doctors sleeve, a German concept which is a non-surgical treatment for obesity.

A true pioneer, Vivari is the only facility in South Africa that offers Vaser liposculpture. This procedure sculpts the body as desired, to create an hourglass figure, six-pack or toned thighs. Renuvion laser skin tightening is an additional service which alleviates the need to cut excess skin and prevent scar formation. Both procedures are performed at the same time. Another flagship offering is one of the latest nonsurgical weight loss treatments called endoscopic sleeve gastrectomy. This involves using a gastroscope to reduce the size of the stomach and does not require any incisions.

What sets Vivari apart however is its comprehensive approach to health and patient care. Vivari Aesthetics – Institute for Surgical Excellence boasts a state-of-the-art hospital with a well-known team of plastic surgeons to conduct procedures. To speed up the healing process, Vivari Aftercare caters for busy businesspersons and celebrities and provides hyperbaric oxygen therapy, IV nutritional therapy with high doses of vitamin C and most importantly lymphatic drainage massage. Luxurious hotel rooms located closest to the theatre are dedicated to post-surgical aftercare with ergonomic beds and 24-hour nursing care.

Vivari medical concierge is available to sort out all requests for international patients as well as for patients who have their surgeries elsewhere but wish to make use of the Vivari Aftercare facilities. Hotel guests also have the option to have non-surgical cosmetic procedures like fillers and Botox with the resident doctor, Anushka Reddy. With their integrated approach to wellness, Vivari isn’t just a clinic or spa or just a hotel. Their approach considers five important elements of holistic health, nutrition, fitness, spa and aesthetic beauty.

Whether it’s part of an aftercare programme or a relaxing day visit, guests have access to an award-winning spa, a bamboo-facing hydrotherapy suite with a steam room, an ice fountain, a heated vitality pool and an infrared sauna cabin. The premises also have a mineral swimming pool, yoga studio and gym. Dining options include Brambles Restaurant which follows a farm-to-table ethos and serves seasonal menus with organic produce, the Pécan Pool Bar which offers more casual dining in the form of fresh salads, wholesome sandwiches and hand-stretched pizzas straight from its clay pizza oven, and a spectacular rooftop lounge and bar.

The hotel is located a mere 15 min drive from Lanseria airport, 40 min from Sandton and Pretoria and 45 min from OR Tambo airport. Shuttle services are available.
