Vivaz Hotel Resort is a cheerful property with a range of facilities offering accommodation to visitors to the Iguazú Falls.

Vivaz Cataratas Hotel Resort is situated on the Brazilian side of Iguazú Falls, short drive from  the town of Foz do Iguaçu,  the local airport and the National Park, wherein lie the stupendous tropical waterfalls.

It’s a bright and cheerful property surrounded by large, attractive grounds and has a wide range of facilities making it ideal for families. The original idea was for it to look like Rio's Maracanã football stadium, but lately it has been transformed to feature simple contemporary décor and floor-to-ceiling windows.

A mid-sized property for the area with 170 guest rooms, the hotel is fairly low rise: there are just three floors. The big circular pool and bar are great spots to relax in after day at the falls. There’s a breakfast room offering the usual comprehensive Brazilian buffet, a main meal restaurant, eco-trails, a tennis court and mini-golf. The Aquaparque (Water Park) is close by, great fun for kids with slides, inner tyres to float in and fake rapids. Adults may gravitate to the spa and beauty salon.

What our clients say

  • Highlight?: Diversity of wildlife in Brazil. The Iguacu Falls. Swimming in the Rio Negro. Seeing a Sloth. The whole journey was a trip of a lifetime.

    JW, Isle of Islay
  • Most Memorable Moment?: We were lucky enough to have a major thunder storm overnight at the Iguazu falls and these were unbelievably spectacular the next day.  Also the Lencois Marahenas was utterly beautiful and quite different to anything else we saw.

    KT, Andover
  • Highlight?: Days in Olinda during Carnaval practice.  Delta cruise from Parnaiba and 5 days in Jeri.

    JI, Orpington
  • Rio - the ultimate party city. The Pantanal - fascinating wildlife. Iguacu - Wow ! And the Andes - Incredible. We ran out of superlatives to describe what we were seeing.

    PM, Stamford Brook
  • Iguazu Falls, both sides spectacular, getting a flavour of Rio and being taken such good care of as a single traveller.

    MB, Thatcham
  • Where to start? The World Cup match in Salvador, the old town of Salvador itself, swimming with wild dolphins in Praia de Pipa, watching monkeys play at breakfast, piranha fishing then feeding caimans in the Pantanal, playing football on Copacabana beach, seeing Christ the Redeemer for the first time, dancing in Rio Sanarium, all the Brazilian people we met who were so friendly. The best holiday we have ever been on.

Kathryn backpacked across Argentina, Chile, Bolivia and Peru before joining us. She has a degree in Philosophy and French and is a keen netball player.

I loved Vivaz’s vibrant character and friendly staff. The inviting pool and tropical grounds lend a real holiday vibe to the place so after visiting the falls I’d recommend planning a free afternoon by the pool into your itinerary.
