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.

  • The Iguazu falls were amazing.  Brazilia was also a real experience and is undersold - it is a really singular place to visit - the parliament and other buildings are…

Our Expert's Opinion

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.
