Perched on a tranquil hillside nearly 4,000ft above sea level, in verdant surroundings, the Jiva Spa at Vivanta by Taj Madikeri has been built according to an unusual design, offering stunning views of the rainforest across three levels. 

Spread over 30,000sq ft, the architecture resonates with the rich culture and traditions of Coorg. The spa is well-equipped with private treatment suites with their own steam baths and showers, a relaxation deck and wellness café.

The unique signature Jiva experience — the Gudda Bath — draws from a local tradition, where the water used for bathing at home is heated in a Gudda or copper vessel on a wood fire. This sensorial experience has been recreated at the spa, starting with a traditional massage using a luxurious signature treatment, followed by a bath amid the sumptuous rainforest. Yoga retreats are also available.
