Passage Asia enters the African market through strategic collaboration with Vivari Hotel & Spa

Passage Asia chooses South Africa as their first destination in Africa to offer to their international clientele seeking quality medical care and wellness experience

Kuala Lumpur, 1 OCTOBER 2022 PASSAGE ASIA and VIVARI HOTEL AND SPA announced today that the two parties have entered into a strategic collaboration that will offer a stress-free international travel for health care and wellness for those seeking to improve their quality of life and wellbeing in South Africa, a destination synonymous with exotic wildlife and ancient culture.

The collaboration brings together PASSAGE ASIA, a leading international patient care management service provider based in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia and VIVARI HOTEL AND SPA, in Johannesburg, South Africa, the only one of its kind in the country to incorporate a state-of-the-art aesthetic clinic and hospital as part of its offering.

“It has always been a part of our global expansion plan to explore the opportunity to reach out to partners or collaborators in select international destinations to cater to the needs of our clients that come from different parts of the world,” said Hanim Shukor, CEO of PASSAGE ASIA. “We caught up with Dr Anushka and was suitably impressed with their vision to offer their guests access to select aesthetic and non-surgical treatment and the chance to recuperate in a luxurious and private environment complete with professional aftercare service. Coupled with the chance to explore South Africa’s exotic safaris and cultural diversity, we’re quite sure this would be a popular choice for our discerning international guests.’

“Travelling from far and wide, our guests who come to receive treatment or just to relax would definitely appreciate the tranquility, elegant luxury and pampering service we offer at Vivari,” said Dr Anushka Reddy, Director at Vivari Hotel & Spa. “Wanting to share this and our experience in delivering quality aesthetics treatments, we reach out to Passage Asia to offer our services to their international clientele. We’re confident that our strategic collaboration would extend our market reach and enable Passage Asia to offer a new destination for medical tourism.”

The overall experience at Vivari Hotel and Spa is further enhanced by Vivari AfterCare, a private, modern, and tranquil post-operative recovery centre that offers a wonderful place to recover while remaining near to guests’ physician and loved ones. Their licensed medical practitioners are specifically trained in providing customised aftercare nursing and post-operative care regimens.
