    Hi, everyone. I am Seema from Mumbai, and I have come across a place named Anand Resort Virar. The place looks ideal where adults and children can have some fun, and with the holiday coming round the corner its the best time to visit.

    I would like some information about the Anand Resort Virar entry fees and what the entry fee charges include. As I know some resorts don't include usage of their water facilities and food.

A three-star property, the Anand Resort boasts of its own swimming pools and accommodations, plus a myriad of other facilities. It's a great day outing resort, especially for those coming in from Mumbai or Nashik. It's an alternative as well for those who cannot afford the higher end resorts in the area. In this guide, we would highlight the entry fees for the Anand Resort in Virar, along with other essential information you might need.

    Location

    The Anand Resort is located in Arnala in Virar West. It is located about 70 kilometres away to the north of Mumbai. It is also just 170 kilometres away to the southwest of Nashik.

The Arnala Public Beach is located adjacent to the resort too, within walking distance from the property. The nearest railway station is the Virar Railway Station, which is merely eight kilometres away from the resort. You can easily ride an auto rickshaw from the railway station to the resort.

    Vibe

    Nestled in lush greenery comprising of banana plantations and coconut trees, the Anand Resort takes you away from the concrete jungles of the city. There are two main swimming pools, one is suitable for adults while the other is suitable for kids. Various slides and a fun waterfall area add to the fun vibe of the resort. The main building where the rooms are located is a simple two-storey structure. The rooms are very basic in design, with either whitewashed or coloured walls and tiled flooring. Overall, the vibe is very natural, in lieu with the theme of the resort which provides for a refreshing change especially for those coming from busy cities.

    Swimming Pool

    The resort has two main swimming pools that guests can access, they are located just next to each other. The smaller and shallower one is suitable for children. It is flanked by two slides, a wide one that three guests can slide in together and a narrower one. Then, you have the larger and deeper swimming pool which is more suitable for teens and adults. It has two slides as well, a wide one that three guests can slide in together at the same time and a narrow almost spiral one.
