06th September, 2015: GayBombay’s Anniversary Picnic to Manor

Away from the clutter of concrete jungles, pollution and stress, GayBombay invites you to spend your day, at a resort that is just a couple of hours away from Mumbai at Manor, that can be truly called nature’s paradise. Tucked away in a valley of greenery, surrounded by majestic hills, on the confluence of two perennial rivers Vaitarna and Dehraja, lets meet old friend and make some new.

As you step in the resort, a wave of calmness engulfs you surrounded by lush green trees, beautifully landscaped gardens, manicured lawns and pathways. Its a 60 – acre splendour of greenery and serenity.

The Resort has a water park along with a large swimming pool, water slides, group slides and rain dance. An open-air ground to play cricket, soccer, volleyball, tennis, badminton and an indoor amusement arena for games like chess, table tennis, pool table, carom, cards and machine operating games.

If you are the spiritual kind, the Upvan at the confluence of the two rivers is the ultimate place for to meditate and find peace and solace within.
