Good Times at Viviana Mall, Thane

Malls are no longer a place people go only to shop.
They are a place where parents take their kids for a fun time, couples walk hand in hand, movie buffs catch the latest movies, foodies indulge in a variety of cuisine and fashionistas shop their hearts out while taking endless selfies all under one roof.

There's no dearth of malls in and around Mumbai, but there are only few that have stood the test of time and continued to be a favorite with the aam janta.
Viviana Mall in Thane is one such mall that has managed to become a favourite in a very short time.
Built on a 13 acre plot, Viviana Mall is spread over a million square feet and houses around 240 stores which include some of the biggest brands like Satya Paul, Zara, Splash, Reliance Trends, Forever 21, Bata, etc.

The Bata store in Viviana Mall is their biggest outlet in the country and is spread across 20,000 square feet.
Viviana Mall's major attraction is Cinepolis.

With 14 screens that feature 70 shows a day and a seating capacity of 2400 people, Cinepolis in Viviana Mall is one the largest multiplexes in the country. Viviana has partnered with Cinepolis to introduce India's first 4D Theatre which offers audience real simulation of effects like motion seats, water, wind, fog, lightening and scents that enhance the viewers overall movie experience.

It is currently showing the Jungle Book in 4D and I had the opportunity to catch it over the weekend.
The Jungle Book 4D experience was a memorable one and I recommend that you catch it before it goes off.
Viviana Mall has a sprawling food court spread over 40,000 sq.feet with a seating capacity of 2,400 people.

On the second level of the Viviana Mall is the family Entertainment centre - FunCity which has dashing cars, bowling alley, 32 arcade games and entertainment for toddlers and lots more.
On the rooftop of the first floor is a football court which can be booked for a fun game of football with your buddies.

Did you know that Viviana Mall is the only mall in Asia which is Visually Impaired friendly?
That's the sticker with the brail code-besides the black dot
Each store at the Viviana Mall has a special brail coded sticker at the entrance for visually impaired people to identify the names of the stores.
Also, each restaurant carries a  specially mechanized brail menu card  which reads the name of the dish on the menu, along with its ingredients and price, when you scroll over the menu card.

As a part of their CSR Activity, Viviana Mall has tied up with Xavier’s Resource Centre for the Visually Challenged (XRCVC) who conduct free computer classes and workshops for the visually impaired at the Viviana Mall itself. The purpose of this centre is to make blind and people with low vision participate actively and confidently in various educational and professional fields.

My visits to Viviana Mall have always been fun filled as I get to experience the best retail brands under one roof. It's two level ramp parking at the basement can accommodate 2400 cars and you never have to waste time finding a parking spot.

Have you been to the Viviana Mall? How was your experience?
