While we love jetting away with our kids whenever we can, sometimes staying a little closer to home is exactly what we need – instant family bonding without the drama of travel. Enter the D’Resort @ Downtown East staycation: an eco-style resort where kid-friendly fun is absolutely the name of the staycay game. Throw in a seriously cool water park (this is Singapore’s first integrated water park resort!), nearby eXplorerkids indoor playground and the chance to go wildlife spotting, and you have yourself a cheeky little getaway the whole gang are going to love. Oh, and did we mention we’re offering the chance for two families to WIN a weekend D’Resort adventure of their own, with Wild Wild Wet tickets thrown in for good measure? Read on for the deets…
The staycation: D’Resort @ Downtown East
Because we like to get the lowdown on all the fun stuff around Singapore on your behalf, we took ourselves off for our own little staycation at D’Resort @ Downtown East with the family in tow, all in the name of research. Was it a hit? Absolutely! With its spiffy family rooms (plenty of room to fit our crew of five – including a teenager and his gangly limbs), super friendly staff, eco-feel environment and small touches that made a big difference (we LOVED the treasure box in the room for the kids to crack), this was one overnight adventure the whole family loved. And not only is this Singapore’s first nature-inspired resort – complete with its own urban garden – it comes with an integrated water park experience to boot. Hurrah!
The wild and wet adventure: Wild Wild Wet
If you haven’t been to Wild Wild Wet recently, then you need to add it to your ‘must try with kids’ checklist, stat! It recently got a huge makeover and has transformed from a great day out with the family to a cracking, splashin’ hub of water excellence everyone in the gang will love! The brave kids (and grown ups!) on the block can test steely nerves hurtling down the new star players, Vortex, Free Fall and Royal Flush, while smaller tots (and the less brave) will still have a whale of a time trying out the scaled down, less terrifying slides in the Kidz Zone. Old faves are still there too: bob around the lazy Shiok River on an enormous unicorn float, jump the surf in the wave pool, and then throw the whole gang onto an inflatable raft and tackle the thrills ‘n’ spills of the Ular-Lah family-ride.
