1) Lots of Fun Surprises
Whenever we go for a staycation or vacation, I'd show the kids in advance what our hotel and our room looks like to pique their interest. This time around, I purposely kept it a secret that we'll be staying in a themed family room because I meant to surprise them. Little did I know, I myself was in for a great surprise upon entering our room.
2) Rainforest Family Themed Rooms + Rooms for All Ages and Groups
Whilst I was able to keep our Ocean-themed room a secret from the kids prior to our visit, I wasn't able to hide from them the photos of the other two rooms. As of this writing, G is begging me to book the Jungle room next month while K voiced out her preference of the M&Ms room. Looks like we'll be coming back real soon.
It was actually our first time staying in a fun-filled themed room (that is if you don't count the Mickey Mouse room we stayed at Disney Hollywood Hotel because G was barely 2 y/o during our visit and still incapable of voicing out his opinion yet) and the kids are completely convinced that it is metaphorically cooler and literally more fun to stay in one.
Furthermore, the themed rooms also come with awesome picture window views. All rooms at the Rainforest offer quieter ambience created for guests looking to find solace in nature. What's there not to rave about and love? In my opinion, it is perfect for a getaway from the hustle and bustle of the busy and noisy city life.

D' Resort basically has something for every budget and occasion. As BBQ pits at the previous Costa Sands Resort have always been a hot favourite, it continues its BBQ tradition with more spacious BBQ pit areas to cater to bigger gatherings.
With the intent to provide holistic staycation experience, guests of D' Resort who are NTUC members get to enjoy unlimited free access to the well-known water park, Wild Wild Wet.

I have listed top eight perks above but actually there are many more perks in staying at D' Resort. I showed my colleague the photos taken during our stay and right there and then, she booked their next family staycation at www.dresort.com.sg. She was so happy to snagged the last available family-themed room. If I were you, get your credit card ready and book your room NOW before all the rooms get fully-booked. I guarantee you, your entire family are in for a delightful stay at D' Resort.
When your weekend is focused on your kids, you just have to wing it and cherish those few seconds of couple time. Yes, parents' photo opportunity counted as one. 😜 • • Thank you for the fun-filled weekend, D' Resort! We can't wait to visit again❣️#SMfavourites • • #DResortSG #DowntownEast #StayPlayShopEat
