Revisiting D'Resort @ Downtown East & Wild Wild Wet + GIVEAWAY!

Media Invite

Has it already been 4 years? D'Resort @ Downtown East re-opened in 2015 after a massive makeover and 4 years later, we were back for a 1-night staycation... this time with the monkies' grandparents.

Back then we stayed in a rainforest-themed room which came with a bunk bed for the boys. This time around, we decided to go for the classic chalet stay in one of the resort's Beach Cove units.

The Beach Cove rooms are closest to Pasir Ris beach and come in two bedding options - 2 queen-sized beds or 4 single beds.

The room comes with standard amenities like a fridge, TV and microwave. Yes, there's free WiFi too.

One great thing about the Beach Cove rooms is it has age-friendly features to better accommodate seniors like railings for support and a stool in the bathroom. Which is great news for my parents! But do note that such rooms are only available upon request, on a first-come, first-served basis.

The BBQ pits are located just outside the rooms so it's perfect for those huge gatherings with family and friends.

However, do note that the pits are not included in the room reservation pricing, and are subject to availability. You will have to book a pit separately after booking your room.

There are also activities galore within and around the resort - renting a bicycle is a good start.

Espeically since resort guests can access a back gate which leads directly to Pasir Ris Beach!

But the monkies had different ideas.

4 years ago, we had also paid Wild Wild Wet a visit and it seemed that all of the previous rides are still present.

But there has been a huge change since then - it has nearly doubled in size with the addition of many new water slides and play areas!

In addition to the Professor's Playground (or huge water playground for kids), the new Splash Play is specifically catered for younger kids. Here, the little ones can slosh around the low water with fun jets and water sprays.

For older kids, there are four new water slides with varying thrill factors.

The Vortex (red & orange slide) is Singapore's first high-speed 360° extreme loops ride which lets riders get sucked into a world of extreme turns and curves at absolute break-neck speeds!

The Free Fall (yellow slide) is one of Asia's longest free fall water slides where you can take the plunge down a near-vertical drop at speeds of up to 50 feet per second. Phew!

Or if you are highly competitive, go for the Kraken Racers (green & blue slide) which allows up to 4 racers zip down the slide lanes to earn bragging rights.

One new ride which we didn't get to try was the Royal Flush as it was under maintenance.

And what about kids who are between 3 and 12 years old? They have a brand new water play space to call their own - Kidz Zone!

The water slides found here are replicas of the usual bigger water slides, but in a pint-sized version just for kids!

So this means that the slides are not as steep and terrifying as the actual-sized ones. No wonder Ale went on the slides so many times. LOL.

And if I thought one whole afternoon of fun at the water park would tire the monkies out, who am I kidding? Because they could absolutely NOT pass up the chance to zip around in a go-kart!

Located at Begonia Open Air Carpark, electric go-karting is available every Friday from 6pm to 9pm, and Saturday and Sunday from 2pm to 9pm.

The circuit is pretty small and straightforward, while the go-karts' top speed can be curbed for younger kids so I reckon it to be an extremely kid-friendly activity for families.

The standard price is $10 for 3 rounds while NTUC card members & kids pay $8 for 3 rounds.

Oh, and did I mention that Downtown East is also home to a 6-hall cineplex, 32-lane bowling alley, Tayo Station indoor playground, and more than 60 retail shops and F&B outlets? Time to plan a staycation with the family this June school holidays then! 😉

Wish I get to bring my two kids for a full day fun of water splashing and soaking. Poor them, they only get to soak in a store bought round water tub with their duck float as companions.
