“Hidden gem of a resort in Kranji Farm”
Reviewed 13 October 2013 via mobile

Received an email invite last night to an open house today at this Resort in Kranji. Yeah !! Resort in Kranji. Coincidentally I saw a TV advert on CH 8 as well. Seemed interesting.

Arrived at 10 am with family in tow. It was a bit of a drive from Kranji /Sungei Kadut but scenic once you pass the Kranji Reservoir. As a Singaporean totally embarrassed at what I didn't know was in Kranji Countryside. Farms that still retain the lost parts of history, rural and rustic with the laid back charm of the 60' & 70's.

There's Sungei Buloh, Hays Dairies, Haussman Aquarium, Garden Asia , Bollywood veggies , Quail Farm, Frog Farm & A Resort called Dkranji Farm Resort.

The Open House was a pleasant surprise. It was packed but nicely managed. We had a valet service totally free of charge. The kids had a go at free game stalls, free prizes and all. There was free Beer, yup and Free lunch by the in house restaurant and cafe.

What really impressed us was although there was no pork or lard for the food, they actually made extra dishes for the Muslim visitors. How thoughtful is that.

The Emcee had the kids and adults bond over family games.

We felt the staff deserve a good pat on the back. They spoke well and they were so helpful especially Concierge Gabriel & Tika , they were so friendly and accommodating . special mention to Warren for showing us around the resort personally .

What we totally loved was the little huts and cottages , some even have a jacuzzi inside. Wow.

Finally special thanks to this lady Selina. She went out of her way to explain their loyalty program that was launched today. Great value for money as when you buy the vouchers for use within the Resort, you get a free membership card that gives you discount at the various outlets and activities but also gives you a complimentary stay and discounts off their conference and event spaces. For a $1000 dollars, we get to use the vouchers , membership card and stay for a full year.

We booked our stay at the Family Suite on the spot and got a 20% discount using the membership card.

Dkranji Farm Resort , where and why have you hidden yourself till now.

Great place, fantastic staff and great things to do. Keep it up.

Just a quick review.

Pro : Quiet, secluded, privacy.

Con : Expensive(BBQ Pit for 4 hour, rental S$85?!! 6 small dish with one coke cost S$117, too faraway from mainroad(Taxi will not want to come in after 7pm, i tried and no taxi accept my booking. Guess they are scare that come in drop off the guess and has one unexpected "Guest" follow them back, as it 5 min away to the Cemetery. Haha

Conculsion, Meant for people who drive, family gathering(if you don't mind bug and flies). But TAKE NOTE, each villa can only take in 2 Adult maximum. if you plan of 3 sharing a bed then sorry, unless you are real thin.

Room Tip: Request room that is far from the Restaurant.

ARE YOU KIDDING ME? Previous 3 TA posters who award this property with Excellent 5 rating must have gotten lucky or was I too strict on criterias? There is no peace with the blaring music at night. The term "relatively clean" is an understatement. And quoting that the room is 35sq feet is a misjudgement. 35sq METREs is typical room size for a 4-5 Start Hotel and definitely not here at D'Kranji. Read on!

Skip the main gate. Head for the drive through check-in lane. Get out of the car as the drive-thru counter is too high and you would also be required to sign necessary documents for a robotic check-in. You will be issued a key as well as the gate remote control to your unit.

Despite not being a beach resort, the room was sandy. The air-con was stale. The docking system was disconnected. WIFI detected on gadgets but with zero signal. You may just wonder if the bed held the possibility of bedbugs. The washroom found corners filled with green or black moss, just as the sink or amenities plastic container is. The housekeeping was apparently negligent with this room as even some amenity boxes was positioned with the words facing the wall instead of the user. And I say once more, its not 35 sqm give and take the terribly worn out balcony.

For SGD 238 a night, this place is a fluke. The room has barely space for walking. With no exaggeration, the parking lot allocated for each unit is larger than the room. The shaky balcony chair is also a far cry from the actual product. Major issue here is the maintenance and cleanliness. For the same price, you would be better off in boutique/small hotels in Clark/Robertson Quay. Once again, the blaring 70s-80s music from the open concept bar will keep you till midnight.

Come here only if you wish to go prawning and visit the nearby farms. Then take a shower and head home to sleep. Avoid the bed especially if you have children with you. This is the best place for them to get rashes or something.

Also, if you are dining at the Chinese Restaurant, remember to have the Chef go easy on the oil. The best service and interaction received in the entire "resort" was from the convenience store. The store lady was most helpful.

Room Tip: There is no such thing as a good room here until they fix their cleanliness standards.

Went for a weekend getaway find this
place is quite clean and comfortable with a personal parking space which meet my expectation. Pleasant experience as it is away from the city. The service that was given to me by their concierge shah was amazing. He was professional, affable and accommodating to sum it up it was a good experience.

Bought this deal off Groupon before reading all the negative reviews which came as a blessing in disguise. Firstly, the staff were VERY FRIENDLY! I brought up my concerns to them after reading the bad reviews but they assured me of a good stay. I booked the room to celebrate my anniversary and the staff made all the arrangements! From cake to wine! I like the fact that we have our own parking space, the room was a good size and the toilers were relatively clean. I basically had nothing to complain about. When I booked this room,my boyfriend absolutely loved it as well!

Bought this deal from Groupon and making reservation was hassle free. Just that I don't understand why they ask into details for my credit card when I already made the full payment with Groupon. Place was decent but the location of the resort is really away from the city. I would suggest to drive instead. As it is a farm, do expect insects... Room is really small! Like a 35sq feet? Breakfast was hearty. We opt for the 60 mins prawning but it was a completely waste of time. Spent 60mins catch nothing except 1 dead prawn. Overall, for the price we paid, is acceptable. Will come here again if there's another deal.

My wife, 11 month old toddler and I decided to do this staycation as part of training to get used to travelling with a baby.

The surrounding farms beyond the resort were fairly interesting (see my other reviews). The resort offered little. The queen room (paid >$200 for 1 night over the Easter weekend) was small. The attached bath was decent and all rooms had their own private parking space. The air-conditioner and fridge did not work as well as we wanted. The stairs in the room made it a bit unsafe for the baby.

Construction work went on next to our room beyond check-in time. The resort offered a few ponds for prawning, an adjacent fruit/vegetable farm for tours, small convenience store, open stage karaoke and a decent looking Chinese restaurant(didn't try). Complimentary breakfast was very simple.

Customer support was lacking and they should provide a map and introduction package to the resort.

This place offers an alternative, "kampung" experience but sadly, was of poor value. I would visit this part of Singapore via car, without the overnight stay.
