I've visited D'Kranji Farm Resort several times for family dinner at the D'Beer seafood restaurant, and once for a friend's chalet birthday celebration. D'Beer is famous for their "Lala" Bee Hoon and roasted suckling pig. Both are mouthwatering and will leave you craving for more. The resorts' rooms are extremely small and mosquitoes are buzzing everywhere, so be sure to arm yourself with insect repellent.
Apart from the food, D'Kranji is the perfect place for anyone craving respite from bustling city life. If you love the peace and tranquility of a rustic setting, a visit here is a must! You can spend your time fishing, strolling along the farm plantations, and simply soaking in the chill and laid-back kampong vibe.
The compound is tucked far away from Singaporean civilization and is inaccessible by public transport. Regardless, it is still a pretty place worth visiting, especially if city life is taking its toll on you.
This place is perfect for a one day staycation/escapade. It is situated in a super ulu(remote) part of Singapore and you should never consider this place if you do not have a car. In fact, from check-in to check-out to collecting your breakfast, it is done via a drive-thru guard house and it is perfect for couples looking for an exotic romp at a rate that will not break anything.
I checked-in late around 6.30pm, parked my car in my own villa with an automatic gate, combed the room and realised it is kinda dirty and has a chalet kinda vibe and decided to go to Jurong Point for the rest of the evening. The nicest part of the villa is the outside and the toilet with a partial open air area.
I gave the prawn fishing, the farm tour and the seafood restaurant a miss as i'm really unsure about the freshness of the food at a place that has nobody.
Breakfast was 2 nasi lemak packed in a styrofoam box and i had to collect it from the guard house when i was told previously they would be delivered.
If you are looking forward to absolute tranquility in this place with lush greenery and you were hoping for the sound of insects to sooth you to dreamland, DREAM ON. Sleeping here will not be possible till after 12. Loud cheesy singing and boom boom boom from the beer garden will accompany you the entire night till midnight. The songs are also old old old old chinese/hokkein/english songs like those you hear at a getai. In the morning, you will wake to the tune of construction and grass cutting at around 8am.
Oh, and my room was infested with ants that ate my 6 macaroons, boohoo. No mosquitoes though.
Having complained all of the above, i still had a great time as all that noise did not bother me and the place served the purpose i want it to serve. I really like the drive-thru check-in.
Quiet and private
I have never stayed in D'Kranji Farm Resort per se but had the privilege of exploring the entire grounds with tours of the different rooms for a review a while back.
The location of the place is pretty bad and without a car, you would have to rely on the shuttle bus service that the resort provides. However, it is because of the inaccessible location that there is absolute privacy and serenity.
There are different types of rooms available and all are pleasant, mostly with a 'backyard' where you can lounge in in the morning and overlook the fruit farm. There was also a prawning pond under renovation then but other than that, there is nothing to do around the resort.
One thing to take note is the amount of mosquitoes. A lot. Not kidding you. A lot.
