Escape to a bygone era at The Sanchaya
When you disembark from the Tanah Merah Ferry it is evident that The Sanchaya is not simply an Indonesian resort. Located on the island of Bintan, The Sanchaya is a true study of the cultures, lives, and histories of the Asian people. From the moment you step onto the opulent grounds your senses are whisked through an exotic adventure, where you may explore Thailand and Indonesia, Vietnam and Laos, without leaving this exclusive resort.
Your journey will begin with a tour of the Great House. This picturesque Colonial home truly represents a time when the British occupied the area, bringing their stately manse and ideas with them. The 1940’s style architecture is made that much more alluring when adorned with artefacts and artwork related to 7 different Asian countries. Explore the many indoor and outdoor sitting areas and relax in the salon with a choice beverage. Gourmand guests will appreciate The Sanchaya’s epicurean cheese tasting, paired with the finest wines available.
The Sanchaya’s attention to detail can be seen throughout each of its 21 private villas and 9 suites. From the spacious living spaces to the exotic décor and luxurious bedding you may never want to leave your room. Each residence offers a private balcony or veranda with a view of the magnificent sea or The Sanchaya’s own lavish tropical gardens. Accommodations include all of the modern amenities you could possibly desire, with a wine and chocolate bar for added indulgence.
Four intricate dining venues await you at The Sanchaya. This is your vacation, as such you are able to eat and drink at your leisure. The staff is ready and waiting to prepare a culinary delight for you any hour of the day or night. Enjoy a time-honoured meal on fine china in the dining room, or even a traditional afternoon tea service. The Tasanee Grill offers a gorgeous poolside al fresco setting with delicious Thai inspired dishes. Relive the grandeur of colonial gentility in the bar, where martinis and cigars are delivered with impeccable taste. Lose yourself in a great novel while sipping an aperitif in the salon and library, or step onto the terrace and enjoy the finest Indonesian tobacco smoked through a long pipe.
If activity suits you on any particular day, take part in one of the many worldly games available. Spend your afternoon as an aristocrat playing croquet or practicing your archery skills while sipping cocktails. Enjoy a sunrise yoga session, take a swim in the 50 meter saltwater infinity pool, or burn off some of those cocktail calories at the fully equipped gymnasium. When you are ready to pamper yourself, visit The Sanchaya Spa, for a Thai, Swedish, Balinese, or Signature massage.
For a getaway to remember, experience one of The Sanchaya’s unique vacation packages. Choose from retreats aimed at health or romance, golf, weddings, or business. Each package includes shuttle or limousine service to and from the island, butler services, complimentary drinks, a la carte breakfast, and turn down services. The Sanchaya staff are waiting to create a bespoke experience unique to your desires.
