The Sanchaya in Bintan Island, Indonesia

Our diverse, uber-luxurious collection of 21 light and airy villas and nine suites afford sweeping views of the shimmering ocean, lush gardens and a serene man-made lagoon anchoring the estate’s Thai-themed Lawan Village. Bathed in neutral, crisp and earthy tones, the villas and suites range from an ample 55 square meters to a capacious 1,045 square meters, boasting verandas, balconies and terraces, open-style bathrooms with separate Lefroy Brooks soaking tubs and showers, and walk-in closets. In addition to the super king size beds, polished parquet floors and Chinese-style cabinets, each villa and suite is adorned with carefully selected, rare pieces of art and furnishings, inviting a glimpse into the captivating histories and cultures of Southeast Asia. And to further pay tribute to Southeast Asia’s diversity, villas are named after various emblematic flowers from different countries. No two villas or suites are alike; each exudes its own distinct character and charm. Explore the categories of the villas and suites as you begin to choose the canvas of your luxurious escape.

Set on the pristine sands of Lagoi Bay, the luxurious Sanchaya Bintan is a short transfer from Singapore. From Changi International Airport, it takes 15 minutes to Tanah Merah Ferry Terminal, where high-speed ferries are waiting to whisk guests to the island in 45 minutes. The Sanchaya is the only property on Bintan with its own VIP lounge in the terminal, specially created to ensure guests enjoy a seamless arrival and departure experience. Express immigration and customs clearance is handled by The Estate Artisans. Registration takes place prior to arrival in The Sanchaya Lounge at Bandar Bentan Telani Ferry Terminal, a mere 15-minute drive from the property.

My friend Denise and I had a wonderful stay at the Sanchaya . Highly professional from first contact , everything was organised to make our stay stress free , starting from arrival at the ferry terminal in Singapore . This is a small luxury resort for the discerning traveller without pretention. The resort itself is stunningly elegant with a relaxed vibe . Architecture and furnishings have been carefully chosen to be aesthetically pleasing as well as practically providing comfort and convenience. We stayed on the beach side , which of course is preferential . It is wonderful to catch the seabreezes and hear the waves at night. The local landscape is idyllic with white beaches and turquoise water . We saw and heard colourful tropical birds and loved that there was a vegetable garden on site. The food was delicious , breakfast is the best i have ever had anywhere . So much choice and the presentation is amazing. The smiling , friendly staff are delightful and always offering their assistance. I believe this proactive approach to hospitality is reinforced by the GM Magnus Olovson who was warm and welcoming , interacting regularly with all guests, providing personal service and thereby making everyone feel special. Nothing it seems , is too much trouble at the Sanchaya.

We stayed in 2016 at the Sanchaya and it‘s still the bechmark for seemingly effortless, tranquil luxury in the boutique hotel segment (despite the fact that we stayed at a number of those since then. What really makes the difference is the well-trained staff, which is highly attentive but not giving the impression of following a handbook as it is the case in some of the larger luxury hotels. It should be mentioned that also the supervising of staff works perfectly (e.g. F&B responsible Stefan) in case there is anything which comes close to a misunderstanding / issue. Needless to say that the property and furniture is beyond beautiful.

My amazing wife took me to The Sanchaya for my 50th birthday as a surprise. And what an amazing surprise it was! I was blown away right from the personalised greeting getting off the ferry from Singapore. We were ushered swiftly through immigration, our bags were collected while we had a relaxing tea in the Sanchaya lounge. Then we drove the 10 minutes to the Sanchaya. The immediate impression was that there was an amazing attention to detail in putting this resort together. Everything was just beautiful and so thoughtfully styled. Our room was incredibly comfortable. All of the staff were amazing, so friendly and attentive without being over the top. The quality of all the amenities, top notch. The meals were all divine and the pre-dinner canapés and cocktails just the way to slip into a superb evening, night after night. If you are looking to get away for a few romantic nights, or just need a relax, go here, it's awesome!

Thank you so much for a fantastic stay! We came here for a short break and had a great time relaxing on the beach and enjoying the view. The staff were most welcoming and helpful. Especially when the staff seem to really take interest in getting to know us and making conversations. I am very grateful that Mr Turzo came to welcome us at the entrance to the hotel and to receive instructions for the cake. Mr Ichisan, Mr Abibi and Miss Meggy were particularly friendly and made our short stay very pleasant and felt as if we had been in the place for a long time. The resort is very quiet, its great for a escape from the crowd and to have some time to switch off. Thank you very much for the wonderful time. will see you all again very soon!

We spent five absolutely glorious days at the Sanchaya for a well overdue break, and could not have chosen a more perfect destination. The estate is the most beautiful spot you could ever hope to find. Believe every stellar review you read and disregard any negative ones, we could not fault any aspect of this wonderful place. The suites, pool area, beach and grounds were breathtaking, food was to die for. The most impressive aspect of The Sanchaya is the service. This establishment should be used as a benchmark for for any other hotel or hospitality provider to aspire to. Impeccable service across the board from the most beautiful and genuine people you could ever hope to meet in your travels. We were quite simply blown away, and this only enhanced our already wonderful stay. In particular we were so well looked after by Rozzy, Abib, Ischan, Guruh and Elisa, to name but a few. Magnus as manager of the estate was an ever present, ever accomodating delightful host. We would love to return with our family so they can experience the pure delights of this gorgeous estate. Sanchaya staff take a bow, you are fields ahead in the world of hospitality. May we experience the delight again.
