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.

We had a pleasant time at the Sanchaya. We were staying in the Junior suite, which captures an incredible view of the aquamarine beach. Our room had an industrial design, embellished with sophisticated and antique style furniture and decorations. We spent our afternoon at the pool side with an aromatic cup of Javanese coffee and in the evening, we enjoyed a savory 4-course Indonesian meal. At night, we enjoyed a wide range of movie and music selections from the room’s iPad-tv catalogue, however there were some moments where the Wi-fi connection would just disappear, which interrupted the streaming a bit. A great selection of herbal teas and coffee were also offered. And finally, the bed and pillows gave us a restful night’s sleep. In the morning, we opted for a Japanese style breakfast, the food’s flavor was soft and sweet, however the sizing was too small, nevertheless the service was overall smooth and efficient. During the day we went for a therapeutic Balinese Massage, the service was very relaxing, and the masseuses were also attentive and thoughtful. Overall, Mr. Magnus and his team has truly captured our hearts with their outstanding hospitality and passionate service. どうもありがとうございました

3 nights at the Sanchaya proved to exceed expectations in every way. Our thanks go to Magnus Olovson and his team who ensured that every possible holiday luxury was provided before we could even dream of it. Attention to detail at the Sanchaya is beyond first class; this was provided seamlessly by every member of staff in a genuine bid to ensure our holiday was everything we wanted it to be. This meant everyone front of house went out of their way to engage personally with us remembering our names, whilst making us feel welcome in a way we have never encountered at any other luxury property we have visited. The estate is stunningly beautiful, the views from our terrace (Sea view Junior Suite main house) made it hard to believe we were actually in Bintan. The Sanchaya is immersion in luxury, but the real bespoke element of the hotel is not just the exquisite design, it is the people behind the name; their genuine commitment and desire to excel makes the Sanchaya more than just another luxury hotel in paradise. Our special thanks go to Jeroon (Sommelier) for his time, to our Blo Kart teacher who seemed to enjoy teaching us to wind sail on the beach as much as we enjoyed learning and to the dining team who could not do enough to ensure our nightly dinners were perfectly delivered. The Sanchaya is beyond beautiful, a fabulous weekend, we hope to return!

My husband and I brought our 4 month old here for our family's first getaway. The resort provided service beyond what we expected. We had a baby cot, baby bath, sterilizer and clean bottled water all arranged. The staff knew us by name and treated us with so much hospitality we felt pampered. The food was amazing, we could have been at breakfast for the whole day with the variety and quality food they offered. The rooms were perfectly maintained. The spa was a decadent experience. We couldn't have asked for more, already planning our next trip back!

Perfect wkend getaway: White beach, awesome pool, relaxing massage, beautiful suite and bathroom, delicious food from the grill, extremely friendly and helpful staff, and a fun night of wine tasting and chatting with sommelier Jeroen at the Library! The staff at Sanchaya understands and cares for your every needs, from the smallest thing such as a champagne glass, sunscreen and fresh aloe vera for your sunburn, a small reminder note, a follow up call to ask if the room is big enough, a personal message to see how you are doing, to your activity of the day. They made me feel like I am at home. My only complaint is the junior suite is way too small, so changed to the Sanchaya Suite. Also their firm pillow is still way too soft, suggest to buy new firm ones for light sleepers like me :/ I would recommend 3D2N at least :) Definitely coming back, I miss Bintan already!!

We’ve been living in Singapore for over a decade and have tried several hotels for short breaks including Phuket (Point Yamu at Como, Amanpuri), the small islands off Bintan (Nikoi and Joyo island) as well as Langkawi and of course Bali. All of these feel rushed even for two nights, door-to-door 5-6 hours of travel and impossible for one night. We tried The Sanchaya last week, having never given Bintan a chance as we heard it was mostly 3-4 Star Hotels. Well it was amazing. We left in a Saturday morning on the 9 am ferry leaving home at 7:45 am. We arrived at 10 am and we were whisked through a special immigration queue then the Gorgeous Sanchaya lounge, then a ten minute drive to the hotel in time for a leisurely breakfast. Door to door it was less than three hours. It was a Breeze. We stayed in room 9 which is in a quiet corner... with a large balcony. it is a suite, and absolutely gorgeous... the interior design is elegant and everything is so well thought out. Two bathrooms, a large living room and bedroom. The sheets and bedding were divine. We loved the breakfast menus, and the Thai restaurant was great too. We also tried some nibbles poolside. The only improvement I would suggest is a better selection of Rose but the cocktails are wonderful. The GM Magnus is very personable and funny, he stopped by our table during pre-dinner cocktails and his leadership and attention to detail is really evident with the entire team. Unfortunately the yoga instructor wasn’t there but they do have a yoga pavilion and the spa is great. I tried the Kawasaki treatment which I understand is only offered at The Sanchaya in Asia. We definitely will be back and one of our friends has already booked a stay with his family next month. I would come back with children as well as with other couples. Highly recommended!!!!
