Located on the island of Bintan, The Sanchaya is an exclusive beachfront resort that has been designed to reflect colonial grandeur. This is no ordinary beach resort, what with its stunning architecture and beautiful surroundings of not just crystal-clear turquoise sea but also rainforest and mangroves.
Naturally, the highlight of the hotel is its beach. The Sanchaya fronts an ivory-coloured beach that opens up to the sea. There are 21 private villas and nine suites over two floors, each one decorated with hand-picked artefacts that reflect the different cultures in Southeast Asia. The villas are designed to reflect a mix of colonial and contemporary style to create an ambience of warmth and elegance – you won’t want to check out. There are three villa types to choose from. The three-suites types offer either a garden view or a sea view.
As for dining, check out the Dining Room, the estate-s all-day dining that lets you eat whenever you are hungry rather than allocated mealtimes. Or try the Thai cuisine at the poolside Tasanee Grill for dinner, serving up Bangkok street cuisine in a beach setting. Meanwhile, The Salon and Library offers a wide collection of rare vintage wines and finest cheeses as well as a selection of Cuban cigars to be enjoyed in a comfortable surrounding with sea view while The Bar lets you enjoy your cocktail being prepared right next to you by the professional barmen.
Other facilities here include a butler service, spa, fitness centre and swimming pool. You can also enjoy outdoor activities like cycling, yoga, a jogging track, an 18-hole or 9-hole golf course, driving range and watersports.
