The Luxurious Sanchaya Resort in Bintan Island

Opened early 2015, set along the pristine sands of Lagoi Bay on the northern shore of the enchanting Bintan Island, in the Riau Islands Province, the luxurious Sanchaya Resort fronts an ivory-colored beach with stunning views of the South China Sea. With twenty one private villas and nine suites, all the rooms are filled with hand-picked treasures and fascinating artifacts that reflect the varied cultures of South-east Asia. With all-day dining, a wonderful spa and a large central pool, this is without doubt, one of Bintan’s most captivating places to stay.

Representing the finest in Bintan Island accommodation, all 30 rooms are a careful blend of colonial elegance and Asian exoticism. Affording great views either of the sea or on lush tropical gardens, each has either private verandas or balconies, allowing guests to enjoy outdoor privacy during their stay. Equipped with super-king-size beds and walk-in closets, the rooms also have modern amenities such as iPads, high-fidelity Bang & Olufsen televisions and sound systems, cable and Apple TV, and WiFi, all tastefully designed in harmony with each room’s interior style, so as not to compromise the ambience.

The unique collection of 21 bespoke private villas and nine suites reflects the rich cultural mosaic of Asia. All the artifacts, artwork, stories, furniture and textures have been personally selected from countries across the region to give an insight into Asia’s rich culture and history, as part of The Sanchaya Bintan collection.

The Sanchaya Bintan eye for detail are best demonstrated in the dining and drinking options offered to guests. Recognizing that time is a different kind of commodity when on holiday than while at work, The Sanchaya invites its guests to dine whenever and wherever they like. Eat when they are hungry rather than as social norms dictate.

Nothing reflects the local culture more than what people eat and drink. During breakfast, the traditional “Jamu Gendong” lady will visit the tables offering healthy and refreshing Jamu drinks, an Indonesian traditional natural healthy beverage which uses local spices and root-tubers unique to this area. In the evening, one can also try smoking fine Indonesian tobacco through a long pipe on the Terrace outside The Great House.

Facing a crystal-clear turquoise sea, habitat of playful dolphins and graceful turtles, The Sanchaya is surrounded by rainforests and mangroves rich in exotic animal life such as chattering monkeys and monitor lizards. Guests can also take the opportunity to discover the wildlife on a mangrove discovery tour or go island hopping to Senggarang and Penyengat Islands to see ancient temples, palace ruins and tombs.
