THE SANCHAYA HOTEL
This exquisite boutique hotel is the leading property on the island of Bintan, originally opening in 2015 and independently owned it offers the visitor the ultimate in high customer service at all levels of your holiday experience, it is really is truly a remarkable venue and managed by an amicable Dutchman Magnus who has worked in many remarkable establishments over his career.
The Sanchaya is located only 15 minutes away from the ferry terminal where you land from Singapore, which is only 1 hour by boat. The moment you land at Bintan you are welcomed by Sanchaya staff who look after the entire immigration and baggage process for you, whilst you can relax in their VIP lounge and enjoy drinks and delicious snacks. You are already getting a feel for The Sanchaya service! Before you know it you will be in the luxury transfer vehicle and the bags will be packed and ready to go.
The Sanchaya is the perfect complement to a stay in Singapore and because of the quality of the golf and hotel we would highly advise staying a minimum period on 7 nights, as there are 81 holes on the Island all within 20 minutes of the hotel. Here you can enjoy the ultimate deserted beach luxury experience, the idyllic foil to a few nights in a luxury boutique hotel in Singapore where you can take in the ultimate City Break.
The resort has only 28 rooms and villas, it is truly boutique, you can choose between rooms inside the Great House, which has a real Colonial feel to its design, with a choice of Junior Suites, or Sanchaya Suites which offer an extra lounge, or the large villas which lie outside close to the beach, or overlooking a beautiful lagoon alternatively.
The staff at The Sanchaya are the most friendly and professional we have ever experienced in any overseas venue, matched only by the staff at the Datai, making this a perfect 2 or 3 centre venue with Langkawi, they are charming and will give you the top level of service, but with a natural smile at all times. The pool terraces rest alongside a beautiful white sand beach and the outlook from the hotels garden areas is just totally idyllic. Simply put this is true paradise found!
There are 2 excellent dining venues and breakfast is a wonderful experience, a very innovative menu bringing Indonesian flavours into your early morning meal, freshly cooked eggs with spice and an exquisite buffet also. In the evenings choose between authentic Thai or Indonesian cuisine together with a European menu which may be described as French Fusion. The restaurants have a wonderful combination of freshly cooked produce, allowing you with their guidance to explore new flavours and cuisines, bursting with flavour.
Special mention of the bar and the ambience therein, it is a special venue and the comfort and style of the setting matches everything else, enjoy the finest cocktails in a wonderful ambience.
The hotel have luxury vehicles and will take you to all the islands golf courses – 81 holes of the very best golf you can experience (without exaggeration) anywhere in the world.

Environment, tucked away in the picturesque garden areas well away from the Great House.
