The Sanchaya is only 50 minutes ferry ride from Singapore, plus a short private chauffeured transfer from the estate’s private VIP lounge at Bintan’s Bandar Bentan Telani Ferry Terminal. The beachfront resort offers an award-winning collection of 13 lavish villas (1-bedroom to 4-bedroom) and 17 signature suites combining exceptionally comfortable interiors with the warmth and atmosphere like those of a luxurious private estate spread over 9.6 beachfront hectares. Its common areas, oceanview restaurants The Dining Room and Tasanee Grill, The Bar, Salon & Library as well as The Decanter (wine cellar) reference Southeast Asia’s rich history and culture blended with a vintage European refinement in its artworks, antiques, and furnishings.

We started here for 4 days. Firstly , the staff were brilliant in making you feel at home and their service was 7 star quality - a big thank you to Greg, Eko, Ika, Budi, Agus , Agus P, Lina, Siti , jumri , Elma, Yohan, Rehadian , Maya, Maria , Dewi, Lina , Roy and all the others The property is beautiful and elegantly designed. The interior dining room , bar, library , etc have their own special character attributed to the wonderful and diverse collection of Asian artifacts The food organised by Budi and team was sumptuous which a blend of local favourites , Thai and continental type cuisine. The dinner by the beach was beautifully organised with a 9 course delicious meal - lobster , lamb , prawns etc. The Sanchaya is a great getaway from Singapore - a luxurious home away from home. The Sanchaya means collection in Sanskrit. Indeed, it is a collection of wonderful and warm staff, an elegantly designed property , diverse artifacts , delicious food, etc Thank you to the entire team who looked after us so well We will come again.

Many hotels claim to have the best facilities and service but The Sanchaya really does deliver on their promises. When every detail is perfectly attended to you don’t even notice except that everything runs seamlessly and makes most other resorts seem lacking. From the time we arrived, all the staff greeted us by name and were incredibly helpful and friendly. The rooms are magnificent and the location spacious gardens on the beachfront is perfect for a luxury getaway. We really enjoyed the spa facilities and the ladies were so friendly and professional. Food is excellent and reasonably priced for a luxury resort. Rahadian, Maria, Dewi and the whole team looked after us so well. They even arranged for a very special birthday dinner and cake when Rahadian heard about the occasion. The front desk staff made us feel so welcome and special - thank you Nawa and Roy and the team. The Sanchaya has a guest lounge in the Singapore and Bintan ferry terminals and they even look after immigration and customs entry, exit and hotel check in, so all you need to do is arrive at the hotel in the Sanchaya shuttle, go straight to your room where your luggage will have already been delivered and start relaxing for one of the best beach resort holidays you could have. Thank you Greg (GM) for your kind hospitality, we look forward to our next visit.

It’s our first time travel to Bintan after pandemic with our baby. Sure we want everything to be perfect so we chose Sanchaya, since we’re not sure we can find any attraction nearby or even restaurant after pandemic. Thank God we chose the right one! From check-in till check-out everything was perfect! Services, food, room.. spa experience (if you’re pregnant mom to be spa is a MUST!!) you name it its all worth it, because everything were personalized. The only downside u can expect to experience is the sea flies 😂 well it’s a nature thing so just be prepared to bring your best calming lotion, because u might get some even after applying the bugs repellent. So big thanks to chef Budi and all the chef team and servers Yohan, maria, and all we love all the bfast (unagi don, sous vide egg, croissants, donut, lemon butter) and dinner meal (esp the tom yum goong, asam pedas soup, oxtqil soup) Check in-check-out staff Nawa, Lina and all staffs we couldn’t mention one by one.. we love you all! Thank you and hope to see you again! Ps: maybe they need to consider to change the tiles (because there are lots of yellow spots alrd, thou we love how beautiful the tiles are)

Sanchaya is a magically build colonial style resort in Bintan. Each guess will have his/her own beautiful spacious house to share with family. The resort has its own library, gift store, and a very beautiful private beach located right behind each room/house. Every day will be filled with activities, whether it's a simple beach fun or playing Jiabo on the sand. This resort (and frankly) most resort in Bintan will surprise you like never before! Bintan, I'll be back :D

Truly world class! Sanchaya was beyond expectation with its ultra bespoke service and top notched staffs, with amazing culinary experience and cleanliness around the premise and inside the suite itself.. not to mention the gorgeous architectural design and beautiful suites they offer.. We were pampered during our stay like no other 5 6 star resorts all across Indonesia has ever done before! Nothing could be more perfect in our Sanchaya experience, from the knowledgable airport transfer driver (Mr. Juni), to the Manager-on-Duty (Ms. May), the F&B head (Mr. Hardian), as well as the amazing staffs like Mr. Ari who taught us lawn croquette and accompanied us during our cycling trip around the beautiful paddy field and lake, also the wonderful dining experience served by Mr. Johan, Ms. Maria, and Ms. Ika. And together with the amazing chef offering various scrumptious breakfast, lunch, dinner and not to mention the most epic afternoon tea we have ever had in a while. Could say it was better than the afternoon tea at Ritz London :D also the personable Mr. Kukuh who was on the night shift. Everyone and everything in Sanchaya made our stay perfect and we could not think of any better place to spend our leisure time. The only thing we regretted was that we did not discover Sanchaya much earlier.. had we know such ethereal place exist, we would have come back here every now and then with our beloved fam :) can't wait to plan our next visit soon!

We celebrated my hubby's milestone birthday with a surprise! From the booking to the event to our departure it was extraordinary and we just loved the thoughtful planning and the attention we had received during our stay. The effort to decorate the outdoor area with heavy winds was huge and we were glad that all were completed before the birthday boy arrived. Staffs English level is quite high and they greet you with your name, I am sure they have a memory training ;-). Food was excellent and we celebrated with a private dinner in front of our pool the first night and had seafood in another resort the second night. The kids were particularly enjoying their freedom in a separate villa on their own just next to ours. The great experience started and ended with the private channel, the staff will take care of the immigration on your behalf while you are enjoying a welcome drink in a VIP lounge. It's a MUST when you go to Bintan.
