Certificate of Excellence
The Sanchaya is the manifestation of its Founder's philosophy on lifestyle. Reminiscent of the European Salons which were prevalent throughout the 18th and 19th centuries, the concept of The Salon is a quintessential ideal of hospitality, where homes were opened to provide guests with a point of interest, and to share with others 'La Vie Vivant' - through food, arts, and culture. Residents will be able to relive the romance of colonial elegance of a by-gone era with The Sanchaya's unique collection of 21 villas and 9 suites, opening in 2015. The Sanchaya, a luxurious new beachfront estate idyllically located on the Indonesian island of Bintan is positioned on one of the most spectacular beaches in the region, just 45-minutes from Singapore, this charming retreat envelopes you in the intimacy of a private home while bestowing all the refinements of a world-class hotel. The Sanchaya Estate will offer residents an extraordinary experience with highly personalized service and absolute attention to detail. Each villa and suite will have its own unique style, reflecting the rich culture, history and art of the region. Influenced by its rich colours, variety of flavours, and exotic sights and sounds of South-East Asia and its rare and incomparable terrain, the very best elements are harmoniously blended together in the individual personalities of the villas and suites.
