The Sanchaya
Bintan

The Sanchaya is an exclusive beachfront hotel on the Indonesian island of Bintan.

Styled as a grand colonial estate with lush landscaping and original furnishings, The Sanchaya offers bespoke beach side luxury. Everything in the estate has been customised, from the fragrance, to the dinnerware, to their unique blend of tea created exclusively for them by Ronnefeldt. The estate evokes the elegance and grandeur of sprawling governor residences of India, and guests can play games like croquet and lawn bowls, and indulge in English high tea. Every detail of the guest's experience has been thought out, from the iPad check-in, to the traditional games placed around the estate, to the personal journals guests receive to jot down their holiday memories.

The Sanchaya, which is Sanskrit for “collection”, offers a collection of 19 individually designed villas, and 9 suites offering a high standard of luxury with quality features, like Bang & Olufsen televisions and integrated sound and vision systems, Apple TV, iPads and 462 thread-count Egyptian cotton Percale bedding. The Sanchaya’s design and architecture combines elements of Southeast Asian culture, drawing upon its artefacts, stories, textures and tastes. Like a mosaic of Asia, each villa and suite has its own charm and character: a four-poster bed, antiques, a bathtub with clawed feet and Venetian blinds. 

The restaurant serves Southeast Asian home-style food and at Sanchaya's Clubhouse you’ll find regular tastings of artisan cheeses and selected wines. The Sanchaya's Spa Pavilion Healing Garden has a team of specialists who grow healing plants from across the region to use in treatments. The resort has a large 40 metre swimming pool which stretches along the beachfront with views out to sea. 

The hotel is a 45-minute boat ferry from Singapore’s Tanah Merah Ferry Terminal, and an easy transfer for international travellers coming through Singapore's Changi Airport. Rates include express immigration from Singapore and custom clearance at Bintan ferry terminal, transfer, breakfast, Wi-fi access and maxi-bar access.

To my mind, the greatest reward and luxury of travel is to be able to experience everyday things as if for the first time, to be in a position in which almost nothing is so familiar it is taken for granted.
Bill Bryson

We had a wonderful holiday - everything was perfect. Thank you for helping us to make a thoughtful plan to enjoy and make most out of our trip. The places we visited, the guides, the transportation and driver, the hotels selected... Everything was great!
- Jaime Benitez, South India
Ampersand’s details preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet/direct booking age. Shalmali was a delight to work with – before and during our trip.
- Mr David Wallace, North India
I thought the Ampersand team was outstanding. We couldn’t have hoped for anything more.
- Mr Geoffrey Johnson, India
Everything you did for us whilst we were away was hugely appreciated, and Ampersand has been exemplary in every way. I'll always recommend you!
- Mr Richard Stoughton, Sri Lanka
So many highlights to choose from! The hotels were amazing but Maya Villa was a highlight… I loved just hanging out in the hammock reading my book and watching the peacocks chase the cows!
- Krista Weir, Sri Lanka
Without question, you put together the best trip I have ever taken. We were shown around like visiting dignitaries, the hotels were fantastic and the itinerary was just right. Everybody I know will hear about how amazing Ampersand is!
- Leslie Siben, India
Difficult to articulate just how good the service from you and your team really was. We know you will continue to do well and hope we have the chance to seek your assistance again before long.
- Mr & Mrs Manson, North India
I had a very lovely time and was looked after splendidly. My first visit to India could not have been better, save for being longer! But I shall return at some point and I shall look to you to make the arrangements.
- Matthew Nicklin, North India
