“Colonial beachfront hideaway”

Sanchaya’s VIP lounge and fast track service through Bintan’s ferry terminal swiftly sets the stage for tropical exclusivity. The powder white sand, punctuated by lofty palm trees, is just an hour away from Singapore. The main building, aptly named the Great House, is where great times are spent – a leisurely afternoon in the plush library, an indulgent wine and cheese pairing session in the cellar, or slow life appreciation by the quintessential pool with inspiring ocean views.
