Relax on the terrace outside The Great House and enjoy a long pipe with the finest Indonesian tobacco or a hand-rolled Cuban cigar in the bar or visit the Wine Cellar. Wherever you are, allow our artisans to treat you with genuine hospitality. We want you to feel part of our extended family rather than a resort guest.

And at the end of the evening, retire to one of our glorious suites with stunning views of the shimmering seas and beyond. Each of the nine suites has a collection of The Sanchaya fine art carefully selected from across Asia, reflecting the romance of the colonial era as well as providing an insight into the region’s enchanting cultural mosaic.

With spacious living rooms, private outdoor spaces and the ultimate in refined furnishings, the suites make for your private haven, right on the doorstep of Singapore.

Spa Treatments

Yoga is not just good for your soul and body, but it’s an essential part of Asian culture. We allow you the chance to (re)discover that inner part of you with sunrise yoga sessions. While the more athletic can take advantage of our 50-metre infinity Tasanee Pool or fully equipped gymnasium.If you wish to learn more about the culture of the region, then our artisans will be pleased to let you discover (or rediscover) some traditional Asian board games, such as Congklak, Catur Harimau, Catur Perang, Dam and Carrom.

Nothing says ‘pamper me’ in Asia quite like a spa treatment. Our exquisite sanctuary, The Sanchaya Spa, offers a choice of indoor and outdoor treatment rooms for you to experience our range of therapies given by our professionally trained massage therapists.

Whether it is Thai, Balinese, Swedish or our Signature massage, featuring a combination of deep tissue and warm stone therapies, we have the very treatment that is perfect for you.

Spa Treatments

Our unique spa products include original aromas with a choice of essential oils that will reflect the body’s seven sacred chakras. We have also developed our own choice selection of fragrant herbal teas that will balance, tune and energize each of the seven chakras and help boost your energy levels.

At The Sanchaya Bintan Island, we place great emphasis on getting the little things right. Our 50-meter infinity Tassanee Pool is a prime example of this. How often have you taken the plunge in an inviting resort pool only to find your eyes stinging from the excessive chlorine? This is why we have a salt chlorinator system to remove the need for all those nasty chemicals.

Whether you are a serious lapper or pool wallower, our 50-meter Tasanee Pool is ideal for you. We even have designed a special shallow wading section where sun loungers are placed in the water for a totally different sunbathing and relaxing experience.As the name suggests – Tasanee means beautiful view in Thai – the panorama is quite spectacular.
