Day-by-Day

Day 1 Bintan Island

Leave the bustling city of Singapore behind for an island getaway just an hour away. Take the ferry to Bintan island and a private transfer to the Sanchaya, a beachfront estate offering 9.6 hectares of tropical garden. From the manicured driveway and past the central fountain, be greeted by the Estate Manager at the colonial-styled Great House before a buggy ride onward to your villa. Spend the rest of the day lounging by the pool, reading on your private balcony, strolling the gardens, and making use of the Decanter, Library, and Salon facilities. The Sanchaya offers lawn croquet, pétanque, cycling, paddle boarding, Blokart sailing, archery lessons, and cooking lessons to fill out the day on property. Those seeking more activity can take a mountain hike to the summit of Bintan mountain or discover the mangrove forests with a private boat and guide. Round out the day with a wine & cheese pairing with Sanchaya’s Sommelier and Fromager, or mix your own cocktails and mocktails like a pro with the house mixologist.
