The Sanchaya The Best of Both Worlds

[15/07/15] 

So you feel like you’ve earned a little break from the coal face, an interlude from the rat race? Perhaps to a coveted locale where the women are bronzed and the cocktails chilled.

Somewhere that’s close enough to the action that you’re not travelling half way round the globe, but that’s remote enough to let the solitude soak in? Perhaps a destination where the sun kisses the white sand beaches, the massages always come with four hands, and where the grandeur of the colonial era traditions are kept alive by willing vanguards. 

We think we know just the spot. Introducing The Sanchaya, a luxurious estate nestled on its own private beach, just an hour from Singapore. Finish up that business trip before the peanut shells have even hit the Long Bar floor and jump a high speed ferry to Bintan’s newest slice of paradise, where you’ll be met at the dedicated VIP lounge by your personal ‘Artesian’ and whisked off to a colonial-esque haven of respite wreathed by coconut palms and coral gardens. Stay in one of the Great House’s sublime suites, fitted out with cinnamon-hued hard wood, deep-set balconies and claw foot tubs, or opt for a spacious Thai villa that’s just steps from the village-inspired spa. You’ll find likeminded souls among the chesterfields and aged rums of The Bar, on the croquet field, where the Pimms is hardier than the conversation, and at The Salon & Library, where cheese and wine is paired amidst indigenous art and first editions. And work will be the last thing on your mind at The Sanchaya Spa, where a series of dedicated treatments promise to poke and prod gents into submission.

Who knew heaven was just off the coast of Sentosa.
