A new luxury resort is poised to open its doors in the first half of 2013 on the northern shores of Indonesia’s Bintan Island.
Located on the Riau Archipelago of Indonesia, 40km south of Singapore, The Sanchaya will spread out over 1,300 hectares in the Lagoi Bay area of Bintan and will comprise 19 villas and nine suites, with features including Bang & Olufsen televisions and integrated sound and vision systems throughout, and 462 thread-count Egyptian cotton Percale bedding in all the guestrooms.
“We are delighted to introduce this exciting new property to Bintan,” said The Sanchaya’s General Manager Michael Gaehler. “Bintan is well known to Singaporeans as a convenient island getaway, but we believe our offering will also appeal to sophisticated international travellers who might not otherwise have considered Bintan as a destination.
“Our vision for the estate is to offer guests an extraordinary experience like no other. Each and every one of our villas and suites will have its own exceptional style, reflecting the region’s art, culture and rich history. Like a mosaic, it is a collection of intricate pieces that are beautiful in their own right, yet brought together to make a whole that is more perfect than their component parts,” added Gaehler.
Overseeing the design of the estate is the Thailand-based international design firm, P49 Deesign, whose portfolio of international clients includes brands such as Ritz Carlton, W Hotels & Private estates, Four Seasons, Conrad and Anantara.
The resort will be a member of the Small Luxury Hotels of the World (SLH) and Elite Resorts of Asia Pacific.
