Located less than an hour away from Singapore on the sandy shores of Bintan Island, The Sanchaya offers a selection of meeting and events spaces away from the city.
In addition, all of The Sanchaya’s guests are escorted through fast-tracked immigration and a private VIP lounge at Bintanās ferry terminal before a short private chauffeur to the estate.
Ahead of the festive season, from December 3 to December 20, 2018, for Sunday to Thursday evenings, The Sanchaya is offering a deal for groups of 10-15 people. Priced at S$145++ (US$105++) per person, the Christmas special includes a welcome cocktail, use of all facilities, and a Roaming Lunch, in addition to reduced room rates for those wishing to extend their stay.
Meeting spaces within the estate include for example, include the Dahlia function room. The adaptable space can accommodate 48 guests for a sit-down lunch, dinner, or meeting or 75 guests theatre-style. The room is fully-equipped with top of the range technology and screening equipment, while small touches add an element of executive luxury to meetings ā leather writing pads, antique stationary boxes, and slick writing instruments.
For added flexibility, the room opens up to a colonnaded terrace with views across the manicured lawns out to the Indian ocean. Complementing the Dahlia function room, The Library, The Bar, The Decanter, and the estateās gardens work as breakout, coffee break, or cocktail venues, where groups can conduct more informal sessions.
In addition, The Sanchaya recently launched the Roaming Lunch, which leads diners on a culinary experience through the various areas of the estate ā think Port-infused stilton and freshly-carved Iberico in The Decanter wine cellar, followed by cocktails and canapeĢs in the Bar, and a seated main course in The Dining room. The roving meal gives groups the opportunity to mingle with one another in the absence of the set seating arrangements of traditional meals.
The estate also offers several teambuilding experiences. Archery, croquet and peĢtanque tournaments will encourage friendly competition, whilst Onewheel+ and BloKarts are available for adrenaline-inducing afternoons. Groups can also indulge in cooking classes and wine and cheese tasting sessions with the estate sommelier.
