The Sanchaya has unveiled an extravagant program of Christmas activities to see 2018 out with a bang. Located just 50 minutes from Singapore, the beachfront resort on Indonesia’s Bintan Island boasts colonial-inspired design features and a stately home atmosphere, complete with breathtaking views across the crystal clear ocean.

On 17 December 2018, The Sanchaya will be creating a celebratory visual display, complete with lavish Christmas decorations and a giant gingerbread house, baked by resident Chef Patissier to reflect the stylish exteriors of the estate itself. The Sanchaya’s calendar of Christmas and New Year events officially kicks off on 21 December 2018 with a Champagne and caviar tasting in association with Carelian Caviar. Produced in crystal-clear Nordic waters in Finland’s North Carelia water district, the luxurious caviar boasts a perfectly balanced texture, aroma and flavour, and is 100% natural and sustainable.

Carelian Caviar is the first Northern European producer of black gold, and will be on offer to guests of the Sanchaya alongside fine Champagnes from 6pm on 21 and 29 December.

Further delighting guests throughout the festive season, on Christmas Eve Estate Manager, Magnus Olovson, will host an intimate cocktail soiree in the bar, which will be followed by a traditional Christmas dinner, complete with all the trimmings. Christmas Day itself will be a relaxed affair, with a wine & cheese session hosted by estate sommelier, Jeroen L’abée, adding a touch of splendour.

Moving away from more traditional Christmas celebrations, 28 December will take on an Arabian spin, with chilled DJ beats setting the backdrop to an informal evening of shisha and spiced middle eastern cocktails and authentic Moroccan mint tea in the outside bar area.

The most glamorous event of The Sanchaya’s calendar will take place on 31 December, when the annual New Year’s Eve gathering is held at the estate. The exclusive evening is set to be full of indulgence and excess, with a live saxophonist, DJ performance, and a glorious firework display to mark the strike of midnight. The following morning, guests can ease into the New Year over a recovery brunch, complete with DIY Bloody Mary and Champagne station.

In addition to the extravagant program of events, The Sanchaya will be offering special spa packages from 18 December, including festive scrubs created by Spa Manager, Ria Cantle, and a complimentary glass of mulled wine after each treatment. Additionally, throughout the course of the season, regular croquet and archery tournaments will be held on the estate lawns, complete with Provence Rosé and strawberries.

The nonchalant elegance of the estate lends it equally well to family and large group getaways throughout the season, with plenty to occupy guests of all ages.

Estate Manager, Magnus Olovson said of the festivities; “It’s the most wonderful time of the year, and we’re pulling out all the stops to ensure our guests have plenty of fun, food, and lashings of Champagne!”

All events are exclusively available to guests of The Sanchaya.
