The Sanchaya unveils a new programme of child friendly
Renewing their focus on stress-free, family travel, The Sanchaya has unveiled a new programme of activities suited to travellers of all ages. The upscale estate is dedicated to offering an unparalleled experience, including their tiniest guests. Located on the shores of Bintan, just 50-minutes away from Singapore’s Changi Airport, The Sanchaya offers a sophisticated, yet familiar environment to relax and play.
The estate’s manicured croquet lawn boasts uninterrupted ocean views, and miniature mallets mean that children aged 4 years and older can take part in the traditional British pastime, whilst older players enjoy fresh strawberries and refreshing jugs of Pimms in the picturesque setting. Children aged 6 and above can also partake in a game of Archery, with The Sanchaya’s specially-made arrows, or learn to play Congklak – the mancala game of ancient Javanese origin. The local game is a firm favourite amongst the estate’s friendly team, all of whom are more than happy to teach the ropes to anyone who wishes to learn.
Energetic families will enjoy learning to Paddle Board together in the crystal clear ocean in front of the estate,* whilst guests aged 12 and above can give the OneWheel+ boards a whirl – the electric skateboards give a sensation of flying down the beach, and are able to reach speeds of up to 30kph. Budding yogis can join the Estate Yoga Instructor for an introduction to various styles of yoga, which have both physical and mental benefits. Each complimentary session will be tailored to suit the individual needs of guests, ensuring a fun and relaxing time on the mat.
The Sanchaya’s onsite herb and vegetable garden is a highlight of the estate and guests are invited to join the Gardeners as they tend to the area, with miniature shovels and boots provided for children. Harvesting ripe produce and planting new seeds ensures fresh ingredients are always on hand for use in the kitchen. Those hoping to sharpen their culinary prowess can also enjoy a family cooking class,* with aprons and chefs hats for the little ones. Come evening, Cocktail & Mocktail classes* will have the whole family shaking and stirring, learning to make delicious concoctions that can be replicated at home.
In addition to their ongoing menu of playful activities, the sophisticated estate regularly welcomes experts in residence, who bring their unique expertise to guests of all ages. Previous examples include world-famous musicians, personal trainers, and mindfulness experts.
Located less than an hour away from Singapore, The Sanchaya is a boutique beachfront estate nestled amidst luscious tropical gardens and the sparkling Indian Ocean. With an Indonesian- inspired spa, private croquet lawn, endless white beach, and several world-class dining options, The Sanchaya is one of the most convenient, yet inspiring, escapes in the region.
