Bintan is a small islands in Indonesia that’s popular with Singapore based weekend tripper (it takes a bit under a hour by ferry to the Bintan ferry terminal). The Sanchaya is majorly overpriced, especially relative for typical pricing in Bintan or Indonesia, but its def the best you can get on the island. The beach was decent, but there were a lot of sand flies when we went, so we spent the weekend by the pool.
The rooms were awesome, but I forgot to take pictures of it…
Almost our entire stay (despite being a Friday night – Sunday afternoon) we had the pool and whole place to ourselves. If not the cost, we would definitely go again!
EDIT: I forgot to mention, service was excellent from beginning to end. And also the ferry terminal transfer services (usually included?) are excellent, really nice way to enjoy usage of a lounge and expedited transfer from the boat all the way to hotel and back.
