BINTAN ISLAND, Indonesia – The Sanchaya, a remarkable 21-villa and nine-suite beachfront estate a short ferry ride from Singapore, has won a coveted spot in Condé Nast Traveler’s Readers’ Choice Awards 2017.

The prestigious North American magazine announced yesterday that The Sanchaya was one of only 50 resorts across Asia to make the cut in its “Top Resorts in Asia” category, with voters scoring the estate 97 out of 100.

“This is a celebration of the Best in the World,” the Conde Nast Traveler Team said. “More than 300,000 readers submitted millions of ratings and tens of thousands of comments, sharing their recent travel experiences of the world's cities, islands, hotels, resorts, cruise lines, airlines, and airports - good or bad.”

Estate manager Magnus Olovson said he and The Sanchaya’s team were thrilled to be recognized by what industry critics deem the world’s most prestigious hotel awards.

“Like so many others, I fell for The Sanchaya at first sight,” said Olovson. “Its people, its design, its stunning natural setting and its exquisite atmosphere; the estate is a splendid place to be and it’s fabulous to receive such worldwide acclaim.”
