The Sanchaya unveils detox for healthy holidaymakers

rsz_sanchaya_yoga_pavilionNutritious soups and smoothies, detoxifying body massages and private yoga sessions by the South China Sea are among the array of options on offer as part of The Sanchaya’s new detox program designed to provide the ultimate restorative holiday.

Overlooking a placid bay of aquamarine waters and picturesque islands, the 9.6-hectare Sanchaya site is located on Indonesia’s Bintan Island, a 45-minute ferry ride from Singapore’s Tanah Merah Ferry Terminal. It is the only property on Bintan with its own VIP lounge at the ferry terminal, ensuring a seamless arrival and departure experience thanks to express immigration and customs clearance.  It is also easily accessible from Jakarta.

Meaning “collection” in Sanskrit, The Sanchaya is home to 21 villas and nine suites, a clubhouse, two restaurants and 24-hour in-villa dining, a bar, wine cellar, wine, cheese and cigar lounge, function space, 50-meter long infinity pool, spa, fitness center, beachside yoga pavilion, croquet lawn, and more.

Now under the two-day “Detox at The Sanchaya” package, guests can kick-start the day with an early morning detox drink and yoga with a private instructor at the luxurious estate’s pavilion on the beach.

After a reinvigorating breakfast holidaymakers indulge a body massage, choosing from The Sanchaya’s seven customized chakra oils, each promising health benefits derived from distinctive ingredients. A warm cup of chakra tea follows the treatment.

Between servings of smoothies anchored by almond proteins, greens or coconuts, soups ranging from lentil and kale to roasted cauliflower, and snacks such as pumpkin cookies, guests can recharge in an exquisite environment and bid good riddance to toxins. “Detoxing is not easy but we’re trying to make it easier,” said The Sanchaya’s estate manager Anshuman Narayan.

During breakfast, healthy and refreshing traditional Jamu Gendong drinks are served with the compliments of the estate. Jamu is a natural Indonesian medicine based on indigenous tradition passed down the generations using local spices and root tubers.

The Sanchaya has been selected for inclusion on the Condé Nast Traveler Hot List of Best New Hotels in the World, Travel + Leisure IT List for Best 43 New Hotels Around the Globe, DestinAsian’s Luxe List and World Travel’s Luxury 50, all for 2015.
