The Sanchaya Bintan Island Celebrates Festive Season with Sublime Events

October 10, 2017 -

With the season to be merry fast approaching, The Sanchaya is getting ready to pop the Champagne and celebrate with a host of exquisite events, including a bubbly dinner from the world’s oldest Champagne house.

From December 20 until January 1, The Sanchaya, a short ferry ride from Singapore, will stage the festivities including Christmas Eve and New Year’s Eve dinners, as well as caviar and Champagne evenings, a private philharmonic performance, a croquet afternoon by the ocean with rosé, strawberries and live music, and more.

“No one looks back on their life and remembers the nights they had plenty of sleep, so we will pop Champagne, eat, drink and be merry, and of course search the skies on Christmas Eve and live it up as we ring in the new year,” said The Sanchaya’s estate manager Magnus Olovson.

It all kicks off with an ‘Aroma Journey' wine tasting in the glass-walled wine cellar Decanter on Wednesday, December 20. The next evening, the estate manager will host an intimate discovery wine dinner at Decanter for a maximum of 10 guests.

It’s time for caviar served in a variety of ways, all with bubbles, on Friday December 22 from 6pm.

Provence Rosé and strawberries will be indulged to the strains of live traditional music at The Sanchaya’s manicured croquet lawn overlooking powder white sands and the ocean dotted with picturesque islands, at sunset on Saturday, December 23.

Christmas Eve begins with Champagne cocktails and yummy bites at The Bar, replete with vintage prints, antique binoculars, custom furniture and other trappings of a 19th Century Explorer’s Club. Residing guests will then move to The Dining Room, for a classic Christmas dinner, featuring roast pigeon breast risotto with foie gras and goat cheese creamy sauce, as well as pan-fried lamb rack with Italian sausage and black truffle stuffing among others.

Christmas Day will be a relaxed yet hopefully sunny affair, with sweet and savory treats on the verandah overlooking the sea as part of Classic Afternoon Tea.

The estate sommelier Jeroen L’abée will serve Champagne, whites, reds and a sweet wine with an array of cheese in Decanter on the evening of Thursday, December 28.

The Sanchaya’s festive Champagne dinner will feature Dom Ruinart white and rosé vintages from the French Champagne house established in 1729, along with Dom Pérignon, on Friday, December 29.

In a warm-up to New Year’s Eve, the Big Reds will be served along an exquisite selection of Chamber music performed by friends from the Singapore Symphony Orchestra in the estate’s Library on Saturday December 30. Very limited seating available.

The Sanchaya will begin to ring in the new year with a walkaround dinner starting with Champagnes and Chef Giacomo Turzo’s delights such as vintage port infused blue Stilton, freshly shucked oysters and ikura caviar tasting in the bar and library area.

The evening’s pièces de résistance will be served in the Dining Rooms, including black grouper quenelles with lobster sauce, samphire, grilled baby squid and salmon roe, and Wagyu tenderloin with cherry vinegar, shallot reduction, bordelaise sauce. Then a multitude of delectable desserts on offer at the Tasanee Beach Terrace, an open bar by the beach, live band and fireworks will usher the resident guests into a new vintage.

All of the events are for resident guests only. Contact The Sanchaya on +62 770 692200 or its toll-free number 3156 3661, or email reservations@thesanchaya.com to book your suite or villa.
