Influenced by its rich colours, variety of flavours, and exotic sights and sounds of South East Asia, the very best elements are harmoniously blended together in the individual personalities of the villas and suites. A taste of Thailand is reflected in the Lawan Village’s seven villas built around a beautiful man-made lagoon.

With romantic canopied beds and freestanding bath tubs overlooking private gardens, Lawan Villas are the perfect place to de-stress and unwind. Eight One bedroom Sea View Villas reflect influences from Brunei, Indonesia, Cambodia and Vietnam and four Two Bedroom Sea View Villasreflect influences from Malaysia, The Philippines, Laos and Myanmar. These exquisite villas have private landscaped terraces and gardens which add to the overall feeling of space and tranquillity.
Stunning views of the beach and shimmering Indian Ocean can be admired from the nine suites located on the upper floor of The Great House. These suites are filled with art and luxurious furnishings sourced from across South East Asia, reflecting the romantic colonial style of the residence, as well as giving a true sense of the region. Each suite has a collection of The Sanchaya fine art and design.
Leelawadee Villas are for those who wish to indulge in the luxury of having three spacious bedrooms, and are ideal for a family or a group of friends. The décor of the compound was inspired by Thai traditions and culture, with soothing lush garden views and private pool terraces, the three Leelawadee Villas provide a haven of subliminal tranquility.
A stunning expression of Asian chic, the two-storey Vanda Villa, the Estate’s Presidential Villa, is influenced by the tropical beauty of Singapore and its striking black and white colonial houses. With a pure simplicity of white furnishings, the four bedroom Villa has a glorious sense of space and calmness which provides the ultimate setting for its magnificent ocean views. Each room is equipped with customized items specially designed and tailored for The Sanchaya.

Custom Blended Coffees and Leaf Teas – The Estate’s tea offering features an extensive selection from Ronnefeldt teas including their own Sanchaya Blend.

The same artisanal philosophy is behind The Sanchaya custom blend coffee using four types of Arabica beans whose character is medium-high body, low acidity with caramel, nutty and dark chocolate notes. The 100% Arabica beans are sourced from Estates in West Java, Central Java, Lombok and Flores and are cultivated at 1100 meters above sea level. They are hand-picked, processed with the washed method, dried on stainless steel beds and then medium roasted in a hot air roaster.
The Gourmet coffee menu will feature blends that will be hand-ground in front of each resident and brewed in a French press, adding a wonderful fragrant touch to the experience, paying homage to an ancient preparation technique rarely seen today.
Customized Bar List – The Estate’s bar lists were exclusively customized by Fluid Dynamics from the United Kingdom, pioneering a unique beverage offering and creating truly innovative bar experiences to really “wow” residents. The pinnacle service is the “no menu” presentation with personal interaction between the barmen with the resident, while creating a signature cocktail on the spot customized to resident’s specific preference.
