The Sanchaya recognised as one of Asia's Top 20 Resorts by Conde Nast Traveler

The Sanchaya has won a coveted spot in Condé Nast Traveler’s Readers’ Choice Awards 2017.

The prestigious North American magazine announced 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.”

If you’re on a retox mission, speak to our Estate sommelier

The Sanchaya’s estate sommelier Jeroen L’abée started his career over two decades ago as restaurant manager and sommelier, working for Michelin restaurants, Relais & Châteaux in his homeland as well as in France and now Indonesia. He delights The Sanchaya’s guests, referred to as “residents”, with his wine tastings and delectable wine and cheese pairings. He has developed an exceptional Dom Ruinart Champagne menu with the estate’s Italian chef Giacomo Turzo, and is significantly expanding The Sanchaya’s collection of premium and discovery wines.

Do you have a philosophy that you believe in when setting guest service standards?

For the guest to, each and every time, experience sheer delight in discovering new wines with new people.

What is your favourite wine region and wine?

Bourgogne of course! The region makes the most refined and subtle wines in the world. Musigny would have to be my favourite wine, although last month I tasted and served at The Sanchaya a 2000 Château Mouton Rothschild Rehoboam 5L and its bouquet and complexity were remarkable.

What is a key food and beverage trend you are following for the next year?

We have recently implemented the Coravin system, which is an innovative wine technology that permits you to pour wine by the glass without pulling the cork. It involves inserting a needle through the cork to siphon wine out of the bottle without spoiling the rest, protecting the wine from oxidation. It’s genius!

For the guests, we are able to further personalize our wine and champagne experience by offering exquisite selections including Super Tuscans and French Grands Crus by the glass thanks to this technique. This also makes our wine and food pairings all the more exciting as our residents can engage in tasting and discovering more wines from around the world. It’s been extremely well received by the guests.

Do your “residents” have a favorite cocktail?

Our British guests tell us our Vesper Martini is second only to London’s Dukes Hotel, quite a compliment! Crafted from premium gin and vodka, Lillet (classic French vermouth, if you can find it…) and lemon peel, we have invested a lot of fun training and tasting into this one.

How significant are theater and experience in your craft?

Both are crucial. Essentially we are on stage and our residents must feel that we are professional and authentic. True experience fosters confidence and vice versa, and it is also a pleasure to be able to share your experience with, and subsequently foster confidence in, the upcoming generation.
