Sanchaya Sanga

Monday 4th - Friday 8th June

While most practitioners of mindfulness retreat to the pagoda and the sangha for space and community, The Sanchaya is stepping up as an alternative venue for a retreat that indulges silence and calm, great food and fine wine.

An intimate five-day four-night retreat that balances morning beach boot camp sessions, meditation workshops and afternoon yoga and pilates with delectable spreads from the resort’s kitchens, premium vintages from its cellars, European cheese and rarified conversation.

designed for those in need of a getaway, combining some physical exertion and meditation with the finer things in life, such as dialogue with like-minded people.We’ll begin our days with a sweat session on the beach. Combining training methods of high-intensity intervals, strength and conditioning and functional fitness, we will get the heart rate up, muscles toned and endorphins flying!

In the afternoons we will shift our focus inwards to strengthen the mind-body connections. Slowing the pace down, we will fuse Pilates, yoga and somatic body practices to invite engagement, activation and release, all while syncing to the breath and inner landscape.

Saga Seeds

February 2018

Kumari Nahappan’s beautiful, giant fiberglass seeds will grace The Sanchaya with their presence from early 2018. This is where our Saga seed story begins. In total, 30 of these magical red seeds, initially discovered at the Venice Biennale’s ANIMA MUNDI International Arts Festival floating down the Rio di Santa Caterina canal, will eventually come to rest on the shores of The Sanchaya.

But before reaching Bintan, these amazing pods will embark on an incredible voyage, carried on the waves of emotion, the ebb and flow of the tides, encouraged by the wind, taking them across twenty different seas and oceans, navigating all the way from Europe to our Indonesian island in the South China Sea.

These intense, mesmerizing shapes and their many shades of red, their emanating energy, will entice you to walk, sit or even lay amongst them and contemplate the beginning of life, our very existence. A reminder of the beauty of nature: the seed, an embryonic plant enclosed in its protective outer covering. Once settled, the quest to take root becomes primordial to growth, strength, pushing forth on a path to the future. The life of a Saga seed echoes that of the potential of a human soul, endeavouring to exist in this world of ours.
