The Sanchaya Bintan Promotes Alternative To Plastic Surgery

An approach to health and well-being that smooths facial wrinkles endorsed by some of the world’s biggest names including Madonna and Kim Kardashian has come to The Sanchaya Bintan.

Developed by renowned healer and skincare expert Kazumasa Kawasaki, who has an estimated 100,000 followers predominantly in his native Japan, Europe and the United States, ‘The Kawasaki Way’ challenges widespread belief plastic surgery is needed to combat the ravages of aging.

Dubbed the ‘Non-Surgical Lift’, the 60-minute treatment on offer at The Sanchaya Spa prescribes specialized massage techniques to boost blood circulation and skincare product made from rare, natural Japanese ingredients. The results include an instant, visible reduction of facial wrinkles.

“It’s a major coup for The Sanchaya Spa to offer such a singular treatment and two of Kawasaki’s skincare products for the first time in Asia outside of Japan,” said The Sanchaya’s founder Natalya Pavchinskaya.


The treatment concentrates on the feet where blood circulation tends to be most congested before moving upwards to the arms, face and head. Its benefits include supply of oxygen and nutrients to the body, removal of damaging bodily waste, activation of facial muscles and increased energy flow.

The treatment is also credited with bolstering the efficiency of internal organs, particularly the gastrointestinal tract to help generate serotonin, the so-called “happy hormone”.

During the 60-minute session, the 69 different Japanese herbs and botanicals that constitute Kawasaki’s beauty serum “Essence” are applied to the legs, hands, arms, shoulders, neck, scalp and face to rejuvenate and tighten skin. Essence also works to repair and guard skin from damaging free radicals by harnessing natural, age-reversing nutrients.

In addition to Essence, Kawasaki’s “Mist” is also available at The Sanchaya Spa. Described as a “miracle of science”, the spray features 14 botanical extracts and works on a micro cellular level to instantly hydrate the skin and refine skin tone and texture.

Based on the belief that internal health affects a person’s appearance and vice versa, The Kawasaki Way was introduced 16 years ago. Kawasaki’s skincare products are popular with celebrities and he makes pilgrimages to locations ranging from Monaco to New York City to treat VIP clients.

The Kawasaki Way Treatment at The Sanchaya Spa, exclusive to guests staying at The Sanchaya, is priced at US $250.


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.

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.

Balinese in style, The Sanchaya Spa is home to two treatment rooms for a multitude of massages, two verandas with zero gravity beds catering to foot reflexology, and two outdoor Thai cabanas naturally lending themselves to Thai massages. The spa’s seven customized chakra massage oils each have their own health benefits derived from its distinctive ingredients. The spa has recently acquired an ‘Optimax’ oxygen machine designed to treat an array of skin ailments including sunburn, scars, cuts, acne and pigmentation. Its benefits include stimulating cell growth and cellular regeneration, reducing redness in sensitive skin and boosting the skin’s elasticity.
