Soneva, the world-leading luxury resort operator, has announced a unique partnership with the Michelin Guide for 20 dinner events which will be hosted at its resorts in the Maldives and Thailand. The dinners, which run from August 2018 until mid-2019, are part of Soneva’s Festival of Colour, a celebration of Soneva’s diverse array of visiting experts and designed to offer unique guest experiences.
Throughout the festival, some of the world’s most celebrated and decorated chefs, all of whom have come from Michelin starred restaurants, will be hosting highly exclusive dinner events at Soneva properties, each for a maximum of eight resort guests at a time. It is the first time that the MICHELIN Guide has done any kind of event in the Maldives.
The partnership is also designed to appeal to the international foodie scene and cement Soneva’s reputation as an epicurean destination. Under the terms of the collaboration, Soneva and the MICHELIN Guide will be jointly promoting chef events, most of which feature chefs from restaurants worldwide with two or three Michelin stars.
The prominent names include Kiko Moya (Spanish restaurant L’Escaletta), Gert de Mangeleer (Hertog Jan, Belgium), Bruno Oger (French Restaurant La Villa Archange), Yoann Conte (Bord du Lac, France), Pere Planaguma (Les Cols, Spain), etc.
“Gastronomy is now one of the most important factors when deciding where to stay, especially in the luxury travel segment when “good food” is no longer enough. We focus on creating rare, lasting experiences for guests and part of this is welcoming these incredible chefs to create their renowned dishes using our organic and locally sourced ingredients. We hope that our guests will experience a life changing meal when they stay with us, and we are delighted to have this opportunity to partner with the MICHELIN Guide,” said Sonu Shivdasani, Soneva’s CEO and Co-Creative Director.
