Following a successful event held at Conrad Hong Kong in June 2015, Stéphane will now be gracing the Maldives with his culinary delights for the very first time.
The announcement of these innovative culinary experiences adds to the roll call of culinary milestones at the resort, including the one year anniversary of Ufaa restaurant, taking place in September. The popular restaurant, which means 'happiness' in Maldivian, marks a successful first year of innovative Chinese cuisine, curated by celebrity chef Jereme Leung. Conrad Maldives Rangali Island has also recently won two prestigious accolades at this year's annual World Travel Awards in the highly coveted categories of Indian Ocean's Leading Culinary Hotel and Indian Ocean's Leading Hotel, further strengthening the resort's culinary credentials.
These events mark an exciting new culinary direction for Conrad Maldives Rangali Island, following the recent announcement of a new Executive Chef, Marco Amarone.
