Asaf Tasdan appointed as The Executive Chef at Le Meridien Maldives

Le Meridien Maldives Resort & Spa has recently welcomed a new Executive Chef, Asaf Tasdan, who will be responsible for managing all F&B outlets at the luxury resort. This includes the newly refurbished Riviera Tapas & Bar, which Chef Tasdan will oversee. He has a wealth of experience having worked at several high-end properties in the Middle East, including The Nile Ritz-Carlton Hotel and the JW Marriott Doha.

One of the resort's main focuses is sustainability, self-sufficiency, and eco-friendliness. The resort's facilities include 'The Greenhouse', which is a semi-automated hydroponic system that produces fresh leafy vegetables for resort guests and neighbouring islands. The 480 m² greenhouse uses state-of-the-art technologies, including an automated irrigation system that captures and recycles rainwater. Chef Tasdan shares the resort's vision of sustainability and is passionate about using the produce grown on the island to create delicious dishes.

Le Méridien Maldives Resort & Spa is situated on Thilamaafushi, a natural island, and is located in a southeastern pocket of Atoll Lhaviyani. The resort is a paradise that offers guests the opportunity to unwind in beautiful surroundings. With turquoise waters, unspoilt beaches, a separate private island to explore, and lush vegetation, it is a true escape from the stresses of everyday life.

The resort also boasts a range of dining options, including the Le Meridien’s ‘Culinary Season’ programme, which showcases the best dining experiences from around the globe. Other dining options include Turquoise, Japanese restaurant Tabemasu, Waves Café, Velaa Bar + Grill restaurant, Riviera Tapas & Bar, and Latitude.

Chef Tasdan expressed his excitement at joining the team at Le Méridien Maldives Resort & Spa and his enthusiasm for the resort's focus on sustainability. He is looking forward to incorporating the island's produce into his dishes and is eager to provide guests with a culinary experience that is both delicious and environmentally conscious.

Le Meridien Maldives Resort & Spa is a luxurious and eco-friendly resort that offers guests an unforgettable experience. With Chef Tasdan's expertise in the kitchen and the resort's focus on sustainability, guests can expect a culinary journey that is both delicious and environmentally responsible.
