St. Regis Maldives Vommuli Resort Hosts Chef Christophe Marleix from Le Cordon Bleu

The St. Regis Maldives Vommuli Resort is excited to announce that Chef Christophe Marleix, Executive Chef of CORD by Le Cordon Bleu, will be the newest addition to the resort's acclaimed Guest Chef Series. On April 6th and 7th, Chef Christophe will present a special one-time signature menu for lunch and dinner for hotel guests. This delectable 6-course menu will feature local produce and meticulously chosen ingredients, all enjoyed in the resort's paradise setting of pristine white sand beaches, tropical jungle, and mesmerizing seascape views.

Chef Christophe Marleix brings with him a wealth of fine dining experience before joining CORD by Le Cordon Bleu, including executive head chef roles at The Grill at the Dorchester Hotel and Foile. He has also held previous roles as Executive Sous Chef at Restaurant La Cour Jardin and Chef de Cuisine at three Michelin-starred Banqueting Plaza Athénée in Paris, among others.

CORD by Le Cordon Bleu is a unique dining concept based in the heart of London, and the first restaurant from the prestigious network of culinary institutes to open in England's capital city. The menus are masterfully designed by the expert chef team, spearheaded by Christophe Marleix, and delivered with unparalleled attention to detail and a focus on delivering the best culinary experiences.

Marriott Bonvoy members will have the opportunity to bid on an exclusive lunch with hands-on experience where guests can learn directly from Chef Christophe in the making of a 3-course menu. This experience includes two nights in a Panoramic Overwater Villa with a pool, daily breakfast at ALBA restaurant, a 60-minute signature Iridium Touch spa treatment for two at the world-renowned Iridium Spa, and a private guided snorkeling tour of the majestic reef surrounding the resort.

During his visit to the Maldives, Chef Christophe will spend a day at Maldives University where he will share his expertise with students. With over 20 years of experience in Michelin-starred restaurants and luxury hotels, Chef Christophe brings a wealth of knowledge and skill to the classroom. His passion for cooking and dedication to using the finest ingredients will give students a unique perspective and the opportunity to learn from a world-renowned chef.

This initiative pays homage to Marriott International's Serve 360 program, which aims to create positive social and environmental impact. In line with Serve 360's goals, the collaboration will provide valuable resources, educational opportunities, mentorship, and more for local students. The Marriott team is proud to be making a difference in their community and supporting the next generation of leaders.

Vincent Pauchon, the general manager of The St. Regis Maldives Vommuli Resort, expressed his excitement about the collaboration, saying, "We're thrilled to have the opportunity to align with a prestigious institute like Le Cordon Bleu that holds such high international regard, that not only places an emphasis on skills but on educational practices as well. Moreover, it's a privilege to support the local community through this initiative with Chef Christophe. We're proud to support Maldives University and to provide the opportunity to demonstrate a glimpse of his culinary skills to students and to our guests. His arrival furthers our allegiance to our guests by providing exclusive and unique experiences time after time."
