haute cuisine at The St. Regis Maldives

10 January, 2024

The St. Regis Maldives Vommuli Resort, a private island resort offering haute cuisine across a collection of oceanfront dining destinations, continues its guest chef series with a three-night residency from Chef David Hartwig of the Michelin-starred IGNIV at The St. Regis Bangkok on February 7, February 10 and February 11, 2024.

“We are honoured to welcome Chef David Hartwig and the illustrious IGNIV Bangkok team as our first culinary guests of the New Year,” says Vincent Pauchon, General Manager of The St. Regis Maldives. “Our resort guests have some of the most discerning palates in the Maldives, and we are excited to present them with the unique opportunity to dine – and cook with – one of the world’s preeminent chefs during their stay on the island.”

Chef David Hartwig

The first IGNIV to open outside of Switzerland, IGNIV Bangkok received its first Michelin Star in 2022 and retained its star for the third consecutive year. The award elevated IGNIV Bangkok alongside founding chef Andreas Caminada’s all-Michelin-starred family of restaurants in Switzerland. IGNIV Bangkok is led by Chef David Hartwig, a longtime collaborator of Chef Andreas and formerly one of his most promising talents.

The decadent weekend begins with an elaborate dinner prepared by Chef Hartwig and his team at Decanter, the resort’s exclusive underground wine cellar and dining room (USD $395++). Guests will experience Chef Hartwig’s signature precision and creativity while enjoying a delectable menu rooted in modern Swiss heritage paired with unique wines.

Later in the weekend, Chef Hartwig will host a semi-private cooking class in the resort’s state-of-the-art test kitchen, where six guests will have the opportunity to interact with the Michelin-starred chef while learning various cooking and plating techniques that are unique to IGNIV (USD $180++). The series concludes with a lively dinner at Whale Bar, the resort’s exclusive overwater lounge with panoramic views of the Indian Ocean (USD $195++).
