Guven Uyanik: new executive chef at the Outrigger Mauritius Beach Resort
The Outrigger Mauritius Beach Resort has appointed Mr Guven Uyanik as executive chef, effective immediately. Uyanik will report to the resort’s general manager, Mr Cyrille Carmona.
Prior to joining Outrigger, Chef Uyanik, a dual citizen of Turkey and Canada, was executive sous chef at the luxury The Murray, Hong Kong. He has also been a culinary consultant for the pre-opening of Scot’s Concepts Singapore; executive chef at Hong Kong Parkview; group head chef at Kee Club, Hong Kong and Shanghai; executive sous chef at West Restaurant (Top Table Group) in Vancouver; and head chef at the Newport Room at the Fairmont Southampton Hotel in Bermuda.
Along the way, Chef Uyanik has also been a junior sous chef and demi chef de partie at Gordon Ramsey’s and Claridge’s, both in Mayfair, London.
“Since opening in 2014, the Outrigger in Mauritius has established an enviable local and international reputation for innovative dining,” said Mr Carmona.“Guven now brings his own unique skills to the table. We wish him well in leading the kitchen team to consolidate, then grow the Outrigger’s reputation for acclaimed dining.”
Uyanik has a City & Guilds diploma in food preparation and culinary art from the UK.
He and his wife have a four year old son. The chef’s hobbies include photography, fishing and trying new ethnic cuisines.
Opened in April 2014, the stunning deluxe property with 181 sea-facing rooms offers a breath-taking beachfront location alongside the turquoise lagoons of the Indian Ocean. Nestled in the nature reserve of Bel Ombre, 45 minutes from the airport, the Outrigger Mauritius Beach Resort blends the needs of the most sophisticated traveller with the charm and tradition of an early 18th century Mauritian sugar cane plantation. The resort features the locally renowned Plantation Club (famed for its Mauritian dining), a wide choice of relaxed dining outlets, a kids’ club, Navasana Spa (with hammam), and many water sports (including kite surfing).
