The Sanchaya Bintan Island has appointed Giacomo Turzo as F&B Director / Executive Chef, and Fay Gauna Lugue as Director of Sales and Marketing.

Chef Giacomo worked in a number of Michelin star restaurants in his native Italy, including the Two Michelin-star restaurant La Frasca in Castrocaro Terme, before he broadened his horizons in restaurants, hotels, casinos, VIP clubs and private yachts in Turkey, Egypt, Singapore and Thailand.

At The Sanchaya, Chef Giacomo helms the entire food and beverage operation in addition to his role as executive chef, just as he had at Phukets Panwa Beachfront Resort and Rayavadee Resort in Krabi.

Turzo has immense experience in Mediterranean and Asian cuisine, he is incredibly versatile catering to events ranging from weddings and corporate meetings to a picnic for two or private barbeque, and hes an inspirational leader who pays particular attention to mentoring and developing his team as well as exceeding his guests wildest expectations, said Sanchayas Estate Manager, Anshuman Narayan.

Her marketing savvy will continue to see The Sanchaya leave its stamp on the luxurious and bespoke hospitality and service industry.
