In association with Fine Dining Lovers, the event is a continuation of an exclusive series at Anantara resorts across Maldives, featuring culinary collaborations with San Pellegrinos Fine Dining Lovers and award-winning chefs from the 50 Best restaurant series and beyond.

Food lovers will be able to enjoy an evening of exotic flavours and shared conversation on 11 May with Bobby Chinn as Guest Chef.

This collaboration takes healthy eating to a whole different level and fits our luxury offering, with some items being incorporated to our daily culinary choices.
