Hosted by Andrei Shmakov, the multi-course dinners are scheduled at Sheraton Maldives Full Moon Resort and Spa from 20-27 March 2022.
A trip to Maldives just got infinitely more appealing thanks to Sheraton Maldives Full Moon Resort & Spa. From 20 March 2022, guests can indulge in a series of exclusive dinners hosted by Michelin-star chef Andrei Shmakov.
These premium, multi-course candlelit dinners will be hosted against the stunning backdrop of the award-winning Sea Salt restaurant. Whilst the details of his menu remain a surprise, there are certain highlights one could expect. Featuring tartlets with pumpkin cream, yuzu and marinated tomato; seared salmon with seaweed, pickles and horseradish sour cream; baked scallops with morel fricassee as well as a fish coulibiac with champagne sauce and caviar, the list of delights is deliciously endless.
Originally from Tallinn, chef Andrei Shmakov joined Hotel Metropol in Moscow as Executive Chef in 2013. This was preceded by his experience in some of the best kitchens in Europe, including previous training at Noma in Copenhagen. His signature restaurant Savva offers an innovative mix of gala atmosphere, excellent service and modern Russian cuisine that interprets classic dishes in a contemporary way. Since opening, the Savva has received an impressive array of awards, including the highest rating in the Gault & Millau Guide and a place in La Liste’s The World’s Best Restaurants Selection, and most recently a star in the Michelin Guide.
While the dinner is a fantastical dream for gourmands by itself, there’s additional perks for Marriott Bonvoy members. You can bid your loyalty points for a Marriott Bonvoy Moment, which includes a unique sandbank picnic for two hosted by Chef Andrei. The experience continues to get better complete with a private dolphin cruise with champagne and canapés, a snorkelling excursion, spa treatments at the award winning Shine Spa for Sheraton and much more!
Just a 15-minute speedboat ride away from Velana International Airport, the five-star resort is home to 176 recently renovated rooms and suites, each carefully designed to blend into the lush island landscape and invite guests to relax, reset and reconnect. Sheraton has created a dream destination for foodies, with five dining venues, two bars, and an endless list of culinary journeys on offer.
There’s a special and memorable experience to be had for everyone, right from romantic in-pool champagne breakfasts, to HamacLand™ dining cruises on your own private floating island, to intimate Furanafushi picnics in one of the island’s secluded spots or lagoon islets.
For those looking to truly unwind, the award-winning Shine Spa for Sheraton, located on its very own island, offers an indulgent treatment menu to restore balance to body and mind ahead of the new arrival. Equipped with six luxurious treatment villas, a VIP treatment suite, his and her hydrotherapy pool, relaxation lounge and steam room, Shine Spa offers a wide range of holistic treatments that range from traditional aromatherapy and ayurvedic massages, to locally inspired deep ocean therapies
