Julien Royer’s Three Michelin-starred Odette Arrives at Soneva Fushi

PUBLISHED February 07, 2022

Singapore’s famed three Michelin-starred restaurant Odette has arrived at Soneva Fushi for an exclusive 10-week residency at Flying Sauces. Reflecting the Odette experience, Julien Royer’s evolving multi-course menu showcases produce at its seasonal peak with an emphasis on native ingredients. 

Across 10 weeks, Odette’s Singaporean Chef de Cuisine, Naka Xiong, will bring his reverence for nature and affinity with seafood to realise a gastronomic experience infused with vibrant tropical flavours and an ingenious Southeast Asian identity, befitting Soneva Fushi’s idyllic island setting. 

“It is Odette’s greatest pleasure to share our experience with our friends at Soneva. We’re delighted to take the heart of Maldives’ terroir to greater heights, with the show-stopping creativity of our Chef de Cuisine, Xiong,” said Julien Royer, Chef-Owner of Odette 

“This menu showcases the nostalgic Southeast Asian flavours that I’m familiar with. Surrounded by fresh produce from Maldivian waters and cooking among the lush treetops of Soneva is a dream come true for me,” said Naka Xiong Chef de Cuisine, Odette 

Taking fine dining to exhilarating new heights 

Flying Sauces is the world’s first fine dining zipline experience. Glide along the 200-metre zipline route through the leafy jungle to the island's treetop table and open kitchen – at 12 metres above the ground, it has exceptional views across the sparkling ocean. The menu is expertly paired with a selection of wines from its extensive cellars, which house the largest collection of wines and Champagnes in the Indian Ocean. 

During the 10-week Odette residency, Flying Sauces will be serving its usual breakfast menu, while the Flying Sauces Featuring Odette’s Julien Royer menu will be served for dinner. 

An experience to remember… 

The Flying Sauces zipline takes a scenic route through the forest at a height of 5 to 10 metres – with towering platforms and rope bridges along the way, it ends at an elevated dining tower, raised 12 metres above the ground with exceptional views over the ocean. Operating during daylight hours only, the zipline takes approximately 1 hour 15 minutes; the Flying Sauces dining experiences take an additional 1 hour for breakfast and high tea, and 2 to 3 hours for dinner. Each Flying Sauces experience is suitable for a maximum 10 to 12 guests aged 8 and above, divided into 2 groups of 6 guests.
