This April, renowned three Michelin-starred Chef, Christian Le Squer ventures from the streets of Paris to Maldives shores at Velaa for two exclusive four-hands dinners in Aragu Restaurant.
Obtaining his first Michelin star in the late 90s with Opéra restaurant, Lorient-born Christian Le Squer has delivered culinary excellence in some of the greatest restaurants across France. From Le Divellec to Lucas Carton and the Ritz, Christian went on to gain a further two Michelin stars at Ledoyen. Currently residing at restaurant Le Cinq, Christian alongside the resorts very own Culinary Director, Gaushan de Silva, will host two exclusive four-hand dinners on 6 and 8 April in Aragu Restaurant.
Velaa’s signature restaurant Aragu has been voted Top 100 in Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants Awards for 2021. Aragu at Velaa Private Island offers a fresh Asian twist on modern European cuisine by combining award-winning Chef Gaushan de Silva’s passion for culinary art with sustainable practices, using only the finest organic produce and carefully selected ingredients from around the world.
Velaa means ‘Turtle’ in the local language – named after generations of sea turtles that flock there to nest and hatch. From a broader “bird’s eye view” which greets arrivals by seaplane, the island’s exclusive over-water villas are also constructed to resemble the head of a turtle, with the island forming the body.
The resort comprises 47 private villas, houses and exclusive residences. While 18 of the 47 are built over water, the Romantic Pool Residence can only be reached by boat, allowing even more privacy and exclusivity.
