Chef Mads Refslund to join W Maldives as the last stop of his Asia Tour


Michelin-starred chef, Mads Refslund will be joining W Maldives from December 5 to 6 as the last stop of his Asia Tour. From November 23 till December 6, Chef Mads is visiting W Singapore, W Koh Samui and W Bangkok, offering exclusive culinary experiences to guests.

Recognized as one of most creative chefs in the world, Chef Mads will take over W Maldives' kitchen for two interactive dinners based on the concept of “fire and ice”. The “ice” dinner will focus on cold and raw products to emphasise what is inherent in the very nature of the dish, while the “fire” dinner is more smoke dominated and will bring back the memory of his grandmother’s cooking with wood and charcoal.

Chef Mads — A pioneer of Nordic cuisine, describes his philosophy of cooking as “bonding rawness”, which entails bringing out natural, organic flavours of the ingredients without changing the taste with excessive preparation or cooking.

“We are honoured to welcome a world-renowned chef of such calibre as Mads Refslund to W Maldives and look forward to thrilling our guests with his culinary sensations as we continue with our series of visiting international chefs,” speaking ahead of Chef Mad’s visit Anuj Sharma, General Manager of W Maldives said.

W Maldives features 77 over water and beach escapes all with private pools, decks and stunning ocean views. The brand’s iconic WET® Deck and the AWAY® Spa are on the spotlight, along with one of the best reefs in the Maldives for snorkelling and diving. For more information, visit
