A Gastronomic Journey with Michel Roux

By Elegant Resorts Travel Experts

Posted: 27 November 2015

Accompanied by a team of his esteemed experts, Michel Roux will bring a flavour of his famous, and highly acclaimed, three-starred restaurant, The Waterside Inn, to the majestic Malaysian setting of The Datai. Privileged guests will have the enviable opportunity to take part in a series of sensational showcase events, to learn from the seasoned chef himself, plus taste his sumptuous cuisine and wines — all whilst staying in one of South East Asia’s most spectacular locations.

Michel Roux, along with master sommelier, Pierre Bat from Bordeaux’s Maison Veyret La Tour, will meet and greet guests during a glittering reception, and converse throughout the exclusive dinners. Having been treated to a taste of Michel Roux’s own-label Champagne, accompanied by a selection of delectable canapés, guests will then dine within The Datai’s stylish poolside restaurant, The Dining Room.

For the true gourmand, there will also be the opportunity to take part in a special masterclass with Michel Roux, to create an inspired three-course lunch, where participants also receive a copy of the chef’s latest book, The Essence of French Cooking, along with a signed certificate. There is, of course, the added delight of five world-class restaurants to enjoy within the hotel itself. The Datai is renowned for offering superb local and international cuisine, within a variety of stunning indoor and al fresco dining settings.

Aimed at both spoiling and inspiring his resident guests, The Datai’s General Manager, Arnaud Girodon, has sought to delight his patrons by attracting fellow Frenchman, and the master of French cuisine, to the celebrated jungle surroundings of The Datai. During his exceptional career, Michel Roux has published an impressive number of twelve books in thirty-three countries, in twenty languages, and amassed various accolades, including the prestigious French Legion of Honour and a number of lifetime achievement awards. There are few more celebrated chefs in the world to share one’s passion for all things culinary, so the opportunity is truly a rare honour for Arnaud Girodon’s guests.

Once replete from their gastronomic experiences, guests can also venture beyond the enticing menus and explore the local wildlife with The Datai’s resident naturalist. Nestled within the rainforest canopy, guests could join a jungle trek, or simply relax and absorb the dramatic scenic views of green-cloaked mountains and striking emerald-green bay. Whether they choose to play golf at the adjacent 18-hole championship Els Club Teuk Datai golf course, take solace in the award-winning rainforest spa, or experience a day sailing the Datai Bay in a luxury yacht, they will most certainly learn to appreciate The Datai’s beach location.  From the gentle lapping of the Andaman Sea, to the theme tune of rainforest life, The Datai is an unforgettable nature retreat.

Michel Roux Culinary Experience at The Datai - Limited Availability
