Kapila Rosan – Head Chef, Mercure Maldives Kooddoo Resort
Kapila joined the culinary team at Mercure Maldives Kooddoo in 2017. He’s worked at leading hotels all over the Maldives for over 25 years.
“For as long as I can remember, I’ve had a passion for cooking. As a chef, I believe that the better you get, the greater the challenges you seek. My team and I spend months developing and refining a dish, until we feel we’ve taken our cooking to a new level.
I find inspiration in the organic vegetables, herbs and spices that grow right here on the island in our Chef’s Garden. I especially love the local chilis, which give dishes a distinctive flavour. My favourite dish is traditional Maldivian roasted fish, fihunu mas, served with roshi, the local flatbread.
I believe it’s important to have a clear concept of what a restaurant means to a resort. At Mercure Maldives, our aim is offer our guests a 5-star dining experience at a 4-star resort. When they appreciate our food, it gives me a fresh shot of energy every day.”
