Two Michelin-starred chef Johannes King to host exclusive dinners at Niyama

German chef Johannes King jets into Niyama to host two exclusive five-course dinners. Owner of the Michelin-starred Söl’ring Hof, Chef Johannes will serve modern European cuisine paired with a selection of wines in a stunning setting 500m out in the middle of the Indian Ocean.

Chef Johannes began his career at the prestigious Franz Keller restaurant in Cologne specializing in French nouvelle cuisine. He then trained under master pastry chef Karl Schumacher at Vienna’s Konditorei Oberlaa, perfecting the traditional desserts for which the café is renowned. Chef Johannes relocated to Berlin to work at Henri Levy’s Michelin-starred restaurant, Maître, then joined the culinary team at the InterContinental in the upscale Tiergarten area.

Chef Johannes found his passion for fresh, seasonal, locally sourced dishes at Hôtel de la Poste on the Côte D’Or, known for its regional Burgundian cuisine. His experience here inspired him to open his own destination restaurant in 2000. Söl’ring Hof on the island of Sylt commands two Michelin stars and 17 Gault Millau points. Gourmands from far and wide have made the pilgrimage to the island to taste Chef Johannes’ modern textures and light flavors in a surreal landscape.

For two evenings only, on 29 January and 2 February 2018, Chef Johannes will bring the cuisine of Söl’ring Hof to Niyama’s Edge. Edge is a modern, fine dining paradise accessible only by speedboat. Set out over the lagoon tinged with the hues of sunset, Edge offers wrap-around seating under a billowing white canopy and sits above the Maldives’ only underwater playground, SubSix. Across Niyama’s two islands, Play and Chill, guests are treated to one-of-a-kind epicurean adventures, from Asian avant-garde cuisine in the treetops to South American barbeque deep in the jungle.

K is for kids, H is for Haven: Four Seasons Resort Maldives at Kuda Huraa offers “Grown Up” experiences in child-friendly sizes

Known affectionately as “KH,” Kuda Huraa may as well stand for “Kids Haven” for the quality and extent of activities geared towards younger guests at Four Seasons Resort Maldives at Kuda Huraa.

“There’s still a preconception that the Maldives isn’t great for children,” explains General Manager Randy Shimabuku. “But when you combine Kuda Huraa’s engaging activities, intimate size, accessible layout and effervescent service culture, nothing could be further from the truth.”

Kuda Huraa kids can visit the island’s cutest residents in the Resort’s turtle pools – where hatchlings from protected nests are hand-reared to increase their chance of survival in the wild – or learn about the vulnerable marine ecosystem with 3D movies in the Marine Discovery Centre. Little dudes as young as six can then swap the classroom for the ocean with year-round lagoon courses with the Resort’s Tropicsurf Surf School. Advanced courses and surf clinics are available for older children, or those with more experience.

Scuba programs are available for oceanic adventurers as young as eight – and thanks to special permission from PADI, the Resort is one of only a handful in the world where children can learn to dive directly among the fish in the shallow lagoon, as opposed to in the swimming pool.

Intrepid marine explorers will also love the Resort’s shark snorkel safaris, dolphin cruises, sunset fishing and Robinson Crusoe escapes; while adventure and sports lovers will relish soaring above the ocean on X-Jetblades or trying their hand at wake-boarding, tennis, parasailing and banana-boating.

After an action-packed day, wellness aficionados as young as 6 can catch a tiny dhoni (traditional Maldivian boat) to The Island Spa for marine-inspired spa treatments packed with oceanic wonders. Discover miracle shells, nourishing seaweeds, wobbly waterbed massages and yoga on land and at sea.

Children aged 4-12 seeking a more structured approach to their day will find all the entertainment they desire courtesy of Montessori-trained Kids’ Club Manager Lisa Rowland, whose daily program of complimentary activities includes crafts and cookery, spa sessions and scavenger hunts, beach games and garden fun. Under-4s are welcome when accompanied by an adult guardian or Resort babysitter.

In addition, a host of standard child-friendly extras await every child: goody bags; personalised treats and toiletries; child-size robes and slippers; complimentary meals for under-5s; and subsidised, tailored menus for 4-12 year-olds in all the restaurants. The Resort’s chefs happily cater to picky palates and will even accommodate early sittings for hungry little tummies.

Kids’ Club also organises extensive 2-week vacation programs during busy periods such as Christmas and Easter. During this time, the daily-changing schedule is supplemented by seasonal activities and entertainment from egg hunts to parties with Santa, as well as evening events including movie nights, theme nights, karaoke, treasure hunts, discos and s’mores under the stars. There is also a Kids’ Buffet Lunch in Cafe Huraa during the Easter and Festive holidays (USD 15 per child; complimentary for under 5 yrs).

“We base our kids’ activities on the understanding that if the kids are having fun, the parents are too,” concludes Randy. “And the best way to do that is to treat them like the ‘little grown ups’ they believe themselves to be. It also helps that Kuda Huraa is a small enough island for kids to feel right at home, yet big enough for those wanting peace and privacy to seek those all-important kiddie-free moments. It’s a win-win for everyone.”
