Six Senses Laamu Appoints Wayan Sudarma as Executive Chef

LAAMU, Maldives – August 17, 2017 – Six Senses Laamu is pleased to announce the appointment of Wayan Sudarma as executive chef. 

Chef Wayan joined Six Senses Laamu as an executive sous chef in February 2016 and was promoted to executive chef earlier this month. Staying true to the brand’s core value of Pioneering Wellness, Six Senses Laamu continues to focus on health in cuisine and Wayan is no stranger to wellness menus and programs. He has a large appreciation for local, fresh and organic ingredients and is keen on incorporating these in all menus.

Balinese by origin, Chef Wayan has profound knowledge of Asian cuisines and always ensures that his personal modern twist is added on every dish. “Experimenting with the local ingredients and with the fresh produce from the organic garden to create a true Six Senses experience, is definitely a call to a chef’s creativity. Culinary innovation through sustainable practices is a beacon for the team, while we ensure that we deliver the best quality service to even the most discerning pallets,” Executive Chef Wayan said.

Having worked alongside Michelin-star Chefs such as Stefano Cavallini and Jesper Koch, Wayan has enhanced his already vast professional culinary skills. His generous and outgoing character is highly valued by Six Senses Laamu guests, who very often approach him for his signature Balinese satay chicken recipe.

Marteyne van Well, general manager of Six Senses Laamu commented, “It is with great pleasure to announce the appointment of Chef Wayan as executive chef. His aptness in delivering the finest culinary experiences to our guests while maintaining focus on a healthy and sustainable aspect, make him a valuable asset to the team and we look forward to his culinary leadership.”
