Coco Bodu Hithi to host six-course dinner with MasterChef Judge Monica Galetti
Coco Bodu Hithi is set to host a delightful six-course dinner to its guests this October with MasterChef Judge Monica Galetti.
Born in Samoa and brought up in New Zealand, Chef Monica moved to Britain in 1999 to work alongside Michel Roux Jr. at Le Gavroche in London. She became a household name in 2009 when she joined the BBC1 team as a judge on MasterChef: The Professionals and has gone on to co-present BBC2’s Amazing Hotels – Life Beyond the Lobby. In 2017, she and her husband opened their first restaurant, Mere, in London. Monica is the author of two bestselling books: Monica’s Kitchen and The Skills.
Monica has created a six-course menu, with wine pairing recommendations, which will give guests the chance to experience first-hand her passion for working with only the finest and freshest ingredients to create showstopping contemporary dishes. The exclusive menu takes inspiration from Monica’s South Pacific heritage and celebrates the wonderful local seafood and produce available in the Maldives.
Monica’s dinners will be served at Aqua Restaurant on the evenings of October 23 and 25.
Coco Bodu Hithi, the flagship property in Coco Collection’s portfolio, is a chic retreat where you reconnect with yourself, your loved ones and the wonder of the natural world. Translating island life into contemporary sophistication, the resort, which is accessible by a 40-minute speedboat ride from the main Velana International Airport, offers 100 villas that are surrounded by the calm view of the lagoon and the soothing sound of the waves.
With seven restaurants and bars, Coco Bodu Hithi celebrates and offers a variety of exquisite cuisines, taking inspiration from the Maldives and further afield.
An award-winning wellness zone on stilts over the clear water, Coco Spa is a sanctuary for the soul. Mindful of the healing properties of nature and the ocean, the spa is designed to retreat for an escape, whether a massage in one of the eight treatment rooms or yoga on the pavilion overlooking the ocean and beach. With a range of products from the Paris label Thémaé combining the healing properties of tea, therapists at Coco Spa are trained in techniques to treat the mind, body and soul. An overwater gym within the zone inspires guests to keep up with their regime of active well ness when away on a holiday.
