Ekasit Andaris joins Lily Beach as Tamarind restaurant’s new chef

Ekasit Andaris has joined Lily Beach Resort and Spa Maldives as the head chef at the resort’s Tamarind restaurant.

Ekasit Andaris’ dream to become a chef started when he was a young boy, admiring his family cooking Thai food.

After obtaining his certification of professional Thai Cuisine, Ekasit Andaris started working as a chef at the Blue Elephant Cooking School and Restaurant in Bangkok. Willing to share the delights of Thai food overseas, Ekasit Andaris left Thailand and subsequently worked in Oman, Taiwan, Egypt, India, Malaysia and the UAE.

In 2015, Ekasit Andaris reached new heights, becoming the Thai Chef De Cuisine at a Banyan Tree Hotel and Resort in Indonesia.

“With over 10 years of experience under his chef’s hat, Ekasit Andaris recently joined the Lily Beach team,” the resort said, in an announcement.

“Make sure you taste some of Ekasit Andaris’ already popular dishes in Tamarind. Our insider’s tips include the prawn red curry, and for dessert, the sticky rice with coconut milk and mango.”

Lily Beach has recently expanded Tamarind restaurant’s à la carte menu with a greater range of Asian dishes such as stir-fried chicken with cashew nuts, and sweet and sour prawns. With a flavour rich menu offering a great selection of appetisers, main dishes and sweets as well as the Lazy Susan set menu, there is really something for everyone.

Dining in Tamarind is included in Lily Beach’s Platinum Plan.

Set on the island of Huvahendhoo in South Ari Atoll, Lily Beach is a 25-minute seaplane flight away from the main Velana International Airport. This five-star luxury resort, which perfected the Platinum All-Inclusive holiday experience, features 125 villas — both on land and over water — with private decks and open-air bathrooms with jacuzzis, canopy beds, glass floors and plunge pools. 

In close proximity to some of the most amazing dive sites in the world, Lily Beach also offers a wide range of recreational activities and plenty of relaxation options.
