Park Hyatt Maldives Appoints Liam Crotty as Executive Chef

Maldives Promotion House – Park Hyatt Maldives Handahaa has announced the appointment of Liam Crotty as its new Executive Chef.

Liam first became passionate about cooking at the young age of 13 whilst working in a restaurant in a small fishing village in East Cork, Ireland. After seeing the fresh fish coming in everyday from the owner’s trawlers, Liam experienced first-hand the importance of cooking with the freshest ingredients. Before long, he was working in some of the best restaurants in East Cork, receiving fantastic training from some of Ireland’s finest Chefs. It was in Kenmare Park hotel, acclaimed for being awarded the first Michelin star outside of the capital, Dublin, where Liam became Chef de Partie and from there his culinary career took off. He soon became the Sous Chef at the award winning Packies seafood restaurant where he spent 3 years in charge of the kitchen.

An avid traveler and passionate about exploring different cuisine, Liam later moved out of Ireland and began his career with Hyatt in 2007, working at Grand Hyatt Dubai. He soon moved onto the Hyatt Regency in Dubai in November 2009 as Chef de Cuisine where he managed a large team of Chefs, handling operations throughout all of the hotel’s outlets. The opportunity to work for his third Hyatt brand at Park Hyatt Maldives Hadahaa came as a great interest to him, not only to experience the beauty of this remote island paradise but most importantly to bring the finest and freshest fish to the tables at both our restaurants. Liam is a Chef who creates menus based on who he is and where he is.

Park Hyatt Maldives Hadahaa is situated on a pristine island 400 kilometres south of Malé in the North Huvadhoo (Gaafu Alifu) Atoll, one of the largest and deepest atolls in the world. Resort’s 50 Maldivian villas are luxuriously designed and furnished to ensure guest comfort and privacy, whilst maintaining environmental sensitivity. Nestled within the natural vegetation and only a few steps from the turquoise waters of the Indian Ocean are 16 Park Villas and 20 Park Pool villas, with a further 14 Park Water Villas all enjoying direct access to the coral-filled waters below and breathtaking panoramic sunset views.
