Hideaway is very excited to welcome Chef Carlo Di Nunzio as our new Executive Chef. Originally from Torino, Italy, Chef Carlo is bringing with him an accomplished and impressive skillset and over 32 years of food experience, expertise, and management.
His passion for food is fuelled by the long-held belief that cooking is the only job in the world that brings out positive emotion in others. The joy and emotion in the faces of those who experience his culinary adventures and react to well-made dishes drive him as a chef. Preparing good food makes people happy- it is as simple as that.
Though initially inspired by the Italian palate, Chef Carlo has moved across the world in his mission to make people happy through food. He has honed new skills and gathered experience in Switzerland, France, Romania, Egypt, England, and Portugal before ending up here in the paradisiacal islands of the Maldives. During his time overseas, Carlo worked in international hotel chains and Michelin Star restaurants to better himself and further his mantra to bring joy to even the pickiest and hard-to-please customers.
When in Rome, do as the Romans do- and that is exactly what Chef Carlo practices during his time in the Maldives. To do this, he never ceases to stop learning and prefers to hear from local chefs about the way of the craft. In turn, he imparts his knowledge and as a team, they create some wonderful dishes for the guests.
Chef Carlo has already started sharing creations at Hideaway with countless recipes in the works together with the culinary team. As the resort’s new Executive Chef, he says that he is looking to wow and impress the resort’s guests with his many culinary delights and bring dining at Hideaway to the next level.
We can’t wait to see what he creates and are confident you will love all the new dishes available across the resort.
