PAPEETE, Tahiti (June 18, 2019) – Conrad Bora Bora Nui has appointed Guillaume Galvez as Executive Chef of the award-winning French Polynesian resort. In his new role, Chef Galvez will oversee all food and beverage operations for the resort’s six dining outlets and use his global perspective to create new menus for Iriatai French Restaurant and Tamure Beach Grill.

“I am thrilled to join the team at Conrad Bora Bora Nui, and couldn’t imagine a more beautiful setting to work in,” said Chef Galvez. “The abundance of fresh, local ingredients in the destination is truly inspiring and I look forward to working with the team to create unforgettable menus across all of our restaurants so guests can have a variety of cuisine without ever having to leave the resort.”

Chef Galvez comes to Conrad Bora Bora Nui from Kempinski Hotels in Mongolia, where he served as Executive Chef. Prior to that, he served as a private chef in Central Africa and before that held various culinary positions in Chile, Cuba, Spain and Australia.

Chef Galvez will oversee the launch of new F&B offerings throughout the resort with a focus on healthier options and destination-inspired fare – two themes that are echoed in the overall guest experience and part of a larger resort-wide initiative designed to promote health and wellness. Chef Galvez will unveil new menus and culinary-focused guest experiences across the resort including a six-course lobster menu at Iriatai French Restaurant; the Sunset Grill, a new toes-in-the-sand dining experience at Tamure Beach Grill; and the Legends Campfire which will teach guests about Polynesian gods and stories of the Motu. The resort is also introducing a new grilled lobster night every Friday under the stars at Tamure Beach Grill.

“Here in French Polynesia, our cuisine is influenced by so many different cultures, and Chef Galvez’s global culinary background is such a fitting reflection of that,” said Sebastien Pisano, General Manager of Conrad Bora Bora Nui. “We are excited for the fresh approach that he will bring to our entire lineup of culinary offerings and look forward to providing our guests with new, elevated dining experiences.”

Chef Galvez brings nearly 20 years of culinary experience with him to Conrad Bora Bora Nui. He started cooking at the age of 14 through an apprenticeship with Disciple d’Escoffier in Provence, and spent the following years working as a chef around the world learning the intricacies of cuisines in Europe, Asia, Australia, Central Africa and South America. In his free time, Guillaume enjoys traveling, gardening, meditating and spending time on his family’s vineyard in the Châteauneuf-du-Pape area of France.
