This January, The Pavilions Phuket welcomes culinary director and former head chef from two Michelin-star restaurant Tim Raue, Chef Christian Herrgesell, over two days for a unique gastronomic experience for guests at the resort. From 14-15 January 2022, Chef Christian Herrgesell will take up residency at The Pavilions Phuket to present two specially crafted evenings of gastronomic delights, combining the diversity of Asian cuisine with the distinct culinary signature of one of Europe’s top chefs.
