About the chef

Chef Nattawut Panphruk

Chef Nattawut Panphruk has the culinary arts in his blood. As a young boy, he would go out fishing, then cook his catch experimenting with recipes ashore. A Phuket native, he loves all things spicy, fresh and from the ocean.

Chef Nattawut’s career has seen him work at some of Thailand’s award-winning establishments, including the Water Library and Le Normandie in Bangkok, both included in the prestigious Michelin Guide. During that time, he was privileged to observe and work with Michelin-starred guest chefs from around the world.

His stints on the island include at Renaissance Phuket Resort & Spa and Trisara, where he honed his skills in steak and seafood respectively. That makes him the perfect fit for our signature grill, Sea. Fire. Salt., where dishes such as Phuket lobster and Australian Wagyu tomahawk are prepared on a Himalayan salt brick heated up to 200 degrees, lending an exquisite level of succulence and natural flavour.
