Philippe Bossert as Executive Chef

It is our great pleasure to announce the appointment as of September 10th, of Mr. Philippe Bossert as Executive Chef

We have been glad to welcome back Philippe in the Kempinski Family after having previously worked in our properties in Djibouti as well as in St. Petersburg as Executive Chef.

Chef Philippe Bossert of the Kempinski Seychelles Resort

His wealth of experience, acquired in renowned luxurious properties and operations through countries such as France, Portugal, Germany, Russia and Djibouti, makes Philippe the ideal passionate and dedicated professional to move our Culinary department from “Good to Best”.

Chef Bossert's impressive career includes training under Alain Ducasse, working in Paris for the Department of the French Ministry, and at several Michelin-star restaurants throughout France.

His father is a chef and he grew up in the business, and when he was fourteen years old he worked at a three-star Michelin restaurant for three weeks, which helped his decision to study to become a chef. Chef Philippe Bossert said that his father's culinary style is Escoffier techniques, which he also uses, but it is not the same kitchen.

He believes "You need passion, and you need to give that passion to your staff."

We are happy to welcome Philippe to the Kempinski Seychelles Resort Team and we wish him all the best in his new assignment.
