Born in North Bali and praised internationally for his culinary skills, Chef Wayan Wicaya has been named executive chef at The Courtyard Marriott Bali Nusa Dua.

Over a career that has seen Chef Wayan prepare meals on land, sea and air while winning international awards, he arrives in Nusa Dua with more than two decades experience in Bali’s finest kitchens, aboard international cruise ships and in premium in-flight catering.

He is also a past winner of the Global Chefs Challenge a contest sponsored by the World Association of Chefs – reigning supreme among contestants from 88 countries.

“Chef Wayan is quite literally a ‘winner,’” says Courtyard by Marriott General Manager, Jeffrey Tyler. “Here’s a fellow who not only brings Balinese grace to the role but also real international cooking accolades. We are absolutely fortunate to have a chef of this caliber heading our kitchens.”

Before joining Marriott, Chef Wayan worked with fellow chef, Andrew Skinner at Bulgari Bali, a 59-villa luxury resort located in the Bukit Peninsula.

Speaking when Chef Wayan won the Global Chef’s Challenge in 2010, Darren Lauder, the Vice-President of Bali Culinary Professionals said: “To win the Global Chef Challenge is amazing and a confirmation of how far Indonesia has come in developing local chefs to international standards."

Six months later, when Chef Wayan was named “Chef of the Year” by The Yak, whose editor, Nigel Simmonds said: Here’s a guy who deserves every morsel of recognition.”

Chef Wayan’s professional resume includes stints as a Sous Chef at Ku De Ta and Chef de Partie at The Balé Resort.
