Anantara Al Jabal Al Akhdar Resort is awaiting guests for a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to dine like Royalty above the clouds at the hands of world-class Chef Nikolaos Koulousias, one of the culinary artists selected to prepare Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s Wedding Menu. The exclusive dining experience at Oman’s luxury mountaintop escape promises an unforgettable culinary journey with regal flair this November.
The ‘Royal Affair’ will take place on Diana’s Point, the country’s dedicated spot in memory of HRH, offering breathtaking views of the sweeping canyon below. Named after the late Princess Diana’s visit to the site in 1986, Anantara Al Jabal Al Akhdar Resort together with Chef Niko will pay homage to the ‘Queen of Hearts’ in royal fashion.
“When I heard that Niko played a major role in the royal wedding of Harry and Meghan, it was an obvious thought to link this event to Diana’s Point. We’re looking forward to a truly memorable experience, to share a glimpse of the wedding that captivated millions, reimagined with an Omani twist. Omani flavours, pomegranates and rosewater blended into the spirit of the royal wedding will be the highlight of the event. With this very special viewpoint as the icing on the cake, there is surely no better way to enjoy the spirit of the occasion,” said Dagmar Symes, General Manager of Anantara Al Jabal Al Akhdar Resort.
Born in Germany to Greek parents, Chef Niko has been pursuing his passion for cooking since he was 14 years old. Having studied in The Culinary Institute in Heidelberg, his career has taken him around the world. As well as serving at royal weddings, he has been commended for his success in spreading Greek food worldwide, recently being awarded the prestigious title of Ambassador for Greek Gastronomy.
During the ‘Royal Affair’ Chef Niko will present an array of culinary delights based on selected dishes from the Royal Wedding Menu with a blend of local produce. Guests will also be invited to an evening cocktail reception hosted by the General Manager Dagmar Symes, and for those spending the night, a selection of in-room signature amenities created by Chef Niko will top off the experience.
