Malaysian Borneo’s award-winning new luxury villa estate resort, The Kudat Riviera, has added the cream of the culinary crop to its world-class team with the appointment of Dutch master Davy Minten as executive chef de cuisine. With extensive experience of heading up Michelin-starred kitchens in the Netherlands, Minten brings a unique flair for creating a truly participatory culinary experience and mouthwatering masterpieces befitting one of the world’s most spectacular and unforgettable new destinations.

Opening in Sabah in Autumn 2009, The Kudat Riviera is a unique mixed-use development offering unparalleled seclusion and the ultimate in eco-friendly luxury, in stunning natural surroundings. Along six kilometres of breathtaking virgin shorelines, hilltops and clifftops, paparazzi-proofed two- to six-bedroom villas nestle in their own private estates of up to eight acres each, including spectacular private infinity pool and manicured gardens. The Kudat Riviera will be the ultimate exclusive resort for discerning travellers with an appreciation of the wonders of the natural world: With unrivalled marine and terrestrial biodiversity, the region offers extraordinary wildlife and rainforest experiences, and some of the most celebrated diving in the world.

Minten began his career with a traineeship at the one Michelin-starred Restaurant der Bloasbalg before taking up his first professional position as sous chef at another one Michelin-starred restaurant, the 400-cover Restaurant Chateau Neercanne in Maastricht. After subsequently helping open the renowned Restaurant Cadel Biro, also in Maastricht, Minten moved on to the one Michelin-starred Chateau St. Gerlach, in Houthem-Valkenburg, where he was promoted within one year from sous chef to chef de cuisine. Minten’s responsibilities at this Small Luxury Hotel of the World included designing recipes and menus; managing the hotel’s several restaurants and banqueting operation; and heading up a team of 14 staff.

In 2004 Minten launched Sjiek Kookpunt VOF, two culinary outlets in Maastricht offering cookery classes, catering services and the sale of home-made products, before taking his entrepreneurial

approach to the next level in 2006 with the opening of Cucina Mosae 100% Gusto BV, a 3,000sqm culinary emporium comprising 14 separate high-end food and beverage outlets and capable of hosting banqueting parties for up to 1,400 guests. Supported by his 15-strong kitchen staff, Minten oversaw all of Cucina Mosae’s myriad delights, including a Mediterranean lunch restaurant; a fine patisserie and bakery; a specialist retail cookshop; and a comprehensive retail range of homemade food products, from marmalades to sauces to pastas.

Says Phil Dobson, chief executive officer of The Kudat Riviera’s operating and management company Exquisite Borneo Villas, “Davy brings passion, flair, and a wealth of expertise in delivering top class, bespoke culinary experiences in anything from exclusive one-on-one to large scale banqueting contexts. We are delighted to have attracted such a renowned and creative international executive chef to our team as we prepare for the opening of The Kudat Riviera”.
