The Phuket Marriott Resort and Spa, Nai Yang Beach has appointed Kai-Oliver Kauder as Executive Chef.
A German national, Kai was first inspired to become a chef by his mother, who not only introduced him to basic cooking skills and techniques, but also taught him that cooking comes from the heart.
Having obtained professional culinary degrees in Germany and Spain, Kai has worked with Relais & Châteaux, Sheraton, JW Marriott, Anantara, Swissôtel and more.
Kai began his career at Schlosshotel Bühlerhöhe in Baden-Baden, Germany, before spreading his wings to the Middle East where he first joined Marriott International as a Sous Chef at the JW Marriott Hotel Kuwait City. His talent was quickly recognized and he was promoted to chef shortly afterwards.
Kai moved to Thailand in 2008 as Executive Chef of Hua Hin Marriott Resort & Spa, later joining Anantara Hua Hin Resort & Spa as Executive Chef of the cluster.
After a stint in Bali as Executive Chef of Anantara Uluwatu Resort & Spa, Kai returned to Thailand to work with hotels and resorts in Khao Lak and Phuket.
Most recently, he served as Cluster Executive Head and Director of F&B Experience for Accor, managing three Novotel and Swissôtel properties in southern Thailand.
