Secret Retreats share its favorite dining in Asia with “Secret Tables”.
Adding the final addition to the collection, Secret Retreats is proud to announce the new label, Secret Tables.
Across Asia, in each Secret Retreat location, our hosts continue to scout small, magical places, unknown by most. Some of these places of curiosity include restaurants, handpicked for unique character and passion. There you will find cuisine with a twist, cuisine direct from the heart.
Inspiring chefs creating original, non-traditional dishes and unusual menus using local produce. Food that is creative and honest. Atmosphere with personality and warmth. Core values that focus on sustainability, fair wages and career paths for young, local people. Independent, chef-owners with pride in their business, and the style and taste to reflect the true culture and essence of the land.
“The beauty of what we do with Secret Retreats is that we are always looking for new properties and places that can offer our guests a different way to experience Asia, so that they can meet caring hosts and chefs who are willing to share their passion.” — Stephane Junca, Managing Director of Secret Retreats.
