St. Kitts’ Christophe Harbour luxury development Christophe Harbour has welcomed Ketut Agustika as Executive Sous Chef of both the Pavilion Beach Club as well as the award-winning beachside bar, SALT Plage.
“Now is a momentous time for Christophe Harbour’s culinary program as we are planning to continue expanding the repertoire of our cuisine, always keeping flavors and techniques honest and true to their heritage while showcasing regional ingredients,” said Christophe Harbour’s Executive Chef, Barnaby Jones. “We’re thrilled to welcome Agustika onboard and are confident his passion and expertise will complement our team in offering our guests and members a world-class dining experience.”
The appointment comes at a pivotal point for Christophe Harbour, as the development prepares to debut phase two of its marina village by the end of 2017, which will include an 11,000-square foot three-story customs house, as well as the completion of luxury retail shops.
Park Hyatt St. Kitts, the first Park Hyatt property to launch in the Caribbean, is slated to debut in November 2017 within Christophe Harbour.
A native of Bali, Agustika has extensive experience working at several Aman resorts across southeast Asia where he specialized in Asian cuisine and previously worked alongside Jones.
He has spent the last 12 years throughout the Caribbean, including Antigua at Carlisle Bay and most recently at The Pink Sands Club on Canouan Island where he held the position of Executive Chef.
