He has worked and managed some of the most decorated establishments in Germany before choosing to settle down with us in his culinary homeland. Markus Pape’s cooking is influenced by his grandmother who gave him the special sense of the pleasure from the native garden. Since 2013, Pape has spoiled the guests of the Meisenheimer Hof with regional delicacies, just like his grandmother used to do, but at a gourmet level.

During this week, Chef Markus Pape will be cooking for our guests at :

  • Show cooking on Tuesday 9th April
  • Gala Dinner on Wednesday 10th of April
  • Chef’s Table on Saturday 13th of April

Guests of the Water Villas can benefit of this exclusive initiative which is included in the All Inclusive Formula. Guests of the Beach Bungalows and the Junior Suites may take advantage of this initiative paying an additional fee and depending on availability.
