Starred Chef David Toutain Curates Heritage Le Château’s Summer Menu

Starred Chef David Toutain Curates Heritage Le Château’s Summer Menu

The Heritage mother brand encompasses a dozen restaurants spread across its two uber-luxurious hotels, Heritage Le Telfair and Heritage Awali. There are cuisines and menus for every palate, whether vegetarian, vegan, carnivorous, or flexitarian. The particularity of Heritage Le Château is that it is set on the large estate of Bel Ombre and not inside one of our hotels. Recently the old colonial home underwent major restoration works by Perrot & Richard, the architecture firm that also restored the Sainte Chapelle, the Grand Palais and the Comédie Française. With the château being restored to its former glory, it only made sense to curate a summer menu that reflects the exquisite beauty of the Château.

Our Team, Our Backbone

Our Team, Our Backbone

No man is an island, and Veranda Leisure and Hospitality is no exception. Hotels are bought and sold, rebranded and revamped, but at the root of every hard-to-pull-off triumph is something profoundly human, without which the quality of our hospitality would be hollow: our people. The people who power our hotels are the solid foundation upon which our values, behaviours and standards are built.
