Guest Chef in Residence
Japanese-French Fusion: A Four-Hand culinary collaboration
13 May 2016
Alila Villas Soori welcomes the return of guest chef in residence Jason Oakley, Head Chef of Coquille and Scarpetta, two of Shanghai’s finest restaurants. A master of modern European cuisine, Chef Oakley will be teaming up with the resort’s very own Chef Fernando Trump to create a ‘four-hands’ menu of Japanese-French fusion cuisine in a mouthwatering dinner.
Many of Shanghai's biggest culinary voices have been singing Jason Oakley's praises for a while now; Jason has worked for multiple Michelin star restaurants and 5 star hotel brands around the world including the Mandarin Oriental, St Regis, Peninsula, the Address, Wynn Las Vegas, the French Laundry and 3 on the Bund to name a few.
Since he joined Coquille as Executive Chef, the restaurant has earned a slew of accolades, among them “Restaurant of the Year 2014” and “Best Bistro of 2015” by That’s Shanghai, “Best French Restaurant of the Year 2014” by ShanghaiWOW!, and “Shanghai Best Restaurant of 2015” by Tatler.
Coquille is an elegant French bistro that brings the romance of France to Shanghai in flawless French favourites and impeccable seafood. Flavours are familiar, rooted in classic French cuisine and cooking techniques, while unique Asian and Californian interpretations add an element of surprise.
Join us for an exquisite dining experience as Chef Oakley and Chef Fernando synchronise their distinct culinary skills to create a spectacular fusion of French and Japanese flavours, the memory of which will linger long after the last course.

“Harvard Medical School scientists found that using a cell phone or laptop before bed can disrupt the body’s production of melatonin and negatively affect sleep quality. And according the Pew Research Internet Project, 44 percent of cellphone owners sleep with their phones next to their beds. A recent study published by the Public Library of Science found the more time a person spends on Facebook, the more dissatisfied they ultimately feel with their own life” (Huffington Post).

96 Hours Blackout
Exclusively for the Crazy Rich Collection, Alila Villas Soori has created what is quite possibly the world’s most luxurious spa experience centred around the elemental motif of the colour black—the “96 Hours Blackout.”
- A VIP welcome at Ngurah Rai International Airport and a private helicopter to resort
- Soori Residence, your home for the next 5-day 4-night. An exquisitely designed five-bedroom villa set amidst artfully landscaped gardens, open-air pavilions, tranquil terraces, and an infinity pool framed by panoramic ocean views.
- 96 hours Blackout: you are eased into sixteen decadent and transformative spa treatments, including “Black Sweetness,” a soothing steam bath and skin treatment of honey mixed with black pearl powder; “Stars Unfold,” a relaxing bedtime warm stone massage under the stars; and “Black Reflection,” a rejuvenating therapeutic massage involving two masseuses working in perfect balance and harmony.
- Personalised excursions with gourmet picnic lunches at staggeringly gorgeous sites, and mouthwateringly delectable dinners on a moonlit private beach—all prepared by the resort’s celebrated chef Fernando Trump.
This once-in-a-lifetime retreat culminates in the “Royalty Revamp,” a sybaritic day of beauty where you are primped and styled to perfection, dressed in your new custom-tailored set of traditional Balinese garments, and treated to the splendours of a Balinese royal banquet. After the indulgence of the “96 Hours Blackout,” you will be recharged, renewed, and content in the knowledge that even Bali’s royal family never had it this good.

Ombak Gets Playful and Provocative
Ombak feeds diners’ sense of fun and adventure with two fresh new dining concepts. Provoking imagination, its blank canvas ‘Kosong’ dinner menu features no dishes. Instead, diners select from pure, fresh ingredients available on the day, and are joined at their table by the chef, who will fine-tune the complete customisation of their meal. A meal to bemuse the dreams of your palate.
Nothing beats sharing a plate of tapas when out for the evening with friends. Ombak’s tasty new ‘Jari and Mulut’ tapas hit the sweet and savoury spot, playfully fusing Balinese ingredients with Latin American flair. Pair with cocktails and a view of the stunning sunset. Perfection!
