Ametis Villa Bali Introduces New Chef

  • Published by Ozgur Tore

Ametis Villa Bali announces the appointment of Abdul Halim Hafiz as Executive Chef and launches the culinary “Pay as You Like” and “Street Food at Eternal” concepts.

Originally from Jakarta, Indonesia, Abdul Halim Hafiz attributes his love affair with food to his childhood years spent helping his mother shop at a traditional market and preparing meals for the family. After his graduation at the Culinary Institute of Krisanti Widya Mandiri, Hafiz started his culinary career as a Commis Chef at Gran Melia Hotel Jakarta under the guidance of Chef Joachim Felber, who was his biggest inspiration. He later moved to Jeddah Hilton Hotel in Saudi Arabia to once again work alongside his mentor and honed his skills at various luxury hotels and resorts, including Moevenpick Hotel Bahrain, Fregate Island Private in Seychelles and Hilton Seychelles Northolme Resort & Spa after. While Hafiz’s career led him to some of the world’s most exotic destinations, it has always been his dream to eventually settle in Bali. After a decade spent in Jakarta, the Middle East and South Africa, he finally made Bali his home in 2012, where he took on more senior positions at The Ritz Carlton Jakarta and Four Seasons Resort in Jimbaran Bay, Bali.
