With over 30 years experience in the hospitality and dining industry, Chef Jens brings his global knowledge and culinary expertise to all four restaurants in Angsana Laguna Phuket.

Chef Jens was born in 1969 Heidelberg, Germany. Inspired by his mother, his passion for cooking and curiosity to see the world motivated him to start his career when he was only 13 years old becoming the youngest chef with a diploma at 20 after his graduation in 1989. During his career, he has received many honors including cooking for Queen Silvia of Sweden, Thai royalty as well as Hollywood celebrities such as Jamiroqua, Lionel Ritchie, Madonna, Kate Moss and others.

Prior to his career at Angsana Laguna Phuket, Chef Jens had been working in luxury hotels in Samui and Pattaya in Thailand and has 15 years of experience working in Asia under the Onyx Hospitality Group as Culinary Director in charge of corporate operations for all Onyx Group properties in Asia. He had also been voted twice for chef of the year in 2 different continents, Berlin Germany and Seoul South Korea. He has also been a part of the Chaîne des Rôtisseurs Eastern Seaboard as a Conseiller Culinaire which offers profound insights on gastronomic dining.

Believing in fresh and honest cuisine, Chef Jens said simplicity in creating dishes is the ultimate challenge. “Listening to our guests is very important as they are good indicators. I always prefer to tailor make a menu in order to achieve the goal of ultimate satisfaction. Nowadays, we see less of the molecular cooking and find more focus on flavour, quality and honesty, therefore nothing beats a handcrafted dish. At Angsana I will contribute my local and oversea talents together with food and beverage team to create those new menus and experiences that deliver and exceed our guest needs and expectations” says Chef Jens.

With the arrival of Chef Jens, Angsana Laguna Phuket invites our guests to enjoy his culinary creations along with our signature hospitality and stunning location beside a tranquil lagoon and world-class golf course.
