Haoma’s chef Deepanker Khosla will be dazzling diners at Soneva Kiri from April 12 to 16, 2024, as part of the resort’s spectacular Songkran festival programme. The award-winning chef behind the Michelin Green Star neo-Indian restaurant will be hosting a series of exclusive dining events during a four-day pop-up on the Thai island of Koh Kood.

Deepanker Kosla, affectionately known as ‘DK’, is the chef behind Bangkok’s Haoma – the farm-to-table urban oasis that follows the philosophy of ‘reduce, reuse, recycle, degust’. Named after the elixir of life held sacred in timeless Zoroastrian and Hindu traditions, its à la carte and seasonal tasting menus showcase a wealth of ingredients grown from an on-site aquaponics farm. Blending a socially and environmentally responsible ethos with explosive flavours, Haoma is the result of a deep exploration of DK’s roots with a journey that takes guests through every corner of the immense Indian subcontinent, from the land to the sea.

Haoma earned its first Michelin star in 2022, combined with a Michelin Green Star for outstanding work in sustainability. Aged just 32 years old at the time, Chef DK became the youngest Indian chef to hold a Michelin Star, and the first Indian to receive the hallowed Green StarIn 2023, he also achieved the first ever ‘Champions of Change’ award given in 2021 by The World’s 50 Best Restaurants.

This April, in addition to the exclusive dining events hosted by Chef DK, guests can join the Songkran parade and traditional water games at Soneva Kiri, or indulge in special wellness rituals that reflect new beginnings and themed dining experiences to welcome the new year. Nationals and expatriates residing in Thailand can also celebrate the season with Soneva’s Thai Tiew Thai offer where prices start from THB 95,000 for a two-night stay for two guests.
