Four Seasons Bora Bora Gets New Executive Chef

Heads up, South Pacific-bound foodies! Here's a name to remember: Nicolas Boutin has been named Executive Chef at the Four Seasons Resort Bora Bora.

Boutin, a 26-year industry veteran, has worked in hotels and restaurants around the world, but this is his first appointment with Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts. He makes the move to French Polynesia from Conrad Maldives Rangali Island, where he most recently served as executive chef. Prior to that, he served as executive chef of Mandarin Oriental Boston, as executive sous chef of Mandarin Oriental Landmark Hotel in Hong Kong, as chef de cuisine at La Varenne in Raffles Resort Canounan Island and as executive sous chef of Relais & Chateaux Hauterive St. James in Bordeaux, France. His early years were spent throughout Europe at Michelin-starred establishments such as Jean Bardet, Troisgros and Lameloise.

Boutin began his classical training at age 16 with apprenticeships in the kitchens of France. A native of Chatellerault, France, he speaks English and French, and now resides on Bora Bora with his wife Christell. In his spare time, he enjoys photography, rugby, tennis and movies.
