Soneva Fushi to host Tim Raue for 15-week residency

The German chef will helm the resort’s Flying Sauces restaurant during the exclusive activation

Soneva has partnered with Tim Raue to bring Berlin’s two-Michelin-starred Restaurant Tim Raue to Soneva Fushi in the Maldives. 

During the residency, taking place from 12 October 2023 to 24 January 2024, Raue will lead operations at the resort’s fine dining zipline restaurant, Flying Sauces.

Raue’s cuisine is characterised by “strong flavours and constantly evolving menus”. He is also one of the few top German chefs to offer an entirely vegan menu and recently created a new menu called Kolibri x Berlin, which combines German classics with his signature flavours.

At Flying Sauces, the menu will include dishes with Asian flavours, German interpretations and Maldivian ingredients.

Raue said: “With Restaurant Tim Raue, I have fulfilled a lifelong dream – but my other projects mean culinary freedom for me and the opportunity to fully live out my many ideas with the help of my chefs.

“Soneva Fushi is a culinary paradise in nature and our residency at Flying Sauces will feature a fresh take on culinary juxtaposition with an exclusive menu of contrasting flavours and textures from across Asia, Europe and the Maldives.”


Launched in 2021, Flying Sauces is the first fine-dining zipline experience in the world, complete with an open treetop kitchen 12 metres above the ground. After being securely strapped into safety harnesses, guests travel along a 200-metre zipline to reach a dining platform.
