Philippe Galindo, nuevo director de Alimentos y Bebidas de La Manga Club

La Manga Club, 26th April 2016 – Renowned for his gastronomic flair and passion, the Italian-Andalusian will bring a wealth of experience to his new role at the award-winning venue in Murcia having worked as a chef and executive chef at several luxury hotels, resorts and restaurants across Europe over the last three decades.

As well as enjoying high-profile positions at top eateries in Madrid, London, Marseille, Bordeaux and, most recently, in Perpignan, Galindo also spent time training with Ferrán Adriá at the world-famous three Michelin-starred ‘El Bulli’ restaurant in Barcelona – named number one by Restaurant Magazine in its list of the top 50 restaurants in the world a record five times.

La Manga Club offers guests the chance to experience a wide array of different cuisines from around the world with individually-created menus at a choice of more than 20 bars and restaurants around the resort.

Galindo, 48, said: “La Manga Club is a brand that is recognised all over the world and to have been given the opportunity to play a leading part in the future development of the resort is something that makes me very proud. As Europe’s premier sports and leisure destination, it is vital that the resort continues to evolve and look at ways that we can improve the five-star experience we offer to our customers. Hospitality plays a big part in this and I’m relishing the chance to show my passion for food and gastronomy in a number of exciting ways in this new role.”
