Al Baleed Resort Salalah by Anantara in Oman has appointed Luke Borg to the position of executive chef.

The Maltese national will lead the resort’s three outlets and has plans to introduce new concepts including floating breakfasts, luxury street foods, and more vegan options.

Borg has previously worked for luxury brands across Thailand, Guinea, Mozambique, and Malta, as well as a two year stint at Hormuz Grand in Muscat.

“I am beyond thrilled to return to Oman, especially in the unique destination of Salalah where the desert, mountains, and sea meet,” said Borg. “I look forward to sharing my expertise and absorbing customs and traditions of this beautiful part of the country as inspiration for creating ground-breaking cuisine infused with indigenous elements.”
