Executive Chef Michael Kratz
Angsana Laguna Phuket has announced the arrival of Executive Chef Michael Kratz. Chef Michael brings over 30 years of knowledge and experience in the food and hospitality industry to the resort. With his passion for classical French, and modern Western cuisine as well as a profound love of Thai cooking, Chef Michael will enhance the menu offerings for all four restaurants in Angsana Laguna Phuket and develop new signature food & wine pairings.

Born in Germany, Chef Michael moved to Australia in 1982 when he was just 17 years old to embark on a career in the restaurant industry. He has previously worked as the executive chef and food operations manager for Australian Leisure and Hospitality Group (ALH) where he was in charge of four Australian states. At ALH, he was involved in many acquisitions and the transformation of struggling food outlets to profitable and exciting food destinations. He has also worked for Disney Cruise Line where he developed a leadership style and approach to cooking which earned him the respect of his peers and the admiration of his staff.

Describing his management style as “empowering and flexible”, Chef Michael engages the people working for him and empowers them to work independently. Many of the chefs who have worked under him have gone on to run their own kitchens, won apprenticeship awards or even become part of the culinary crew for the Australian Olympic Team.

With the arrival of this successful new chef, Angsana Laguna Phuket invites guests to enjoy Angsana Laguna Phuket’s culinary creations along with its signature hospitality and gorgeous location beside a tranquil lagoon and world-class golf course.
