The new appointment comes off the back of a strong opening period for the grand 339-room hotel which Executive Chef Robertson said has translated into the dining offerings.

“Langham hotels globally have a long legacy of culinary delights and it’s been really exciting to bring this to life with a bit of Gold Coast flare through our beachfront location,” Mr Robertson said.

 “Since opening, we’ve experienced an overwhelming response from both locals and visitors coming in to try our range of dining offerings.

“The waterfront views of Akoya and the light, airy atmosphere has drawn in a lot of locals for long lunches or early dinner sittings to experience our range of fresh fish and seafood, whilst the infamous Langham afternoon tea served in Palm Court has been a popular drawcard for many staying at the hotel.

“We’re thrilled to be seeing such demand on our food and beverage offerings and adding Rishabh’s expertise to the team will help us continue to grow these offerings and deliver must-visit dining experiences.”

Chef Rishabh said he was looking forward to joining Chef Craig and the wider team in continuing to bring the famous Langham luxury to life through our range of restaurants and growing on this offering in the coming months.
