Brad Mercer, General Manager of The Westin Brisbane, said Nautilus Beach Club iwas meticulously designed to transport guests to the idyllic shores of the Maldives.
“At The Westin Brisbane, we are dedicated to evolving our experiences for both locals and hotel guests,’ Mr Mercer said.
Shannon Batten, Executive Chef at The Westin Brisbane – who lived and worked in the Maldives for seven years – said he was thrilled to introduce some of his favourite flavours to Brisbane through Nautilus Beach Club.
“The similarities between the Maldives and Queensland’s seafood offerings are striking, making it the perfect time of year to lounge poolside with a Maldivian-inspired dish featuring fresh Queensland seafood,” Mr Batten said.
“The tuna ceviche takes me back to living in the Maldives, sitting at waterfront restaurants with the sand beneath my toes and a warm Indian summer breeze, savouring locally caught Yellowfin tuna from the island's fishermen, complemented by a tart, spicy tomato salsa.
“One of the local favourites, chilli boava, reflects the Maldivian tradition of shallow-diving for octopuses near the local islands – the dish involves slow-cooking octopus in a tomato and chilli ragout, finishing it off with warm toasted coconut and a hint of lime juice to cut through the richness."
