A jet setting chef, Garrido brings a global perspective to Capella Marigot Bay having served stints in Saint Lucia as well as in the U.S., Europe, the Middle East and Latin America.

Garrido will oversee the food and beverage establishments at Capella Marigot Bay and also develop new concepts and menus as well as training his colleagues in the Capella “zeitgeist” which the ultra-luxury hotel company has already started to institute since taking over management of the elegant resort earlier this Fall.

“Victor’s management of Capella Marigot Bay’s culinary team is crucial and they have already begun to deliver innovative new dishes and menus which our guests are raving about,” said Sean Carney, Interim General Manager, Capella Marigot Bay. “Victor and his team will also be integral in introducing Capella’s exciting, new culinary programs which will feature wine and rum seminars and private dining ideal for couples, multi-generational families and also groups, all-in-all making for an unforgettable dining experience.”

Before joining Capella Marigot Bay, Garrido was the Executive Sous Chef for Sugar Beach, a Viceroy Resort in Saint Lucia. During his time there, he was responsible for the property’s culinary enhancements, which included the rebranding process and renovation of the kitchen facilities. He also assisted in redesigning the menus and service sequences for the resort’s fine dining and al fresco restaurants.

Prior to arriving in Saint Lucia, Garrido served as Executive Sous Chef at the Fairmont Grand Hotel Kiev in the Ukraine, and also as Chef de Cuisine at the Fairmont Heliopolis & Towers in Egypt. He was also attached to the AAA Five Diamond Awarded, Fairmont Mayakoba in Mexico from 2008 to 2010 as Banquet Sous Chef.

Garrido began his career with Shula’s Steak House at The Sheraton Hotel and Towers in Chicago as a Kitchen Commis. He then joined Las Palmas Mexican Restaurant in Chicago as their First Cook and after serving a year there was plucked to join The Fairmont Acapulco Princess as their Chef de Partie.

Garrido is fluent in English, Spanish and Arabic.
