An Evening with Lior Suchard

Lior Suchard’s mind-blowing performances of miraculous predictions, influencing thoughts and startling mind reading have made him the most sought-after mentalist in the world. While at Soneva Fushi last year, he performed one intimate show on Christmas Eve 2022, and took guests on an incredible journey through the wonders of the human brain.

What’s On

Our Soneva Stars calendar features exclusive experiences with visiting Michelin-starred chefs, wellness specialists and sporting legends.

Maria José San Román

María is a Michelin-starred Spanish chef and restaurateur, renowned for her celebration of iconic Spanish ingredients, refreshingly authentic culinary style and exceptionally high standards. Her signature approach is founded on the low-key evolution of the natural flavours found in the best ingredients that Spain has to offer. Based in Alicante, she is the proprietor of Grupo Gourmet Alicante, a collection of six restaurants and an artisan bakery workshop that sets a new paradigm in Spanish gastronomy. With her Michelin-starred restaurant Monastrell, this high-energy, highly creative visionary has returned to her roots to explore natural foods and healthy approaches to world-class cuisine. Her menu pays homage to its Mediterranean location, showcasing a bounty of locally sourced ingredients from extra virgin olive oil, local rice varieties, seafood and saffron, to vegetables grown in her own “huerta”, and artisan breads created in her bakery workshop. She is a frequent speaker and instructor for various international events and forums around the world such as Madrid Fusión, the Culinary Institute of America in California, Food and Fun in Iceland, and the Congress of Gastronomy and Neuroscience at Valencia.
