Spain: Jehwan Deconinck appointed head chef at La Manga Club

Spain’s five-star La Manga Club will have plenty to satisfy the appetite of guests this summer following the appointment of a new head chef at its flagship restaurant.
Jehwan Deconinck has been put in charge at Amapola and, among his duties, will be responsible for creating a new menu at the restaurant in the luxury resort’s hotel, which received a coveted 2013 Certificate of Excellence from TripAdvisor – the world’s largest travel website.
The Frenchman, who started his career in 1996 at the age of just 15 working in his mother’s French restaurant, has extensive experience working in Michelin-starred venues and will concentrate on using locally-sourced produce from the Spanish region to create his new dishes.
Deconinck said: “It’s a great honour to be working for such a prestigious name as La Manga Club. To achieve success, it is important to customise each course, but always without losing the essence of each product.”
His arrival comes at an exciting time for La Manga Club with the award-winning destination having also recently unveiled a host of new summer dining and entertainment offerings.
Adding to La Manga Club’s already extensive list of eateries is the newly-opened La Princesa restaurant, which promises a taste of Spain with tapas, succulent hams and meats cooked on the stone. The restaurant will also be hosting live Flamenco nights on the terrace every Friday between July 26 and August 23.
Re-opening for summer is the ultra-chic Dharma Bar. Offering authentic tastes of Indian cuisine in a superb rooftop setting overlooking the entire resort, the restaurant will be open on Mondays, Thursdays and Saturdays, from July 25 to August 24.
Elsewhere, there is entertainment galore at the Hotel Principe Felipe’s famous Piano Bar with live music seven nights a week, a range of party nights at Mulligan’s bar and family fun evenings at Luigi’s Italian restaurant and Uncle Sam’s diner.
La Manga Club boasts unrivalled facilities as a sport and leisure venue including three 18-hole championship golf courses, a 28-court tennis centre and a 2,000sqm spa and fitness centre. There is a wide range of sporting academies for all ages this summer, including Real Madrid football camps.
Visitors can stay in a choice of the resort’s four-star Las Lomas self-catering apartments or five-star Principe Felipe Hotel with a seven-night stay for a family of four available from just €1,148.
In total, La Manga Club offers more than 20 bars and restaurants and its own Mediterranean cove beach.
