Health starts with the right balance in diet. The precept is the inspiration for our native Head Chef who, under the medical guidance of doctors and health practitioners, set himself the task of creating a balanced healthy gourmet cuisine that complements Villa Medica’s holistic treatments and programmes for our clients.
The most important part of Villa Medica’s Cuisine is its ingredients, which are sourced from organic nature and bought fresh locally. We support practices that are sustainable and compliant with the dietary guidelines prescribed for our medical treatments.
Villa Medica Cuisine is created based on over 16 years of extensive research, clinical testing and information gathered from diverse traditions such as Functional Medicine, Naturopathy, and Traditional Chinese Medicine. Our cuisine complements the in-house treatments and programmes besides promoting your general well-being.
Our Breakfast buffet is a fusion of local and Asian traditions. The only sweetener used in our dishes is a natural produce while our cooking methods ensure that the taste and nutrients of the
ingredients used are preserved in the dishes.
