The Renaissance Dhaka did us proud

After a long spring and summer break, the Bailliage organized a Gala Induction Evening at the Renaissance Dhaka Gulshan Hotel.

The hotel, located in Gulshan 2 in the heart of the business district, opened its doors a year ago. A sophisticated, stylish design is carried throughout the 211 spacious rooms and suites. The infinity roof-top temperature-controlled pool with its stunning city vista view takes one’s breath away.

Early October, we organized a tasting with General Manager Azeem Shah and the young, talented, German Chef, Romano Kreutx who hails from Berlin. The aim of the dinner was to offer a fusion cuisine between European and South West Asia flavours. The National Officers attending the tasting suggested a few adjustments and together with the hotel team finalised the outstanding selection of courses.
