New executive chef for the Four Seasons Hotel Amman
Saa’d Al Fawadleh has been promoted to the role of executive chef at the Four Seasons Hotel Amman, and becomes the first Jordanian to take on this role at the Amman property.
He will now be responsible for overseeing all of the hotel's food and beverage operations, which includes Olea Restaurant, The Foyer Lounge and Five Grill & Lounge, as well as in-room dining and banqueting events.
Jordanian-born Alfawadleh was raised in the capital city of Amman. His father was his inspiration, who was a chef in the Jordanian Army. When he was 15 years old, he took on his first culinary position as an intern at a hotel in Amman.
With close to 20 years of culinary experience, he has been around the world with hotels that include Four Seasons Resort Lanai, Fairmont Hotels & Resorts in Hawaii, Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group in Atlanta, Crowne Plaza in Amman, Marriot Hotel in Knoxville, Emirates Palace Hotel and Intercontinental Hotel in Abu Dhabi.
Al Fawadleh has been with Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts since 2014 when he joined Four Seasons Resort Lanai in Hawaii as sous chef, and attended task force at Four Seasons Hotel Los Angeles at Beverly Hills and Four Seasons Resort Hualalai during that same period.
He then moved back to his home town in Jordan to take on the role of executive sous chef at the Amman property.
