Robert Mujagic joins Hilton Colombo as Executive Chef

Robert Mujagic, who has over 28 years of extensive culinary experience, is the new executive chef at Hilton Colombo. He is a native of Stuttgart, Germany, who joined the culinary business at the age of 17. He started his apprenticeship as chef at a small gault Millau & Michelin Star-rated fine dining restaurant.

During his journey to become an executive chef, Robert had the opportunity to work in several countries, namely Germany, Russia, the Maldives, Croatia, Turkey, Thailand and now Sri Lanka. He was also employed for over 3 years on luxury 5-star cruise liners like Vistafjord, Royal Viking Sun, Seaborn Legend and Azamara Journey, and has sailed around the world twice; these experiences taught him about many different cultures and cooking techniques.

Robert says, “Moving to Sri Lanka was a dream come true. After extensive travelling, it was always my dream to work in this beautiful country; and joining Hilton Colombo and being part of the family was a long-awaited opportunity. I feel like I have the freedom to express myself to the fullest and be creative in trying out new things, which makes me feel like this is a home away from home.”
