Each January, our Tribute to Claudia Festival brings together some of the world’s finest chefs to Vila Joya’s restaurant. This festival started as a celebration of Vila Joya’s 25th anniversary and in honour of the founder of Vila Joya, Claudia Jung. It has now become a nine day event with many Michelin-starred and award-winning chefs from the four corners of the globe.
