For several years he worked on many different shores including Canada, Egypt, and the Mediterranean.

Oswaldo’s rich knowledge of the islands and witty sense of humor will ensure you have an unforgettable experience onboard BELLA VITA.

CHEF, BRIAR SMITH – New Zealand
Like many adventurous Kiwi’s, Briar left New Zealand to travel the world in her early 20’s. This led her to discover a passion for food & cooking. She trained as a travel agent and worked in the UK for several years, a computer programmer in the USA for 2 years and as an avid volunteer worker in Israel and the Galapagos. Throughout this time Briar developed her culinary skills which she has since complimented with a number of training courses in the UK as well as advanced courses at ‘Gastronomicom’ in the South of France which is a world-renowned Michelin starred International training academy. This training, her love for food of all cultures and experience in the galley has her effortlessly delivering a variety of cuisines with amazingly full flavors. All dishes are presented with flair and elegance. Briar’s enthusiasm for food and people will win you over and her attention to detail will ensure that your vacation aboard BELLA VITA is perfect.

Her decision to spend her life in the service of others started as a professional butler and manager for the Ritz Carlton, where she mastered the art of her duties.

Thank you for making our experience in the BVI’s one of the most memorable trips Kim and I have ever had. You anticipated every detail, provided the best service. Excellent!

I can not think of one more thing you could have done to ensure a fabulous vacation for ALL of our family. And pleasing 3 generations - not easy! In fact you thought of things we could not have thought of.

Thank you for taking such great care of our family.

Our every expectation was exceeded and we couldn’t have asked for better, more personalized service.

The food was the “bomb” - we all head home a bit more “satisfied” in our stomach area,
