In celebration of 100 years since the birth of HH Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nayhan, founding father of the UAE, Fairmont Dubai unveils Iftar offerings in its traditional Ramadan tent, taking guests on a journey through five senses.
Guests will commence their journey with the sense of sight at the hotel lobby, featuring an extravagant art exhibition, surrounded by water, in collaboration with a contemporary crystal artist, Natalie Dagestani. The eye-catching five pieces of art are paying tribute to the late Sheikh Zayed and created using Swarovski crystals, pearls, glitter and various mixed media.
The journey of senses continues with the sense of taste that guests can experience at the all-day dining restaurant Cascades, which is transformed into a traditional tent, offering seating for up to 115 guests for Iftar.
Led by the Executive Chef Tuomas Heikkinen and his team, guests will be treated to a taste of Ramadan with a daily rotating selection of 26 freshly prepared salads, hot and cold mezze, 17 different international and Middle Eastern main courses including the traditional lamb Ouzi, Fairmont Dubai’s signature shawarma, a selection of desserts including the genuine crowd pleaser - Umm Ali.
The journey of senses continues with traditional Arabic music playing during Iftar, creating the sense of sound; traditional Arabic fabrics used at the Iftar buffet represent the sense of touch; and the sense of smell concludes the journey, when Arabic oud-scented cold towels are presented to guests after Iftar.
Timings: Daily during the Holy month of Ramadan, from sunset until 9:30pm.
Price: AED 180 per person, including Ramadan juices. AED 90 for children between 6-12 years, and free for kids under 6 years.
