Ramadan in UAE

Ramadan, a sacred month of fasting and prayer observed by Muslims worldwide, holds significant importance in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) due to its deep-rooted cultural heritage and traditions. As Ramadan 2024 starts, hotels throughout the UAE are preparing for an expected uptick in Food and Beverage (F&B) reservations, partly attributed to the unexpectedly milder climate during this time of the year.

The combination of spiritual reflection, family gatherings, and communal iftars (breaking of the fast) during Ramadan creates a unique atmosphere that is eagerly awaited by both residents and visitors in the UAE. Hotels play a crucial role during this month, offering special Ramadan tents, lavish iftar buffets, and suhoor experiences that cater to a diverse range of tastes and preferences.

In anticipation of the surge in guests during Ramadan, UAE hotels are enhancing their F&B offerings by introducing innovative menus, themed decor, and entertainment programs that encapsulate the essence of the season. From traditional Emirati delicacies to international cuisine, hotels are crafting a culinary experience that mirrors the multicultural tapestry of the nation and caters to the diverse palates of their patrons.

Cothm Dubai, renowned for its culinary education excellence, contributes a distinct flavor to the Ramadan affair by presenting opportunities to refine iftar preparations through our KHDA Dubai-accredited culinary courses. Learners can elevate their iftar presentations with skills and techniques taught by industry professionals, enriching the traditional iftar spread with creative culinary creations.

The combination of tradition, innovation, and hospitality showcased by UAE hotels during Ramadan underscores the nation's dedication to upholding its cultural legacy while embracing modernity and diversity. This unique fusion not only enriches the Ramadan experience for guests but also serves as a testament to the UAE's culinary expertise and all-encompassing ethos during this revered month, reflecting a harmonious blend of past and present.
