The holy month of Ramadan is an auspicious occasion observed annually by Muslims around the world every ninth month of the Islamic calendar. It is as much a month of fasting as it is for prayer, reflection and community. It’s been a long tradition for families, friends and colleagues to gather for Iftar during the Ramadan season, not only to break their fast and share a meal but to reconnect and spend quality time together, something that people look forward to. If you need ideas on where to spend your Ramadan this year, we have curated a list of hotels in and out of the city that offer a variety of Ramadan promotions.
