Doha, Qatar (July 2013) – Celebrate Ramadan with family and friends at W Doha Hotel & Residences, where to honour this most special time of year, the hotel will be transformed with the return of the Grand Bazaar inspired souk on the mezzanine floor and the unique ‘Sultan’s Tent’. The impressive set up, with its Ottoman styled deco ‘fit for a Sultan’ will offer guests the opportunity to experience an authentic daily Iftar and Sohour that will take them back to the age of antiquity and first hand Arabic traditions with a modern twist.
Guests are invited to break their fast at the Sultan’s Tent, which will open 30 minutes before sunset for the traditional Iftar buffet, served until 8pm followed by Sohour from 9pm until 2am. Both will comprise a vibrant array of rich delicacies including an exquisite Arabic and Ottoman style buffet, as well as live food stations from around the world. From mouthwatering Indian sensations packed with spices and seasonings, to the fragrantly flavoured Chinese dim sum, or traditional, fresh Italian creations, there will be plenty of options to suit all tastes.
The culinary adventure in the dazzling Sultan’s Tent will be an unforgettable occasion with performances by a traditional Arabic band top off the festivities. Additionally, in keeping with the special time of year, the Grand Bazaar will be filled with Turkish carpets, silver jewelry, silver tea and coffee sets, beautiful pillows, and more, to set the mood for a memorable Ramadan experience.
During the month of sharing, the W Doha has teamed up with Qatar Airways, Qatar’s five star national carrier, which for the second year running will give guests a chance to win two Economy tickets to any Qatar Airways destination per week, and also two holidays with Qatar Airways Business Class tickets included in the last week of Ramadan.
A world of discovery awaits throughout the property; Wahm, W Doha’s poolside lounge will be offering guests Sohour with an Arabic a la carte and signature shisha menu & live entertainment from 9pm – 1am, whilst the Living Room will provide complimentary dates, dry fruits and café Blanc from Iftar until midnight. For those who want to celebrate the joys of the holy month of Ramadan in the privacy of their own home and enter a world of culinary delights, the W Doha’s in-house catering team will take grandeur to a whole new level and create a personalized Iftar and Sohour.
W Doha’s General Manager, Safak Guvenc comments, “We are honoured to be celebrating the holy month of Ramadan with a number of compelling guest experiences that are in line with the spirit of the season.
