Ramadan 2010 Mubarak to all our readers, guests, associates and visitors!
Ramadan is the ninth lunar month of the Islamic calendar and occurs about 11 days earlier every Gregorian year.
The start and end of the month is determined by the sighting of the new moon. The word ‘Ramadan’ comes from the Arabic root word ‘Ramida’ meaning ‘scorched heat’ or ‘parched thirst’.
The month holds special importance since the Quran, the Holy Book of the Muslims, was first revealed to the Prophet during Ramadan. Furthermore, fasting is recognised by Muslims around the world as one of the 5 pillars of Islam; the others being faith, prayer, charity and the pilgrimage.
In this part of the world, the phrase used to greet during Ramadan, is ‘Ramadan Kareem’ meaning ‘Ramadan is generous’.
We are progressing through Ramadan with overall working hours reduced as per the UAE Labour Law, but, being a hotel, we never really sleep, of course.
During Ramadan, the opening times of some of our retaurants and bars will change:
The Authors’ Lounge and the Pool Bar will remain closed throughout the Holy Month.
Healey’s Bar will be closed in the afternoons and only open from 7.30 p.m. to 2 a.m.
The Cavendish Restaurant will be open daily without breaks from 6 a.m. to 11 p.m. for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and everything in between. We offer a fabulous Iftar buffet every evening during Ramadan, too!
