The traditional Ramadan Laylati experience will be offered again this year at the Grand Hyatt Dubai. Hyatt claims their event is the largest iftar and suhoor buffet in all of Dubai’s five-star hotels.
Housed in the hotel’s shiny new convention hall. The hotel staff has been working feverishly to transform the entire room into a special Ramadan experience in celebration of the hotel’s Laylati concept, which was first introduced 20 years ago.
The final layout for the Grand Hyatt Conference & Exhibition Center, designed by Laylati, is still a secret, but we can tell you that it will feature a 20-meter chandelier, two 30-person gazebo majlis, 16 VIP gazebos, hanging LED plasma screens, and an unforgettable arrival experience.
The venue’s proximity to the hotel’s gardens makes it a serene setting for any event. Laylati means “my night” in Arabic, and that’s exactly the kind of vibe you can expect to find there.
13 different restaurants from all throughout Grand Hyatt will be represented at both the iftar and the suhoor.
Meat madfoun, chicken mandi, and saffron rice are just a few of the traditional Emirati dishes served at iftar. Also on the menu: kushari, saj, lamb ouzzi, and a mixed grill, among other traditional delicacies from all around the Arab world. We’ll have halva and baklava and Turkish ice cream as dessert options. Juices, Nespresso, and Arabic coffee (Gahwa) will all be available as beverages.
