The sacred month of Ramadan is fast approaching, bringing with it a time to cleanse not only the body through fasting but also the soul from any negativity. This is a precious opportunity to deepen one's connection with the divine and seek forgiveness for any transgressions, whether committed knowingly or unknowingly.
In the UAE, the atmosphere during Ramadan is truly remarkable, with a palpable sense of heightened spiritual energy enveloping every individual. This creates a unique and electric environment as people come together to embrace this holy season and share in its blessings.
Following a day of fasting in the scorching heat, people eagerly gather with their loved ones at home or make plans for an evening out. To cater to the needs of fasters and their families, hotels in the UAE are preparing to offer not only a satisfying meal to satiate their hunger but also a spiritual feast to nourish their souls.
Last night, my colleagues and I were invited to attend a media iftar hosted by the Radisson Blu Hotel Dubai Deira Creek. As we arrived, the valet swiftly took care of our car, and we were greeted by a stunning Indian bride, resplendent in a blood-red lehenga adorned with golden embroidery. Inside the hotel's lift, we caught sight of a poster showcasing the exquisite wedding events that the Radisson Blu Hotel Deira Creek hosts.
As I gazed upon the beautiful decor and ambiance of the hotel, I couldn't help but be transported back to my own wedding day, wishing that it had taken place in a setting as enchanting as this.

As we made our way to the open seating area, we were enthralled by the traditional setup, featuring golden lights, lanterns, and ample seating arrangements to accommodate guests. The lavish buffet spread was a feast for the senses, offering a wide variety of Indian, Asian, Arabic, and international cuisines to choose from, along with an extensive range of salads and desserts.
