Your iftar spread includes an international buffet with the signature ouzi cooked the traditional way – underground. There is also seafood, poultry and vegetarians options. Small eaters, save belly room for desserts as you will have an extensive selection to pick from.

Your live entertainment for the night includes an oud player and tanoura dancers – a traditional folk dance where the dancer spins to the tunes of Arabic and sometimes religious music. You’ll also have the opportunity to snap a photo with a falcon and check out a horse and camel show on the mesmerising desert dunes.

Your iftar experience begins at sunset until 10pm at Al Hadheerah Desert Restaurant. It will cost you Dhs299 per person and includes water, Ramadan juices and Arabic coffee.
