Shangri-La Ramadan Village

Bringing the magical spirit of Ramadan to the resort’s shimmering poolside is the Shangri-La Ramadan Village, open throughout the month of Ramadan. Perfectly backdropped by the unmistakable Arabian architecture and awe-inspiring creek views, it’s a beautiful spot to gather with family and friends after sunset. There’s a minimum spend of Dhs100 for the standard seating, which can be used at an array of seasonally-inspired culinary stations, the fresh juice bar or speciality coffee cart.

From March 23 to 30, acclaimed chef Greg Malouf takes the reigns for the Ramadan Village’s menu, putting his passion for regional cuisine into a menu that celebrates both age-old traditions and contemporary flair. A four-course set menu is priced at Dhs275. Looking for a more private space?
