We were invited to the Jumeirah Messilah Beach Hotel & Spa Stay Different Ghabka. And it was fabulous! As always they were gracious and fantastic hosts. The ghabka was a celebration of their key media and diamond sponsors. Chief Editors, journalists, photographers, television and radio representatives were present. And Kuwait’s hottest social media influencers were there too!
This year the Jumeirah are offering two venues for Ramadan dining. The Badriah Ballroom and the Garden Café tent, which is for private gatherings. Both serve iftar and ghabka.
General Manager Savino Leone started off the annual media night with his speech and acknowledging the importance of the event as a great opportunity for networking and meeting all the influential voices at the same time.
The ambience was so refined and sophisticated. The outdoor Garden Café was decorated beautifully and the buffet was delicious. Which wasn’t a surprise, the Jumeirah has always been one of our favorite go-to spots because we know they always deliver on their promise of luxury. The gardens and terrace are so scenic that we didn’t want to leave. It was the perfect location for a laid-back and highly enjoyable evening.
Since it was the middle of Ramadan, which coincides with gergeian, we were surprised with charming children dressed in traditional clothing and singing festive songs. They had goodie boxes too! Because who doesn’t love presents?
We might have been mesmerized by the flowers, which we found out were arranged for the occasion by Alissar Flowers. Elegant bouquets were everywhere! Alissar are known for their unique creations that tell stories and enhance any experience when they are present.
If you are already feeling jealous, don’t be. The Badriah Ballroom opens its doors every evening for Iftar to offer a lavish spread of rich traditional Arabic and international specialties. It is also open for ghabka offering an à la carte selection of Ramadan favorites. Your meal will be complimented by live Arabian tunes.
The Garden Café tent that hosted the event is also available for unforgettable private gatherings for ghabkas and iftar nights for friends and families with an excellent selection of shisha, sumptuous Ramadan specialties and live entertainment. But don’t be fooled by the word private, the space is large enough to host up to 250 guests!
What are you waiting for? If you want to book a private iftar or ghabka, the Garden Café tent is definitely your best option. Or if you are just making reservations for just a couple of people, you still have the equally amazing Badriah Ballroom to enjoy.
