It’s Iftar season and most often we’re confused while choosing a place to break bread. Sheraton Bahrain Hotel’s Ramadan Iftar is always a preferred one on the island.
The Iftar takes place in the grand Awali Ballroom at the Sheraton Hotel. Located on the ground floor, the ballroom boasts a spacious pre-function area. Lined with Italian terracotta tiled floors and traditional Arabic décor strewn across the palatial space in neutral colour tones, the place is as welcoming and charming as Bahrain itself. The billowing arches are finely engraved with mosaic, detailed in carved mahogany wood paneling and give way to a twin tent roof with stunning wrought iron chandeliers creating a distinct and sophisticated ambience.
The Ballroom caters to over 5000 guests each year and is quite popular among locals and also entices groups from Saudi Arabia to join the feast.
While the decor may lull you into a deep state of calmness, witnessing the range of delicacies on display will set your stomach rumbling into a frenzy. A carefully curated spread of hot & cold mezzes, featuring the finest of cheeses, the richest of dates, and the freshest produce is enough to satisfy your appetite. While the tabouleh and mini koftas ooze goodness, the biryani and harris chicken have way more to offer. A selection of main course dishes that feature locally derived ingredients, including the widely celebrated hammour and lamb, truly make a feast. But you must keep in mind when having your pick that you need to have room for dessert.
An entire room is dedicated to a lineup of sweet decadence. With a live crepe station and a range of melt in your mouth ice creams, the desserts are already winning. But it doesn’t end there. From one end of the room, you have on display Arabic desserts dripping in sugar syrup, baklavas, kunafas, Umm Ali, a range of Indian desserts, plus French pastries and beautifully done chocolate treats. If you have a sweet tooth, you will be missing out on the crème de la crème of the Sheraton Iftar. So arrive at Sheraton to be swept off your feet this Ramadan.
