Hyatt South Africa has got into the spirit of the holy month of Ramadan by launching an Iftaar and Suhoor offering for the duration of the fasting period.
The buffet will be available to inhouse guests and local patrons at all properties in Cape Town and Johannesburg.
“We were encouraged and pleased by the response we had last year and felt that it was necessary to continue with this offering again and build on it,” explains Asif Raza, Cluster General Manager for Hyatt South Africa.
“Our food and beverage team led by recently appointed speciality chef, Asif Mughal, have curated a delicious yet versatile menu that will include Arabic, Indian, Pakistani and South African dishes in the form of salads, hot and cold starters, main meals, desserts and traditional Ramadan beverages,” Raza says.
The Iftaar buffet at Hyatt House Johannesburg Rosebank and Hyatt House Johannesburg Sandton will cost R275 (€17) per person, with children between six and 12 years old paying R150 (€9) and children under six eating free.
The Iftaar buffet at Hyatt Regency Cape Town will cost R299 (€19) per person, with children between six and 12 years old paying R150 (€9) and children under six eating free.
The Suhoor buffet will cost R150 (€9) per person at all three properties. For guests staying at the hotel, the cost is included in the room rate.
Guests requesting privacy during the Iftaar buffet or looking for spaces that can accommodate groups can contact the hotels directly with their requests.
On-site prayer facilities are also available at all three properties.
Editor’s note: Iftaar is the meal served at the end of the day during Ramadan to break the day's fast. It literally means ‘breakfast’ and is served at sunset during each day of Ramadan as Muslims break the daily fast. The other meal, which is taken in the morning (pre-dawn) during Ramadan, is called Suhoor.
