Reviving Arabian Traditions with Unique Iftar – Mafraq Hotel



Mafraq Hotel, a premier 4-star hotel located in Abu Dhabi, is an ideal attribute for relaxing getaways and business travel.  The hotel lies on a built-up area of 35,200 square meters and a car park with a capacity of 175 and is ideally located 20 minutes from Abu Dhabi city center, 10 minutes from Abu Dhabi International Airport.



Quintessentially Arabic in its fabric, Mafraq Hotel is recognized for delivering a unique flavor of hospitality that offers world-class refinement while remaining deeply rooted in its local heritage. With over 242 modern rooms and apartments, Mafraq offers guests the refined luxury of heritage, the effortlessly efficient service and amenities and a local experience with the assurance of quality.



Mafraq Hotel marks the Holy Month of Ramadan with a bespoke Iftar and Sohour offers inspired by the spirit of the season. The hotel invited us to celebrate the ceremonial breaking of the fast with a traditional dining menu prepared exclusively at The Olive Branch Restaurant.



We enjoyed a gastronomic spread featuring traditional Levant cuisines, live cooking stations and sweet Arabic treats for Iftar at the Olive Branch restaurant. The specialized pavilion has also been filled with a mirage of decorations set to mesmerize guests for the occasion.



The exquisite Iftar buffet offers Arabic favorites including Biryani, Thareed, Mezze platters, and desserts such as Kunafa, Umm Ali, Luqaimat and Atayef every day. After a sumptuous meal, you may sit back and relax over warm beverages and an array of fragrant shishas offered at the cabanas by the pool.




Group bookings are available for a special rate of AED 90 net per person with a minimum of 10 members. The hotel’s opulent Banquet Hall will serve as an exclusive venue for corporate Iftars, which can cater to over 250 guests.

Prices include 10% service charge, 6% tourism fee and 4% municipality fee.
