The Khalidiya Palace Rayhaan by Rotana Joined forces with Zayed University to remind the guests of the true spirit of the holy month of Ramadan. Present in this gesture were representatives from Khalidiya Palace Rayhaan by Rotana and students from the international club of Zayed University.
Small lanterns and small cards with quotes about forgiveness, the Emirati culture and the importance of Ramadan were distributed to the hotels’ guests to share with the guests and residents the spirit of the holy month of Ramadan in the UAE.
“It always warms my heart to see this type of initiatives, even though it’s a small gesture but I am sure it left a huge impression on our guests and our team. As we are entering the last days of Ramadan I hope everyone had a great month and had a chance to strengthen family and community ties” said Eleni Tsolakou, the General Manager at Khalidiya Palace Rayhaan by Rotana.
The lantern referred to as Fanous in Arabic is a term of Greek origin translated to “candle”. It means ‘light’ or ‘lantern’. It was used in its meaning of “the light of the world,” and is a symbol of hope, as in “light in the darkness”.
