Iftar on a yacht charter in Dubai

The holy month of Ramadan is here. After abstaining from eating and drinking from sunrise to sunset, our Muslim brothers and sisters gather at sunset for the evening meal that breaks their daily fast – the iftar. One of the religious observances of Ramadan, iftar is usually done as a community where people gather to break their fast together. It is taken right after Maghrib, the prayer time around sunset. 

Traditionally, iftar begins by eating three dates as what the Islamic Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) did to break his fast. Doctors also highly recommend breaking the fast this way to properly bring nourishment back to the body after the day-long abstinence. 

In Dubai, there are different ways to enjoy the Ramadan iftar and dinner. From simple meals that will not break the bank to five star feasts, everybody can enjoy an extraordinary iftar party at restaurants and hotels. Consisting of a wide variety of international cuisine and beverages, iftar buffets are available from Dhs 80 to over Dhs 200. Open from sunset onwards, these places offer specialty dishes from around the world for kids and adults to enjoy. There are Arabic, Indian, Continental, and Oriental dishes available from different food outlets all over the city. 

Families also prepare food at home and invite friends over for the evening meal. At home, equally delicious dishes can be prepared like salads, vegetables, kebab, samosa, pasta, and many more. It is advised not to overeat on heavy and fried foods.

For a truly unique iftar experience, pioneer yacht charter company Al Wasl Yachts offers special iftar cruise and dinner packages for everyone from families to friends to companies. 

When you rent a yacht in Dubai, you can cruise the seas for at least two hours and arrange for iftar and dinner to be served onboard. In addition to the complimentary refreshments, guests can choose from a wide variety of dining options. They can arrange for a simple fruit and barbecue platter or a lavish dinner buffet. Arabic, Indian, Asian, and Continental dishes are available. 

Sharing iftar with friends and family also gives more meaning and significance to the event. Reserve the largest of their yacht, the 85-foot premium luxury yacht Al Shujaat 9, and celebrate a special iftar party with your friends, family, or team mates. Perfect for up to 37 guests, you can have a grand iftar as you share the blessings of food with the nearest and dearest people in your life.
