The hotels’ culinary teams prepared the Iftar packages, which consisted of a diverse selection of F&B items. Associates from various departments within the hotels, including catering, administration and guest services, joined forces to bring the ‘Iftar for Cabs’ initiative to life.

Launched in 2010, the ‘Iftar for Cabs’ initiative has turned into an annual tradition for many cab drivers throughout the region. The initiative has been widely appreciated by hotel owners, local communities and transport authorities.

Chief operating officer – Middle East, Marriott International, Guido De Wilde said: “We thank the cab drivers who support our hotels throughout the year. ‘Iftar for Cabs’ embodies the spirit of Ramadan and we are extremely proud of our hotel teams as they unite to give back and recognise important members of our community.”
