Ramadan Frequently Asked Questions

The Holy month of Ramadan is observed on the ninth month of the lunar calendar also known as Hijri. It is considered to be the month in which Prophet Mohammed received the revelation of the Quran. During this period, Muslims fast by abstaining from eating or drinking from sunrise to sunset, to teach themselves self-awareness, patience and tolerance.


Iftar or breaking the fast happens at Maghrib or sunset. This is the time for families to come together and share a meal. This year, we are serving Iftar daily at Maui Beach Restaurant from sunset to 9pm. Click here to see our special offer for Iftar and to book a table.


Suhour is the first meal taken before sunrise and before beginning the fast. While staying at our beach resort, you can order Suhour directly from in-room dining. If your stay already includes breakfast, you can choose to have either Suhour or our regular breakfast served at Manava restaurant.


Dress code: While swimwear is acceptable at the pool and beach areas, please ensure to dress modestly and conservatively at the hotel lobby, dinner restaurants and all public areas in the city.
