Iftar Tour 2018 - Chris Birks
There are so many restaurants and resorts offering Iftar experiences in Muscat this year, we decided to send Chris Birks to try out three of the most popular. After all this food you can expect to see him in a gym near you soon!
Shangri-La Barr Al Jissah Resort & Spa
The first stop on my Iftar Tour was the always impressive, Shangri-La. Expect a pretty impressive selection of hot and cold mezzeh, salads, mixed grills, Omani specialities and classic desserts along with Ramadan beverages like kamaruddin, karkadeh tea and jelab. The team Al Tanoor have worked really hard on their festive menu and ambience and it’s definitely worth you checking it out.
Open from Maghrib time until 11pm. OMR 19++ per person.

Muscat Hills Resort
For the first time, the brilliant team at Muscat Hills Resort have created the most unique Ramadan Tent by the beach! I was offered a huge selection from their international buffet whilst enjoying the Arabic band, Nahwand, who were filling the venue with sounds from the Oud, Qanun, Violin and Nay.
There’s Majlis seating and a wide selection of our signature offerings and drinks.
OMR 18 per person. 50% discount for children under 10 years and free for kids under 6 years.

I’ve been to this Seeb hotel so many times since they opened and was excited to see their first ever Ramadan experience.

Enjoy traditional Ramadan favourites and international specialities at the sizzling Iftar experience.
