Savour moments of mindfulness with unhurried board games. Balance your inner self with expertly guided breathwork. Bond with your friends and family through ‘old school’ movies and music. Designed in collaboration with KAVE, this slow-mo edition of #thisisnotabuffet takes place every Wednesday throughout Ramadan. Enjoy the slow with us.

Giving back with The Little Wings Foundation

This Ramadan we encourage giving back through The Little Wings Foundation. The Little Wings Foundation was founded in 2007 by Dr Marc Sinclair, one of the region’s most prominent paediatric orthopaedic surgeons, with the mission to provide medical assistance to children who have musculoskeletal deformities in the Middle East and North Africa.
