Kempinski Grand & Ixir Hotel Bahrain City Centre Awards Winners of its Ramadan Raffle in Celebration of the Holy Month

Manama, August 13, 2013: Kempinski Grand & Ixir Hotel Bahrain City Centre joined up with Etihad Airways during the Holy Month for its special Ramadan Raffle, giving all diners to its popular Arabic restaurant, Baharat, a chance to win one of a selection of remarkable prizes.

The winning names were drawn by a representative from the Ministry of Industry and Commerce, Mr Saud Al Subhi. The lucky winners were Mohamed Shawqi, Alexa Novik, Konstantino Koufaki, Haifaa Al Mansour and Zainab Busabiaa.

The grand prize winner enjoys one Etihad Airlines Economy class flight ticket to any destination in Europe within the Etihad Airlines network. Runner-up prizes for the raffle draw include a one-night stay in Kempinski Grand & Ixir Hotel Bahrain City Centre’s Deluxe room for two persons, a Pure Spa voucher, a Friday Family Brunch voucher at Baharat for two persons, and a Baharat dinner voucher for two persons.

For a chance to win one of these fantastic prizes, locals, residents and visitors alike were encouraged to enjoy Iftar at Kempinski’s Arabic restaurant, Baharat during the Holy Month. Featuring an array of classic Arabic dishes in an expansive buffet set-up with flavours spanning the Middle East, complimented by live Arabic musicians performing the enchanting sounds of the Orient, this very special restaurant offered an Iftar celebration capturing the festive spirit of Ramadan. Guests dine on delicious Arabic cuisine with a modern twist, and sipped on traditional juices while enjoying the ornate Ramadan tent outside.

Quote from Puneet Singh, General Manager:

“We are excited to announce the five winners to our raffle draw this Ramadan, as we would like to give an extra gift to our special Iftar diners. I would like to give a special thanks to Etihad Airways for providing the grand prize, to the Ministry of Industry and Commerce for their support, and of course, our wonderful Iftar guests who participated in the raffle. This was a way to embrace the Ramadan spirit and reward those who have enjoyed our Iftar buffet at Baharat,” said Puneet Singh, General Manager.

While enjoying Iftar at Baharat, guests were also delighted by not just the palate but also the eyes and the soul this Holy Month. Holding an exhibition of Spice Art created by talented local artists – a tradition started with the official opening of the restaurant in January 2013 – with the special Ramadan theme of Art of Giving, Baharat displayed a selection of pieces from nine artists throughout the restaurant during the Holy Month.
