Le Meridien Amman Celebrates the Holy Month of Ramadan with Its Associates

Amman, Jordan, August 15, 2011 --(PR.com)-- Le Meridien Amman, a subsidiary of Starwood Hotels and Resorts, gathered its 350 associates from all divisions and departments over its annual Iftar at the outdoor pool terrace.

The Iftar celebration offered an authentic Arabian experience with an exquisite oriental buffet and Layali Al Sham band, with traditional tarab songs, an entertainment that stretched well into the night. Commentating on this occasion Ms. Rania Srouji; the Human Resources Manager, said: “This gathering has a special significance, as it brings the associates of Le Meridien Amman as one family to enjoy a meal during the holy month of Ramadan, a time to express gratitude, offer kindness, utter blessings, and demonstrate amity.”

Le Meridien Amman is also collaborating with the World Food Programme for this year to host underprivileged families and orphans throughout the holy month of Ramadan to live the joy of giving and sharing.

It is worth mentioning that the band will continue playing every night at the Royal Convention Centre, the largest conference facility in Amman, accommodating up to 1,200 persons until the end of the holy month, giving the guests the opportunity to enjoy an unforgettable Iftar. Furthermore, the daily sahra will be held at the outdoor pool terrace, where guests can enjoy delectable snacks, various drinks and flavourful hubbly bubblies while enjoy Amman’s refreshing summer breeze.
