Three of the best Ramadan deals: two iftars for yourself, or two for those in need

The National picks out some of the best iftar offers in the UAE.

Iftar at Dubai's Movenpick Hotel and Apartments: Dh68

Benefits: Cobone.com is offering 50 per cent off an international iftar buffet at the Movenpick in Dubai's Bur Dubai. The deal, which includes Ramadan favourites as well as live cooking stations and tea and coffee, is valid daily from 7pm to 9pm during the holy month. You can buy up to eight vouchers per table and children under six eat for free.

Watch out for: This is a group-sharing deal so you need to snap up the deal before Tuesday.


Iftar at Abu Dhabi's Hyatt Capital Gate Hotel: Dh180

Benefits: Enjoy a luxury iftar at one of the capital's five-star hotels, part of the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre . Dine in or dine out on the terrace to watch the sunset. There are plenty of traditional drinks on offer such as organic laban, ayran, qamer el din and kardadeh. Diners can eat every day of the week during Ramadan from sunset to 9.30pm.

Watch out for: This is a lavish affair so expect to pay more than some other iftar deals.


Donate iftar meal boxes for two labourers: Dh30

Benefits: To tie in with the spirit of giving during the holy month, Groupon is offering a 50 per cent discount on two meals for those in need. You can buy as many as the vouchers as you wish at Groupon.ae and Sea View Catering services will distribute the packages. Each box contains dates, samosa and mixed pakora, chicken biryani and a cupcake. The vouchers are valid until August 7.

Watch out for: This is a group-sharing deal, so you only have eight days left to buy the deal.
