Arabian Courtyard Hotel & Spa, located in the heart of the art and cultural district of Dubai, joins the rest of the UAE in celebrating the 40th National Day by hosting an art show titled “The National Pride Art & Cultural Exhibition” from 29th November to 5th December 2011.
The hotel will display the work of several local artists at the lobby and the public is invited to view the exhibit showcasing art that pays tribute to the history and culture of the UAE from 30th November till 3rd December from 11am to 9pm daily. The paintings will focus on the celebration of the birth of the UAE and will include its people, local culture and traditions, animals, the way of life during the old days, amongst a few.
Mr. Habib Khan, General Manager of the hotel and CEO Hospitality Division of Planet Group, said: “We recognised that a showcase of the local culture will be very much in tune with the occasion so we have decided to decorate our lobby in the traditional Emirati style with special displays of art and artifacts to give our visitors a glimpse of the UAE’s rich local heritage. The hotel staff will also wear special uniform reflecting the old UAE to add to the patriotic mood. I am sure our guests would be able to experience the values and culture this great country stands for through these work of arts!”
In addition to the art show, the property will offer traditional as well as fusion Emirati cuisine lunch buffet at Bastakiya Café & Restaurant including live cooking stations for freshly baked traditional bread.
