Al Manara, a Luxury Collection Hotel, Saraya Aqaba Celebrates Ramadan With Community and Associates
As part of its ongoing commitment to engage with community and employees, Al Manara, a Luxury Collection Hotel, Saraya Aqaba recently celebrated the Holy Month of Ramadan through continuous happenings.
They kicked off their activities in this holy month with a CSR event, as they hosted 100 orphans for Iftar who had celebrated Eid with the passionate team of Al Manara Hotel, and received gifts and Eid clothes. This event came through the hotel’s collaboration with “Basmet Shabab Al-Khair” initiative and aimed in supporting the surrounding community and showing compassionate and concerned sentiments towards underprivileged kids.
Another celebration was participating in Marriott International’s initiative that caters to serve cab drivers during Iftar.

The initiative has been widely appreciated by hotel owners, local communities and transport authorities.
