As Muslims across the world observe the Holy month of Ramadan; the most revered month of the year, a time for deep self and spiritual reflection, charitable giving and reconnecting with family and friends, this year’s festivities are a little more subdued as travel restrictions and social distancing efforts around the world become much more widespread. But that doesn’t mean that the spirit of the Holy Month will be forgotten.
“With people having to stay home this year and adhering to social distancing rules, we recognize that there may be a need to put on hold some cultural traditions and customs without forsaking the true spirit of Ramadan. However, we are witnessing now more than ever, an amplified sense of coming together, community and unity during this unprecedented time”, said Marriott International Market Vice President for Indonesia; Ramesh Jackson.
In keeping with this, Marriott International portfolio of Hotels and Resorts across Indonesia are launching several initiatives to support its hotels, guests and communities celebrate Ramadan given the situation faced globally.
AYO MAKAN DI RUMAH
Renowned for its buffets and set menus during Ramadan, and with people having to stay home, this year, we bring our Ramadan menus to your home – providing you with an opportunity to enjoy Iftar and suhoor offerings in the safety of your own homes, with a range of specially curated Iftar boxes, a la carte and set menus suitable for deliveries or takeaway’s to breakfast. Some of the participating hotels are Le Meridien Jakarta, JW Marriott Hotel Yogyakarta, JW Marriott Hotel Surabaya, and more.
In addition, Marriott International portfolio of Hotels and Resorts in Bali are also offering food delivery and takeaway offerings, available during Ramadan. Some of the participating hotels include
Renaissance Bali Uluwatu Resort & Spa, The Westin Resort Nusa Dua Bali, The Stones – Legian, Bali – A Marriott Autograph Collection Hotel, Four Points by Sheraton Bali, Ungasan, Aloft Bali Seminyak, and Sthala, a Tribute Portfolio. The restaurants at these hotels are still open for guests.
Marriott has a long history of supporting the communities in which we operate and in these unprecedented times, this is more important than ever before. Putting people first is at core of Marriott International and hotels have been going above and beyond to demonstrate the extraordinary collective power of people to help support our people and communities. Participating hotels across Indonesia are helping to raise funds, in support of the front liners who are working tirelessly to mitigate the spread of the virus. Proceeds will go towards purchasing medical supplies for front liners.
Just because most people are homebound and need to be physically apart, it doesn’t mean we can’t feel like we’re part of a community. No matter where people are in the world, they are most likely spending a lot more time at home, trying out recipes and workout routines which they never had the time for. As we navigate through this extraordinary time, it is the perfect opportunity for us to stay virtually connected with our guests by sharing our expertise and tips, be it in the kitchen and at the gym or even with D-I-Y crafts to keep our little ones entertained.
During the upcoming weeks, mark your calendars as we round up a variety of live classes and easy to follow activities just for you. Learn more on https://hotel-deals.marriott.com/indonesia-stayathome/ and subscribe to Marriott International Indonesia on YouTube to watch us live.
