Saudi Arabia gears up for Ramadan

KSA restaurants and workplaces are adapting their offering and opening hours in Holy Month

While dining hours may be reduced during Ramadan, the hospitality industry can innovate to cover possible shortfalls in revenue, as shown by LPM Riyadh.

The popular outpost of the Dubai restaurant based in the Saudi capital has announced that it will be marking the Holy month of Ramadan by launching a collection of designer desserts to be enjoyed at home.

Ideal for gifting or hosting, the especially curated Ramadan dessert box comprises six limited-edition creations. Available throughout Ramadan, the selection will be available for pickup via special order at LPM Riyadh.

Flavours include ‘Dark Circle’, a rich dessert made with chocolate mousse, biscuit jaconde, hazelnut mousseline and chocolate glaze; the light and airy white chocolate and raspberry sponge cake, and ‘The Petit Gateau’, comprising almond sponge, mascarpone cream, mango, pineapple and raspberry. 

Priced at SAR350, the Ramadan dessert box will be ready for pickup within 24 hours from ordering.  


The kingdom’s Ramadan working hours have also been announced by the Saudi Ministry of Human Resources and Social Development. 

The working day for the private sector will be reduced by three hours to a total of six hours per day during the month of Ramadan. Start and end times will be left to each company’s discretion. Meanwhile, set timings for public sector working hours have been announced from 10am and to 3pm, adding up to a total of five working hours per day.

The beginning of Ramadan is based on when the crescent moon coincides with the astronomical new moon and is likely to start on 2 April in 2022 with Eid predicted to begin 2 May 2022.
