Bader Anwahi, Chief Executive Officer, Global Village, said: “Delighting guests, uniting cultures, and bringing our communities even closer together has been at the heart of our operations for more than two decades. Although recent times presented the world with many challenges, we are proud to have broken barriers in the travel, tourism, and hospitality sector. With world-class precautionary measures in place since October 25th, we have elevated guest confidence in new normal conditions, delivering the very best experiences safely. This, together with guests’ enthusiasm and the positive impact of our Silver Jubilee Season, encouraged us to work with our partners to extend this season by 14 days. Ramadan is a month where families come together, and Global Village is the perfect open-air destination to spend time with loved ones. We are looking ahead to the Holy Month as a perfect finale to this milestone year as we continue to celebrate wonder.”
