“Ramadhan is a wonderful example of how we Malaysians come together at every occasion, whilst respectful of each other’s’ religions, beliefs and practices. At Le Meridien Kota Kinabalu we are pleased to showcase this harmony and heritage through the sheer variety of dishes and cuisines at Latest Recipe and to share that with our diners and guests from other countries. On behalf of the management and associates of our hotel, I take this opportunity to wish all our Muslim guests ‘Selamat Berpuasa’.”-Pavin Ravindran, Director of Food & Beverage
