Farhana's laugh is so infectious, everyone at work nicknamed her "Happy" (Farhana means “happy” in Arabic).  She is very passionate about working in the food and beverage department that she carefully selected to run the The Tea Lounge, which serves the Hotel’s breakfast and operates an all day dining concept.

Known for her attention to detail she adds, "Every early morning for the past four years, I have had to double check the breakfast buffet and every station at least twice to make sure everything is in place and is extra fresh for our guests."

I always seek perfection in every aspect whether personal or professional, ultimately making everyone around me happy.”
