The Ritz Carlton's got us covered this Eid with a whole range of activities to fit all our moods.
With Ramadan having cleansed our souls, minds and our bodies, Eid is how we like to reward ourselves with a little indulgence once the holy month is over. The issue that puts a damper on our festive mood however, is never being able to decide on one thing. With each family member having their own ideal way of how to spend it in mind, it becomes a feat trying to celebrate it together. And with the World Cup starting around Eid, compromises will need to be made. No worries though, Ritz Carlton seems to have it all planned out for us with a little something to fit every mood and every person.
Brunchin' At Culina
Ah brunch, how we’ve missed you. Culina – which is the hotel’s all day restaurant – will be having a buffet of Arabic mezzes, salads, and meats for the first day of Eid. For the second day, it's all about a healthy meal with their farm to table experience. Both brunches will have all you can eat and drink including organic bloody marys, mimosas, sangrias and martinis. And because what’s brunch without a little intoxicated hip swinging, they’ll be having a live jazz band from 12:00 PM to 5:00 PM. Not forgetting about any family member, the kids get to participate in a complimentary program which includes arts, crafts and movies while the parents continue their brunching, uninterrupted.

Good Vibes By The Pool
Is summer truly here if we haven't even started on our tanning? Ritz Pool and Grill is where we'll finally be giving summer the warm welcome it deserves. If we get hungry or thirsty in between soaking up all that sun, Aqua's got us covered with summer bites to keep it light or an a la carte menu if we feel famished after those laps around the pool. This is something the whole family can enjoy as they'll be providing entertainment for the kids and a live DJ for the adults. Family time has never been more fun or more efficient. And because we generally just like being near a pool, Aqua will be open throughout the night to cater to our summer moods with chilled music by their resident DJ.
Cabana package price (for the morning): EGP 3,999 per person (all inclusive)
Party Time At Nox
What’s Eid without a party? Nox’s rooftop party will be happening on the first and second days of Eid el Fitr. On Friday, famed belly dancer Johara will be showing us how it's done. Once we're done with the show, DJ Black will be getting us on our feet. Meanwhile Saturday, DJ Martin will be taking over with belly dancer Sahar and violinist Azmy. Besides, if you’re going to be leaving your house at all this Eid, might as well go all out.
Party starts at EGP 750 (all inclusive).
Summer Cocktails at Bar’Oro
To make up for lost time, all of the hotel's bars and lounges will be launching new signature cocktails created especially for us with the freshest ingredients. There’s nothing like a good cocktail to get us out of bed and tolerating the heat. So let's pick up our glasses this Eid and toast to the summer finally being here.
Cheering at Wust El Balad Stadium and Bab El Sharq
For the football fanatics, head over to Wust El Balad stadium and Bab El Sharq at the Nile Ritz in Garden city. Known as the world cup tent, Wust El Balad will be airing all the world cup matches across giant LED screens with snacks and meals obvs. We couldn’t make it to the world cup so the Ritz Carlton is bringing the world cup to us. Well, somewhat. Not to mention, that Mo’ Salah on so many big screens... we can barely contain ourselves at the thought.
Romance At The Ritz
For the romantics who aren’t really into partying and would rather enjoy each other’s company. Make up for lost time by booking in one of the hotel's deluxe city view rooms which comes with access for two to the stadium lounge. These offers come as part of the Nile-Ritz Carlton's loyalty moments package exclusive to Eid.
