As one of the newest hotels in the bustling city we call Cairo, Royal Maxim Palace Kempinski also happens to be one of the best when it comes to world-class service, top-notch facilities and, most relevantly in the run-up to Ramadan, some truly remarkable restaurants.
With this being Royal Maxim Palace Kempinski 's first Ramadan, the Palace certainly isn't holding back, with plenty of dining offer ready and waiting during the Holy Month, as well as some very special spa options – perfect for the hungry, cranky fasting Cairene.
The hotel's European restaurant, The State, will be hosting fetar buffets every day, bringing together the best of European cuisine infused with local flavours under one roof for 320LE++ per person, while a more Oriental experience awaits at Bab Al Qasr, where diners can sink their teeth into some expertly crafted family-style set-menu for fetar for 375LE++ to the backdrop of some traditional live entertainment.
Elsewhere, Aqua Chill Pool Bar is a decidedly more casual option, with an a la carte menu serving up both fetar and sohour dishes, with yet more live entertainment set to pepper the breezy evenings. With European football championship, Euro 2016, coinciding this year with Ramadan, Vibes Lounge is where football fanatics can catch all the big games, while digging into the lounge's a la carte menu.
The grand-daddy of this Ramadan revelry, however, is the hotel's special kheima (tent), El Khedewy, which is set to officially open on June 7th Though the folk at Royal Maxim Palace Kempinski are keeping things under wrap for the time being, the tent will operate for both fetar and sohour, while offering some first-rate shisha, a long line of live entertainment, board games and an Oriental theme that the team promise will blow minds – call 0101-034-4199 to secure a spot.
We often forget that fasting can have an effect on more than just your hunger levels and The Resense Spa has put together some special packages to heal mind, body and soul, starting with the Ramadan Purifier – a 50-minute facial treatment that also affords you a free, de-stressing 15-minute foot massage.
The spa will also be welcoming Cairenes for some special post-fetar hammam treatments, while special membership rates will also be on offer, including a unique 1-month membership for $175.
Having officially opened in November 2015, Royal Maxim Palace Kempinski has wasted no time in showing itself to be one of the most luxurious hotels in the city and even picked up a 2016 Cairo 360 Editors' Choice Award in the category of World-Class Hospitality.
