With Ramadan coming, the air is already filled with the excitement and anticipation of it all. We’re waiting for everything that Ramadan comes with, but we’re especially eager for what Cairo Marriott Hotel & Omar Khayyam Casino has in store this year! 

As they do every year, the hotel has special Ramadan offers again! This entails everything you can think of, from fulfilling suhoor to delicious iftars and everything in between! 

The flavourful Middle-Eastern restaurant, Egyptian Nights, has “Special Suhoors” that run throughout Ramadan, which includes all the traditional beloved items you can imagine, from fuul and ta’meya to many different yoghurts and pita bread. 

It’s not all about suhoor, though! The marvellous thing about Ramadan is enjoying a feast after a long, full day of fasting, and a feast is exactly what’s offered in the heart of the palatial gardens at the Garden Promenade Café! The iftar buffet has all the Egyptian classics and more, all masterfully prepared by its professional chefs. 

Then there’s Saraya Gallery, which keeps us fed, happy, and inspired throughout the year, especially in Ramadan. The Ramadan menu is diverse and elegant, and includes international cuisines such as French and Mediterranean. A nice change is you fancy some variety.

Suppose you’re leaning more towards privacy, especially in Ramadan, when it feels like the entire city is always everywhere at the same time. In that case, there is a private iftar that you can enjoy, as well as suhoor gatherings with outdoor catering on the hotel’s premises, so you can enjoy the night breeze as you prepare yourself for fasting the next day. If you’re too exhausted to go anywhere, they also have catering services outside the hotel whether you want them indoors or outdoors! You can also host your celebrations at their most exquisite palatial banquet rooms. 

All of the above wouldn’t be complete without one thing, though; Ramadan desserts! We mentioned we always wait for Ramadan for countless reasons, but if we were to name just one of those reasons, it’d be the perfect desserts that come with the month. 

Inventive and creative twists on age-old eastern desserts like kunafa and basbousa are the reason that keeps us impatiently on our toes for the month to come, waiting to see what will be the new thing every year. At the forefront of this is the array of traditional and modern spins on Ramadan desserts at The Bakery. Baked and made with tenderness and love, they carry the true spirit of Ramadan through their dessert, which you’ll keep eating past your capacity because you simply just won’t be able to resist.
