Their dedicated team provides everything from mouth-watering meals to seasonal spa treatments and endless new year celebrations so you and your loved ones will feel the festive spirit all around.

Indulge in delectable Christmas-inspired desserts in La Gourmandise or an elegant five-course Christmas Eve in the Tea Lounge. There’s no better place to ring in the New Year than in Cairo on the Nile with a pan-Asian experience in Nairu, Greek celebrations at Zoé, and a Brazilian churrascaria buffet at Xodo.

Spread the Christmas cheer with cosy Christmas cocktails served throughout the hotel’s restaurants and bars starting from December 20th. Guests can savour a range of alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages from their festive cocktail menu, including Apple Cider, Spiced Hot Chocolate, Mulled Wine, and Cinnamon Martinis.

If you are looking for the perfect gift for a friend, the Four Seasons artisans have got just the thing for you. Their specially curated Christmas hampers are available at La Gourmandise. Each one comes stocked full of festive goodies and holiday staples, from panettone, stollen, and homemade jam to pain d’epices, olive oil, macarons, Christmas cookies and a Jardin Du Nil wine. Please place your order 24 hours in advance to get your hands on one.

La Gourmandise also has special holiday-themed treats, goodies, and delicious Christmas cakes crafted by the talented Four Seasons pastry chefs that will have you jumping for joy. So pick up your Christmas cakes, biscuits and other treats until January 7th

Of course, desserts are just the start when it comes to celebrations at the Four Seasons. On Christmas Eve, the Tea Lounge will set the scene for a sumptuous five-course French inspired menu with live entertainment beneath the iconic ocular.

We know you want to party all night this New Year’s Eve, and Xodó restaurant will be the hottest spot in town. Brazilian Chef Guilherme Reis will craft a special Brazilian churrascaria-inspired buffet that includes cold and hot Brazilian appetisers, salads, and a Brazilian meat carnival serving up to eight prime cuts. Climb aboard the First Nile Boat to experience true Brazilian carnival spirit as we step into 2023.

There are endless possibilities at the Four Seasons, and guests can experience a culinary journey to The Far East this New Year’s without leaving Cairo as they indulge in a vibrant set menu where a trio of Asian cultures meet. Nairu restaurant on the First Nile Boat is serving the best of Indian, Chinese, and Japanese cuisines alongside stunning Nile views.

If Asian isn’t your thing, celebrate new beginnings in a Greek style at Zoé, with endless fun and friends. Welcome the new year as the Nile glistens in the background with live entertainment that will set the tune of the New Year.

Before heading to any of the Four Season’s lavish holiday events, pamper yourself with one of the winter-inspired treatments at the Spa to leave you relaxed and glowing.
