Ramadan at The Ritz: The Nile Ritz-Carlton Brings Back Wust El Balad Kheima & More

While many complain about the lack of ‘things to do’ around the city during Ramadan, one could argue that, actually, it’s the most colorful and bustling time of the year – none more so than at The Nile Ritz-Carlton.

The Downtown Cairo hotel has never been one to hold back when it comes to occasion and what bigger occasion than the Holy Month?

Last year, The Nile Ritz-Carlton debuted its tent, Wust El Balad, which took all the best traditions of Ramadan and added its own modern spin – and it’s back again this year, too, offering a stylish and luxurious way to wind down during sohour with top quality shisha, live entertainment and TV screens (so you don’t miss a beat of this year’s mosalsalat) all wrapped up in lively atmosphere.

But that’s not all for The Nile Ritz-Carlton this Ramadan; award-winning restaurant, Culina, is famous for its lavish buffets and will this year be laying out the most hearty and delicious of spreads for a unique fetar experience through interactive cooking and a little bit of molecular gastronomy to boot.

If you’re looking for a fancy family fete, however, then look no further than the hotel’s Al Qahira and Alf Leila Wa Leila ballrooms, where The Nile Ritz-Carlton is offering set sohour menus and fetar buffets. The ballrooms are truly unique, capturing everything you’d expect from a five-star hotel, but with a distinctly Oriental feel – the fountain, and chandeliers upholstered walls are quite something. Meanwhile, the cherry on-top is Lobby Lounge, which will be serving up some top-notch gourmet Oriental and international delicacies 

And so there you have it – a bunch of very different options, but all leading to a fantastic Ramadan experience.
