It’s the season of heading to the beach to enjoy the sun, sea, and the cool summer breeze. However, a tight schedule can ruin any chance of having your summer plans fulfilled. If you’re too busy to take a break and head out of town, don’t fret, for Downtown’s luxury hotel The Nile Ritz-Carlton is bringing you those much-needed summer vibes to the heart of Cairo.
Enjoy a mini getaway at The Nile Ritz-Carlton’s signature cabanas and Olympic-size pool, which, situated amid a jungle of palm trees, boast a magnificent view of Cairo and its famous landmark, Cairo Tower. Whether it’s a family day by the pool or a friends’ day out, the hotel has something for everyone.
As you are lying in the sun, sipping on a refreshing drink, the little ones will be having the time of their lives at the Kids’ Cabana, where a host of games and activities are waiting. Speaking of drinks, the hotel’s poolside restaurant, Aqua, welcomes summer with a special beer offer, in which you get a free bottle of beer for every three bottles bought.
The beer will perfectly pair with a mouthwatering hotdog sandwich from Aqua, which happens to celebrate the World’s National Hotdog Day during the whole month of July. The restaurant also offers various snacks, including sandwiches, salads, as well as an array of drinks.
When the night falls and the kids go to bed, the poolside area will be all yours; turning into an intimate space where you can enjoy a cocktail or a snack over a friendly chat while enjoying lounge music played by the hotel’s resident DJ.
You can also de-stress at the hotel’s spa, which offers a round of packages called Summer Bliss. Packages boast a variety of hydrating treatments using fresh strawberries and mangoes, including full-body exfoliation sessions, and massages.
Also, the spa introduces a special aloe vera gel treatment, which is perfect for cooling off your body after a long day in the sun, as well as the unique milk foot bath, which you can enjoy in the spa’s jasmine scented, tranquil candlelit setting.
You can take it up another notch, and enjoy all that we’ve mentioned for a whole year, by getting yourself a membership at the hotel’s spa for 18000 LE per person. The membership gives you a 24/7 access to all spa and gym facilities, as well as the outdoor pool, plus complimentary dinner for two at any of the hotel’s culinary outlets, two complimentary personal training sessions per member, complimentary valet parking, and six guest invitations.
The membership also comes with a host of discounts on various services; 25% savings on pool cabanas, spa treatments, fitness centre; 20% savings on laundry services and dry cleaning; 15% savings on food and beverages; 50% savings on a 3-night stay at the hotel. You can also freeze your membership for two months.
See? It’s not really that bad to spend the summer within the city limits after all.
