    The most wonderful time of the year is upon us, and although 2020 was not particularly a walk in the park, Four Seasons Hotel Cairo at Nile Plaza is ending it on a high note. Rest assured that you and your loved ones will be able to experience the joy of Christmas, then countdown to – a hopefully brighter – new year within the safe spaces of Four Seasons. Here is your guide to this year’s Christmas and New Year’s Eve festivities…

    Santa’s Visit

    Let’s start with Santa! We know you would all like to have a word with him, but let the children make their wishes on the 24th and the 25th of December during his annual visit at the hotel’s lobby. We guess you can check with Santa if he can take special requests after the kids are done!

    Italy’s Bullona

    You can dig into an Italian dinner at Bullona restaurant, made up of a five-course set menu, on Christmas Eve for 1750+++ LE. The dinner is served from 7:00 PM to 12:00 AM, and DJ Ben will keep the spirits upbeat with a special set.

    As for New Year’s, you can sit down with your favourite people and indulge in a five-course set menu for 1950+++ LE served from 7:00 PM to 10:00 PM. But if you think you might be a little hungrier, then you can opt for the six-course set menu served from 10:30 PM to 1:00 AM (and you’ll get to catch the countdown… Pucker up!) for 2450+++ LE. DJ Ben will also be behind the decks, dropping one mix after another to the countdown and beyond.

    To put some hype into the holidays, international DJ Ben takes the stage from the 24th of December to the 2nd of January, and his lively beats are bound to carry everyone into the late-night celebrations all week long.

    China’s Eight

    If you turn the number eight horizontally, it’s becomes the sign for infinity, and you can channel those eternal, everlasting moments with the people you love most at 8 restaurant. The holiday experience features a Christmas Eve dinner (five-course set menu) for 1600+++ LE served from 7:00 PM to 12:00 AM, along with two options for New Year’s Eve dinners. The first sitting is from 7:00 PM to 9:30 PM and features a five-course set menu for 1750+++ LE, while the second seating lasts from 10:00 to 1:00 AM and features a six-course set menu for 1950 +++ LE.

    Orient’s Zitouni

    For a Christmas day lunch that feels just like home, you can head to Zitouni restaurant for roast turkey, along with a hearty selection of authentic Egyptian delicacies that’s not just a feast for your bellies, but also your eyes. Zitouni’s Christmas day starts at 12:30 PM and ends at 5:30 PM and features a set menu for 865+++ LE. As for New Year’s Eve, the set menu is served from 7:00 PM till 12:00 AM for 1450+++ LE with live DJ tunes.

    Beymen Café

    Christmas is never the same without an endless supply of holiday-themed treats! Beymen café will serve you all that your heart desires from traditional panettone, stollen cake, and speculoos cookies, prepared by Chef Yehia Ahmed and his culinary team, every day from the 20th to the 31st of December.

    La Galerie

    We bet Willy Wonka would be jealous of La Galerie’s chocolate desserts (buffet includes brownies and cheesecakes) that will surely satisfy your sweet tooth, while the live pianist relaxes your thoughts with classic melodies.

    New Year’s Eve chocolate buffet lasts from 7:00 PM till 1:00 AM for 750+++ LE, and the pianist will enchant you with their performance from 8:00 PM till 1:00 AM.

    Accommodation Rates

    After you’re done with the day, you don’t have to drive back home – just head upstairs to your room! Rates start from 2,990++ LE, including breakfast for two, and are available throughout December.
