“Would you like to go here? Would you like to go there? Maybe we could go here. Should we drive or fly? No? Where do you want go then? It’s Eid!”

And that’s how much of a headache families in Cairo have to go through when making their Eid plans. Every year, it’s the same old running and meandering around which seaside resort to go to, whether it’s the North Coast, Sokhna, Hurghada, or Sharm. If only Cairo was on the sea, we wouldn’t have to plan or pack our bags or make any travel arrangements… wait… a resort already exists here? What is this nonsense?!

We will all be delighted to hear that the utterly fabulous Nile Ritz-Carlton is bringing the Eid spirit right to our doorstep this year, and whether it’s just the two of you, or if you’re bringing along those "adorable" kids of yours, they’ve made all the arrangements you could possibly wish for. From seafood to burgers and grilled meat, from swimming pool cabanas to children’s corner, the Ritz has everything covered to ensure you have a relaxing Eid break.

At Culina, a delicious brunch buffet will be held on the 2nd of September, where all the deliciousness will be prepared right in front of you by the chefs. We all know the meat extravaganza that Eid Al Adha becomes, but if you’re looking for something a little light on the tummy, some exquisite seafood will be on offer. A live jazz band will be playing some soothing tunes throughout the afternoon and children will be invited to play games in a designated kids’ corner.

You should definitely try one of the luxurious pool cabanas that sit right on the Ritz’s incredible outdoor pool. Not too far away, at the Patio Pool Bar and Grill, you can help yourself to the most heavenly couple ever created: burgers and beer. Make a choice on one of the several enticing burgers on offer, then wash it all down with a cool Heineken.

At some point, you and your significant other are certainly going to want some quality time together, but the kids need taking care of. What kind of luxury hotel doesn’t take care of all of its esteemed guests? Including the minors? Not the Nile Ritz-Carlton, that’s for sure. They’ve made an entire children’s programme for the Eid holiday. Your little ones will enjoy arts and crafts, the cinema, and many other exciting activities all day while you relax by the pool, and when it’s finally time for you and your loved one to have that romantic late night dinner, they’ll be tired out and fast asleep before 10 PM, guaranteed!
