Because She’s Worth it

She taught you how to tie your shoes. She made bumps and bruises stop hurting with a single kiss. She makes molokheya better than anyone else in the world. All around, your mum is pretty incredible, and loves you better than anyone else in the world.

Now it’s time to show her that her hard work hasn’t gone unnoticed and treat her to a Mother’s Day worthy of a queen. And there’s no better place to treat her like royalty than at Sofitel Cairo El Gezirah.


Sofitel Cairo El Gezirah loves their holidays and typically goes all out to make special occasions extra festive (you may remember their fabulous Valentine’s packages). But the only thing Sofitel loves more than holidays is mothers, so when mums and holidays combine, they really pull out all the stops. This Mother’s Day, make sure you treat your mother as well as she’s always treated you and reserve for one of these amazing offers.

Give your mother a break from the kitchen and head over to Sofitel’s 24-hour deluxe buffet restaurant Sud, where you and she can fill both your plates to your hearts’ content with some of the finest international fare in town for only 195LE ++ per person.

Buddha-Bar is all about sharing, so it only makes sense that this Pan-Asian paradise is serving up a special dinner for the whole family. For 280LE ++ per person, you can indulge in several sharable courses of some highly creative cuisine. But the best part is that the fourth family member eats for free!

If lunch in the sun is more your style, Sofitel’s famous Egyptian grill, El Kebabgy, may be more your style. Bring your mum for a feast of her favourite foods (but don’t forget to stroke her ego and ensure her that her cooking is still superior) and take 10% off the check. The same offer applies at Sud. To redeem this offer though, you have to visit Sofitel Cairo El Gezirah’s Facebook page and print off the downloadable voucher to present during your meal.

Treat your mother to a whole weekend of luxury and give her a night away from home. She’ll love a luxurious night in one of the hotel’s Nile-view superior rooms. When she checks in, the hotel will treat her to a special welcome drink to ease her into her evening of bliss. Indulge in a delicious dinner for two at Sud, before enjoying a peaceful night’s sleep next to the greatest views in town, and waking up to a bountiful brunch. The entire package for two is on offer for only 1600LE and is available for the entire Mother’s Day weekend, from the 21st to the 24th.

The best part about Sofitel’s Mother’s Day offers is that they are actually giving away one fabulous package for free through a Facebook contest. Just send a photo of you and your mother (or you and your children if you want to take matters into your own hands) to sofitelcairoegcompetition@gmail.comand the generous people at Sofitel will upload the photo into a special album. ‘Like’ the Sofitel Cairo El Gezirah page and your photo, and encourage your friends and family to do the same. On the 19th, the photo with the most ‘likes’ will be announced the winner for an overnight in the luxury of the hotel. In their words, not ours, ‘Life is Magnifique in Cairo!’
