All You Need to Know for a Ritzier Valentine’s Day

Sweep your loved ones off their feet this year with a ritzy evening full of romance, indulgence, wining, and dining over at the Nile Ritz-Carlton.

Staff Writer

The most romantic day of the year is almost upon us and, as always, the Nile Ritz-Carlton is upping their Valentine’s game with a selection of suitably romantic signature events. Whether it’s dinner with a view or a scintillating spa day with your significant other, the Ritz has you covered with a sterling selection of packages to suit all your romantic needs.

If wining and dining is your outing of choice, then step into the Ritz’s very own time machine and go back to the swinging 40s at Vivo, where a classic five course Italian meal courtesy of Chef Carmine and a gorgeous view of the Nile await. Step up to the dance floor and rock your zoot suits and fedoras while Frank Sinatra takes you both to the moon, all for the price of EGP 1,200.

Maybe you’re more into 80s soul? In that case, DJ Sam over at Nox has you covered with the some of the most romantic soul and Motown hits from the neon era - think Diana Ross, Marvin Gaye and the other romantics of yesteryear. In addition, scrumptious bar bites, hot cocktails and a super special surprise performance also come part of the package for EGP 1,100.

How about a lush, exclusive dinner on the Ritz’s private dining rooftop venue with view of the Nile, accentuated with the Cairo skyline? With only ten romantically candlelit tables, special access to the terrace and an expertly crafted five -course meal with a bottle of Moet and Chandon Champagne to the soft sounds of Malak El Husseiny as she serenades you with your favourite love songs, complete with a tastefully romantic photo by a professional photographer. Can you put a price on true romance? Not really, but for EGP 7,500, you can come pretty damn close.

What's Valentines Day without a heart-shaped box of scrumptious candy? You can treat your lovely significant other with a gorgeous bouquet of iconic red roses and a happy little box of chocolate delights filled with all your favourite treats; milk and dark chocolate, nutty surprises and your classic chocolate truffles. Nothing says I love you like a box of cute confectioneries. And if your sweetheart has a similarly sweet tooth, Sweet Boutique is there to sate your sweetest desires; with a beautiful selection of sinfully sweet delights to melt your darling's heart all made with love, raspberry chocolate pancakes, chocolate tarts, chocolate fondue and a variety of chocolaty heart shaped cakes and cupcakes, you and your boo will be in candy cloud nine.

Feeling like popping the question with an extravagant twist? Why not let your hearts soar high as you take to the skies with your loved one on a luxurious private helicopter ride around Cairo with a professional photographer to capture your sweetest moments. Followed by ritzy accommodation in a royal suite complete with a romantic rose petal turndown and a lush couples massage, authentic Italian dinner prepared by Chef Carmine at Vivo with champagne for two and special deals on diamonds from IRAM Jewelry. Diamonds are a girl’s best friend, after all.

Chocolate aside, Valentine's is also about pampering and love birds can take their pick of some of the Ritz’s finest tender, love and care, complete with champagne and strawberries to keep your mood afloat; go for a divine 'Heart to Heart' full body champagne massage for a full hour for EGP 4,000 per couple, or explore 'The Endless Love' body pampering experience with a 25-minute rose body scrum, followed by a 25-minute chocolate body wrap and a 50-minute champagne massage, all for EGP 3,000 per person. Each of the massages can also be individually requested, with the 25-minute rose body scrub setting you back EGP 1,000, the 25-minute chocolate body wrap for EGP 1,000 and the 50-minute champagne massage for EGP 2,000.

With all these sinfully romantic offerings and more, you owe it to your significant other to mosey on down to the Ritz-Carlton and treat yourselves to some quality loving.
