Fairmont Nile City has always taken occasions seriously, be it Easter, New Year’s Eve or even Frank Sinatra’s birthday. True story. Christmas is no different and this year, the luxury hotel has embraced the festive spirit with the help of Deana Shaaban.
As one of the most sought-after young fashion designers in Egypt, Shaaban is no stranger to glitz and glam and lent a helping hand in Fairmont’s spectacular Christmas decorations, which feature a mind-boggling 7,000 ornaments including a range of homemade ornaments inspired by the world of fashion.
But if there was every any doubt about how much the folk at Fairmont love Christmas, the hotel’s annual Christmas tree lighting event took place on December 5th, with eggnog, Glühwein and other Christmas treats served to the backdrop of Ahmed Harfoush belting out some seasonal classics, with the likes of social media influencer and all-round cheeky-monkey, Mohamed Mekawy, fashion model, Tara Emad, and entrepreneur and general woman of the world, Nayrouz Abouzeid, among others. In addition, Fairmont Nile City General Manager, Frank Naboulsi, was the man charged with taking on the role of Santa Claus and he did so with aplomb, arriving with elves and presents in tow.
The Christmas cheer is set to continue from the 24th, though, with Onyx Lounge hosting a special Christmas Eve night with live music and some special cocktails, before Ahmed Harfoush returns at Saigon Restaurant & Lounge’s Eat, Drink, and Be Merry Christmas Day event.
