Ah, Mother’s Day is all but upon us and so is that slow-burning anxiety we come to feel as we endure sleepless nights pondering how to repay the woman, nay queen that birthed you for the years she spent raising you, clothing you and feeding you.
Never ones to miss out on occasion, though, Fairmont Nile City is making life a little easier with the #TakeMyMumToFairmontNC competition; all you have to do is post an old photo of you and your mama to Facebook, Instagram or Twitter using the hashtag and tagging Fairmont Nile City and you can win a complimentary dinner for your queen of the castle when you make a reservation for more than two people.
If you don’t win, boo-hoo, get over and spend a little, you cheapskate – seriously, you’ll only need to spend a ‘little’ for a lot with the hotel’s dining and spa packages.
Nothing says, ‘no mum, of course you don’t look old’ like a spa package named Youthful Pioneer Experience, which FNC is offering a whopping 45% discount on this Mother’s Day. The experience will see the Willow Stream Spa staff help her melt into an abyss of luxury and pampering, starting with a back massage and an anti-aging facial treatment, before moving on to a hair and nail session at the Fairmont’s Salon. The cheery on top of this ice cream Sunday of a package is a special gift from the spa’s shop.
The day doesn’t have to be over there; both Saigon Restaurant & Lounge and Napa Grill are hosting special three-course dinners for 280LE per person.
In conclusion, if your mother doesn’t enjoy Monday 21st of March 2016, you only have your self to blame.
For more information and reservations, call 02 2461 9494. And don’t forget to buy flowers; it might be a cliché, but who doesn’t like flowers?
