Myself and my fiance had called ahead to the concierge at the hotel and had a meet and assist set up so that when we landed in Cairo we were greeted in the airport by a man named Ahmed, he took our passports and the money for the visa and completed the process for us so we just had to meet him on the other side of customs and not have to deal with any of the paperwork. He also picked up our bags at the carousel and we did not have to touch a thing. We were then taken to the hotel in a gorgeous Benz and greeted by the awaiting staff.
Our room was on the 15th floor with an amazing veiw of the nile which is esspecially gorgeous at night when the boats that the employees told us are called flookas are lit up.
My fiance and I, who are both very athletic my fiance being a fitness instructor, spent our mornings at the gym facilities which is bigger then any hotel gym ive ever seen including the seperate studio where i did yoga and pilates alone and also took in a very energized arobics class.
We set up a tour of the pyramids with Ahmed at the concierge desk who is a very happy and helpful young man, it started fairly early, but avoided most of the heat and had a very personable tourguide that was very knowledgeable on the area, probably the highlight of our time in Egypt!
We had our romantic anniversary dinner of the day we met at the Sygon restraunt with beautiful asian cuisine, i must say it had some of the nicest decor i have ever seen including an expensive purple crystal chandelier!
Overall our stay at the Fairmont was one of the most amazing vacation experiences we have ever had and have reccomended it to everyone of our friends and even persuaded some fellow candians that we met in the downstairs mall to switch hotels and we saw them in the morning and they couldnt have been happier they had. We will continue to reccommend this hotel to everyone we meet!
