After the wedding papers have been signed, or vows officially exchanged, it is time for the liveliest part of the special day: the reception! Familiar with hosting parties, our staff at Royal Maxim Palace Kempinski can be completely trusted to deliver an amazing reception, whatever sort of event you have in mind.
Easily accessed from Cairo via the city ring road, the hotel is a great meeting point for different groups of family members and friends. In our elegant and beautifully designed indoor and outdoor venues, you, your partner, and your guests can enjoy the best food, drink and entertainment, leaving all of the details and organisation to us so you can focus all your efforts on what is important: the celebrations!
Beautiful outdoor receptions
An outdoor wedding is an excellent idea in sunny Cairo, where blue skies and pleasantly warm temperatures are common until the late evening.
Palace Courtyard celebrations
The Palace Courtyard truly has to be seen to be believed. Paved in stone and surrounded on all sides by the hotel’s classically inspired architecture, the Palace Courtyard contains palm trees, a pool and a number of terraces and grassy areas – the perfect backdrop for a wedding reception in the warmth of the day or the comfortable cool of the Egyptian evening.
Whichever area of the courtyard you choose to set your dinner, cocktail party, dancefloor or something entirely different, we are confident we will be able to accommodate your plans, embellishing them with the hotel’s outstanding facilities and services.
Dance and dine together at The Terrace
Surrounded by luscious greenery and featuring a beautiful background of the palace's façade, The Terrace is the ideal space for couples to celebrate their special day. More intimate than the Palace Courtyard, guests can enjoy food, drinks and dance the night away under clear skies and sparkling stars.
Luxurious indoor venues
There are a wide range of indoor venues to choose from at our hotel – each a great choice whether you want a more intimate gathering, or a grand event designed to impress a huge number of people.
A ballroom fit for royalty
The Excelsior Ballroom is the largest of its type in Egypt, and an amazing place to host a wedding reception. As well as featuring wonderful décor made for the highest standard of celebration, the size of the room – over 3,000 sq m in total – means that you can design and create any sort of wedding reception in the space. However grand or complex your ideas might be, our ballroom will be able to host them.
This venue can also be divided into three smaller spaces – perfect for separating different areas of the event, such as the dining area and dance floor.
Mid-sized celebration spaces
If the Excelsior room is a little too large for your wedding reception, we have several great spaces suited to parties between 16 and 90 guests. These include the Hope, Florentine, Shah, Orlov, Koh-I-Noor and Nizam Rooms. Furnished to the same exceptional standard as you will find throughout the hotel, and available to be decorated and set out in whichever way you would like, they are a perfect option if you are looking to host a wedding reception with your nearest and dearest.
Five-star service as standard
Whatever and wherever your wedding reception takes place, our expert staff and skilled approach to hosting weddings combine to provide a five-star level of service, including the following:
- a choice of menu – either buffet or sit-down – created by our accomplished chefs
- complimentary dance floors, banquet tables, covered chairs and staging, should you require them
- free use of the Bridal, Maxim or Palace Suite for the bridal couple, and discounted room rates for the wedding party
