Dubai, U.A.E.

Four Seasons hotels and resorts across Europe, Middle East and Africa are coming up with all sorts of enticing offers to encourage guests to hope on over to the region this Easter. From underwater Easter egg hunts in Dubai, to chocolate animal-making in Milan, extraordinary Easter eggs in Paris and much more, there are plenty of reasons for families to head to their favourite Four Seasons to celebrate this holiday together.

Four Seasons Hotel Cairo at The First Residence

Four Seasons Hotel Cairo at The First Residence has a double celebration for Easter and Sham El Nessim this year to mark the beginning of the spring season, one of the best times of year to visit this exciting city. Sham El Nessim translates as “smelling the breeze,” and is a national holiday celebration in Egypt falling on the Monday following Coptic Easter and dating back to the time of the Pharaohs. Cairo’s favourite poolside dining space Aura presents some of the best local Egyptian favourites on Monday, April 9, 2018 to celebrate the festivities including fermented grey mullet, salted sardines and smoked herring, accompanied by a big plate loaded with fresh greens such as chives, arugula, lettuce, green onions, cucumbers, and lots of lime and bread to enjoy with these typical seasonal fish dishes. And what’s a family feast without a sweet ending? The Hotel also has a wide selection of Easter goodies and Sham El Nessim-inspired desserts from the Tea Lounge and La Gourmandise that are guaranteed to add delicious moments to family spring celebrations. Heading to Cairo over the Easter? The Hotel is offering up to 30 percent savings on suite accomodations (terms and conditions apply).

Four Seasons Hotel Dubai International Financial Centre

Throughout Easter week, from March 25 to 31, 2018, Four Seasons Hotel Dubai International Financial Centre invites guests to enjoy the team’s slightly different take on the Easter egg with Penrose Lounge’s mini chocolate piñatas. Equipped with a chocolate baton, guests can take a whack at the chocolate confection, which is filled with mini churros, fresh fruit and berries, accompanied by raspberry and chocolate sauces, and house-made whipped cream. Perfect for those with a sweet tooth this Easter, and priced at AED 150 at Penrose Lounge.

Four Seasons Resort Dubai at Jumeirah Beach

Four Seasons Resort Dubai at Jumeirah Beach invites guests to dive deep for chocolate this Easter with an underwater Easter egg hunt in the Resort’s active pool. Tiny aquanauts will be able to make a splash as they hunt for floating eggs on the surface of the water, and more grown-up deep-sea divers will be able to plunge into the depths of the pool in search of the more challenging “sinkers.” And with the weather in Dubai being perfect at this time of year, Mum and Dad will be able to cheer in comfort from the poolside as their little ones make a big splash. The underwater Easter egg hunt is available from March 25 to 31, 2018, and is complimentary for Hotel guests.

Four Seasons Hotel Ritz Lisbon

Guests joining the new series of Ritz Masterclasses at Four Seasons Hotel Ritz Lisbon should take note of a special class taking place on Saturday, March 31, 2018 if they have a sweet tooth. The Masterclasses, held immediately after Saturday Brunch, give brunch guests a unique opportunity to pick up some insider kitchen know-how from the Hotel’s dynamic team. Guests enjoying brunch on Easter Saturday will be able to join Pastry Chef Fabian Nguyen and Sous Chef Diogo Lopes to learn how to create and decorate chocolate eggs just in time for Easter Sunday. No doubt those new-found skills will be a hit for future Easters to come. The Masterclass is limited to 20 people reservations should be made in advance directly with the Hotel by calling +351 21 381 1400.

Four Seasons Hotel Megève

Celebrating its first Easter since opening, Four Seasons Hotel Megève is inviting guests to come and enjoy a spring mountain break in the snowy Alps.  Activities will include an Easter egg hunt on Easter Sunday for young Alpine explorers to discover tasty chocolate Easter treats, and a special Easter menu at Michelin two-star restaurant Le 1920 featuring traditional French Easter dishes. And budding young farmers will be able to spend time at the special Four Seasons Hotel Megève mini-farm that will be popping up for Easter, meeting cute little real-life Easter bunnies and chicks.

Four Seasons Hotel Milano

Easter in Italy’s fashion capital is sure to be a stylish affair, and this year’s Easter offerings at Four Seasons Hotel Milano are no exception. Young guests at the Hotel will get a chance to exercise their creativity as they are invited to design animals made of chocolate with Pastry Chef Daniele Bonzi, creator of the Hotel’s famous Chocolate Room. This kid-friendly chocolate masterclass, in collaboration with the famous chocolate-maker Valrhona, will start in the pastry lab, where aspiring young pastry chefs will learn how chocolate is transformed into art using moulds and secret tips from the chefs. After the completion of this first stage, children will be able to personalise their creation using colourful edible paints and chocolate ganache to give life to their gorillas, rhinoceros, frogs, tigers or pandas. All chocolate animals will be displayed during the traditional Easter Brunch hosted in the open kitchen on Sunday, April 1, 2018, featuring a selection of Italian delights prepared by Restaurant Chef Marco Veneruso and his team.  The winning work of chocolate art will become part of the Chocolate Room décor.

Four Seasons Hotel George V, Paris

Guests at Four Seasons Hotel George V, Paris this Easter should prepare to be astonished as Executive Pastry Chef Maxime Frédéric reveals a garden in full bloom for guests to enjoy – with their eyes and their taste buds. Chef Maxime and his talented team have put their green thumbs to good use this Easter to create a collection of four extraordinary Easter eggs embracing the different seasons. Standing at 60 centimetres (24 inches) high, each egg represents a different season, with each vegetable, petal and snowflake detail sculpted, cut, modelled and moulded by hand. The base of these eggs will form a colourful garden full of sweet treats that guests will be able to enjoy as part of the not-to-be-missed Easter Tea Time, available during the Easter weekend.

Four Seasons Hotel Prague

Easter heralds the arrival of spring in Prague, and Easter festivities will be arriving at CottoCrudo restaurant at Four Seasons Hotel Prague on Sunday, April 1, 2018. From 11:00 am to 3:00 pm, CottoCrudo will host its perennially popular Easter brunch, this year featuring a folklore program based on deep-rooted Czech traditions. Guests will be able to listen to folk singers Muzička and watch skilled dancers from the Rosénka group, while trying to decorate their own Easter egg as they enjoy the culture of the countryside being brought to the city. The afternoon will be topped off with Easter-themed activities for children. And for those who would like to extend the fun, the Hotel is offering a special Stay Longer – Third Night Free package available over Easter weekend.
