Nubian Island  


This hotel is designed like a Nubian village. Think pink and terracotta buildings linked by winding pathways, wooden bridges and cacti gardens. The gardens merge into a beach, which slopes into the Red Sea in Nabq Bay. The waters are shallow for a long way out, so you can wade in to watch fish swim around the reef. And if you want to go swimming or snorkelling, there’s a long jetty jutting out to the deeper waters.

Elsewhere, the pool scene is nicely thought out. There are two large numbers, each with a different vibe. Head to the one near the lobby to laze the day away in peace and quiet. At the second, meanwhile, there’s a livelier feel with a swim-up bar and a family-friendly vibe. That said, both pools come with their own children’s sections, so you can still choose between quiet and upbeat if you have kids in tow.

In terms of accommodation, rooms are tastefully decorated with cream walls, light-wood furniture and plum-and-cream soft-furnishings. Satellite TVs and mini-fridges are supplied as standard, and each room connects to a terrace or balcony. If prviacy is really important, meanwhile, you can plump for one of the bungalows spread around the grounds.

The dining scene deserves a mention, too. As well as a buffet eatery, you’ve got a gourmet fish restaurant, an Italian trattoria and a pub-style bar.

From the very start of the holiday the staff couldn't do enough to help us. They're all so friendly! The animation team are great and so lively, I think they're all amazing at what they do, thank you Cookie, Kate, Liza, Daniel, Stass, Tony and Barbara! (And also Anthony although he is no longer there!). We noticed that each member of staff takes a great amount of pride in the hotel which is wonderful to see, and rightly so as it is beautiful. We felt so welcome and comfortable throughout our two week stay at the hotel. The room was perfect, good size and the cleaner did an excellent job everyday. Maged at the beach bar was great, he brought us drinks often and was very friendly. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the hotel with the very hot weather and we are already considering going back next year! :)More

What a fantastic 2 week break at the Nubian Island...nothing too much effort for the great staff. Food excellent, rooms spacious and cleaned daily. Both pools were great but we stayed mainly near the pool by the beach and were entertained by a great Animation Team led by Willi and his great assistant Tony who work effortlessly to provide us with fun and games. Kate and Cookie also a credit to the Team being from England but all the others were great too. Special thanks to Maged and Mahmood for the constant top up of drinks and for the towels provided to us daily. Nothing can be faulted with the Hotel or it's facilities at all, all inclusive allowed us to eat way too much and the variety was brilliant. Slight downside was the number of Russians holidaying there but that is due to the British shying away from Egypt due to troubles in 2011. Egypt offers everything needed in a holiday, the temp on Sunday was 102F!! We travelled to Cairo to see the Pyramids and were faced with a high presence of Army and Police in the area of the Museum behind the Government buildings but never once did we feel unsafe or bothered by it. Sharm El Sheikh is a 10 hour drive away from Cairo and therefore, there is no need to shy away from the region because of any fears. So, if you are planning a relaxing, hot holiday where you are treated like Royalty then book this Hotel for your stay. Thank you Mr George for a great have a lovely hotel and staff you shoule be proud of ...see you next year!!!More

Absolutely Fantastic!

We have just returned from an amazing holiday at the hotel and we can't find even one negative thing to say. The staff at the hotel just cannot do enough for you and make you feel so welcome, especially Maged and Mahmood at the pool who made our stay really special and looked after us so well. The food is fantastic with plenty of variety and themed nights. The hotel is fabulously maintained with absolutely beautiful gardens to wander through on your way to the pool and beach. The animation team were great fun and put on lots of shows and activities for all ages. Just off the hotel jetty is some of the most beautiful coral and the sea is shallow enough in places for kids to go out exploring. We just loved this hotel and would recommend it to anyone, we can't wait to have a chance to go back. More

Holly W,


Well I had been 'all inclusive' before but this was the best I had ever had! From day 1, we found the staff to be very, very helpful, the attention to detail was 1st class, the offers of help when we asked any questions or wanted to know where anything was, were excellent and beyond our expectations. If we asked where an item of food was, they would show us and if it wasn't available, the staff said they would try to get it the following day, and did. We understood that certain foods were not available in Egypt and also they have rules, like we do in England, so we adapted to their way of life, like one should in a foreign country. We also found every member of staff is there to assist you, help you and do all they can for you. It was my birthday 2 days after we arrived, and the assistant manager, who was running the hotel while the manager was away, came and spoke to my partner and I, and invited us to the Italian restaurant, part of the hotel, and we had a private meal of 7 courses plus drinks, and more if we could of eat any more, and Happy Birthday, sung by some of the staff :D It was our best holiday ever and we are already looking at re-booking it for 2015.
