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.

We've just returned from Nubian Island, after 2 weeks holiday there. The check in at reception was very good and we were in our room within 10 minutes. The room was excellent. clean sheets and towels changed daily, the down side was the mattress and pillows were like concrete and we found it hard to sleep. We sunbathed around the quiet pool, there were always plenty of sunbeds available, there is a pool bar in the centre of the pool and George who runs the bar is brilliant. The food in the restaurant was good. plenty of choice, but I got fed up of it and hardly ate for the last 5 days, I told Natasha the P.R. and she said what sort of thing would you like so I said something plain and simple like fried egg and chips she came back within minutes and said find a restaurant worker in a pink shirt and tell him what you want, which I did and ended up with lovely fried eggs chips and bread and butter. The downside to the hotel for us was due to breaking my leg this summer I found it hard to move around the hotel , the bar on a night was upstairs and there were no lifts and on the staircase the handrail did not run the full length of the stairs, we sat outside relying on waiters to fetch our drinks, which were very efficient until 22.15 when they seemed to forget you existed,. We spoke to lots of people who were all in the same mind as us, the hotel needs an outside bar it gives an easy outgoing friendly atmosphere and would be well placed just outside the sliding doors. We cannot comment on the Italian restaurant or the beach due to the distance and steps to the beach making it impossible for us. The entertainment staff are very good especially Zino a great guy. All in all a good hotel, excellent staff just get some softer pillow and mattresses and an outside bar and you'd have an excellent hotelMore

Me and my partner have just returned from a holiday at Nubian Island. We were a little sceptical about the stay after reading a couple of the reviews but that was nothing to worry about. The food was good and although I am a fussy eater I always managed to find something to eat. The entertainment was good and Zino always made time to speak to us. As did Natasha from guest relations. They always made sure that we were happy with our room and service everyday. George at the pool bar was brilliant and always remembered our drinks and had a chat with us. All in all we had a fantastic holiday which was made by the friendliness of the staff. We would deffo come back again!More

We've read the other travellers comments and have to concur with all of them. The hotel is lovely, the rooms are fine (worth asking for softer pillows tho'), the food was good - we even had a chicken curry made specially for us!!!; the pool and grounds of the complex are spotlessly clean, the staff are really friendly and work very hard. The 'mozzies' were a nuisance, but the hotel did its best to eradicate them each evening. The Entertainment crew were good and also worked very hard - we loved having Kate coming for a daily chat around the pool (she's a sweetie).] Overall the hotel deserves all the praise it's been given. We've been to Sharm quite a few times and the Nubian Island is by far the best hotel we've stayed at! Thanks to everyone concerned at the hotel.More

Give me sunshine !!!!!
We really enjoyed our stay here (Room 567). The management & staff were very good and eager to please. The choice of food was excellent especially the omelettes in the mornings and pancakes at dinner "nom". The pools were not overly busy and there were always sun beds available, the towel guys were great. The beach was kept spotless and the jetty was well supervised for safety and the ecology, the abundance of fish and coral was truly marvellous. There are strong currents along the reef front, fins are best used if you intend to do snorkelling and swim shoes for the beach. There was always a smile from the bar staff. The bars had nice "hot" coffee better than Costa's and good cocktails although I'm not sure about the alcohol content but not a bad thing ;). Our room was perfect and kept very clean, yes the bed was hard but we found it ok. There were people having awful problems with mosquito bites. We wore long trousers after dark, we stayed inside the hotel in the evenings as well. We also kept the nets closed on the balcony and had no issues with mosquitoes.(Jungle Formula Spray) The animation team were fun p - p- pp - p lol. We enjoyed the shows. They are hard working guys. We did the yellow submarine trip booked from Ibrahim at the hotel and it was very good if you are not a snorkeler. "Sinai by Star Light" with Gino (Thomsons) this was also good, we had a camel ride a Bedouin meal and shisha pipe follow by cloudy star gazing not there fault. We also did "That Friday night Feeling" which I think we were a wee bit too old for but we still had fun. Soho Square was ok but you could buy the same stuff at the hotel at a better price. I also had booked diving online with Ocean College which was great. The shop staff in the hotel were very nice and always up for a bit of banter, all genuine fakes but they tell you that. We really liked our holiday, great weather, great hotel. Can't wait to return to Sharm and the Red Sea. Cheers Nubian Island for a very enjoyable stay, we would definitely come back. Scottish money is not accepted in Sharm & buy a Visa at the Airport £15ish if you intend to go to Ras Mohammed National Park or further.More
excellent hotel lovely staff
we travelled to the nubian island 18-26 NOv 2013. we were a little unsure as our previous stay in Taba wasnt very good. However this hotel is excellent. Very peacefull and relaxing, if you can stop the spa people contantly baggering you to buy spa treatments at the poolside !, (but this is normal in all inclusive, so just be nice and firm.) The food in the buffet restaurant wasnt that good but we found something every night, I feel it was a bit like a service station cafe, infact we re named it 'the cafe !'. The italian restaurant was very good, downside was ordering your food at lunchtime for the evening, but overall very good. The animation team were brillo,very friendly ..shout out to Zino, Tony, and lovely little kate always a pleasure to see them. !!! The room was cleaned everyday by mohammed, we had new towels and sheets everday, he worked very hard. Downside to this holiday was the mozzies!! they seemed to be a plague of them, however the hotel sprayed every night in an effort to sort the problem. There was just a little too many russians for our liking 90% russians 10% english! , although they were not a direct problem, thier rudness to the staff was uncomfortable....Would we go again ?? er yes planning to go in January!!More
