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.

I returned to Nubian Island for a few relaxing days at the beginning of April and wasnt disappointed! Once again the weather was glorious and the hotel still serves great food with friendly staff. Love the animation team! Kate from England is still my favourite by far, she is brilliant with all guests whatever language they speak and is always smiling! Also thanks to Chief Willi who runs the team and his other staff inclduing new boy Cookie! Hope to be back soonMore

More for families than Couples

My wife and I have just returned from a 1 week stay in the Nubian Island Hotel. We had chosen this hotel as it had excellent reviews on Trip Advisor. This was our second time to Egypt having stayed last year at the Premier Le Reeve outside of Hurgarda. We planned our stay to avoid the Easter weeks thinking that there would not be many children but we did not factor in the Russian children’s holidays and found ourselves really in the minority. The Russians certainly like to party hard and can be quite rude. We had requested a bungalow by the quiet pool which was well situated but needed some updating. It had no tea or coffee facilities and even though we asked for them they did not appear. The cleanliness of the hotel was excellent, however the food was generally poor and the main restaurant was at times chaotic. My wife and I both fell victims to the dreaded tummy bug but this seems to be common in Egypt so I would not blame the hotels hygiene for this. One issue we did have was the hotels failure to remind the guests about their dress code in the restaurants. Quite often guests would dine in the evening in swim shorts and vests that we had seen then in round the pool during the day. When I asked the customer relations about this they said the hotel has let it slip because the Russian guest became angry when challenged. It’s either a rule or its not! Despite the friendliness of the staff, especially George on the pool bar and Cookie and Kate from the hard working Animation Team, we would not visit this hotel again. I personally believe the hotel is better suited to families more than couples as it’s was really difficult to find anywhere within the hotel to get away and just relax. The main lounge bar could be full of children of an evening dangerously running round and even the quiet pool area was very noisy. Something else British guests should be aware of is that the pools have attendants but not lifeguards. All the signs make this clear but the number of times we saw young children unsupervised and out of their depth was frightening. Anyway, lesson learnt, back to Adults Only and somewhere other than Egypt.More

Amazing stay at Nubian Island

We recently came back from Nubian Island. We had an amazing, relaxing stay for 1 week. The location was brilliant, the hotel was beautiful, the rooms were spacious and clean. The staff were extremely friendly. The animation team were fun to be around (especially Kate). We will definitely be going back. The hotel is located in an ideal location, everything is close by. The hotel has two spacious pools and the beach is lovely with beautiful views. The spa in the hotel was amazing and the staff were so friendly and helpful. I had the Cleopatra package which I would definitely recommend. The food was excellent in all the restaurants. I definitely recommend the Italian restaurant, the service was fabulous. The room cleaners were so good. Our room was always cleaned to perfection. Would definitely recommend Nubian Island Hotel to anyone visiting Sharm el sheikh. I would like to thank all the staff and animation team at Nubian Island Hotel. We had a wonderful time.More
