The stand-outs here are the 2 lagoon-style pools, although a private beach puts up fierce competition.
This hotel and bungalow complex is designed like a Nubian village – think pink and terracotta buildings linked by winding pathways, wooden bridges and cacti gardens. Plus there are 2 lagoon pools.
The hotel has a private beach with a diving centre and a jetty for coral watching. As for food, there’s an international buffet, plus an Italian and a seafood joint. Central Sharm El Sheikh is about a 20-minute drive away.
Buffet meals and snacks.
Local alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks, by the glass - time restrictions may apply.
Ultra All Inclusive is available as an upgrade. It includes, in addition to the regular All Inclusive package, 24-hour drinks, International alcoholic brands, minibar refilled daily, VIP Lounge with Continental breakfast, lunch and dinner, dining in all à la carte restaurants, room service - 1 sandwich order per day, two 30-minute massages per stay, hair session twice a stay, use of sauna, steam bath and whirlpool, private beach area, bottle of wine and fruit basket in the room on arrival. To add this package, please call us after you have completed your booking.
Snacks at set times.
With sunbeds, parasols, whirlpool bath and 2 pool bars. One pool is near the lobby to laze the day away in peace and quiet. At the second, there’s a livelier feel with a swim-up bar and a family-friendly vibe. One of the pools has a children's section.
Stayed here for a week in October and had a fantastic time. The staff are all brilliant and really make the difference, couldn't be more helpful. The food is excellent with great variety, couldn't fault it. Heard others complaining about the Russians being rude & pushing in on queues, never had one problem with this and in fact made a few Russian friends drinking vodka cocktails in the hotel bars. Have been to Sharm before but will definitely be booking Nubian Island for next year! Thanks for a great holiday.More
A perfect relaxing holiday!
Just returned on 17th October after a 2 week holiday at this wonderful hotel! This was our first time to Sharm, and definitely not our last. After staying here at Nubian Island, we wouldn't take the chance of staying anywhere else as we had such a wonderful holiday! The staff are all so polite... You hardly have to lift a finger! George in the dome bar was excellent... Friendly and polite, and keeping your drinks refilled! Alaa at the Island pool (quiet pool) was ever so helpful and polite. He made sure we had the same place at the pool everyday. Essam at the pool bar makes a wicked special cocktail ð and when the bar is quiet comes around the pool taking drinks orders! The food is second to none... Absolutely fantastic choice and presentation! A credit to their chefs!! The Italian restaurant was nice, good food and service, and very romantic ð. Just make sure you book early enough on the day, or all places quickly taken!
Make sure you take snorkels as the jetty is fantastic for snorkelling! They are expensive to buy there so take your own!
The room was lovely with the biggest bed I've ever seen, and was made up every day with fresh towels and bedding. The bed is a little on the firm side, but a mattress topper sorted that out.
We went away looking for a relaxing holiday to just chill and unwind, and that's exactly what we had!!
Beware of the Mosquitos as they eat you alive!!! Uk repellent didn't work and I ended up having a jab of antihistamine from the pharmacy over the road, which cleared it up. Don't go to the doctor in Nubian village next door as he is a rip off!!!!!! More
Thank you all at Nubian,for a wonderful holiday..........
Having visited Nubian Island on two occasions now,we found the complex,beautifully presented. The numerous staff,were polite,friendly and helpful at all times, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will definitely visit again. The holiday was exactly as expected, relaxing and enjoyable. Will be visiting again 2015...........
A little gem
Returned from this beautiful hotel on Friday 16th October, This was our third time in Sharm and by far the best hotel we have stayed in. Staff were exceptional , food was very good every day and we stayed in a a bungalow ( my own little Egyptian house!) which was light , airy and perfect. Nothing was too much trouble whilst there , special shout out to George in the lobby bar, Waheed and Morsey around the pool. Had a lovely pedicure in the spa for only Â£20 , met lots of lovely guests , English and Siberian ! and despite what some reviewers say all the guest mingled well and there was a good balance throughout our stay. Sharm has definatly improved since our last visist and there is far less hassle around the hotel as well as outside in the local area.Will definatly be returning , the sooner the better ... well done Nubian Ilsand :)More

We stayed from 5th to 15th October and had a fantastic holiday. We did not want to leave. The staff are a credit to the hotel and special mention has to be made about Maged the bottom pool barman who was lovely and very efficient, Moisey who also looked after the bottom pool bar when Maged went home, Wahid the pool towel guy, the animation team who always had time for a laugh and a joke and also Jo the British Guest Relations manager who does an excellent job making sure everything is okay, Mohammed in the Il Mondo restaurant was always there to make sure we had a drink and was always smiling, Ahmed from the lobby bar was also very efficient with his line 'just one more'.
We stayed in a Bungalow which yes as other reviews have said do look a little dated and could do with a little TLC although the patio furniture was being replaced when we left which definitely looked better than the old cane furniture.
Our cleaner was marvelous and left us some amazing figures made from the towels for when we got back to our room.
The only gripe we would have is that even though the hotel is all inclusive, at the Uptown Bar you are expected to pay for your drinks and at the Barracuda restaurant you have to pay for an evening meal which is probably why they were empty at night?
Other reviews also mentioned the food and we have to say that we could always find something to eat. Yes it does get a bit samey at times but was still delicious and my husband just loved the desserts.
The Russian guests as other people have mentioned are very rude and it is probably best not to use the restaurants first thing in the morning for breakfast and go after 8pm in the evening as it resembles a scrum. We even tried the good morning to them and were met with a glare so we just gave up and avoided them as much as possible.
We will definitely be going back to this hotel.More
