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.

This was my 4th time to Sharm but 1st time to Nubian Island and 1st time travelling solo. I love Egypt for the guaranteed weather, lovely hotels, friendly staff and stunning scenery. At Nubian I was not to be disappointed. Check in was swift and efficient, nice glass of chilled juice waiting. Shown to my room and had the aircon and safe operation explained to me. Room was fine, very clean, just what I'd expect and want as a base of operations. Shower was both instantly hot and fantastically powerful! Grabbed a quick bite to eat in the restaurant, plenty to choose from. Not everything is going to be to English tastes but you certainly won't starve. Soups for lunch and dinner were lovely. Avoid generic 'meat' dish- this is camel or so I was told. Freshly made omelettes for breakfast were great and very tasty. Coffee and tea is help yourself though, don't wait for a guy to come round with a pot. First night in the bar I was spotted by the hotel's Animation team as a 'new face' and was welcomed fantastically. Made to feel right at home and invited to go to the 'White Party' in the hotel pub. White denotes the clothing dress code, it's not a racist event :-) The two Emily's, Blonde and Brown, who I believe are famous on Trip advisor are the British members of the team and both very helpful and friendly- Emily Brown especially was a delight to talk to and always had a smile on her face. The rest of the Animation team are a mix of nationalities but no less friendly but with varying levels of English. Natalya (tooomooooroooow) is fluent, Nikita (keep up those new phrases), not bad and Ivan ($50 all inclusive) is getting there :-) Thanks to all you guys, you really made my holiday awesome!! Special mention to Jo- the hotel's British PA. She'll come and check on you everyday to make sure you don't have any problems and if you do she sorts them out. No messing- this lady is devastatingly efficient. No tea and coffee in my room- BOOM, sorted. Patio doors rattling in the sea breeze at night- BOOM, sorted. This is the first hotel I've stayed in with a dedicated in house problem solver and I'm very impressed. What else can I say well, pound coins are your friend in Egypt. Want the best sunbed reserved for you all holiday? Couple of quid to the pool boy- I had Ahmed, great guy, and its done. No fuss no bother. Want your Vodka Coke instantly handed to you as you walk into the bar, couple of quid and a handshake- Cheers Abd Dullah Want drinks brought to you by poolside rather than- well you get the idea. Other quick points to note- Italian resurant was lovely, I didn't try the seafood one as it's not my thing but heard good reports about it. The grounds with their wandering paths, winding streams and quaint wooden brides are lovely. 'Do not disturb' signs available from towel guy if you don't want to be approached by excursion vendors though on the whole I found the majority pleasant to speak with even if I didn't book anything. Adam in the Papyrus shop is a great guy, free gift if you go say hello and no hard sell afterwards, think he just likes speaking with people and the no pressure approach is a welcome change. I bought a lovely glow in the dark piece for my daughter. Massages- I had two- apparently having them climb on the table with you is normal, not a reason to panic. Totally enjoyed my two weeks and will def be back!!More

This is a great hotel which does what it says on the box. Yes of course the sun goes down early......it's December......can't mark the hotel down for that......the snorkelling from the jetty is excellent and when the tide is in you can swim from the beach. The decor in the rooms is a little tired but nothing that can't be lived with. The staff are great, some of the friendliest and most attentive we have come across in Egypt(our 6th visit and 6th hotel). No there isn't much evening entertainment but we knew that when we booked having read the hotel details and reviews before booking. The food is a little limited in choice but I think that is due to the time of year, but what there is is good quality and there is always something that you can enjoy. Again we have watched people start drinking at 9.30 am each day and also pile their plates with fresh fruit every meal and then complain about being ill - enough said. Loads of mosquitos but the hotel does its best...spraying the grounds regularly. Overall this is a great value for money hotel.More

Lovely Relaxing Stay.
Stayed here between 10th to the 21st November where the weather was 31 degrees every day. Booked a private taxi transfer but to be honest it wasn't really worth it as it was only 10 mins to the hotel. Checking in was quick and simple but our room wasn't to my expectations, I expected a double room as I'd booked but was given a twin. This was changed the next day as the hotel was full on arrival. The room was spacious and clean but the bed was like a rock, I thought I was Fred Flintstone on holiday......... Some of my friends probably agree with me there..... Food was good in the food hall with enough to get you fed each day but it did get a bit repetitive to be honest. Still no food upsets with the tum so you can't really complain. We used the Italian several times and didn't mind paying extra for a very nice Fillet Steak. Â£7.00 was the cost, I'm on holiday what's Â£7.00 in the scheme of things..... And Hammada and Mohammad made our nights there a treat. We used the pool by the sea, quite loud if your near the music hut but still lots more going on and TBH fun watching the children having fun.... Magan was a blast at the pool bar, lovely man .. We stayed at an all Adults hotel here in Sharm last year and it was like a graveyard. The top pools your spot if you want that...... Did the VIP Cruise as we did last year, again enjoyable. We also Scuba Dived using the hotel dive centre, use these guys it was excellent. Had several chats with Jo the customer relations rep and Muhammad the Thompson rep. Two lovely people. Entertainment....... Pool team etc were hard working and fun to watch...... No I didn't join in.. Sorry I'm on holiday to relax....... Night time entertainment...... Sorry but your better watching paint dry as long as you have earplugs in...... Shocking..! One night I thought I was at a wake....... Nubian Island you must improve this........ Also you need to address your wifi, had to pay !! 5* hotel...? .. I don't think so. And it was slow and only in the lobby area. And last but not least, 75% Russian 25%,British, this was the only downside that got my goat. I live in London and I can tolerate most people but these took the biscuit. Manners mainly....... Eat after 8pm if you don't want barging out of the way, and I mean barging....... Would I return, most likely the hotel and staff were excellent from reception to the gardeners, (bar the bed) as with the last comment on others!! I know what to expect next time. And I found out that the 10th is the Russian half term week...... So it'll be the 17th next year.......More

I spent 7 nights late November/ early December with three friends at the nubian island. This was my second visit first time with my husband. I was treated like a vip having filled my fridge with drinks, a basket of fruit and complementary voucher to the seafood restaurant. My second visit was as good as my first visit, I soon remembered why I wanted to return! It's because you are looked after so well. The staff are so helpful, always with a smile on their faces, I will be returning again. The food was very gd, however a little grumble is that they could do a few more cocktails, that a small grumble and should not deter anyone from booking this fab hotel ð the weather was about 26-27 degrees LOVELY. If you have any concerns speak to Jo who works for both nubian island and village, she is very helpful and always comes round and asks if she could do anything to make your holiday better ? But of course it was perfect apart from having NO KETTLE in your room. ( US BRITS DO LIKE OUR TEA ) can't wait to return, keep doing what you do best WELL DONE NUBIAN ISLANDMore
Great winter sun
Well what can I say, my second stay at this Hotel and enjoyed every minute of my two weeks in the sun. great to see friends we made last year and hopefully more years to come. The welcome at the Nubian Island Hotel was very welcoming and reception staff remembered us from last year. One of my favourite people on this visit was Ahmed the guy from the quiet pool who gave out towels and worked tirelessly all day to keep pool clean and tidy and always with a smile. Syed who was our room cleaner for the second year was excellent he got us extra pillow with in one minute of asking and left the room spotless everyday (could do with him at home) I must also mention the news paper man for the last two years he has brought our paper to the sun lounger everyday always with a pleasant smile and hello. The food is quite good but just now and again could be a little hotter, but always plenty to choose from. Joanne the English guest relations was very helpful with a mind full of information if you want to know anything she is the lady to ask. The animation team were mostly Russian became a pain keep shouting every night its show time this was most annoying when there is only four people in a room yet they shout at the top of there voices I did on one occasion have to tell them to shut up. There was no get up and go about them and found them very dull compared to last year. If you are looking for somewhere to go for some winter sun and just relax then I do recommend the Nubian Island. I do have to mention that the wi-fi is Â£5 a day but is till not much good. i am sure this hotel would do better with free Wi-fi that actually worked.More
