The stand-outs here are the two 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 two 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.

Pretty good but a few issues especially with entertainment
Nubian Island has many good features but a few issues need addressing before I can give it 5 stars. It is really well located, beautiful lobby and bar areas. Excellent staff, so friendly, especially the lobby bar staff and Ramy in the dining room. The staff really make the hotel. It is totally all inclusive and we found it very hard to spend any money once there. The jetty at the beach side of the hotel was brilliant and when the weather is good the snorkelling is breath-taking. Goggles are just fine - try them first before you buy a snorkel. The hotel was quiet, a few Russians and Italians and they were fine. A lot of reviews have criticised the Russians but we thought they were just fine, not rude, not pushy. The restaurant is ok, the food is safe but not exciting. We think it caters to Russian tastes but we found it a bit boring. Where was the Egyptian food? The rooms were ok, beds a little hard but they were clean and quiet and fairly spacious. We had bungalow 920. The room had a peculiar smell although a little air freshener sorted that. A bulb was broken when we first got there but they had it repaired very quickly. The TV needed changing. It had bad reception and only a couple of English programmes. OK, I know you will same that why would we watch TV...fair enough. However it did pour down one day and was chilly outside. The hotel has very little to do (especially for kids) in the rare occasion of rain. The evening entertainment is odd. Really bizarre actually ranging from very good (the light show) to fairly awful (the animation team did try but they are not professional entertainers). Also all of the evening entertainment is actually in a different hotel next door (Nubian Village). So you walk over in the dark and once you get there you can't get a drink because the Nubian Village is not part of the all inclusive package. We walked back to the bar in the Nubian Island, got drinks there, and then walked back to the Nubian Village...in the dark. This can't be right can it? In fairness there was a tiny bar in the Nubian Village 'theatre' but it only served really strong measures of spirits. No beer or wine. The poor entertainment is what lets Nubian Island down, and I don't think it would be hard to improve. Apart from this aspect the hotel is pretty good.More

We stayed at nubian island for a week in january, it was absolutely fabulous. We went with our 2 girls who are 1 and 2, brother in law and wife and their two kids and mother and father in law. it was father in laws 50 so we surprised him out there. The room was fabulous and close to the main restaurant it was spacious with a large super king bed and a cot for the little one. (fit the two year old in ours too). the shower was powerful and hot and we got a kettle, was careful about steralising bottles so brought milton and the restaurant provided and large tupperware. (thank you). the food was fantastic we all ate very well and none of us had a upset stomach or anything. the steaks were delicious, and wide variety everyday. we found more choice at the main restaurant but the other one was very nice too. we went to the Italian one one night and had pizza /pasta which you have to choose what you have the morning before you go. which was delicious although we found the service a bit poor but there was a bug crowd of us so understandable. the swimming pools were lovely and the kids loved them. the one near the main reception was a bit cold so spent most of our time at the bottom one. the pool bar was brill service and entertainment was great. you can also go next door which has a waterpark. with 3 very good fun slides and and baby shallow pool with a few slides. (good fun for the adults too) overall we would definitely recommend and come back. it was lovely, the staff were lovely and we had a lovely time. one point we found was opposite where there are some shops they do a camel ride and coax you into getting a photo then sit you on it and take you for a walk and expect money. then when you dont pay after they get a bit funny.. but they used the kids to go near them. I didnt dig that. More
We loved the customer service.very helpful and friendly staff. Location was great. Great food good choice. Heated pool near the sea so bit cold due to wind. Wonderfully maintained gardens. Will definitely return. I highly recommend this hotel. More

Home from home ... Another amazing holiday !!!!
Well we have just returned again from the amazing Nubian island and it was again a fantastic holiday.. This year we took our sons and his girlfriend and they all have enjoyed the holiday and want to return with us again next year. The staff at the hotel cannot do enough for you and many of them remembered us from last year, which was lovely. We were spoilt as we recieved a free meal in the fish restaurant, which I add was very tasty and enjoyable, and drinks in the fridge and fruit delivered to our rooms. The hotel staff in the bars and restaurannts were and always are happy to see you and we're always smiling... The food in the main restaurant was vast, there was lots to choose from and we all found lots of foods that we enjoyed. We also spent most of our time round the lively pool and the restaurant that was there served beautiful meals, and some amazing soups!!!!, and it was nice to sit out on the terrace, again the staff were always happy to see you and tend to all your needs,,, then there was our barman "Maged" , you cannot find a more genuine and happy person if you tried, everyday he would talk to us and make sure we were all watered, and the cocktails he made were lovely, defiantly looking forward to seeing him again next year... The animation team were amazing too, Reece and Emily were always around and were happy to take a while to get to know us and make us feel at home, they did get the younger people of the group involved in the day to day activities and myself and a few others did the aqua gym with Reece and I must say it was enjoyable and lots of fun. They are an asset to A class animation, they also took us out to hard rock cafe and stayed with us all night which was nice as we were away from the hotel.. The holiday ws made even better thanks to these two guys.. Also such a nice surprise to see one face from the animation team last year, Tony, he was fab last year and again it was nice to see him bring the place more alive, nice to see you back tony, hope you stay till next year.... All in all Nubian island is A+, a great, happy, tidy, friendly place to stay, like I say home from home, we shall all be booking next years holiday to return, Thankyou to you all for a fabulous stay, never disappointed ,,,,,More

Perfect hotel for winter sun get away!
This was the first time staying in this hotel and am already thinking of going back again. The hotel it's self was really nice and always kept clean inside and out. I only had meals in the main resturant and there was plenty to chose every night and was varied really well so it felt like it wasn't the same every night. The hotel staff were very good as well nothing was too much trouble for them and were always happy to help. The animation team were really good if you like to join in the games then there is plenty on offer to keep you busy in the day and at night as well with the shows. The guest relations team were great as well if you needed anything or had any problems then they would do there best to help you out! Finally i learnt how to dive with the dive center within the hotel and what an experiance it was amazing. I would reccomend trying it out as sharm is 1 of the best places to go and dive!
