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.

Our summer holiday
Where do I start firstly very disappointed we didn't get to the hotel of our choice after time taken to pick the things we where looking for in a hotel, after saving hard all year to get told we were going to the Nubian Island hotel at the last minute. So off we set on the 11 th July to to our hotel, when we arrived it didn't look to bad but very limited with only two pools instead of the 4 our original hotel had, talking to people that had been to the sonesta beach hotel before they said it was better that's why they had booked to go back . My husband got bitten every night it was a nighmare going to bed. The room was sprayed at least twice But he ended up sleeping in is trousers and socks In the end we dragged a sunbed from the pool in for him to sleep on they eventualy changed his bed for the last night that was the only night he was able to sleep though. we are not happy coming back very tired and unhappy. The main restaurant was more like a butlins food hall, as you ate you had waiters pushing trolleys around collecting plates you struggled to have a conversation and as it got busier the din from the plate collection got louder if you sat next to a table that finished before you they just cleared the table plus cloth ready for the next campers not what you expect in a restaurant, as I say reminiscent of the eighties butlins all together not happy with our experience. The hotel liaison lady joe was very nice and did her best to help.More

This wasn't the hotel we initially booked as it was changed last minute so we were quite worried as we knew nothing about it .. This was a brilliant hotel an by the end of our week we were very happy that we had been moved... Everything about the place was great from the food to the staff. Only down side was the amount of Russians there was but after holidaying in egypt for 5yrs you can't escape them just ignore. I wish I had a gud memory so I cud name the staff who went out of there way to make it brilliant but the only name that comes to mind is mario down at the beach selling massages etc we told him from the first day we didn't do massages so he never bothered us again only to stop with us for bout 30 mins every day for a bita Craic...... Was a fab holiday and if I go to egypt next year(which I prob will) I will def be booking the Nubian Island ...More

Utterly Amazing.......WE WILL BE BACKâï¸ï¿½ï¿½
We returned from the Nubian Island on 23rd July after a weeks stay, and could not be more depressed to be home! Everything about the hotel was fantastic! I'm a disabled traveller and needed some special room requests, which were met and confirmed as soon as we checked in. The hotel is extremely clean, the restaurant and bar waiters (especially big Mohammed) are worth their weight in gold as they work so hard to keep you constantly topped up with drinks, which in 50+ degrees is a must, especially cold, bottled water! Some people said the food was a bit the same each night, but we experienced a different meal every night, and the bbq night was fab. There was everything you could ask for and plenty of variety. Jo, the hotels customer relations was so helpful. She arranged a matress topper for my bed and even had tea and coffee making facilities and some mozzi spray delivered to our room after our daughter got a few bites. She came around the pool every morning to check that everyone was having a good time, if she hadn't caught you going into or coming our of breakfast. She made our whole experience at the Nubian Island fantastic. during the day we stayed up by the quiet pool so weren't hassled by staff selling treatments for the spa, but when we asked to speak to them they were great, and my husband and daughter both enjoyed a pamper. The towel guy was great, and I feel guilty that I don't know his name, as soon as he saw us each morning he put our towels down and we went to breakfast. We didn't experience much of the daytime entertainment as we stayed around the quiet pool, but people we spoke to who were around the lively pool said it was great. At night the entertainment team always put on a good show and got the guests up taking part (beware of the Karaoke, they'll get you up singing one way or another). Ksusha and Kaylee from the entertainment team were fabulous and went out of their way to make sure you had a good time, and I'm in touch with them both now that we are home. It was just a such amazing atmosphere at the Nubian Island, as chilled or as busy as you wanted it to be. We've decided, as a family, we'll definitely be back next summer but for two weeks as a week just wasn't long enough. Just gutted to be home now in a very cold and wet Northwest ð Well done to all the staff, keep up the good work and we'll see you next year!More
