... Sheesha and offered me a puff. Not being a smoker I was nervous I might have an embarrassing coughing fit so everyone jumped on the 'teach Heidi' band wagon and they all started talking over one another to tell me what to do. I gathered that, because I'm not a smoker, not to inhale into my lungs but into my mouth so I can still absorb the sweet taste and achieve the 'white cloud'. It took a few attempts, and there was a minor coughing fit coupled with laughter, ...
... The reef was absolutely beautiful where the water was around 10 meters deep. After snorkelling all of us had a game of volleyball and as usual it was highly competitive as Nolan injured his toe. Luckily for us we had Sophie who was prepared for every situation and came to the aid of Nolan.
After a few games of volleyball and freshening up it was time for dinner. The food was nice and the setting was amazing as we sat in a long table not too far from the beach and enjoyed ...

We also had two interesting taxi rides.

I was hoping the hospital here would tell me my spine is healing as it ought, but as the xrays taken here resemble more a murky pond than vertebrae and I do not trust the doctor's eyes, that didn't happen. Meanwhile, as I am supposed to take it easy and not stress my back, days lazily pass sitting by the sea in Sinai looking across to Saudi and watching the slow ferry to Jordan on the horizon.

Historical Traveler Reviews Hilton Nuweiba Coral Resort
Date Visited 29th Nov - 13th Dec
What refreshing change to find a second hilton hotel we cannot fault. the staff were polite and friendly and the service excellent. The food was excellent on every occasion but still allowed for a la carte for a nominal charge if you wanted something special. The dive centre located at the hotel is excellent and the house reef and beach are superb. Fully inlusive at this hotel means fully inclusive as far as drinking is conscerned we could not fault the place.
We go to egypt diving at least 4 times a year but this is the first hotel we shall return to just to be at the hotel. Our second choice would be Hiton Sharks Bay.
If you are trying to decide which hotel to stay at - you will not be disappointed if you choose the Hilton Nuweiba!
A group of us travelled here, we found that 2 weeks was just not enough. On an ALL INCLUSIVE deal with Longwood Holidays we found that the hotel was set away from everywhere else! Perfect. The Food was good, however the only qualm we had was that on AI juice was not on the list! And the singer sang all the same songs day in and day out! Bit of varierty would have been good!
We stayed at the Hilton Nuweiba for 9 nights in Oct/Nov 2004. The hotel was lovely, the service FANTASTIC and the weather not bad either considering the time of year (massive storm on day 1 but after that pretty good - 30-35ish)
Peaceful Beach Resort
Although there were some plumbing problems in the hotel while we were there (loss of water service), we enjoyed our stay. The property is immaculately clean and the staff is very friendly and accommodating.
We had a fantastic 2 weeks at this hotel in late September. We travelled with Longwood Holidays and flew to Taba with Excel Airways, who we found to provide a high quality service and very comfortable flight. We went all inclusive and you really couldn't fault the hotel, staff or location.
Loved the hotel
We also flew out with air Atlanta which was delayed by 3 hours and in flight service was not brilliant, No film, Bad PA system and slow service. We flew back from Sharm with Excell airways and cannot fault it, We also went with Libra holidays and apparently they will soon be flying to Taba using Excell so transfer time will be reduced, The hotel is the oldest Hilton in Egypt and in some places is looking a bit worn but we heard that is going to be refurbished starting with the restaurant talking of which the food was excellant with plenty of choice and staff that cannot do enough to help you, gardens are well maintained and rooms are spacious and clean. We will definately go back ..
Booked through Libra who fly in via Sharm and use Air Atlanta who appear to have constant delays so would suggest looking into booking through Longwood who fly to Taba and where the transfer is shorter.
Fabulous place at the Hilton
Visit the Hilton at Nuweiba for a peaceful, enjoyable holiday. There is everything to cater for all persons and even wild dolphins to swim with. The snorkelling is amongst some of the best in the world and the Lion Fish around the pier are spectacular at night with there huge spikes on display.
Everything about this trip was excellent from start to finish.
