4th Trip, New Hotel

A travel blog entry by andyanneattwood

Only a 4 1/2 hour flight, arrive earlier than normal so a couple of hours sunlight left. Interesting journey via taxi to the hotel, which included having to get out of it as we got grounded on a sleeping policeman! Hotel is very spread out, nice gardens. First rooms not to good but the girls manage secure new ...

11/11/2013 - Sharm El-Sheikh, Egypt
We took the taxi(or limo) to Na'ama Bay. The limo service dropped us off at a "friends" store so that we could have a place to call when we wanted to go back to the ship. Of course, they wanted us to spend our money at the store on knock-off t-shirts of the Hard Rock Cafe, or oils/perfumes , or whatever. We did ...

Hibiscus Tea on the Red Sea

... m posting the video - it's bumpy because of the bus and because I'm not great with video, but you can just listen if you're interested. At about 12:20 in the video you can see our military guard chase off a vehicle they felt was too close to our bus.

About halfway through our journey we stop at a convenience store (the Israelites would have loved that!) and Bruce and I buy Cokes for our military guards. Turns out they can't accept them because it could be seen ...

... sheikh, hey i'll still alive and for that i'm thankful. I got past all the mitary gates and got here in one piece. Next i just hope that the sharks don't eat me. sharm is a large town where Europeans come to dive, snorkel, mingle and have fun. Lots of russains here as i believe the russain govenment has some type of travel agreement and the russian's can fly and stay here quiet cheaply, around 500 euros for 7 nights and flights. since the ...

... on my way, Rusher has no idea I am coming. Upon arrival I am convinced I will catch a cab but in Bristol, you have to call and I dont have the brain power so off I trek with my suitcase to grab my keys from Gaetan at the Bank (a pub) and then off to surprise Rush.

Letting myself in I leave all of my stuff downstairs, sneak up the stairs, into the bathroom where I remove clothes, wash face and teeth and creep in to Rushers room posative I will wake ...

    Happy Holidays 2006 Nubian Island We Love You


    We stayed at the nubian island from the 28/6/06 to the 12/7/06 what a wonderful hotel its a 5 star as stated on our night of arrival we were given a welcome drink and then given our keys pool cards and list of meal times etc.We made our way to our room which was a bungalow at the bottom end of the hotel we walked thourgh the hotel grounds which were lovely and well kept the porter brought our suitcases.We had a pool view which was only 50 yards to beach and was near to lunchtime resturant. The hotel was soptless you always saw gardners cleaners they cleaned the pool every day.If you tip the maid on your first day put one english pound under your pillow and they look after you.We also tipped the pool guy siade on our first day and he put our towels out every day for us.The bungalow was very spacious my two girls aged 11 and 14 had there own room the main room had a king size bed which would have slept four people and had air condioning and my girls room had two single beds and also had air condioning the bathroom had a walkin shower separate toilet dont take shower gel soap or shampoo as they fill this every day. Your towels are changed daily and your sheets they also decorate your bed with flowers swans etc.The main resturant was lovely lots of differant food sweats chips pizza chicken for kids the staff in the resturant were very friendly our waiter ramy was brilliant he was always smiling helpful and kind nothing was to much trouble and mohamed the resturant manger was also brillant he also joined in our eveing entertainment. The bar staff were always good we tipped them and they brought our drinks to us my thanks also to amedeaus and michel they looked after us. The cleaner shaban was lovely he worked hard as soon as you smoked a cigarette the ash tray was gone and you recieved a clean one. Both pools have swim up bars. Dont take too much notice what people say about upset stomachs and sickness the stomach upset is commen and you soon get over it its not the hotel food. Take english money as they like this in eygpt.We done the trip to the national park and its worth doing but if you book trips book them in naama bay as they work out cheeper and you can haggle the price we paid £45 for this trip which was three adults and one child all meals and drink icluedid. We have stayed in many 5 star hotels but this is the best 10/10.Its so good we have booked for xmas and next summer worth doing if you want a lovely relaxing holiday the italins were freindly even though its mainly italin hotel but thats fine as there were quite a few english they are due to open an english bar which we showen by the manger its lovely.Thanks nubian island for a lovely holiday. A big thanks you to ramy mohamed amedeaus michel siade and shaban see you xmas.We strongly recommend this hotel.

    Nubian Village/Island - Why do People Moan!


    We arrived mid to late evening and were given a lovely bungalow within the Island resort (although I had Village on my confirmation!). We were asked if we would like to go for dinner first as the dining room was closing while the porter looked after our bags.



    I have just returned from a weeks all inclusive holiday at the Nubian Island hotel with my girlfriend and we had a very relaxing time.

    Excellent hotel set in a beautiful setting about 4 miles from the airport


    The Nubian Island Hotel is a 5* newly built hotel situated on the same site as the 4* Nubian Village Hotel. The complex is situated on the North side of the peninsula about 4 miles from the international Sharm el Sheikh airport.

    Very Relaxing


    Stayed at the Nnbian Village {Nubian Island}. It was a great place to stay staff very friendly and helpful at all times. The heated pool was very warm and plenty of sunbeds. The sea was close and warm and the swimming with the fish off the jetty was the best. Try the Quad Bikes into the desert.The food was ok and plentyful would not hesitate to go back and for the price I would recommend this hotel to anyone.

    Nice break but thats all


    me and my girlfriend have just got back from the nubian island hotel and I am still suffering from an upset stomach 4days after it started. I have just read that the water could be to blame but I definitely dont think that the food helped matters. Same dishes everyday and uncooked meat was common and not enough snacks to fill up with throughout the day.Previous people had mentioned there not being any chips, well we got them twice and I can tell those people they didnt miss much.

    Wow, Fantastic !!!!


    My wife and i have just returned from a week staying at The Nubian Island (feb 5th). We stayed in a bungalow that was spotless clean and had a double kingsize 6ft 6 wide bed. This complex was only finished in march 2005 and the landscaping was second to none!

    Good and bad!


    Did the Red Sea cruise on Thomson Spirit the first week, and were booked into the NUBIEN VILLAGE RESORT the 2nd week. On arrival,we were put into THE NUBIEN ISLAND RESORT next door, and were told this was 5* and the Village only 4*.---Well--the bungalows we stayed in were great, and very clean,--the grounds were magnificently landscaped, with little wooden arches and bridges over a lovely stream, which ran right past our door, and 2 large swimming pools--(only one of which was heated)

    When in Egypt....


    We arrived back from Nubian Island [next door to Nubian Village] this morning.

    Nubian Island - great hotel!


    Stayed at the Nubian Island for a week and this is a great hotel. The bungalows are wonderful, spacious, clean and very well maintained, as are the beautiful surrounding gardens. The staff are very friendly and I would recommend tipping them early on in your holiday, as it does make a difference. Turning to the food, I have read numerous other reviews of this hotel which are very critical of the food and people claim to have had upset stomachs as a result of this. I would like to dispel this myth as I firmly believe that the problem Brits have in Egypt with upset tums is the mineral content in their bottled water - it's so different from what we're used to. We got upset tums on the 2nd day of our holiday, after having eaten nothing but a couple of slices of toast but we did drink about 4 or 5 bottles of Egyptian mineral water. The upset tums lasted for the entire week, so I blame the mineral water (which obviously you can't avoid drinking!) and not the restaurant food, which was always hot, well presented and plentiful. I recommend this hotel as somewhere to relax and soak up the sun as it's location would not be right for those people who want a bit more action and livlier surroundings.
