“Great place to relax”
Reviewed April 5, 2012

Stayed here as part of G Adventures tour. Nice beach with snorkel and kayak equipment supplied. There is a small reef with fish just 100 m from the hotel beach. Good service and room. Food was good as well.

If you are looking for a chilled out beach vibe with super-friendly hosts then Nakhil Inn is just perfect. As all the other reviews suggest, this place is really special. It's beautiful and 100% laid back yet the staff are excellent and will do all they can to make your stay wonderful - whether that is organising diving or desert tours or just bringing a drink out to your beach parasol! Nuweiba is a quiet town - if it's shopping and parties you are looking for you may be better off in Dahab but if it's prime, beach front accommodation, superb snorkeling on the house reef, perhaps a game of volleyball and a beer with friends Nakhil Inn is perfect!
Looking forward to going back soon - hopefully later this year!

If you want to just chill for a couple of days, then I can think of no better place. As you can see from the other reviews, most things that would might want to do are available, and it is up to you how and when you want to do it. Samir treats you like family whilst you are there. If you want that, and we did, it makes all the difference to your stay.

There are only a few places around the world that lodge in your brain - this is one of them!

Room Tip: Chalet with mezzanine for the wake-up sea view

I finally get around to writing our review on Nakhil Inn! Sorry it's taken so long Nakhill Inn!
We loved this place and we loved the people working there!Samir, the owner, welcomed us with his totally infectious friendly enthusiasm. As soon as we met him, we knew we were in for a treat!
So the venue itself; we are big travelers and have grown to love (and aim for) the chilled out, candlelit, beach cushioned, rustic ethnicity of individual beach hut type accommodation. We have always found the love that goes into these venues far more obvious and tangible than aircon'd starred hotels....well this was a prime example of just that.
The look of the place was warm and homely with a cool vibe. Great background music and meticulously clean. We were given a little tour of the place and then got to chose our chalet. The 2 floored chalets were just so charming, with a neutral pallet and a nautical theme to each one (kinda felt like waking up on a boat without the rocking!). Waking up higher than sea level and looking over the beach was a lovely sight and so clean and spacious. Very comfortable home from home feel with air con, lounge area and ensuite. The beach furniture was also lovely. Some guests are so comfy there they've stayed for weeks on end!
Samir is a keen watersports enthusiast and diver and he had us in the water in no time at all! What a great guy!
We chose this place for all the above and we got exactly that. 100% recommend if you're looking for relaxation, amazing snorkeling, great atmosphere, fab service and perfect temperature (we went in June).
It was also a great place for booking all sorts of other trips and things to do. We climbed Mount Sinai (totally awesome experience), which was why we chose this part of Egypt. We booked it all through Nakhil Inn, easy peasy.
Ok so we loved it! point made!

Usually reviews paint a description of a place which is then found to be sadly lacking in reality. We thought that the Nakhil Inn looked pretty good on the website. The reality was even better because the website couldn't show how thoughtful, kind and friendly the staff are. The Nakhil Inn is an oasis of calm and relaxation. Soft white sand on the beach; fabulous house reef; great food; comfortable rooms .........what more could you hope for? Well, how about great advice on trips and activities; free use of kayaks, snorkels, beach towels and sunbeds; a smashing indoor space with snooker, table football, books, games and a fireplace for those evenings when the Egyptian weather isn't quite what you thought it would be! When we confessed to feeling nervous about our initial trip out to the reef Samer went out with us and gave us the confidence to repeat it on our own many times. Although the area is very run down following the troubles of the previous years, the Nakhil Inn is well maintained. If you are looking for a restful holiday in a small and personal hotel at a very reasonable cost, then do see if there are some rooms free here.

This resort in the rather ho-hum village of Nuweiba has imported sand and its own private beach front - something you would expect in a much more top-end place - on the north edge of town. The other resorts sprawled along the beach rely on the local sand, which gets pretty compacted. There's a water-path out to the cliff edge of the coral reef straight out from Nakhil, a couple of hundred meters. Beware if you get off the trail as the water is so shallow, and the sea urchins so perilous, with spines as long as knitting needles, you could really hurt yourself. The dive centre attached organizes day trips south to Dahab and north a few km to a fab diving site, should you get bored with Nuweiba.
There's an excellent buffet breakfast as well as decent evening meal service with bar (although equally good fare at cheaper prices can be had elsewhere along the strip). Everything I wanted - basic cable tv, a/c, clean sheets and honest room service.
The place has all sorts of kit and toys available, so you needn't pack your gear unless you are fussy about it. There's a laptop with free internet at the bar. Charming and nicely decorated sprawl to the place, with one comfy play room for large groups or families.
My only criticism is, if you are a solo traveller, it may be difficult to get on with diving groups, who monopolize the diving centre's one vehicle & driver. Hiring a jeep on your own can get a bit pricey. Also, there was no horseback riding on offer, unlike the brochure's ads - I asked around. Otherwise, excellent value for the dosh: four star priced like a three star.

Room Tip: The all-wooden chalets with loft were my chosen digs, although if you prefer a tile floor and more c...

We had a lovely time here, stayed 3 nights and came back for more. Our room was spacious and boasted a deck with an ocean view. The inn is very well equipped, providing beach front lounge chairs, towels, reef shoes, kayaks, even shampoo (few hotels in Egypt provide it), as well as a buffet breakfast. Samer and Libby are friendly and so helpful; Samer's help was crucial to us when we got in a tight spot.
So why not 5 stars? Surprisingly, one drawback was the noise. Our room opened on the courtyard, with boisterous diners supping far into the wee hours. Also, the "new age" music drove us nuts, especially when we wanted to listen to the gentle lapping of the waves. Bring your ear plugs and you'll be ok.

Room Tip: Perhaps a bungalow is a better choice.
