Inspired by the traditional “Dahabiya” Nile Cruisers, this one of a kind vessel takes you on a cruise into the essence of Egyptian life. Un-refurbished or restored, the owners decided to build to specification a vessel that captures within it the spirit of Egypt’s deepest tradition, while modifying it to accommodate and suit modern lifestyle. The vessel is divided into three equally exquisite levels. The lower level houses the bedrooms, staff area and kitchen. The main deck is divided into a terrace and secondary tea corner, with a spacious lounge and dining area filling up the remainder of the deck. The topmost deck is situated at the stern, with authentic Bedouin floor seating over straw carpets and floor cushions, making it the ideal spot for some perfect star gazing.
Nubia’s design is inspired by the abundant heritage that is predominant in the Nile villages of Upper Egypt. The prevalent Islamic and Ancient Egyptian motifs blend together perfectly, using desert colors and rich textures that bring back to life Egypt’s ancient glory. Custom made sofas that double as day beds are inspired by the Lotus flower – a classic symbol of ancient Egypt – and are accentuated by the use of traditional Egyptian upholstery. Doors are tailor made in some of Cairo’s finest back alley antique stores and are showcased as art. Matching chests are used as tables and cut out motifs for lighting. The authenticity of the desert inspired color scheme is kept alive by white washed woodwork and neutral upholstery adorned with traditionally embroidered throw pillows. Overall, the individual design elements combine to form a unique floating home that invites its guests to lay back and reflect on the serenity of the Nile river banks as they glide past.
