Thank you for taking the time to write this review of your stay and diving with us. We have been having problems with our Wi-Fi connections recently, partly due to the big conferences that are happening in Sharm at the moment, and we are looking into ways to improve it.. Hopefully we will see you again sometime in the future... More

Is a Hotel good if you are going to dive. If not is fare away the center and commercial areas but in the Hotel you can ask for the taxi service and is good and you have a 15 minutos tryp to the commercial areas.

Thanks for taking the time to write this review. You are correct - we are about 15 minutes by taxi from Naama Bay (Soho Square is only a couple of minutes away though) but Sharks Bay Umbi itself is a laid back and peaceful place - perfect for people who want to chill out on the beach. More

Very friendly personnel at the desk. Diveguide was very experienced and carefull with the underwater enviroment. Crew on the boat very helpfull with extra compliments to the chef, a real whizzard in the kitchen. Overall we had a perfect time.

I stayed in this hotel 2 times for one night - on the way to Dahab and back. As for me this hotel was perfect to stay cause it's on the first line close to the beach. Rooms are big and really nice and the hotel itself looks really cool like the castle in mountain. There was only two things... More

Thanks for taking the time to write this review. To answer a couple of your comments: Most comments we receive about the food are very positive. Sadly prices in Egypt have risen a lot recently but we do our best to keep the prices low and competitive. The jetty, which we own, can be busy morning and evenings as the... More

I stayed in Sharks Bay Umbi for 8 nights with my wife and we loved it. We wanted some winter sun, but we both love diving, so this was perfect for us. Umbi was exactly what we wanted, not touristy and tacky, but a bit more relaxed, low-key, and a brilliant location. The accommodation was good. We were in one... More

Thank you for the review and especially for letting us know about the annoying shop keepers. We are dealing with it now to make sure that is stops. Sharks Bay Umbi is a 'no hassle' resort! More

I and 9 of my Scuba club divers have just spent a week with the guys and girls at Umbi and have nothing but praise for them. Great diving both from boat and the house reef (an amazing house reef infact; very big and teeming with life of all sizes from anemone fish to napoleon wrasse and moray eels!), excellent... More
