I stayed in a Bedouin Room at Sharks Bay Umbi Village from 09 to 16 October, with daily diving from their boat Freedom 1. This was my 45th. visit to Egypt, though my first time at Sharks Bay. I usually dive from liveaboards (which can be quite intensive) but this time wanted a more relaxing week - away from the... More

Secound time diving with Umbi, and again a great experiance. Everything from the on time pickups to the lunch on the boat was superb, and the diving fantastic. They really are so good, even picking you up on a non diving day so you can chill out on their beach and collect your kit, this allows you to rinse it... More

This is the 3rd time we have dived with Umbi Sharks Bay. Last year it was very quiet due to the problems in Egypt and only the Brits were travelling. That was great as we virtually had the boat to our selves and most days had privately guided dives. This year it was slight busier, but we were still treated... More

We stayed at the hotel for a week. The clocks changed the day we arrived so the driver was an hour late to pick us up from the airport. That was not a major problem and he was very apologetic, my only issue was that we tried several times to ring the hotel and there was no answer. The rooms... More

Thank you for taking the time to write your review of your stay with us here. We are sorry for the late airport pickup and that no-one was available to take your call; it can be that there was a problem with the phone lines (which does happen sadly) but if we had just missed your call then we do...

I came across this wonderful place when desperately searching for a laid back and non tourist hotel. Not at all an easy challenge in Sharm. We own a horse riding company in Sharm and really hate the big hotels and at the point of almost giving up we found this place. I spoke to the team online via a chat... More

We just had three days diving with Umbi Divers, my husband Gary was scuba diving and I went along as a spectator, have to say felt very chilled after the first day, it was so peaceful when all the divers were in the water, just me and my book, heaven. The crew were fantastic and couldn't do enough for you... More

Thank you for everything, we really enjoyed the diving with you. I can really recommend this diving center, they have their own boat which it's not overloaded as the other boats usually are. The instructor has a lot of experience and the whole stuff is friendly. Thank you once again, we will see us soon

Hotel: Great value for money, rooms are clean, problem in the bathroom solved immediately, and view from balcony was really great, but stairs are a bit too much for some. Diving: Umbi Diving Village has it's own jetty, so it was very convenient for divers like us going to and from the dive sites. Our group (6 divers) had one... More

This place is the best place to book your diving adventures. Professionalism of the people combined with reasonable price. Look for Mr Adel as your diving guide for a worry free and more fun diving experience. When it comes to the accommodation you have options of having a view of the of the Bay but endure the steps going up... More

Dived with Umbi in March of this year 2014 so it was quiet. First day I had a good shore dive from the dive centre with my guide 1 to 1 ratio. Next day I was picked up early, waited around the dive centre for an hour, finally my guide appeared with his student. Yeah that's right, my fun dives... More

Thank you for taking the time to highlight the problems you had diving with us. Firstly we are happy that you at least enjoyed your first shore dive and we sincerely apologise for the "unprofessional" experience you had the following day. On checking the dive manifests for that time we can see that you did have two very short dives... More
