This was my first visit to the Umbi diving village and I experienced a great week there. If you are looking for a relaxed, friendly and personal spot to go for daily scuba diving outside the large luxury hotels this is the place to be. The staff is friendly and helpful and the bedouin tent next to the restaurant is... More

We came in mid December for a week of diving after visiting mainland Egypt. I picked Umbi because I wanted to stay somewhere that was more authentic, not some 5 star all inclusive mega resort. Umbi is a beautiful little resort, with some really lovely Bedouin styled rooms overlooking the Red Sea and Tiran Island. We walked past the beach... More

We arrived in late November after the Russian Air crash and there was a very low occupancy rate. We had arrived after spending 2 weeks in Cairo and touring the Nile. We had traveled a long way from the West Coast of the United States and went to the Sinai against our Government's advise. Most but not all of the... More

I am sorry that your time with us was not as it should have been. I have looked into your comments and breakfast not being available one morning was a oversight. The restaurant staff mistakenly believed that all guests had been for breakfast early as cleared everything away. Water bottles are provided on day of arrival only. After that they... More

Room with a view, relaxed vibe, good restaurant and chill out area (avoid pizza however), allowed a late checkout, on time airport pickup, and the snorkelling in the bay is as good as some of the sites visited out at Ras national park.

It is far away from downtown Naana Bay or Soho area. It takes app. 10 minutes by taxi and costs 10~20 USD one way. The room is vey old, and there are rats running on a bed. Rooms and restaurants are located just next to the beach, only 30 sec away. If you do not have plan to hang around... More

I would like to recommend the day trips provided by Sharks Bay Umbi Diving Village. We don't SCUBA but went along for a bit of snorkeling and a day out on a boat.

Ok, I'll start with the positive points. The staff, whether the hotel or diving center, are extremely nice and helpful and really really kind. I felt very welcomed and all my enquiries were answered sufficiently. The beach and view is all it's hyped to be: very beautiful and just breathtaking. whether you are diving or snorkeling you'll definitely be amazed... More

Don`t be fooled by their laid back attitude. This is a very professional outfit where safety is paramount. The guides and instructors are knowledgeable and eager to make your dives memorable. There is a very good house reef at the end of their own jetty. The boat was spacious with plenty of room to stretch out between dives either in... More
