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

In search of sun I found Sharks Bay in Sharm. I had the best time here. I meet great people, and the staff was awesome! I went diving two days in a row and wanted to stay forever. I had great excursions options. I highly recommend the quad bike to experience the sun rise. Amazing and very well worth the... More

This was an impulse get away and we were just looking for sun and a rest from house renovations. However..... Umbi diving village is amazing, set on a hillside (so quite a few steps) with fabulous views from the rooms. The village looks very traditional and the rooms look individual (not the usual hotel block) with a lovely uncluttered feel.... More

The total experience overall was fantastic as this was my first trip abroad all the staff were friendly and supportive. The one downside was the accommodation we stayed in, it was as stated which was a beach cabin but as i had no control as to the accommodation i stayed in this is hardly the fault of the diving village....

Had a brilliant time here learning to dive (open water) and getting an advanced open water qualification. Part of a large group visit, but our dive groups were a good size (3-4 for open water, 1-4 for advanced) to get good quality lessons. Dive sites at the bay and nearby were fantastic, and rates were generally very reasonable. Food (buffet... More

Complimentary taxi from airport to hotel was on time. Check-in efficient and receptionist very friendly and i was shown straight to my view hut on the top floor. These are suitable for people on a budget or travellers who don't mind shared bathrooms. If this is not for you then choose one of the other types of accommodation Umbi Diving... More

Thanks for taking the time to review us! As for breakfast.....not sure what happened but every day there is a mix of fruit, cereal, yogurt, breads etc as well as a hot selection which changes.
