I had a short stay in Sharm and decided to take the PADI scuba diver course, couldn't have picked a better place. The divemaster was extremely professional, focused on safety, no cuts, not slacks. I felt very safe and learned very much. A great experience. I would recommend this dive school to anybody who want to learn to dive. There... More

Arrived 6 November and did a day on one of the day boats the following day, before we set off on a 4 night mini-safari around to Thistlegorm and Ras Mohamed. The safari was truly awesome, There were only 5 of us on board and Umbi still took us on their large Freedom III dive boat that caters for 22... More

We had a combined holiday of a mini safari and 3 days boat diving and recommend it for those wanting more than daily boat diving but not a full week on a liveaboard. The mini safari was on Freedom 3 which is a lovely vessel with a fantastic crew and I thoroughly recommend it. The day boat diving was on... More

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

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
