Sharks Bay Umbi Village is a great value hotel in Sharks Bay. It is a good choice for those who dont want the resort type holiday and who dont want to be bothered by animation teams! Its a real gem and one of the few places in Sharm where you can meet and talk to South Sinai Bedouins.
This hotel is probably the only locally owned hotel in Sharm El Sheikh and offers three types of accommodation for all budgets. I stayed in a beach cabin which was well equipped, clean and functional. The breakfast at the hotel is excellent and the restaurant is great value for lunch and dinner with an italian type menu.
Whilst the hotel is very popular with divers, it is also great for snorkelers and for simply relaxing. It is all fairly hassle free which makes it a good choice for singles also. All in all a good place to stay, good value and about the only place in Sharm El Sheikh where you can really support the local community of the region.
The only thing to note is that their is no swimming pool at the hotel but its not a problem the sea is right in front of you and you have easy access via a pontoon.
