Now I love the simplicity of this Hotel/Diving center, i have been there lots of times and i just cant think any i should stop going there. I always choose the huts directly in front of the beach, for easier access, although the huts needs some serious renovation, specially the AC on a hot summer day. There is a jetty...

I've spent one week in the Umbi diving village together with two friends. We shared one room together and the space was completely sufficient, there was AC and the view from the room was really wonderful. The bathroom is like the bedroom: simple, but there's everything you need. And it's clean. The only thing to consider are maybe the long...

Once again I have had a fabulous holiday here. Food and diving were sublime and other divers experienced the 'come as a guest, leave as a friend' philosophy. Nothing was too much trouble, and I was very well looked after.

Thank you for taking the time to write this review of your stay and diving with us. We have been having problems with our Wi-Fi connections recently, partly due to the big conferences that are happening in Sharm at the moment, and we are looking into ways to improve it.. Hopefully we will see you again sometime in the future...

Is a Hotel good if you are going to dive. If not is fare away the center and commercial areas but in the Hotel you can ask for the taxi service and is good and you have a 15 minutos tryp to the commercial areas.

Thanks for taking the time to write this review. You are correct - we are about 15 minutes by taxi from Naama Bay (Soho Square is only a couple of minutes away though) but Sharks Bay Umbi itself is a laid back and peaceful place - perfect for people who want to chill out on the beach.
