Travellers' Choice 2018 Winner
Unique in the area, Sharks Bay Umbi Diving Village is a friendly, relaxing place that still maintains the feel of how Sharm used to be before the arrival of large scale tourism. The Diving Village has a well-equipped dive centre, its own private jetty and a fleet of five boats. There is also a seafood restaurant, beach bar and a full range of water sports. The accommodation ranges from budget View Huts and Beach Cabins to the individually styled Bedouin Village

The rooms are very basic and very tired a refurb is badly needed. The location is beautiful with only a few steps to the beach. As it is built on a hill there area lot of steps so not suitable for disabled or elderly.

Thanks for the comments - we are hoping to start refurbishing our rooms soon. And yes, the Bedouin Village rooms are not suitable for the physically disabled but our simple Beach Cabins would be fine for most people.

Hi, i am dying to go back to Sharm and Umbi but cannot get any info on how i can fly from London have you any suggestions i'm guessing fly to Cairo or maybe fly to Europe and change? Many thanks.
Hello, we suggest you to fly to Europe and then to Egypt; check flights with Meridiana (from Italy),TUI fly (from Belgium);at the moment they offer direct flights to Sharm at good prices.Of course still valid Egyptair (but via Cairo) and Turkish Airlines or Pegasus (but via Istanbul).Hope to see you soon in Sharks Bay Umbi!
