This is a specialty dive resort in Maumere, a town in Flores, Indonesia that is a bit off the beaten track. The staff are kind, especially the co-owner Claudia, who may not be there all the time as she lives in Bali during the school year. The facilities are pretty good for this area, no hot showers, but clean and...

We stayed at Lillypond-view bungalow with AC and verandah facing to the beautiful maumere bay. The room is small, far from luxury but adequate - though I expect they can provide thicker blanket and pillow for more comfortable sleep. The main reason our visit was to enjoy the underwater of maumere bay and particularly the muck diving at their house...

We stayed in a nice bungalow on the beach. It was clean and comfortable and beautiful garden. The place is kept clean everyday: ground and cabin. But on the other side the staff is somewhat indifferent. After two nights the menu was very limited because of the lack of some essential ingredients (fe chicken). A few times we went elsewhere...

Great wreck dive!! The visibility was not at its best but still it was great. End of our dive we went muck diving, so that was nice also. Kermi, our dive master, was nice and professional. Later on we went snorkelling to other places. Colourful colars and little fishes.

Stayed here for 3 nights, gorgeous view, bungalow overlookin the ocean, a dock and chill out area where you can view the sunset. Really peaceful and calm. Food good. Organised a snorkeling trip which was great! Staff friendly. My bed was so comfortable with a clean mosquito net that fitted perfectly all the way around. My only negative is that...

We stayed at the beginning of August for 7 nights - and we loved it! The bungalows are quiet basic and not very big, but very clean and with a great view. We very much liked to relax on the upper floor after diving. The bungalows, gardens and the whole surrounding are well maintained and beautiful. The staff is cute,...

In general most reviews mirror what we experienced, too: ankermi is a place, which is hard to get to, but even harder to leave. The staff is really really cute, the bungalows basic but very clean and nicely made. The garden and the surroundings are just breathtaking. The food is very tasty and among the best we had in indonesia,...

“If you feel that around EUR20/$25 a night is above your budget, you can also try the place next door Lena House run by Pak Didakus and his wife. It reminds me of the old Ankermi sometimes.”
