Ankermi is beautifully located, is feels like having your own bay. The water in front of the hotel is crystal clear and perfect for swimming, snorkelling and dive training. The bungalows are simple yet comfortable. And the owner (local, married with a Swiss wife) is one of the most warm hearted persons we've met during our trip. He should team...

This is a lovely and relaxing place to stay about a 30min drive east of Maumere. It's great if you just want some downtime to read books and get some sun. The bungalows are well maintained and have a mezzanine inside and also a balcony, so there are plenty of options for chilling out. The restaurant is good, you can...

We stayed here for two nights in April 2013. We had come from Alor and spent the night on a boat, so were looking forward to a comfortable stay. The grounds are lovely, they have their own rice paddies. The room was also lovely. They have two beds, with oneon a mezzanine, so can happily accommodate three people. However, we...

My wife and I stayed at Ankermi in december 2012. Our intention was to stay only a couple of days before travelling on to the Alor Islands but we ended up staying 10 days. Only 5 nice, clean and certainly not expensive bungalows on the (rocky) shore, no frills, but good beds with nets and pleasant attached outdoor shower ,...

The rooms are modest but with a lot of character. It's right on the water and has gorgeous sunsets, delicious food, and nice staff. You need at least 3 days. We only had 2 days and I wasn't able to dive because we arrived later in the day and were not able to arrange for a dive in the morning....

I enjoyed staying in one of the coastal facing bungalows (I wouldnt say beach front, as there were rocks in front of the resort rather than beach.) You can walk along the rickety small jetty to go swimming from there, with lovely views. The bungalows were approx 240,000 rupiah a night including a basic breakfast, which by local Indonesian standards...

This was a return visit five years after I first spent a weekend at Ankermi. I loved it then and it’s even better now. I echo the praise expressed by other reviewers. The (very few) criticisms don’t chime with me. Let’s leave it at that. Just an update on some of the guidebooks. All-in afternoon tea is a thing of...

If you're looking for a place to enjoy your life than you will find it at Ankermi. You will stay there in a lovely cottage (there is a second floor in it and believe me, to lay down there, it's a wonderful place to relax). The cottages are surrounded from a beautiful garden with ponds and other jewels (the flying...

We spent a couple of days in Ankermi Happy Dive Resort during our world trip and we immediately felt like home! The owners Kermi and Claudia created a lovely, cozy place in a very friendly atmosphere. The cottages (most of them with sea view) are very charming and the restaurant serves excellent food. The staff is friendly and attentive. Specially...

“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.”
