Kermi is the manager and the diver of Ankermi and he is a very enthousiasm person. The hotel has 5 confortable bungalows with sea view. Flores... More

A quiet and peaceful place on the north coast. The owner is friendly and helpful and the food was delicious and also healthy (which is not trivial outside of Labuan Bajo). Staff were a bit impatient at times, but understandable in this area. I didn't dive but still, it is a very nice getaway spot in a beautiful part of... More

Was suppose to stay for a week, but had to leave due to an ear infection. Claudia, the delightful hostess and her team run a great little resort with comfortable huts with lofts, a well run dive base, and a great restaurant with great local food. This place is highly recommended.

We stayed off season so the dive school was closed! Unlucky! Clean bungalows - no ac so sea breeze is essential!!!! Rooms are very basic. Great food and very accomodTing staff despite language barriers. We arranged a boat trip to nearby island pulau patanbatang which was awesome. Ankermi itself is located on a bay with lots of rocks infront. Walk... More

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... More

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... More

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.
