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... More

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,... More

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,... More

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... More

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... More

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... More

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 ,... More

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.... More
