CLOSED on February 21, 2014.  New venue “ANIKi WoW!” to be opened in June 2014.

ANIKi established a reputation as one of the finest gay saunas in Asia, featuring world-class facilities including two jacuzzis, a cool pool, steam room, dry sauna, low-lit shower area, gym, café bar and movie theatre.

There is free WiFi and a number of computers available for guest use.  Other features include an extensive dark room and 28 luxury private rooms (suites) that can be rented for 2-hour periods or up to 12 hours overnight.

ANIKi is popular most week nights from 6pm onwards and very busy at the weekend (luckily, there are around 400 lockers).  Customers tend to be a younger, fit Asian crowd.

  2. Shifting in June 2014

    “Aniki will be shifting to a new venue in June. Was there in mid-Jan and though I agree that the facilities have deteriorated, the guys were still good. They’re undergoing a lawsuit with the landlord so that resulted in the lack of hot water for the tubs and showers. Let’s just hope for better facilities and guys at their new place come June.”

  4. Gone downhill… FAST!

    “I wrote a review on Aug. 22 and went back in early January. Aniki has deteriorated badly in those few months. Not only has the entrance changed, but so much needs fixing. All three hot pools/jacuzzis were empty and out of order. Most of the showers don’t work and the ones that don’t have hot water. Until everything is fixed, Aniki needs to bring their entrance fees down.

    Speaking of money grabs, skip the Cool Party on the first Saturday of every month. Is there supposed to be a live DJ? The music is no better than getting streaming dance music off of Pandora. And who goes to Aniki for the “light show”? Aniki seriously needs to dump this theme night for something more sexual. 800TWD is too much for crappy music and lights.”

  5. Definitely not the best in Asia

    “First, after changing the entrance, they need to post directions in English too at the old address. Not all of us can read Chinese. They really need to fix the showers as many don’t work and very often, there is no hot water.
    The jacuzzi didn’t work several times I was there, they never bother to fix it.”

  6. worst experienced I have ever had

    “1) Rude & unfriendly front desk receptionists 2) not a very clean – many broken shower heads 3) too many smokers in the hallway 4) no restaurant, no bar, no cafe. Your employees must be trained to be friendly and polite to all people! As you should know, those people pay you all the bills!”

  7. Very disappointing

    “To describe as one of best in Asia is a joke. No cafe. No restauant. No comfortable seating area. No swimming pool. No outside seating. Rubbish gym with 2 broken workstations.”

  9. One of the best

    “The best in Asia? Babylon in Bangkok, Hokuokan in Osaka and 24 Kaikan in Tokyo may have better claims for that title but Aniki won’t disappoint. Clean and well-equipped facilities with an active darkroom and lots of private cabins, You can probably spend a few days here without having to exit! If fit young Asians are your thing, you’ll find them here.”

  12. “Very nice facilities and plenty of eye-candy if you’re into Asians (not many non-Asians there). However, it’s starting to show signs of wear and tear (especially the wallpaper). The owners need to invest more in maintenance.”
