First time Glamping and would do it immediately again. Breezy, clean and quite spacious tents with a nice shower/bath/toilet area adjourning. Cedric, Julien and the team are very helpful, friendly and relaxed. Flexible, tasty and local breakfast, lunch and dinner with a good coffeemachine and Nutella Crepe. Daily boat service to Il der Cerve and Kajaking to the waterfalls are...

I stayed with my family for 5 nights there, we wanted to quit as quickly as possible: - too loud, street is very close, dogs are barking all night, and muslim prayers start at 04.30 in the morning... - besides many moskito bites we had 2 rats (one big and one rather small one) in our tent, impossible to continue...

Dear Reto, It is quite unfortunate that you did not feel comfortable at Otentic. Based on your comments, it seems that you were looking for 5 stars service / accommodation & comfort. Otentic does not have the pretentions to offer such service. We are a place where people meet in simplicity, conviviality and without prentention. Honesty, respect & trust are...

far from the busy city, we spent a fantastic weekend at Otentic Tent, where we felt reconnected to simplicity and nature. The tent is very well accommodated and comfortable and the personnel always helpful with a smile. We were with family and the kids surprisingly enjoyed the stay far from their PS and TV. I would fervently recommend it to...

This was my second trip to Otentic and as with the first time, it didn't disappoint. It's a truly calming place, away from the hustle and bustle of humanity. There is a feeling of conviviality in the common areas by the pool - you can tell that this place expects the best out of everyone as it has an honesty...

My stay at Otentic was too short, I could have stayed. Julian has truly done a beautiful and unique thing here. The tents are sturdy, safari type, set up onto a deck that raises you off the ground, in some areas high enough for a hammock to swing underneath as the tents are on a downslope. We were met by...

Great experience, i the heart of nature. We chose the tents that are newly built on the mountain. It was breath taking. Cedric and Dominique who hosted us and stayed with us was exceptional, they made us feel as if we were home. I really recommend a few days if you visit Mauritius.

Had a fantastic time, yet too short, in this new setup in the mountains overlooking the stunning lagoon. Place is remote although close to the sea. Welcome is warm and ambiance is relaxed: really felt at home, or even better I would say. Tents very comfortable with a very special atmosphere. Had a pleasant and quite sportive walk in the...

We visited this eco experience last year, and have returned for a second time. L'Otentic gives you a completely different perspective to visiting Mauritius, especially with such authentic Mauritian food. The tents are spacious and cool with so much ventilation, plus the bathroom facilities are more than adequate. Everything is so well thought out, the beds clean and comfortable, and...

Otentic provides you with an unusual, enjoyable camping experience. The authentic Mauritian food is delicious and plentiful and the hospitality second to none. Julien is always available to happily answer your queries and provide new and enjoyable experiences such as a wonderful sail out to a beautiful island. The morning excursion is delightful and thoroughly recommended. Spontaneously a dark walk...

We were staying in a very comfortable and smart apartment with friends. They asked us if we had ever Glamped! We said no but we would be up for it if that is what they had planned for us. The day dawned and we drove to Otentic; my first impression was Wow and that feeling remained with me for the...
