My wife & I visited Rhumerie de Chamarel during our visit of the South. What an awesome experience. The rhumerie was well maintained all around i.e. toilets, grounds etc. The entry fee was Rs350 each & you get a guided tour + a good few rum tasters :) While the rhumerie is not huge it was still an enjoyable experience...

Definitely stop for a visit at this stylish rum factory. You will be taken on a tour of the sugar cane processing, the fermentation vats, and the distillation apparatus. Then you can taste about eight varieties. The shop has all the rum but also great honey varieties and jams. Various sugar varieties also are on offer. Do not hesitate a... More

Stopped here as part of a "Scenic South" tour booked through White Sand Tours. It is a beautiful place and we had a great time tasting different flavoured rums and the kids enjoyed the sugar tasting too! Lunch was provided here and whilst it was OK it wasn't up to the standards we'd been tasting at our hotel all week.... More

We visited Rhumerie de Chamarel on an organised tour of the South West of the island! It was a really nice experience! The tour was very interesting and the tasting even more! Also really neat and clean. The rum is a lot cheaper at the rhumerie then at the airport duty free shops! Enjoy!

Being a tropical island with a history of pirates hiding their treasures...rum is the drink of choice! And good rum it is too! The Rumerie is a very lovely, slick presented, tourist attraction. The process from sugar cane to bottle is on view and the guides are humorous and well informed. Of course the highlight is the tasting at the... More

Wow... really fun time. Had an amazing lunch with very interesting cocktails. Tried all the different types of Rhums and sugars produced. Drank too much and laughed a whole lot. Great experience.

A very good tour with excellent guides and in a beautiful setting. We were very impressed with the trip and the rum tasting was brilliant. We bought some rum to take home too. Worth the money

When enquiring about rum tasting in Mauritius, Rhumerie de Chamarel is the one place everyone recommends.... so we had to go and see for ourselves! Upon arrival we were welcomed and greeted with genuine friendliness. The lady that gave us the tour and tasting was very passionate about the distillery and one can not help but to start loving the... More
