We are based on the east coast of Mauritius in a small village called 'Deux Freres' on the bank of Grand River South East, the longest river of Mauritius. The lodge is ideally located at canoeing distance halfway between the waterfall and the crystal lagoon of ile aux cerfs. At Otentic, we try to give a truly Mauritian experience to our guests. Our friendly staff, who all live nearby the lodge, will make sure that you discover their region, the east coast of Mauritius, probably the most beautiful coast of the island. Simplicity and conviviality are two key values for us. Our objective is to share with our guests the Mauritian way of life, our culinary habits, our diverse communities, traditions and religious beliefs while enhancing the natural environment and improving the livelihood of surrounding communities.

Near thought I would go glamping or to an eco-retreat, but this experience has changed my opinions. Otentic is full self-efficient and eco-friendly, attempting to leave as small an impact on the natural surroundings as possible. Otentic is on a lush jungle like plot right on the Grande Riviere South East river. All the tents are shaded and tucked away under or near amazing palm trees. The accommodations are sparse yet comfortable and every tent has its own private bathrooms w/ showers. You have the option to raise/ lower the tent flaps to your liking varying the awesome views from within or from the relaxing front deck. Everywhere on the property feels as if you are enjoying you own hiding tropical camp. There are breathe taking views thru the trees down to the water and up to the lush green mountains off in the distance. The staff took care of all our needs, cooks prepared fabulous local cuisine and the honor bar was a hit. Ever trip to Mauritius should include a few days unplugged at Otenic Eco Tent Experience.

This place has tents and Chalets. Both are great fun and comfortable. I went here a few times and each time was better than the last. There is plenty to do here. They have kayaks to use for free. They have a little library overlooking the lagoon. There are also trips to visit other islands close by. The food is good too.

Absolutely fantastic place next to the river, 10 mins by kayak to the GRSE waterfall. Loads of activities. Friendly atmosphere, superb local food, amazing staff. Well worth a visit. Highly recommended.

A few steps out back in time. Everything is like the old Mauritius that is fading away. Glamping in tents on the river banks. Food is good. Beautiful settings, lots of activities, peaceful. No wifi for 2 hrs during dinner time 😉

We arrived at the property a bit late in the evening (please plan to arrive here during day-time, else the drive can get a bit spooky as it is quite deserted). Everything is Eco, so you kind of also carry your own bags ;), which was not a bad thing, if only we had traveled a bit light, but it was alright! The tent was absolutely fantastic, nice outdoor deck, very eco-fitted bathroom/toilet, overall a very memorable experience, and not un-comfortable at all in any sense. The overall feeling was of community-living, trust (you fill out a book/ledger for what you consume), fresh food experiences (the kitchen is open to your suggestions and needs), just chill-out / do what you want (no one pestering you to order something to eat or drink), etc - you get the drift. We stayed 2 nights, but left wanting more.
