4/10 Fair

overall average
The tent was good, the lunch and dinner were good but the breakfast was poor. We were disappointed with the bed sheets that were not clean, and we were in bad luck with electricity issue it was switching off everyday at 6 am and we should walk all the way down to find someone to fix it, hope they are fixed now. The staff wre very friendly.

Fantastic Experience
We only stayed for a couple of nights (wishing now we had booked one or two more) and found otentic to be brilliant. Very different to the other types of hotels etc in Mauritius but way better in many areas. It's a small set up of around 12 tents which means there is a nice community type feel as pretty much everyone comes down to eat for dinner and some for lunch as well. The tents themselves were brilliant and felt very 'glamping style' with all amenities and a nice outside shower (nice hot water!). Breakfast was included and was very nice. Lunch and Dinner were paid but at only £10 per person were an absolute bargain. We stayed at a few other hotels during this trip, all of which charged well over tripple what otentic did and the food at the otentic was way way better. The main 'camp' area was nice especially at night and was good for hanging around. You can also take the kayaks out for free which was great fun and we also went on the boat trip to the Isle Aux Cerfs which again was free and was a lovely place to spend a couple of hours. There are a few games etc such as badminton and darts as well as board games etc so the camp was just as suitable for families as it was for couples etc. Overall and excellent and different place to stay which i could recommend highly enough.

Superb weekend

8/10 Very good

A Relaxing Alternative
My stay turned out better than staying at a normal hotel. Tents were great with proper beds (very comfortable). The food was great, it turns out a bit expensive if you stay for a few days and have to eat there everyday, as there are not restaurants or shops walking distance. The location is great if you want to see the mountains, river and waterfall. If you are looking for a beach holiday not the best place, but they do have a boat that takes you to one of the nicest beaches in Mauritius. Staff and owner were very friendly and happy to help.

We enjoyed staying at Otentic. The tents are very nice and the beds are comfortable. The staff are very friendly, and since it's a small resort you get to know them and the other visitors. This enhances the experience. The food served is simple and very good. Our favorite was grilled sea bass which was served at dinner. The honor bar is also a nice feature. Our kids (5,7) loved the experience. They would play outside all day and sleep hard at night. Makes for easy parenting. We'd love to be back.

Etwas ganz Besonderes
„ Glamping „ trifft es wohl ganz gut. Nicht für Jedermann , aber wer abseits des Mainstreams Urlaub machen möchte, Naturverbunden ist, tolle Küche und Geselligkeit mehr schätzt als die steife Atmosphäre in einem 5 Sterne Hotel ... Abenteuerlustig ist... offen und neugierig ist ... Der wird es lieben. So wie wir .

Un'esperienza unica!
Io che amo le avventure e tutto ciò che può essere originale, ho amato questo luogo! Si è dimostrato decisamente al di sopra delle mie aspettative, avendo quell'atmosfera "naturalistica", di condivisione e di relax che ti fanno sentire a tuo agio. Non è hotel normale, dunque non lo consiglierei a chi ha una visione all'antica e abitudinaria diciamo, però è davvero fantastico in ogni dettaglio!

Formidable expérience
Excellente alternative à Maurice, le seul bémol est la présence d'une route assez bruyante à proximité, mais cela ne compte plus une fois qu'on a goûté la cuisine locale! Les tentes sont grandes, possibilité d'avoir toute une famille dans une seule tente.
