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.

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 your own hiding tropical camp.
There are breathtaking 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 Otentic Eco Tent Experience.
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 uncomfortable at all in any sense.
Fantastic food which was really delicious and authentic plus they kindly adapted to our needs (one vegetarian and one vegan). The tent and eco village concept worked really well and the communal area was welcoming and relaxed.
