The best representation of eco-conscious accommodation in Mauritius. Otentic’s infrastructure is 100% moveable if needed be and their furniture is mostly sourced from up-cycled woods like old doors, pallets and potato boxes. Further from what the eye can see, their well-installed tents are located in the most authentic coast of Mauritius (the East), surrounded by mountains you can hike and sitting at a river banks. Staying at Otentic may be the most chilled-out way to enjoy your island life: disconnecting from the noise of daily life and reconnecting with nature; swimming in natural pools, utilizing the energy of sun and fueling with healthy vegetarian meals from the garden.
Every tent has capacity for 5 people (1 double bed + 3 individual beds), the ideal place for groups of friends, families with kids over 6 years old and adventurer couples.

Staying with our partnered Guest Houses is like staying at yours, but probably closer from the beach and from nature adventures in the Black River Gorges.
Do you remember that quote? When you buy from small businesses you are not helping a CEO buy a third vacation home… You’re helping a little girl get dance lessons, a little boy buy his favorite jersey, a mom or dad put food on the table.
Our Boutique Guest Houses take you to discover the hearts of dynamic villages, where traditions mandate to drink home-made macerated rum and take bicycle rides through the neighboring, breezy coastal roads.
Welcome to budget travel in style.
Surf your options.
There is more to our honeymoon brochure! Mountain lovers are welcome for less-humid, cooler days in forestry lodges, closer to rivers, cascades and an array of ecotourism activities you should not miss when in Mauritius.
Our partnered eco-lodges on the East of the island are gracefully surrounded by nature. Established in elevated, family-size eco-tents or in lodges built with the rocks from a former kiln, they distinguish themselves for using and respecting the resources of the area to sustain their daily operations; solar energy, fresh markets, river excursions and concerts from local artists to name a few.
