Had a Fantastic afternoon here. The lunch was delicious, and great value, after we had a tour and sampled many different rums, some of which were so good we had to buy a new suitcase to take them home!

I do wonder what some peoples expections are...It does what it say's it's a distillery tour in nice surroundings with pretty gardens and rum tastings!!! I don't drink rum so my husband had two samples of everything so he had a great time! Yes I agree the shop is expensive but you don't have to buy anything. If you like... More

Well organized visit, just a little too much sales-oriented and not enough about the touch and feel of the distilleries process... would have loved being more involved and see more of the "secrets" lol Nice overall and great products to bring back! A MUST do around here...

Nice rum tasting experience, I would recommend skipping the expensive tour and just doing the special rum tasting where you get to taste the nice stuff. Otherwise, book lunch and the rum tasting fee is waived.

The rhumerie looks like a tourist trap, and also is. The factory tour was most uninspiring and made one think that rhum is not a very interesting drink (although it is but not here). The trap is that they offer a lot to drink in their tasting so you'd buy a lot... The rhums are really mediocra and the spiced... More

Probably the best rum factory on the island! We avoided paying the hefty Rs375 per adult entrance fee by opting for lunch in the restaurant. The food was amazing for the price you pay and service was top notch. We joined the tour of the facility after that with very good explaination of rum making process. The tour ended with... More

We traveled for close to 2 hours one way to reach this destination but felt disappointed as there's nothing much to do more so we didn't like the rum options offered too unfortunately.We were more irritated as we spent a lot of time just travelling because of this with kids. Better it would have been if we had stayed back... More

We've been there with a group of people, AFTER visiting L'Aventure de Sucre in Pampeluses. What I'm gonna say is mostly for budget travelers, so don't bother if you're not one of us :) Rhumerie is actually a very nice looking place. Best facility I've seen in whole Mauritius (I wasn't staying in nice hotels, that's why). The tour guide... More

We visited as part of the south west tour. No production happening during our visit so only a few minutes talk, we probably waited as long for the tour to start as it took to do the 'tour'. We did enjoy the 9 tastings at the end though (extra cost for the premium rums). The grounds are pretty with big... More
