L'Exil Lodges, nestled in Nature

L’Exil Lodges is nestled in the unspoilt Combo Forest in the south of Mauritius in the village of Riviere Des Anguilles. Contrary to the usual, filaos, palm and coconut trees, white sand and blue lagoon of a typical Mauritius breakaway, L’Exil Lodge offers to the visitors a quieter and more relaxing break. 

For those nature lovers who enjoys tranquility, quietness, greenery, rambling, waterfalls and forest atmosphere then L’Exil Lodges is definitely the place for you.  When you are at the Lodge you will need to forget your everyday life as it is found in the middle of a forest. 

You will only have WiFi connection in the lounge of the Lodge. Away from technology, social media, and all those other distractions to allow you to disconnect and yet re-connect with nature. It is the best place to have a real break from your busy life with an open view of the endemic forest and scenic view of waterfalls.

L’Exil Lodges - Good to Know

  • As the lodge is situated in the heart of a forest there are a lot of mosquitoes especially during summer, so please bring any repellent.
  • Ask for a room that offers a view to the Leon Falls
  • The access is not appropriate to cars, it is better to take the shuttle up to the mountain if you are in an all terrain vehicle. It is a bumpy ride of approximately 3 KM to the mountain but the view up there and the scenery will blow your mind
