I will rate this place 5* for the welcoming and friendly staffs (Charleen, Pamela and Virmal) who are always ready to serve with a smile, the atmosphere is very comfy and cosy just like at home.๐Ÿ˜ If you're looking for a place for a break from routine, L'Exil Lodges is the place to be!๐Ÿ˜ You disconnect from the outside world, only to connect with nature!๐Ÿ˜๐ŸŒฟ You can be here with friends, family and as couples also to spend quality time!๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ•Š๐ŸŒฟ The surroundings is so beautiful with breathtaking views from your room itself and all around the lodge.๐ŸŒฟ The Food is mostly Mauritian Cuisine but it's delicious and yumm!๐Ÿ˜ There is a self guided way to a private waterfall, which is a must to go!๐Ÿ˜ Last one, Charleen is the best, her attitude and way of handling our booking and all the special requests we made, always smiling and very friendly personality. She eased our stay there!๐Ÿ˜ I will definitely come again!๐Ÿ˜ P.S: It was my 2nd stay there!๐Ÿ˜…๐ŸŒฟ

We'd initially planned on staying for 2 days and immediately extended the trip on reaching the place. Other than the rocky road that leads to this place, everything else is perfect. It is recommended to use their shuttle service to avoid damages to your car or extra fee from the taxi driver, which is what happened to us. I was communicating with Charleen via email, who was so on the ball and lovely. Unfortunately we couldn't meet as it was Christmas time; however the remaining staff were v cordial. The rooms are lovely and basic (no mini fridge or ac) but honestly we didn't need either. Lโ€™Exil has amazing hiking locations all around and it's a shame to not explore. Other than the famous Cascade Leon, try to hike to the top of the waterfall or hike further down to Cecil Dam or other nearby locations. It's just spectacular... from bamboo forests to eucalyptus forests to wild orchids and monkeys we saw it all. Of course, there are lots and lots of mosquitoes so be prepared. For me, the best part was that I could take my dog on a holiday with us and he had the time of his life seeing things he's never seen before and going on hikes. He's v well trained so my husband and I took him to the restaurant with us as well :) The staff/ chef is on a rotation basis, so the first night the dinner was quite disappointing and the servers at breakfast were clueless. However, the following days were such better food n service. It's a fixed menu, so if you're vegetarian or have any dietary restrictions, let them know. Overall, it's a really beautiful and relaxing place to unwind. Hiking is a must as that's what will make your trip even more special :) Thank you for the memories

An absolutely terrible experience - We booked a 2 night stay with L'Exil, paid a 50% advance as requested, received a booking confirmation. After all this was done, they called to inform us that they could put us up for one night only, and would retain the 50% advance as full payment. We, of course, cancelled our stay and demanded a full refund, which they made. There was no offer of rescheduling, or suggestions of any other kind of amends, for the 'mistake of processing a booking, and a 50% advance payment'. This is by far the most unapologetically unprofessional encounter I have had in the hospitality business.

Hello there.It was indeed a nice time at lexil.Thanks for the hospitality and the nice food.To my opinion there should be some benches or, why not a koisk, somewhere in the middle of the lodges No.1 to 5 where we can sit and chat among families or friends. Also an indication at specific points towards Cascade Leon would be a plus for those who are going there for the 1st time.Otherwise I would encourage others to go there where one can b freed from all routine stressand b away from the routine life.Looking forward for another experience. Thanks again.Cheers.
