Rhumerie de Chamarel

Rum Distillery

Perched 300 meters above the coast of South West Mauritius, the Rhumerie de Chamarel lies in a fertile valley influenced by its own micro-climate. A truly unique tourist attraction, it encompasses a distillery and an agricultural plantation on an eco-friendly estate.

One of the distillery’s strong points is that it was designed to provide a holistic tourism experience to guests. Mauritian architect Maurice Giraud has created a building that blends harmoniously with the spectacular surroundings. Wood, natural stone and water provide a sense of communion with nature, turning the distillery into one of the most beautiful factories in the world. Another strong point of the distillery is that it was created to produce the finest rum.

Experienced guides will take you behind the scenes to provide a thorough explanation of the rum making process while you visit the distillery.


Open for lunch and on request for exclusive dinners, L’Alchimiste is an upscale restaurant which seats 80. L’Alchimiste specializes in a unique cuisine, prepared with local products sourced from the estate itself. A typical menu might include exotic delicacies such as palm heart or dishes featuring deer and wild pig, enhanced with fine wines imported from France and the main continents.
