Amanjena, the first Aman Resort on the African continent, means “peaceful paradise,” (aman is Sanskrit for “peaceful,” while jena means “paradise” in Arabic). This stunning, serene hotel is set out around the central feature of the ancient bassin (irrigation pool) which lies at the heart of the property.
Rooms at Amanjena are divided between 32 pavilions and seven, two-storey maisons and are all expansive and decadent in design with high ceilings, huge amounts of space and elegant Moroccan-inspired decor. The pavilions have domed living areas, open fireplaces and private courtyard with gazebos, sofas and dining areas.
Amanjena's dining options are extensive, and delectable cuisine can be enjoyed at either the Japanese Restaurant or the main restaurant which specialises in Mediterranean and Moroccan fare. The Pool Terrace and the bar are also other relaxed dining options or opt for a private meal in your Pavilion. For extra romance you could choose to eat in a romantic Caidal tent in the olive grove, accompanied by traditional music.
When not enjoying the hammam, spa, swimming pool and tranquillity within the hotel, the vibrant city of Marrakech with its souks, gardens and historic buildings are easily accessible and the concierge at the hotel will be happy to arrange private day tours with an English-speaking guide at your request.
