Amanjena



In Palmeraie, Morocco, Amanjena is the luxury hotel and resort to satiate your needs better. Built in 2000 as part of the Aman Resorts group, it is one of the most exclusive hotels. Moreover, it is the first Aman Resorts branch in Africa.

Overview

Amanjena coins its name from Sanskrit and Arabic: Aman, meaning "peace," and Jena, meaning "paradise." It lives up to that name as its environment very much exudes a peaceful zen and nothing less.

Sitting south of Palmeraie, on the way to Ouarzazate, Amanjena seems like an ancient palace away from the bustling capital of Marrakech. Another plus of this luxury resort is the Amelkis golf course adjoining it. The hotel also provides a complimentary car service. As a result, you're free to explore the other surrounding golf courses. In addition, Royal and Al Maaden are just a 5-minute ride away.

Architect of Amanjena, Ed Tuttle, gets inspiration from the now ruined el Badi and uses pure Moorish designs in this palatial space. In addition, he incorporates pise, a type of earth structure similar to the ones in nearby Berber village homes. Besides, the building has cedar, stone, a pale peach, and pink, honey, and sage green colors.

Scenery

Pause a bit when you stroll along the stone path on either side with date palm trees and small, neatly trimmed hedges. You won't believe the view. Just stepping in through the massive door is simply awe-inspiring.

The lobby comprises winding arches and soaring pink chiseled columns. Also, there are marble jade-colored fountains with petals and floors adorned with Moroccan tiles. A jade basin sits in the central courtyard under the clear sky while curtains float in the warm desert breeze.

Shaded walkways lead to the vast outdoor heated swimming pool with hibiscus bushes and flowing water channels. Immaculate private gardens, home to exotic palms and olive trees, perch at the corner of the reflective pools, beckoning visitors to revel in its enchanting view.

The most iconic highlight, though, is the magical tent. Lit around it are 1,001-night candles that glow, like its name, create magical scenery. The beauty and serenity surrounding the place are the definitions of pure bliss.

Rooms and Suites

Amanjena offers 32 guest Pavilions and seven houses (or Maisons), each having a similar yet unique minimalist design. Akin to the Byzantine temples and Moorish townhouses, the rooms have a high dome-like ceiling, and a king-size bed squats beneath it. The vast expanse of the rooms is adorned with Berber carpets, lanterns, and cedar-wood furnishings. An open fireplace also warms the area, reflecting and casting the rooms in a fiery glow.

Each pavilion has its private courtyard and pillared gazebo. Only eight of the Pavilions Piscine have their patio, garden oasis, and private pools, while six Maisons overlook the main pool. These unique suites offer separate living rooms, second bedrooms, and exclusive butler service.

Enter through cedar doors into a sage green marble bathroom with peach walls. There's a touch of almost everything in here. The vanity, dressing area, sunbeds, sun hats, and even Amanjena Havaianas. Room service is available 24 hours.

Amanjena Dining

Amanjena has two restaurants under its roof. Firstly, the Moroccan restaurant is a majestic open space with live music. Ample seating areas and honey-colored columns encase the dining area. This restaurant features Italian and Moroccan dishes and offers free drinks, cocktails, and wine. Besides, who can you say no to a classic cocktail?

The second restaurant, Nama, serves delightful Japanese cuisines in authentic Japanese style. There's also a private Caidal tent dining for guests who'd love to eat and dine in seclusion.

Then there's the Pool Terrace and Bar, where light snacks, meals, tea, and drinks are served. Guests enjoy this light dining with a view of the vast outdoor pool, which couldn't be any more perfect than it already is.

Wellness & Spa Experiences

Treat yourself to a day at the spa at Amanjena. Their spa offers the best Morrocan care and treatments. It has a steam room, a great sauna, a traditional Moroccan hammam, and separate male and female changing rooms with a hot tub.

The professional hands of the friendly, reliable staff will pamper your skin with massages and body scrubs using natural products from the hotel's skincare brand. A special reflexology session is also held at the spa.

Spa treatments at Amanjena are considered among the best in the city of Marrakech, as they should. Your sessions at this royal hotel's spa will have you feeling like a newborn baby — young and healthy. There's also a fully equipped indoor gym at the guest's disposal.

Activities

Guests can head to the two-story library with a fireplace for light or heavy reading. Two floodlit tennis courts are ready for tennis fanatics anytime you feel out of the racquet and balls. DVDs, magazines, chess, and board games are available for guests who want to pass the time. There's also a large boutique where you can find local crafts and artifacts for personal purchase or take home as a souvenir for loved ones.

For a more outdoor experience, the outdoor swimming pool and a separate children's pool are available for a dip, with cozy daybeds lined up beside them so guests can soak up some sun while sipping a drink or reading. The adjoining golf courses give golfers a space to brush up their skills or play for fun.

Also, because Amanjena sits at the edge of Marrakech, guests can go sightseeing in Medina's gardens, palaces, and historical buildings. Finally, the ones who enjoy a more active lifestyle can go hiking and biking in the High Atlas Mountains.

Takeaway

If you want the ideal spot to savor the tropical sun or explore the bustling souks of the medinaMedinajena will give you just that. A peaceful paradise in North Africa is the summary of it all. Among all Aman Resorts worldwide, this one is a big must-visit for everyone wanting a piece of the luxe life in a dreamy desert land.
