Date palms and olive trees dot the grounds of Amanjena, a peaceful oasis outside the ancient city of Marrakech. The resort’s indulgent tranquillity is complemented by easy access to the medina and Morocco’s mesmerising landscape. The ancient city of Marrakech is centred on its 12th-century medina, a red-walled former fortress crisscrossed by narrow lanes. Its attractions extend outward to the golf courses on the city's outskirts and the surrounding villages, where little has changed over centuries. 


Set just outside the city, Amanjena is a short drive from Marrakech Menara Airport. Summers in Marrakech are hot and dry, with occasional rain falling from October through March, winters from November to April have pleasant mild temperatures of 22°C.


32 sunset-hued guest pavilions, each with a wood-burning sunken fire pit for romantic interludes and a terrace with a cozy cushioned seating area. The two-story maisons, all two-bedroom, are like elegant Moroccan townhouses, each with inward-facing windows, a wall fountain and a marble-columned bathroom — there’s even a private swimming pool and garden.


Slip away to the full-service spa with its truly Moroccan hammam and essential-oil massages, soak in a rose-petal bath and sip mint tea. Be sure to explore the numerous souks, with their countless treasures.

Both restaurants at Amanjena are decorated with traditional Moroccan elements, from the central, scalloped onyx fountain in the main Restaurant to the coral-huedtadelakt walls draped with Moroccan leather horse saddles in the poolside eatery. Local ingredients and culinary traditions inform the cuisine, complemented by a range of cocktails served at the airy bar, where smoke-tinted mirrors are joined by old Berber daggers and Arabic swords in scabbards of deer antler, camel bone and olive wood
