Amanjena overview

Amanjena is a top quality resort set in a private enclosure filled with tall palms and aromatic olive trees. It's design and architecture resembles a sultan's palace, and the accommodation is equally lavish. No effort has been spared to create the feeling of luxury, from the carefully tended gardens to the petals placed in the fountains, the polished brass lanterns to the hand-cut tiles. All this is just a short drive from the bustling souks and squares of Marrakech. 
Accommodation is a mix of pavilions and larger maisons, decorated in Moorish style, with tiled floors, Berber rugs, large lanterns, wood burning stoves, and sunken baths. Some pavilions have their own gardens and plunge pools. Each of the 2-storey maisons has 2 en-suite bedrooms and a courtyard and pool. Al-Hmara Maison, with 2 bedrooms, indoor and outdoor living areas, a heated pool and butler service is the ultimate accommodation.  
Elegant lounges provide ample space to socialise and relax, and the pool is perfect for cooling off on a hot day and is pleasantly heated in cooler months. The restaurant, set beneath a sliding skylight, serves tasty Moroccan and tempting Mediterranean dishes, and there's a Thai restaurant offering gently spiced meals, plus a tent for private dining.
Staff can arrange excursions to Marrakech and surrounding areas including walks and picnics in the High Atlas Mountains. At the resort you can enjoy a game of tennis, burn off some calories in the gym, and indulge in your chosen treatment at the spa or enjoy the benefits of a cleansing hammam.
