Overview


There is a place in paradise where peace holds time, where nature and culture know no seams, where comfort and luxury unite in style and where water reflects the blush of clay. This place is Amanjena, Morocco's Moorish rose, a resort secluded in a private lush haven near the pulsating Medina of Marrakech. With the High Atlas Mountains in your sights let Amanjena take your hand and treat you to the wonders of Africa's sun-kissed land.

Amanjena (peaceful paradise) is the first Aman resort on the African continent and is located just outside the ancient city of Marrakech. Set within an oasis of palms and olive trees, Moorish heritage is reflected throughout the pisé-walled resort, including the pavilions that radiate out from an ancient bassin, echoing the style of a sultan's palace. Amanjena offers a variety of guided excursions on foot, bicycle or private car into the medina, the souk and squares, palaces, gardens and craft shops of ancient Marrakech. The High Atlas Mountains claim the Marrakech horizon and the Atlantic coast is just two hours away. The 18-hole Amelkis Championship Golf Course lies immediately alongside Amanjena, with a second course – the Royal Golf Course – just minutes away.



The resort's 32 air-conditioned Pavilions lie beneath their own graceful stuc Venetian domes. The pale peach-coloured walls feature a lustrous tadlekt finish, a treatment originally reserved for waterproofing hammam (steam bath) walls. Under the dome is a king-size bed and a wood-burning fireplace brightens the living area. Other furnishings include a daybed and a desk finished in Moroccan leather, as well as a cherry-wood chair. Quarzazate green marble finishes the bathroom with its stepped and columned bathtub, twin vanities, soaring mirrors, twin dressing areas and separate shower and toilet. Berber carpets are scattered about the zellij-tiled floors. Sliding glass and cedar doors lead to each Pavilion's garden courtyard with views either of the golf course or olive groves.
