About The Hotel

Amanjena (peaceful paradise) is located just outside the ancient city of Marrakech. Set within an oasis of palms and olive trees, Moorish heritage is reflected throughout the resort, including the Morocco luxury pavilions that radiate out from an ancient bassin, echoing the style of a sultan’s palace. Families are well-catered for at Amanjena, with spacious two-bedroomed accommodation and a range of facilities for children, who will be enchanted by the sights, sounds and smells of the medina. There is also a variety of guided excursions on foot, bicycle or private car into the the souk and squares, palaces, gardens and craft shops of ancient Marrakech.

The 33-metre heated outdoor swimming pool is lined with chaise lounges and umbrellas, framed by hibiscus. The pool area features a pisé-style arch over a wide wall fountain and a separate shallow pool, perfect for kids. The spa has two Turkish-style hammams and a whirlpool which opens onto a fountain courtyard. Spa treatments ranging from traditional Moroccan gommage to a selection of massages can be enjoyed. There are also two clay tennis courts and Mountain bikes are available for exploring the paved pathways that lead from Amanjena through the surrounding olive groves. There is also a well-stocked library with kids DVDs.

Rooms and suites are divided into Pavilions and Maisons and are centered around the ancient irrigation pool which lies at the heart of the property. The Pavilions are dome-shaped and with walls finished in traditional Moroccan Tadlekt and come complete with a king-size bed and a wood-burning fireplace as well as a daybed and a desk finished in Moroccan leather and green marble bathrooms with columned baths. The Maisons are ideal for families, with two bedrooms and a spacious living area split over two floors, some with garden courtyard and a butler’s pantry and all with private heated swimming pool.

The Restaurant specialises in authentic Moroccan and Mediterranean cuisine and during the summer months, dinner seating is moved outdoors. The Thai Restaurant, next to the swimming pool, is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner and the Pool Terrace is open for breakfast and lunch, overlooking the pool and adjacent golf course. Guests can also enjoy private dining in their Pavilion or Maison and intimate dinners accompanied by local music can be organised in the Caidal Tent, a traditional and romantic venue situated in an olive grove. Featuring clusters of cotton-sabra armchairs, The Bar is ideal for casual dining, pre-dinner aperitifs and post-dinner nightcaps. All of the restaurants offer separate kids menus on request.
