Amanjena in Marrakech, Morocco
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. The resort’s indulgent tranquility is complemented by easy access to the medina and Morocco’s mesmerising landscape. A varied landscape of rugged snow-capped mountains, parched desert dunes and winding coastline, Morocco has some of North Africa’s most diverse geography, all accessible from Amanjena.
Set beneath stuc venitien domes with arched entrances, vaulted ceilings and garden courtyards, Amanjena’s Pavilions and Maisons are cool, elegant dwellings with Berber carpets scattered over zellij-tiled floors. The sound of running water in fountains soothes while chaise longues and candle lanterns lend classic Moroccan ambience. Our dining facilities are open to guests and non-residents. Both restaurants at Amanjena are decorated with traditional Moroccan elements, from the central, scalloped onyx fountain in the main Restaurant to the coral-hued tadelakt 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. Amanjena’s spa is home to two hammams complemented by showers, washrooms and a glassed-in whirlpool that opens onto a relaxation courtyard with a bubbling fountain.

Reviews for Amanjena
I have always dreamed of visiting Morocco...my experience at Amanjena far exceeded my dreams!!! The entire experience was by far the most luxurious yet not pretentious experience I have ever had. I was greeted at the airport by a driver and taken to the property where I was greeted by the staff as if I were a family member...warm and loving. A glass of red wine was offered to me at my arrival as I settled in at the bar by the fireplace which became my second home throughout the trip. The staff became first name friends and the service is impeccable. When I went to my villa I could not believe where I would be living for the next week...romantic ambiance including a fireplace in front of your bed, a private pool, his and her closets, sinks and vaulted domed ceilings. The hotel arranged anything and everything we could imagine from a traditional Berber Family experience enjoying cuisine and culture in the Atlas Mountains to a informative guide in the famous Souks that will show you places that the average tourist would not have the opportunity of capturing. The New Years celebration was beyond belief...magical to say the least. An outstanding presentation of over 3,000 candles in the garden which words can not convey the execution in this production. Musicians, dancers...pure opulence!!! I can not express how much this holiday has moved me and it is due to the service...management, directors, spa, waiters...every single person showed such humble grace. I am so thankful for this experience and I highly recommend anyone who enjoys the finest things in life with effortless precision to visit Amanjena Marrakech...Paradise!!!

I cant say enough about the staff and management at Amanjena. They put on a New Year's celebration that was over the top. Dancers, a singer, local music, and a light show of the grounds that was amazing. The dinner was started with a truffled soup, then lobster salad, and then a perfect Beef wellington. Ask for a special request at Amanjena and they will find a way to make it happen. Thanks Peter and staff!

Physically Amanjena didn't disappoint , stunning from dawn to dusk , and most stunning at dawn and dusk . What made it really special was the people. Led by GM Nicholas , the team at Amanjena never failed to please even jaded travellers like us. NIcholas is always seen around the property , talking to guests in his gentle and sincere ways; and not just at the obligatory Aman welcome , only to disappear and return at departure like some Aman GMs tend to do. One could really feel his sincerity. The guest relations looking after us , My Omar was simply amazing . He planned out a very enjoyable itinerary for us, booked restaurants, a Golf session and arranged taxis. He left nothing unturned to make the stay enjoyable and hassle free . When he found out from a colleague that we purchased at Berber carpet in the Medina, he volunteered even without us asking , to be our point of contact for the shipping and to make sure the carpet arrive in Singapore as promised by the shop. Of course we had the team the Japanese restaurant led by the manager , a gentleman from Amanikhas . The wait staff was fantastic , always so welcoming and friendly and they more than made up for the lack lustre Japanese food( there has to at least 1 negative point right to be unbiased?) It was with a sad heart when we had to leave for Barcelona.

What can I say! No two Amans are the same. This is unique in its own way. It is peaceful like all Amans. You hardly see the guest because of the space. You would think that the occupancy rate is low but itâ€™s just the way the place was designed.

It's definitely the most beautiful hotel I have ever stayed in. We stayed for 4 nights during thanksgiving and we wish we could stay longer. Although the rate is pricey but definitely worth every penny. When we first arrived, it was a "wow" moment for us even after a 8 hours long flight. and the staff are helpful and attentive. The hotel is situated outside of all the tourist sties and Amanjena offers town cars to go for day trip to Medina and other attraction sites, but we figure we will choose the local yellow cab for a cheaper price. Omar and Houda helped us great deal during our stay since me and my husband did not speak Arabic or French, they helped us to negotiate with local yellow cab drivers and made sure that we got a good deal and to arrive the hotel safe everyday. The breakfast taste just like home if you are craving for some non-local meals. And the restaurants offers Japanese and Local Moroccan food. Although we traveled during thanksgiving and we were told the rooms are pretty much occupied in the whole resort, we barely see other guests due to the design and layout of the whole place. Anyway, after each day's travel and sightseeing, going back to Amenjena was like going back home, nice and warm. We will definitely coming back with our friends and family.
