Amanjena (peaceful paradise) is the first Aman resort on the African continent and is located just outside the ancient city of Marrakech. 

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 resort’s 32 air-conditioned Pavilions lie beneath their own graceful stuc Venetien 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. Ouarzazate 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. The Pavilions Bassin enjoy sweeping views over the central irrigation pool whilst the Pavilions Piscine (pool pavilions) have their own 25-square metre heated pools and extended private gardens. Courtyards feature large lounging couches flanked by black lanterns, as well as zellij fountains recessed into the terracotta-tiled floors. Chaise longues and Maillechort candle lanterns lend Moroccan ambience. For families or couples travelling together, the courtyard's facing cedar doors can be opened to the adjacent Pavilion. All Pavilions enjoy a pillared minzah (gazebo).

Maisons
Amanjena’s six two-storey, two-bedroom Maisons rise seven metres from floor to ceiling in a variation of the Moroccan townhouse. The living area, located on the ground floor, features an arc-cut fireplace, a zellij wall fountain and a small bathroom. The self-contained guest bedroom, with its queen-size bed, bathroom with separate shower and toilet, dressing area and separate courtyard entrance, is also located on this floor. The master suite upstairs features a king-size bed and divan, while the ensuite bathroom is defined by marble columns, a domed shower, a pillared green marble bathtub and separate toilet. Each Maison’s courtyard enjoys its own private heated swimming pool, most with views directly over the bassin. Two of the six Maisons come with garden courtyards. These Maisons Jardin  feature a fireplace, a large minzah, a butler’s pantry and a shade tree.

Al-hamra maison
The largest accommodation unit is the  Al-Hamra Maison. This graceful abode features an extensive main pavilion with a large indoor living and dining area, an open fireplace and private butler service. Two bedrooms are linked by an open passageway to the shared garden which offers two  minzahs  for dining and lounging as well as a private 36-square metre heated pool.

The Lawrence of Morocco map displays the locations of the destinations and accommodation that we have selected and visited; for each item, hovering over or clicking the marker will display a short summary and photo of that place or hotel, and hotel pricing. Follow the links in the info box to the full page listing which has much more information.

Note that the online map offers both a satellite view (click satellite in the top right) and, for some locations, a street level view (Drag the person in the top left onto the map). These let you explore the country; and when you wish to explore in person, or if you have any questions about the places you see, give our staff a call, or request a quote. Our staff regularly visit the places and accommodation that we feature.

When you book a holiday with us we will provide full driving instructions for reaching your accommodation, where necessary; these can be used by yourself, or you could enjoy the luxury of a driver. Alternatively we will arrange private (car rather than coach) transfers for you; helicopter transfers are also possible for some destinations.
