“Palace of Peace”

Amanjena sits at the stylish crossroads where the romantic exoticism of Lawrence of Arabia meets the contemporary desires of the modern traveler, and where the need to indulge meets the yearning to be inspired. Perfectly symmetrical grounds give the resort a zen-like peace, while graceful keyhole arches frame the resort architecture wherever you walk, and Mashrabiya lattice screens add the Moorish flair that’s oh so very moreish. Add to that the colonnaded walkways and marble fountains, plus a pervasive ambiance of understated luxury, and you’re in “peaceful paradise”.

Best time to visit : March to May, October to November

  • Can you name another resort whose rooms are equally divine? Maisons have two bedrooms, and if we had to choose, the Pavilion Piscine has a private heated pool
  • A resort boutique stocked with things (everything) you want
  • VIP airport service is worth it, with passports taken to be stamped through customs and fast tracks through the building
  • What are you looking at? Atlas Mountains, the adjacent golf course, or indeed just gazing around the gorgeous gorgeous grounds (yes, so gorgeous we said it twice)?

Amanjena

Inspired by the rose-hued buildings of old Marrakech and its 12th century Menara gardens, palatial Amanjena lies just outside the fabled Red City. Amid shady courtyards with petal-strewn fountains, traditional earth-toned pisé-de-terre walls give way to the central bassin that nourishes the gardens. Radiating from this ornamental irrigation pool are spacious standalone guest pavilions, each with its own garden and gazebo, and many with private pools. Vaulted ceilings and Moorish arches house cool, elegant interiors, with a generosity of space reflecting the Sahara all around.

Private Aman Dinner in the Agafay Desert with Stargazing
Private Aman Dinner in the Agafay Desert with Stargazing

"An immersive evening in a unique setting for inspiring memories in the Agafay magical stone desert, a journey taking guests to the lunar scenery of Agafay, witnessing the sun setting on the majestic Atlas peaks on a camel ride, followed by an exclusive Aman private Berber dinner in a secluded tent under the stars, whilst gazing up at the constellations that were once used for navigation and storytelling."

Visit to L’Arbaa Tighdouine & Lunch in a Berber Family’s Home
"Beginning with a scenic one-hour drive, this journey provides a unique introduction to Morocco, bringing guests to catch a glimpse of rural life, arriving to the small Berber village of L’Arbaa Tighdouine, where time has stood still, followed by a gentle one and a half hour guided walk through the picturesque river gorge and proceeding up the stony mountain slopes towards a traditional mud-walled house, which is perched at the top. Guests are able to experience the warm hospitality, whilst enjoying the panoramic views of the surrounding landscapes from the Berber Family’s humble home where they will prepare a homemade authentic Moroccan couscous."
Majorelle Garden and YSL Museum
Majorelle Garden and YSL Museum
Majorelle Garden and YSL Museum
"Inside a striking and intriguing building designed by French architectural firm, Studio KO, the Yves Saint Laurent museum is entirely devoted to the work of the legendary fashion designer, Yves Saint Laurent. The guests’ visit begins with a dive into the dark corridor illuminated by spotlights where a modest but carefully curated selection of garments is modelled by mannequins, providing a visual timeline of the fashion designer’s career as well as the opportunity to visit travelling exhibitions to appreciate different artistic creations. From here, it is on to the visit of the botanical and artist’s landscape garden, The Majorelle Garden, originally designed in 1924 by French Artist Jacques Majorelle transforming the property’s existing garden into a tropical paradise with its vivid cobalt-blue walls accenting of emerald bamboo, sculptural cactuses and international flora."
The Medina
The Medina
"By day or night, the Medina is alive with activity, and the Place Jemaa El Fna thrums with street food vendors and entertainers. Let an Amanjena’s guide lead you among the museums, mosques and medieval wonders of old-town Marrakech, or go it alone and lose yourself in the joyful bustle of the souks and squares, where a new revelation seems to await at every turn."
Marrakech by Motorbike
Marrakech by Motorbike
"Discover up close the landscapes of Marrakech in just two hours, with an exclusive sidecar tour of the city and its surroundings. Begin in the desert-defying greenery of the Palmeraie, the oasis home of Amanjena, before venturing through the earthen walls of the Red City to explore secret side streets and the hidden gardens of medieval riads."
Agabay Dunes
Agabay Dunes
"The starkly beautiful, almost lunar landscape of Agafay is an otherworldly wonder that many visitors to Morocco never get to explore. Take one of Amanjena’s effort-saving e-bikes for a guided 35km ride across the ‘Marrakech Sahara’, taking in cacti, eucalyptus, historic villages and the eye-opening drama of the dunes."
Golf
Golf
"Moments from Amanjena and the Old Town, the 27-hole Amelkis Golf Club is ranked as one of the finest in Morocco, known for the technical challenges posed by a number of its holes. Not far away Royal Golf Marrakech offers a narrower layout with lush vegetation and gardens that date back to the 1930."
