Amanjena


Amanjena (Aman means "peaceful" in Sanskrit; jena is Arabic for paradise) lies within an oasis of palms and olive trees close to the ancient city of Marrakech. Amanjena is the first Amanresort on the African continent. Amanjena’s rose-blush walls mirror Marrakech, known in Arabic as Al Medina al-Hamra (the red city). The resort’s design emulates the old Moorish pisé (packed earth) buildings, as well as the Berber villages that cling to the High Atlas Mountains.

The resort’s 32 pavilions, six, two-storey maisons and largest accommodation, the Al-Hamra Maison, are set within an oasis of palms and mature olive trees. All of the resort’s 32 air-conditioned pavilions include a bedroom-living room and spacious bathroom and dressing area. The living area consists of a high, domed ceiling, a king-size platform bed and an open fireplace. Brass lanterns and Berber carpets discreetly reinforce the Moroccan theme. Furnishings include a daybed with an accompanying table and chair. The suites have a mini-bar, a CD player and a TV/DVD, while green Moroccan marble and a soaking tub in a garden setting highlight the bathroom. Each pavilion has its own private courtyard along with a pillared minzah (gazebo) and a fountain.

Amanjena’s six two-storey maisons rise seven metres from floor to ceiling in a variation of the Moroccan townhouse, with trines of second-floor windows looking inward, as if to a garden courtyard.

Specializing in local Moroccan and International cuisine, the Restaurant features a scalloped onyx fountain ringed by date palms, 80 onyx columns, wood screens and a pyramid skylight. It is open for dinner. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are served in the Thai Restaurant, which offers Thaic cuisine indoors and in a garden courtyard. Breakfast, lunch and refreshments are served at the Pool Terrace. The Bar (and fumoir) features smoke-tinted mirrors, old Berber daggers and Arab swords.

Amanjena’s heated outdoor 33m swimming pool is finished in green tiles and bordered by hibiscus flowers. There is a separate shallow pool. The hammam or steam bath is central to Moroccan life. Unsurprisingly, it has pride of place at the heart of the Amanjena Health and Beauty Centre. Each hammam (one each for men and women) is complemented by showers, washrooms, a change area and glassed-in whirlpool.

Other facilities include the Library, with a six-metre ceiling and fireplace, two tennis courts, lit for night play and one boutique within the cedar-ceiling colonnade that follows the swimming pool.

Wedding at Amanjena


For an exotic ceremony, Amanjena, near Marrakech, can arrange a traditional Moroccan wedding. Pink-hued rose petals whose scent fills the air, adorn the various water pools and fountains dotted around the property. Arabian music plays softly in the background as the wedding couple are prepared according to the ancient rites of the harem – with a traditional hammam followed by a massage and henné tatouage. A wedding carriage led by Moroccan chants carries the bride, while her husband-to-be accompanies the musicians on horseback. After the wedding ceremony the couple travels together by carriage while enjoying the traditional after-marriage refreshments of milk, dates and orange-flower water. Rose petals are scattered over them for luck, and, as dusk falls, the wedding party enters the graceful reception tent set in an olive grove. After an exotic feast rounded off with Moroccan tea and pastries, Andalusian music and belly dancers entertain the wedding party well into the balmy night.

Only non-legally binding ceremonies are available at Amanjena, with a maximum of 100 wedding guests  Exclusive use of the resort is required for a traditional Moroccan wedding celebration.
