Accommodations

A sense of place that emulates the old Moorish pisé.

Amanjena’s rose-blush walls mirror the vibrant city, known in Arabic as Al Medina al-Hamra (the red city). A real sense of place is established as 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 thirty-two pavilions and eight Maisons and Al-Hamra Maison, are set within an oasis of palms and mature olive trees. All of the resort’s thirty-two air-conditioned pavilions include a bedroom-living room and spacious bathroom and dressing area. Each pavilion has its own private courtyard along with a pillared minzah (gazebo) and a fountain, while eight of them have a private pool. Amanjena’s seven two-story 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.
Pool + Gym

For those who want to get moving.

Amanjena’s heated outdoor thirty-three meter swimming pool is finished in green tiles and bordered by hibiscus flowers. There is a separate shallow pool as well. Other facilities include the Library, with a six-meter ceiling and fireplace, two tennis courts, lit for night play and one boutique within the cedar-ceiling colonnade that follows the swimming pool.

For those who want to get moving, Amanjena offers mat Pilates and boxing, as well as a range of cardio and weight equipment in fitness center. Workouts can also take place in their outdoor gazebos or in the privacy of guests' Pavilion or Maison.
Spa

Ancient healing traditions and cutting edge modern science.

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. Guests are invited to benefit from the attention of wellness experts in a range of field, with one-on-one sessions tailored treatment plans. Ancient healing traditions and cutting edge modern science are offered with treatments that include Ayurveda, Traditional Chinese Medicine, Thai massage, and Shiatsu, each designed to be adapted to individual needs.
Restaurants + Bar

Signature Italian and Moroccan cuisine.

Specializing in local Moroccan and Italian cuisine, the Restaurant serves up Aman’s Signature ARVA Menu beside a scalloped onyx fountain ringed by date palms, eighty onyx columns, wood screens, and a pyramid skylight. It is open for dinner. Breakfast, lunch, and dinner are served at NAMA which offers Japanese cuisine indoors and in a garden courtyard. Breakfast, lunch, and refreshments are served at the Pool Terrace and Olive Grove.
  • Who's it for?
    The property is ideal for families thanks to its magnificent main swimming pool and children’s activities. Beyond trips with the kids, Amanjena is an exclusive year-round destination for honeymoons, golfing breaks, and private events.
  • Location

Agent Tips

  • For a memorable evening, have a romantic private dinner in your courtyard surrounded by hundreds of candles.
  • The tennis courts are lit up at night so you can play a match after the sun goes down.
