Whether guests want to relax at their own sunken fire pit, slip away to the full-service spa with its truly Moroccan hammam or sip mint tea poolside, it’s all possible at Amanjena. Outside, the magical caidal tent – with its 1,001 Nights candles – promises a true sense of Morocco. Inside, vaulted ceilings and Moorish arches house cool, elegant interiors. Both design lovers and nature-seekers will feel at home when staying at Amanjena.
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 32 pavilions and 8 Maisons and 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. 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.
Amanjena’s heated outdoor 33m 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-metre 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.

Each hammam (one each for men and women) is complemented by showers, washrooms, a change area and glassed-in whirlpool.
