The surroundings and tranquility are breathtaking and magical. It captures the spirit of Marrakech. On arrival, we were served with a much-needed delicious meal as we sat out by the poolside. The room was airy, and full of light with a balcony from which to gaze out at the abundant flora and watch the stunning sunrises and sunsets. Not to... More

You can be easily deceived by first impressions of this hotel, especially if you arrive at night. The architecture and interior design is very nice to look at, which is why the place is used for photo shoots (two during our weeks visit) but it really needs a good clean and tidy-up. The price and experience aren't matching. The furniture... More

This hotel really surpassed all our expectations, from the warm welcome we received upon arrival to the heavenly gardens & stylish interior decor. It is a little oasis of calm & tranquility just 20 minutes away from the hectic souks in the Medina so the city centre is within easy reach. We had a gorgeous room in 1 of the... More

Jnane Tamsna is a very nice hotel in the Palmeraie. I have just returned from staying there for 3 nights with my mother. We found the hotel to be extremely expensive for what it is. The "renowned" chef is no longer there and dinner had a slight feel of "school dinners" about it. When given a glass of wine it... More

This was my third trip to Jnane Tamsna and again, it lived up to my high expectations. Staying at this property is magical; it's not the cookie-cutter experience you get at so many hotels. From the moment you enter the candle-lit salon upon arrival you know you're somewhere special where you can leave the pressure and worries of everyday life... More

Dear J, Thank you so much for taking the time to share your experience. As you wrote it was your 3rd stay, I hope that there will be a 4th ! So much more cooking classes to have and next time you come our herbs and vegetable gardens will have recovered from the unusual drought and heat we had for... More

I had heard of this place several times (book: Maroc Chic, magazines articles) and it seemed amazing. From what I saw on their website it seemed really amazing. From the reviews I checked on Tripadvisor (everyone saying it was paradise, I suspect now it’s reviews from friends) it seemed really amazing. We were sold on it. From all I had... More

Dear A.M, I was very sorry to read what an unpleasant experience you had in your early September stay. It is true that we had a particularly hot summer with long weeks at + 50 degrees and this does have a toll on the vegetation, on the property and on the staff. As you said that you always try different... More

This is the third time I have been to Jnane Tamsna and certainly not the last.... I find it very hard to put into words how wonderful the experience has been each time I enter the gates and into this Eden. The garden is superb and Gary's (the owner and creator) passion for its every secret is infectious. He has... More

I write this on the other side of the world, scheming madly to return soonest, so I can wake up with the sun, do my yoga on the rooftop with palm tree views as far as the eye can see, or amidst the fragrant gardens where I go after working up an appetite, to pick the world's tastiest arugula and...

I am getting ready to return to Marrakech, staying with Meryanne and Gary at Jnane Tamsna again. I love it! I have been numerous times, as it feels like home, and is a wonderful place to have as a base for lical exploration. Jnane redefines hospitality, not only with grace, food (incredible!), design, presentation, but they are filled with knowledge... More
