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

Bonjour Meryane, We have just returned from your wonderful oasis of a Hotel in Marrakech! We bid for this as an auction lot at a charity event in aid of "Sohanna research Trust" a cause we try and support as much as we can but didnt really know what to expect! On arrival, We could not believe how beautiful your... 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

Jnane tamsna has potential to be a wonderful place but unfortunately it was terrible. The rooms are shabby and run down and the service is slow and not friendly. What I was most surprised of was that the place was generally dirty and smelly. Worst of all the owner, mary-anne, was rude and penny grabbing. I strongly recommend that you... More

Great atmosphere.Feels like a private home wih excellent food, style and service. Beautiful and vast gardens.Under the canopy of centuries old trees, we had romantic dinners surrounded by zillions of candles. Have been to many places where design takes over comfort or service but not at Jnane Tamsna.Room was beautiful, lots of prints and attention to details. Location is also... More

We recently travelled around Morocco. Stayed in the Medina first, then went South and came back and stayed at Jnane Tamsna.The Medina was exotic and charming for the first 24 hours. Then we realised that what we really want on holidays is peace and calm. After exploring the fabulous landscapes of Southern Morocco, we arrived at night in Jnane Tamsna.... More

I am writing this as I am by the pool in Jnane Tamsna. I can only hear the birds. A freshly pressed grapefruit juice in my hand with a drible of vodka... What a place !

Beautiful simple food and rustic tasteful country retreat. We came for a day to use the pool and relax away from the madness of Marrakech. Unfortunately the teaching cook was away so we couldn't do a cooking course. But the chef who was around served up some beautiful fish, a light relief after some very rich food had elsewhere. A...
