The hotel and the grounds were beautiful and we were so relaxed after our short stay.
The room was the best part - it was stunning and very private. We felt completely isolated from the world.
The reason I would give this 4 stars instead of 5 was that it was a solid 20 minute drive back to town and there wasn't much to do around the hotel. I understand this is sort of the point of the Amanjena and if it had been my honeymoon it would have been lovely, but I can't imagine what you do after more than 2 days here if golf isn't your thing. It was also incredibly expensive and I stayed some other places in Marrakech that I found every bit as luxurious without the same considerable price tag.
Another one of the highlights for us were the drivers who took us to and from town. They were very eager to point out landmarks and to share details about Marrakech - it was a little bit like having a tour guide for the world's shortest tour.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- There is a place in paradise where peace holds time, where nature and culture know no seams, where comfort and luxury unite in style and where water reflects the blush of clay. This place is Amanjena, Morocco’s Moorish rose, a resort secluded in a private lush haven near the pulsating Medina of Marrakech and the High Atlas Mountains. ... more less
