I returned to Jnane last week on a last minute solo getaway, and while the hotel was brimming, the very helpful management team found me a last-minute room: it was wonderfully quiet, fresh and relaxing, giving on to the lush garden which was bursting with life after the spring rains. Some of this wondrous bounty was then served up in the freshly harvested (and of course, organic) salads and vegetables we were given at every delicious meal.
While Marrakech is a breathtaking city, it is a bit of a dusty and noisy one too, so I cannot recommend enough coming out to Jnane for those who seek a bit of quiet and contemplation within easy reach of the sights, culture and markets of town. Yet for being quiet and peaceful, Jnane is always full of a wonderful mix of guests - older couples, young couples with children, solo travellers like myself - who get to know each other and hang out like old friends. Some people I met were on their 4th, 5th and even 8th return trip to the hotel!
At the risk of sounding mystical, both times I have been, I have felt that one of the reasons people return to Jnane is because Meryanne and Gary, the lovely owners, have cast some kind of magic spell over the place. Everything is just as it ought to be, the staff are without fail friendly and helpful, the food is always spot on, and the whole experience is one of one's desires being met even before one has fully formulated them...
I recommend booking in advance though, especially at this time of year. I was lucky to be squeezed in, but do not expect that luck to hold when I plan my next Marrakech getaway.
