We did not follow the advice of friends and had booked 4 nights in the Medina first and then at Jnane Tamsna. After 2 nights in the Medina we rushed to the Palmeraie and Jnane Tamsna. As beautiful and exotic as the Medina is, it was noisy, polluted and very claustrophobic. We were looking for a relaxing and exciting escape and Jnane Tamsna was beyond our expectations. Location is ideal, 15 minutes drive from the Medina but in a lush and old garden. The interiors are very elegant without ever being ostentatious or over the top. The food was fresh and full of flavor. Obviously made every day according to the menu of the day. Fruit and vegetable juices were spot on. The staff is friendly. The service is attentive. The day we arrived it was quiet enough so we could choose our room. We visited 4 and we did not know which one to choose, all different and all beautiful. I liked the sense of privacy as the grounds are vast and there are several pools. I liked the quality of guests we met there. Well travelled, excellent company and way too sophisticated to ever be arrogant or pompous. The whole stay worked like magic on our stressed minds and bodies ! We are going back next winter.
