We stayed twice at Jnane Tamsna. The 1st time for 3 nights. Our best friend had taken it over for her 50th and it was magical. From the meals being served every day in a different place of their gorgeous gardens, to the hundreds of roses, the exquisite food and thousands of candles in the garden, all was just like a dream from breakfasts to dinners. Then we travelled for 6 days in Morocco and came back to Jnane Tamsna for our final 3 nights, since we had been too busy before to visit much of this old and beautiful city.
First of all, Jnane is at the perfect distance from the Medina, where you do not want to stay if you are looking for relaxing nights, space and vegetation. The old Medina is buzzing with exotic sounds, smells, colors but there is too much traffic, too much pollution to make it an enjoyable experience once you have finished visiting the old palaces and famous markets.
Then, after 6 days of tagines and cousous around the country,it was fantastic to come back to Jnane fresh vegetables from the garden, flavored modern fresh food and excellent home cooking.
Then the design, the talent of its gracious owner has been celebrated in the best magazines world wide for decades and she is indeed very good.
She has created a place where you just feel fine, happy and disconnected ! A serene and exciting atmosphere which has the magic of a private home, an elegant private home and not an ' over designed' boutique hotel like many we stayed at around the world.
Then the staff, we spoke to some and they had all been there for years, this must be adding to the magic of the place and the general happy vibes you can feel.
Free wifi all over, make you realise how much there is no need for a TV in room, impeccable laundry and pressing included in the room rate, vegetables and fruits juices upon our numerous requests were never charged.
The tennis coach was very good, the yoga teacher too, the massages were spot on. What is there to add ? We would love to go back and we will next time we go to Europe. It makes it a very short extension... The closest exotic one. We ran into a lot of guests who have been going there for years... We are definitely joining the club.
