I stayed at the beautiful Jnane Tamsna boutique hotel with three friends, and each and everyone of us was absolutely delighted. My room, the African Suite in the Moussafir Villa, was beautifully decorated with gorgeous textiles and antiques. We had this villa, and its pool to entirely ourselves, but all had great interactions with the other guests when we would wander through the lush garden to the main house for meals. It was clear that this oasis getaway attracts like-minded, creative and interesting people, who often come back together after having met during their previous stay. This was the case with some of the other guests we met. The staff was so friendly and this joined with the owner Meryanne's warm hospitality, made us feel entirely at home.
Samira at the office was very informative about what kind of activities we could do. She organized a camel ride and the camels were brought straight to the front door. As an advanced tennis player, I can say the tennis coaching lessons they provided were great, as well as the hotel's clay tennis court, which is in great condition.
The cuisine, sourced for the most part from their organic garden, was simply exquisite. Chilled cucumber soups and gazpachos, delicious spicy grilled meats, fresh fruit and amazing chocolate cake. The perfect end to each meal was the mint tea, picked from the garden the very day.
A great thank you to Meryanne, her staff and the Jnane family for welcoming my friends and I into this beautiful oasis paradise in which we could not have felt more at home. I look forward to coming back in the very near future.
