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):
- Amanjena (peaceful paradise) is located just outside the ancient city of Marrakech. Set within an oasis of palms and olive trees, Moorish heritage is reflected throughout the pisé-walled resort, including the guest pavilions that radiate out from an ancient bassin, echoing the style of a sultan's palace. Amanjena offers a variety of guided excursions on foot, bicycle or private car into the medina, the souk and squares, palaces, gardens and craft shops of ancient Marrakech. ... more less
