We have become big fans of Jnane Tamsna and have stayed there many times. This time we came back for some sunshine and relaxation during the winter season (our plane had to be de-iced when we left Amsterdam). It was great and we have decided to do this every year. Upon arrival we were greeted by the same staff that has been around for years, a testimony to both Meryanne, the owner, and Jnane Tamsna. It felt like coming home.
We spent our days between reading books in the sun, having delicious lunches and sitting by the fire place at night eating our diner. Staying at Jnane feels like staying at the house of a good friend (with a smiling staff and 5 swimming pools..). We always leave Jnane inspired and full of good memories. This year they opened a bike track through the Palmeraie which is great for going on a walk and I would definitely recommend doing this.
What makes Jnane really different from the other places in the Palmeraie is the relaxed feel about it. It feels luxurious yet at the same time very grounded and real. Thanks to Meryanne's husband Gary, who is a renowned ethno botanist, the gardens are very lush. It is all done with respect to local vegetation and a minimal amount of water use, which makes it even more impressive. You can see people working on the vegetable plots under palm trees. All the houses are all very tastefully decorated, but it never becomes stuffy. Meryanne has a talent for effortless flair.
