For the fourth year, we have booked 3 rooms in Jnane Tamsna with the same very demanding friends. We were all in school together and as our wives get along this is our regular meeting. A great place for friends, family reunion or a romantic escape.The place exudes excellent taste and style. The food is fresh and delicious. The garden spectacular. The staff friendly and never obtrusive, nor obsequious. The property has so many places and corners to enjoy with a book from their excellent library or with home made cookies from the exquisite chef Baija and an organic herb tea freshly picked in front of you... As all guests were getting along -except a very unpleasant couple who obviously did not get at all what this place is about- the exquisite owner invited us all - the nice guests- for dinner in her beautiful house on the grounds. When she discovered that among the guests there was a very good pianist, she opened her house to him every day so he could play.. The whole place was filled with joy, happiness, and very stimulating dinner conversations.
What I love about this place is the fact that you never feel that you are in a hotel. It is like being hosted at friends whose country estate happens to be in Marrakech. The staff never says no and is most gracious. You can walk in the kitchen and speak to the chef, you can ask for a belly dancer to give you classes, for a henna artist to decorate your hands, for horse riding adventure, for cooking classes. As we had special interests in litterature and a writer friend of the owner was visiting town, she organised drinks around him and we enjoyed a short and fascinating reading from his latest book. I could go on and on about the pure bliss it was.. You can have full privacy but if you want to socialise, 9 times out of 10, the guests are the kind of people you love having a drink with.
I would definitely recommend this place to people who enjoy life without any social pressure, without need to show off their designer clothes and are at ease with themselves.
The only dowside during our stay was from this other couple obviously furious that every one was loving it and desperatly trying to ruin our holidays with their constant complaints. We have all booked our 5th stay there as we know they will never come back .
