Jnane Tamsna

Marrakech, Morocco

The north african city of Marrakech attracts a fashionable crowd of winter sun seekers from all over the world. The lovely old town, so called Medina boasts a greater density of chic boutique lodgings than possibly anywhere else in the world. Even non-shoppers will be amazed by the diversity, colour and vibrancy surrounding the souks. Set in nine landscaped acres within a private estate, Jnane Tamsna offers a total of 24 ensuite bedrooms spread over three properties: Jnane House, Jnane Moussafir and Jnane Villa. There are two large and two small meeting rooms as well as numerous sitting rooms, dining areas and outdoor spaces. The grounds feature five pools and a clay surface tennis court. Jnane Tamsna adopts a minimalist approach to Oriental splendour. Elements of traditional Moroccan style and colour have been adapted to achieve a peaceful, contemporary look. The cuisine is a fusion of Moroccan and modern European, using local produce sourced wherever possible from Jnane Tamsna's organic gardens. From individual rooms to exclusive villa rental, Jnane Tamsna offers a rare flexibility.
