Inspired by the rose-hued buildings of old Marrakech, palatial Amanjena is close to the fabled Red City, set in its own expanse of gardens and grand open spaces. Shaded courtyards with fountains lead to the central bassin that nourishes the gardens in which spacious stand-alone guest pavilions and maisons rest, all with private gardens and many with private pools. Views stretch across the olive groves and palms of the oasis, extending to the High Atlas Mountains on the horizon.
Guests can spend time relaxing by the pool, enjoy a game of tennis on one of Amanjena’s clay courts, take to the 27-hole Amelkis Golf Course which sits next door, or visit the otherworldly landscape of the Agafay dunes deep in the desert.
Amanjena’s exceptionally appointed pavilions and maisons are cool, elegant dwellings with Berber carpets scattered over zellij-tiled floors and high ceilings for an opulent feel. Away from the bustle of the fabled red city of Marrakech, the sound of running water in fountains soothes while chaise longues and candle lanterns lend classic Moroccan ambience.
The Al Hamra Maison offers an expansive 1,130 square metres (12,163 square feet) of space, set within a private garden, complete with large, heated pool, two large traditional outdoor gazebos for dining and lounging and a spacious main pavilion.The Maison sleeps up to four guests, making it ideal for families or small groups of friends, with two master suites, each comprising large bedroom, dressing room and bathroom, exquisitely finished in green marble from Ouarzazate with a stepped and columned bathtub encouraging rest and relaxation. The main living space sits between the two suites, offering a spacious living and dining area, opening out onto the extensive private garden. Al Hamra Maison is also home to a private bar and stocked pantry, with a private host on hand to tend to every need. Design features reflect the character and charm of the resort’s beautiful location, with Berber carpets, zellij tiled floors and large mirrors, creating an elegant atmosphere, while the spacious private gardens and outdoor gazebos for dining and relaxation create an expansive private oasis for guests.
