A peaceful paradise with the gateway to the Sahara Desert.
What we think
Skylark only includes hotels that meet our stamp of approval. Our editorial review for this one isn’t ready yet — but we’re working on it! Below is the hotel’s own description.
Amanjena, or ‘peaceful paradise’, is the first Amanresort on the African continent, located just 15-minutes drive outside the ancient Moroccan city of Marrakech on the southern road to Ouarzazate, the gateway to the Sahara Desert. The High Atlas Mountains claim the Marrakech horizon and the Atlantic coast is just two hours away.
Restaurants & Bars
The Thai Restaurant - situated alongside the swimming pool, is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The Pool Terrace meanwhile is open for breakfast and lunch, overlooking the pool and adjacent golf course. Guests can also enjoy private dining in their Pavilion or Maison. Special dinners or buffets to celebrate a unique occasion can be arranged. Upon request, intimate dinners accompanied by local music can be organised in the Caidal Tent, a traditional and romantic venue situated in an olive grove. The Bar is ideal for casual dining, pre-dinner aperitifs and post-dinner nightcaps. Located just off Amanjena’s entranceway, the venue is airily cool in summer and warmly welcoming during winter with its open fireplace and ambient lighting. Housed within The Bar, The Fumoir offers a selection of cigars.
