Hotel Amanjena Review

If you saw Sex & the City 2 in 2010, then you might just recognize this flashy retreat. Just south of the Palmery, Hotel Amanjena is a blend of Moorish and ancient Egyptian architecture. The terra-cotta-color villas and pavilions all surround a turquoise lagoon from which a series of smaller lagoons spread out through the manicured gardens. Each pavilion and villa is secluded and enveloped by lush plants, and the stylish, generously sized bedrooms have high domed ceilings. Some units have private dipping pools, fountains, and garden courtyards with drapes and white divans; each unit has a bath with a view of the blue sky and the tops of palm trees.

    In Culture-Rich Marrakech, Amanjena Indulges

    For an ideal Moroccan experience stay at uber private & luxurious Amanjena outside the Medina where indulgences that "Aman junkies" & patrons alike have come to expect. Amanjena offers incredibly personalized service, spoilingly indulgent luxuries & comforting amenities as evidenced upon arrival into Menara Int'l. Rashid, a multi-lingual driver whisked us to the Aman property as several Amanjena staff offered warm, genuine Arabic greetings, "As-Salaam Malaykum," followed by traditional Moroccan mint tea to break your journey fireside in their lounge. Room 5. In a pavilion piscine w/max. privacy set among towering palm trees, lush gardens, a riad, chaise lounges, & fountain, we swam both day & night in the heated pool, part of your own private, enclosed quarters. A super spacious, mammoth bathroom offers his/her sinks, closets, changing areas, w/combined bidet & commode, bath, shower. All amenities, including take-home leather his/hers Moroccan slippers and basket are the final touches to welcome you to this Aman haven. Atmosphere 5. Such indulgent surroundings allow you to enjoy your villa guilt-free as you may wish to never leave. Service+5 is warm, genuine and sincere as both smiling Houda, Amanjena's Asst Front Desk Mgr & Rashad Front Desk Mgr are ambassadors of Amanjena & welcome you w/treatment usually reserved for dignitaries & VIPs. Exotic spa treatments (must try a traditional Moroccan Hammam), dining choices, tours, to Concierge complete your amenity list. Amanjena resident tour guide, Ha Tim (Casablanca) the most coveted tour master of the Medina, was available on a moment's (less than 1 hr's) notice, at day's end. We believe no feat could stump this group as we requested an English-speaking driver & tour guide at the last minute to give a night time tour of the Djemaa el Fna & surrounding souks. Value 5. Given the first & currently only Aman property on the African continent, Morocco's Amanjena can and will indulge you to no end.

    Best in Marrakech!

    A truly phenomenal resort and a nice break from the craziness of the medina. The service was impeccable as was the food. The rooms were beautiful and totally up to Aman standards. The staff went above and beyond to accommodate us from the second we got there. Our luggage was lost en route to Marrakech and they were on the phone constantly to ensure it was in our room within five hours of our arrival. I can go on and on, but simply put- its a wonderful hotel and I will definitely be back!
