Morocco presents the Ideal Seasonal Escape | Amanjena

With minimal rainfall and plenty of warm sunshine, Morocco presents the ideal seasonal escape. Inspired by the rose-hued buildings of old Marrakech, palatial Amanjena lies close to the fabled Red City within its own expanse of lush gardens, fringed by the emerald fairways of the Amelkis Golf Course. With fountain-centered courtyards leading to a vast central bassin and views stretching over olive groves to the High Atlas Mountains, the secluded resort is a magical destination for all ages.

Garden & Basin

Amanjena’s interconnecting Pavilions and spacious Maisons – many with private gardens and individual swimming pools – are an ideal base for family getaways exploring the region’s many attractions. Whether discovering the otherworldly landscape of the Agafay dunes deep in the desert via quadbike or relaxing by the main swimming pool, a holiday at Amanjena this summer can be as active or laidback as each family member desires.

Children staying have a plethora of activities to choose from including carriage rides with Amanjena’s pet donkey, calligraphy or clay workshops, as well as tennis and golf lessons to hone their skills. Family yoga sessions and cooking classes strengthen bonds and make unforgettable memories, while falconry experiences reveal the secrets of this ancient art with local tribes showcasing both high and low flying birds. Storytelling in Marrakech is a sacred practice with ancient roots, and Amanjena hosts Moroccan storytelling sessions for the whole family to help preserve this ancient custom while delighting a new generation of listeners. Private movie screenings bring more recent narratives to life – with hot chocolate and popcorn on the side.

Children Swimming Pool

Over the school holidays, enthralling arts and crafts activities entertain children in Amanjena’s cosy Library, presenting a daily activity hub and hangout families. Between this inviting and stimulating space and the resort’s main swimming pool, as well as a dedicated heated swimming pool for smaller children and toddlers, there’s a chance little ones won’t want to leave.
