Jnane Tamsna, Marrakech, Palmeraie

"The ultimate in modern Moroccan chic, exquisite maison d'hotes and favoured villa retreat"

Jnane Tamsna, in the heart of Marrakech's, famed palm grove, is the latest creation of Meryanne Loum-Martin. After having created Dar Tamsna in 1989, then Ryad Tamsna in 1999, she was determined to return to the rural ambience of the Palmeraie for her new project. With the help of her husband Dr. Gary J. Martin - an American ethnobotanist - she designed a Moorish country house which celebrates vernacular architecture and the rural landscapes of the Palmeraie.

Date palms, olive trees and grapevines create an oasis atmosphere in the midst of spontaneous vegetation on vast plains and rolling hills surrounding the estate. Extensive fruit orchards and vegetable gardens provide fresh produce for Jnane Tamsna's Moroccan-Mediterranean cuisine. Inside, the architecture is structured around two courtyard gardens filled with fragrant white-flowered plants.

Jnane Tamsna consists of two houses within a walled garden to rent individually or in exclusivity: Jnane House and Moussafir House. All rooms have central heating and an ensuite. All beds can be turned into twin beds except the four poster bed in the Celadon room. There are two pools and one clay surface tennis court. Jnane House has 10 rooms next to the large pool in a spacious private garden. Moussafir house has 5 suites with easy access to a smaller lap pool and a private garden, and each of the suites has its own television, DVD player and stereo. Guests can enjoy all gardens and both pools, except when one of the houses is rented in exclusivity. Situated in an adobe-walled estate of 15 acres, its capacity can be augmented by other houses on the property. In all, 32 double rooms are available in four large homes, each with its own guest pavilion and swimming pools.

A stay at Jnane Tamsna offers you cultural experiences to satiate your spirit, healthy living to restore your body, and intellectual discoveries to stimulate your mind. In excursions to the Medina and the countryside discover vernacular architecture, garden history, and initiatives of cultural and ecological restoration. When you return home to Jnane Tamsna, rejuvenate yourself against the backdrop of the High Atlas mountains with massage, aromatherapy and organic cuisine.
