Aman­jena

Hong Kong Tatler - - Features -

This desert re­sort is set in an oa­sis of palm and olive trees on the hot, dusty road from Mar­rakech to Ouarza­zate, a spot where tired trav­ellers have for­ti­fied them­selves for cen­turies. De­signed by Amer­i­can ar­chi­tect Ed Tut­tle, ev­ery arch, foun­tain and stone court­yard of the Aman­jena pays homage to the past. The Aman DNA of un­ob­tru­sive, ef­fi­cient ser­vice com­bined with the si­lence of the sur­round­ing Sa­hara cre­ate a sub­lime feel­ing of pri­vacy. The rose-hued pavil­ions are in­spired by the colours of nearby Mar­rakech, known as “the red city,” and are em­bel­lished with lovely zel­lige tiles. Each of the 32 lux­u­ri­ous pavil­ions opens onto the 27-hole golf course or olive groves. They are all dec­o­rated with un­der­stated Moroc­can el­e­gance and sub­tle de­tails. En­joy the clay ten­nis courts and golf, have a swim, re­lax in the tra­di­tional spa, or head out on a bi­cy­cle through Ber­ber vil­lages to take in the sur­round­ing beauty—be­fore din­ing on ex­cel­lent Moroc­can and Mediter­ranean fare.
