STAY

Maryanne Loum-martin de­signed and cre­ated the won­der­ful Jnane Mar­rakech ho­tel with the goal of cre­at­ing an oa­sis at­mos­phere, one that re­flected her own tran­quil and im­mutable per­sonal ex­pe­ri­ences of Mar­rakech. If you’re look­ing for a unique get­away, the Jnana Mar­rakech is the per­fect ho­tel spread over a nine acre pri­vate es­tate with en­suite bed­rooms on three prop­er­ties.

The Jnane House is a tra­di­tional “Ryad” or court­yard house. There are two court­yards and a to­tal of ten bed­rooms span­ning two lev­els. The first level grants easy ac­cess to the gar­dens and pools and of­fers a din­ing room as well. There’s a pri­vate at­mos­phere that comes from the sep­a­ra­tion from the other two houses and court­yards.

The Jnane Mousaffi is a themed ex­pe­ri­ence. Based on Is­lamic art and de­sign, the five suites are African, Casablan- ca, Cal­lig­ra­phy, Per­sian, and In­dian. Each of the suites pos­sesses spe­cial touches like a fire­place and walk-in clos­ets and pro­vide ve­ran­das over­look­ing the gar­den as well as a roof ter­race for star-gaz­ing.

The Jnane Villa is nes­tled amongst its own pri­vate Mediter­ranean gar­dens that have an abun­dance of olive and lavender trees. The Villa of­fers an open fire­place, din­ing room, an airy break­fast room, and a liv­ing area with a li­brary and ve­randa as well as an out­door din­ing area.

DINE

The Jnane Tamnsa ho­tel is unique amongst other es­tab­lish­ments of Mar­rakech as it is one of the few places that of­fer classes on Moroc­can cook­ing. Fea­tur­ing vegetables from their gar­den and spices from the nearby Me­d­ina, in­ter­na­tion­ally known Chef Bahija sha­ress her pas­sion for Moroc­can cui­sine with her ea­ger stu­dents. Dur­ing your stay at the Jnane, you should take the three day pro­gram with Chef Bahiia to get the full Moroc­can cook­ing ex­pe­ri­ence.

PLAY

The Jnane Ho­tel’s goal and phi­los­o­phy in­cludes in­doc­tri­nat­ing their guests com­pletely in the Moroc­can cul­ture and have cre­ated a se­ries of ac­tiv­i­ties and events that ac­com­plishes just this. Camel and bike rides in nearby moun­tains are eas­ily sched­uled, and yoga classes are of­fered in the gar­dens on a reg­u­lar ba­sis. Swimming pools and ten­nis courts are within walk­ing dis­tance, and their popular cook­ing classes are al­ways a must.
