October 2023 – As Morocco warmly welcomes the return of travelers from around the world, the luxury Amanjena Hotel also welcomes guests to its unique palatial resort just outside the UNESCO World Heritage city of Marrakech. Amanjena means “peaceful paradise”-it is situated in a particularly quiet and peaceful location. Surrounded by palm trees and olive groves, guests can experience the unique hospitality and special charm of Morocco and enjoy the hotel’s latest offerings near the famous “Red City”:
New pool pavilions
In early October, Amanjena unveils eight restored pavilions, expanding its collection to 40 pavilions and maisons. The eight beautiful Pavillons with vaulted ceilings and elegant Moorish-inspired interiors, have been extensively renovated and feature heated swimming pools (7.7m by 3m) and traditional columned pavilions. The king-size beds and green marble from the province of Ouarzazate create an opulent aesthetic. The private villas are perfect retreats for couples and invite relaxation. The new heated swimming pools in the private gardens of the pavilions overlook the magnificent olive groves and the Atlas Mountains.
Moroccan hospitality with a traditional Berber family
A wonderful authentic tradition to get a closer look at the great hospitality in Morocco is a visit to the Brahim family. In their typical Moroccan house, guests are served a homemade Berber meal. Sidi Brahim and his son Said invite to a walk through the hidden village L’Arbaa Tighdouine in the Atlas Mountains. Here the guests will get a lot of interesting information about the culture and the surroundings. Afterwards, the Brahim family invites you to their home for Moroccan delicacies in the form of tagines and couscous dishes, which are lovingly prepared according to old family recipes. This unique experience creates a deep connection with nature and the community and is guaranteed to leave lasting memories. What’s special: All proceeds from this experience go directly to the Brahim family to support their relatives and neighbors affected by the recent earthquakes in the region.

Aman was founded in 1988 with the vision of creating a collection of intimate retreats, with the warm but humble hospitality of a gracious private home. The First Amanpuri (meaning “place of peace” in Sanskrit) in Phuket, Thailand, introduced this concept. Since then, Aman has grown to 34 exquisite and tranquil hotels as well as resorts. They range from urban to remote locations in 20 spectacular destinations around the globe, 12 of which have Aman Branded Residences. Another ten projects are in the planning stages and several are under construction.
In recent years, Aman Group has added more products to the portfolio, including Aman Skincare (2018), Sva nutritional supplements (2020), Aman Fine Fragrance (2020), The Essentials by Aman fashion collection (2021) and Aman Essential Skin skincare line (2023). With innovation a cornerstone of the brand’s philosophy, Aman Group welcomed a new hotel brand, Janu – meaning “soul” in Sanskrit – in 2020. Janu offers a unique take on hospitality where genuine human interaction, playful expression and well-being are at the heart of the experience. Seven more Janu hotels are in the pipeline for the brand, including Tokyo (2023) and AlUla in Saudi Arabia, currently under construction.
