Jnane Tamsna is a refined and elegant luxury boutique hotel set within its own landscaped private estate in the Palmeraie, a historic palm grove conveniently located a short 20-minute drive from downtown Marrakesh. With 24 ensuite rooms across three properties, the accommodation offering includes individual room bookings, or exclusive villa rentals. Boasting beautiful grounds, exceptional service and cuisine, and some superb facilities comprising no fewer than five swimming pools and a clay-surfaced tennis court, this opulent retreat provides the perfect spot for rest and rejuvenation. There’s also a varied programme of residential activities, and some wonderful day trips to enjoy in the surrounding area.

The hotel’s design combines traditional Moroccan architecture with understated oriental décor, accentuated with exquisite Islamic art and African fabrics. Noted for its cuisine, the hotel’s meals are flavoursome and fresh, with produce and herbs sourced where possible from the on-site organic gardens. Candlelit meals are often enjoyed outdoors in one of the grounds’ many delightful alcoves.

The accommodation comprises 24 bedrooms spread out over three properties; Jnane House, Jnane Moussafir, and Jnane Villa. Jnane House has a traditional riad feel, extensive grounds with two pools, and a total of 10 bedrooms; six on the ground floor, and four on the first floor facing a roof terrace. Two more private rooms are found in Dar Ylane, a separate property just a short distance away from the main Jnane House. Smaller in scale, Jnane Moussafir contains just five spacious suites, each with individual Islamic-inspired décor, air conditioning, a fireplace, and a walk-in closet. All of Jnane Moussafir’s suites boast private north and south verandas with views over an exclusive garden, along with access to their own roof terraces, and all bathrooms have a fireplace, a luxurious bathtub, two sinks, and a separate shower and toilet. The third property, Jnane Villa, features a large dining room, breakfast room, and lounge area with fireplace and adjoining veranda, and houses five spacious en-suite bedrooms with open fireplaces. There’s a large pool in the private Mediterranean gardens, and, set aside in another separate garden, the Jnane Villa Pavilion contains two bedroom suites with fireplaces, a sitting room, and al fresco dining area, along with a private pool fringed by lavender and olive trees. Televisions, DVD, and CD players are available upon request, and WiFi is available throughout.

The hotel is renowned for its rotating programme of superb residential events, including yoga and pilates classes, spa retreats, cooking workshops, and literary salons. These activities, coupled with the clay tennis courts and five swimming pools provide plenty to do on site, although reception can assist with booking activities elsewhere, including day trips to Essaouira and the Atlas Mountains, should guests wish to venture out.

Jnane Tamsna is a highly family-friendly property, with many flexible room options. There are three sets of adjoining bedrooms, and in addition the Casablanca and Calligraphy suites within the Jnane Moussafir part of the property, share a large veranda. Cots are provided free-of-charge, and additional beds are available at extra cost. Babysitting is available day or night, and beyond the tennis courts, pools, TV and games room, children's entertainment including henna painting, cooking lessons, and camel rides can be booked in advance.

  • We had a fantastic time. Thank you for all your help, advice and guidance in organising our holiday. As this was not our first booking with Tourdust we were confident that all our transfers would work perfectly and they did - everything ran so smoothly! The riad in Marrakesh was stunning - a truly beautiful oasis of calm in such a busy, bustling city. As you can imagine, we were very grateful for the air conditioning in our room as outside was so hot! I was nervous about walking through the souks at night, but as they were well lit we felt perfectly safe and found our confidence grew in navigating the journey home each time we ventured out. When we arrived at our lodge in the Atlas Mountains we were blown away by the scenery. The views were amazing and the beautiful lodge gardens were the perfect place to sit and relax before taking a dip in the pool. Our day trek was truly amazing - no small thanks to our guide Rashid, who was so helpful and knowledgable. The lunch in the traditional Berber village was delicious and we were were made to feel so welcome. The home owner showed us how to make bread and then cooked it for us in her traditional clay oven. This was a memory we will never forget as we stood surrounded by her chickens and goats watching her use her bare hands to prepare the fire! Our night in the desert was breathtaking. The camel ride at sunset was so incredible and the quad biking the next morning was brilliant fun. I am so glad we added in these extras as they really made the experience! We finally made it to our hotel at the coast, where the surf lessons were a hit and the hotel was a great place to relax and read! Thank you again for all your help. We would definitely recommend Tourdust to all our friends and family. Tanya

  • Dear Lisa
    Well, we are back and still buzzing. We have had a marvellous time. The weather helped. We left Manchester in the snow and arrived in Marrakesh at 30 degrees. We were well looked after in the Riad. I'm glad we booked a meal for the first evening - ate it on the roof terrace. We can recommend that. It was delicious. We ate at the Foundouk, as per your recommendation and on the following night we ate at Le Jardin - got lost on the way to it!. We can really recommend Le Jardin.
    The following day we went to Majorelle gardens. Fortunately we had looked it up before we travelled because you have to book in advance online only from Jan 2023. We found our own way to the Medera Ben Yousef and Latifa took us to Bahia Palace - both were stunning.
    The following morning our lovely taxi driver Mohammond collected us to go to the EcoLodge. Yet another Mohammond made us very welcome. Again we ate well! You were right, the pool was freezing, but I can't sit next to water and not get in. Once you're in you forget how cold it is! I wasn't the only person to try the pool.
    Rashid, our guide for our walk collected us. He was brilliant. It was hard work, but worth it. I was determined I would make it. Kevin is fitter than me! The Berber family were lovely. We stopped when we were nearly there to see how rag rugs were made. When we got back Rashid and Mohammond confessed that Mohammond had said to Rashid that he should get us to a road if we got too tired and they would send a taxi (or a mule!) to collect us - or me, but Rashid was sure that I'd be OK. He was right. I think they wondered about these 2 70+ year olds. We can't praise Rashid enough. He had walked over from Imlil in the morning and was going to walk back after he left us.
    Thank you so much for putting our holiday together. We never thought it would be 3 years before we went. We are so glad we persevered. We did wonder what we had let ourselves in for as 2 oldies!
    Fiona and Kevin
