About Jnane Tamsna
Set in nine landscaped acres within a private estate, Jnane Tamsna offers a total of twenty four en-suite bedrooms spread over five properties:
The grounds feature five pools and a clay surface tennis court. Jnane Tamsna adopts a minimalist approach to Oriental splendour. Elements of traditional Moroccan style and colour have been adapted to achieve a peaceful, contemporary look. The cuisine is a fusion of Moroccan and modern European, using local produce sourced wherever possible from Jnane Tamsna's organic gardens.
From individual rooms to exclusive villa rental, Jnane Tamsna offers a rare flexibility. As a private or corporate venue, it blends the large capacity usually only offered by hotels and the absolute intimacy, first-class food and fine service of the best private homes.
Jnane House - sleeps 20-24
Jnane House, with a total of ten bedrooms, combines the architecture and layout of the traditional 'ryad' (courtyard house) with the spaciousness of a country home. The first courtyard gives access to comfortable, intimate living and dining rooms.
Dar Ylane - sleeps 2
Two further private rooms are available in Dar Ylane, a separate house a short walk away. The grounds, which comprise extensive gardens and two large pools, offer numerous alcoves for discreet private dining.
Jnane Moussafir - sleeps 4
Jnane Moussafir is a journey from West Africa to Northern India, inspired by the variety of Islamic art and design. The five suites African, Casablanca, Calligraphy, Persian and Indian are large and air conditioned, with fireplaces and walk-in closets. Casablanca and Calligraphy, with their spacious common veranda, are ideal for two couples or a family.
They all have private north and south verandas overlooking an exclusive garden, as well as access to their own roof terraces. Each bathroom has a fireplace, bathtub and two sinks, with an independent shower and WC. The suites can be equipped with television, DVD and CD player upon request.
Jnane Villa - sleeps 10-14
Jnane Villa, the most recent addition to the Jnane estate, has a lush red foyer and an elegant swimming pool. Situated in its own private Mediterranean gardens, it offers five large en-suite bedrooms with open fireplaces. Downstairs there is a large dining room, a light and airy breakfast room and a living area with library, fireplace and veranda.
The Pavilion - sleeps 4-8
In a separate garden, the Jnane Villa Pavilion has two suites with fireplaces, sitting room and outdoor dining area, as well as its own pool surrounded by lavender and olive trees.
Within all of the houses, there are 'ryads' or interior patio gardens that are reservoirs of fresh air and drifting natural scents. Pools appearing like basins are surrounded by 'bustans' of aromatic plants and fragrant white flowers. Jnane Tamsna's organic fruits and vegetables come from the 'arsat' orchard gardens that combine a date palm canopy, a grove of fruit trees and alternating patches of forage and food plants.
The grounds of Jnane Tamsna are a natural paradise of aromatic herb gardens, olive groves, lemon trees, date palms, vegetable gardens and ornamental flower beds. The landscape architecture is inspired by North African agricultural and horticultural traditions.
Covering nearly nine hectares, the gardens are completely organic with traditional groundwater flow and more contemporary drip irrigation. The cultivated spaces are accessed by pathways and terraces festooned with gardenia, jasmine and white bougainvillea.
There are two large and two small meeting rooms as well as numerous sitting rooms, dining areas and outdoor spaces.
Jnane Tamsna supports community development, cultural diversity and environmental conservation both locally and globally. Since they first arrived in Morocco 25 years ago, they have participated in a wide range of successful efforts to improve education and health for young North Africans.
They continually engage with environmental projects to re-green the Marrakech Medina and Palmeraie. Beyond their own backyard, they invest in Moroccan national and international charitable organizations, including the Global Diversity Foundation.
Global Diversity Foundation promotes agricultural, biological and cultural diversity around the world through research, training and social action.
Rural community and conservation projects build on local traditions and apply that knowledge wherever possible to improve education, health, nutrition and other basic human rights for marginalised peoples.
GDF collaborates closely with local partners to achieve quantifiable results for the maximum benefit of community members from children to elders. The mission of the Global Diversity Foundation is close to Jnane Tamsna’s heart. Co-owner Gary Martin, an ethnobotanist whose creativity and expertise make our gardens truly magnificent, is also the founder and director of GDF.
