Inspired by the rose-hued buildings of old Marrakech, palatial Amanjena lies just outside the fabled Red City. Shady courtyards with petal-strewn fountains lead to the central basin that nourishes the gardens in which spacious standalone guest pavilions rest, many with private pools. Views over Amelkis Golf Course extend to the High Atlas Mountains on the horizon.
