Millis Potter Insight
Without a doubt, Amenjena appeals to many potential guests. All in all, it’s all about space and privacy here. The rooms are comparatively vast, many with their own pool. You can spend a week here or longer. Although this may be true, the rooms are of a minimalist style which doesn’t always appeal to all guests.
Equally important is that the resort tends to be really quiet. In other words, most guests keep to the seclusion of their Pavilion or Maison. That said, this means it very much lives up to its name ‘Peaceful Paradise’. Therefore, if you like the style of Aman hotels, you will love Amanjena. Specifically, the ability to return from the bustle of the souks to this peacefulness is something we can definitely recommend!
