Appointments include a diverse mixture of decorative influences including inlaid chests, fireplaces, canopy beds, private terraces, Senegalese textiles, Berber rugs and Asian silks. Choices available as follows:

  • Jnane House - offers a total of ten bedrooms, combining the architecture and layout of the traditional 'riad' (courtyard house) with the spaciousness of a country home. The first courtyard gives access to comfortable, intimate living and dining rooms. There are six bedrooms on the garden level, four of them around a second courtyard and an additional four bedrooms on the upper-level, opposite a wide roof terrace. 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.

In a separate garden, the Jnane Salmia Pavilion has two suites with fireplaces, sitting room and outdoor dining area, as well as its own pool surrounded by lavender and olive trees.
  • The Gardens - 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. Within 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. 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.
  • Cookery Classes - Individual cookery classes are available with house chef Bahija.
