Riad Jaaneman boutique hotel – Marrakech
Jaaneman is an elegant boutique hotel in the bohemian heart of the Marrakech medina. It is a refined oasis of urbane flamboyance and sophistication, a stone’s throw away from the timeless bustle of the souks and the vibrant rhythms of the city. Classical style meets eclectic harmony in a soft symphony of delicate refinement, indulgent comfort and impeccably tailored service.
Jaaneman is an Indian word that literally means ‘Soul of Me’ but translates into ‘My love’ or ‘darling’. Swept away in the soft shadows of the ancient city where poetry flickers by candlelight, one can almost hear it whisper.
Jaaneman offers 5 individually decorated suites, each with their own loving touch. Experience the art deco as it flourishes with the fusion of oriental enchantment and cutting edge design. All have en-suite marble bathrooms with the finest Italian fittings.
NEFELIBATA SUITE: Nefelibata literally means “cloud-walker”, one who defies the conventions of society, literature and art to weave an ethereal life through their own imagination. African hints dominate the bedroom and the two walk-in dressing rooms, while the ensuite bathroom is a fusion of Emperor marble and gleaming chrome fixtures.
GEMEAUX SUITE: Meaning Gemini or the ‘twins’, this opulent suite overlooks the central courtyard. Its twin windows are wonderfully luminous and deep red accents swirl softly throughout, culminating in the sumptuous red marble bathroom which also boasts a discreet but invigorating skylight.
LEALE SUITE: Meaning “honest and trustworthy” in Italian, the Leale suite comes with its own private courtyard. Tranquillity and reflection dance through the soft trickles of its fountain and a lavish bedroom is complimented by the Italian white marble and dusky Moroccan Tadelakt of the bathroom.
PARTENOPE SUITE: Partenope is the ancient Greek name for Naples, birthplace of the Italian owner and the bedroom is sprinkled with Neapolitan art and furniture throughout. It is a Mediterranean marriage of Italy to Morocco while the spacious bathroom is cast in emerald South American marble and ebony Moroccan tadelakt.
HIMA SUITE: Hima translates as the secret places where birds repose during a long migration – free from predators and free from danger. The ceiling is frescoed in classical Moroccan style and birdsong flows softly in from the courtyard while the bathroom is polished in granite and tobacco tadelakt.
