Our favourite rooms
Accommodation is spread out across five separate houses in the hotel grounds. The Garden rooms in Morocco-meets-Rajasthan Moussafir house have obvious allure, due to their spacious ground-floor layout, verandahs and use of a shared private garden with access to the roof terrace. Two of these rooms, Calligraphy and Casablanca, have separate living areas. Throughout Jnane Tamsna’s five houses, Large and Garden rooms can accommodate up to two extra beds for under-13s, and interconnecting room options are available across room grades. Some rooms have working fireplaces; each one is different, though they all share the same Moroccan-influenced decor.
There are five small pools dotted around the grounds at Jnane Tamsna: supervised children are allowed in all of them, but be aware that they're unheated, not fenced and there are no lifeguards. For not-quite-water-babies, the hotel can supply an inflatable splash pool for infants and toddlers (May–October).
Massages, reflexology and beauty treatments are available either in your room or at the small spa. Jnane Tamsna can also ferry you to a fanastic hammam just five minutes' drive away, for more pampering pleasures.
Clothes laundry (and pressing) is available free.
For the services of a nanny, book at least eight days ahead. Allow 48 hours or more for arranging spa treatments. To secure babysitting, give at least 24 hours’ notice. It's worth sorting out any bucket-list activities ahead of arrival too, especially in the school holidays.
Well-behaved dogs are permitted free in some rooms only. Just let the hotel know when booking.
