Weddings 

In a place where rose petals in fountains is a daily occurrence, weddings at Amanjena are effortlessly filled with romance and charm. Usually celebrated over several days, marital traditions include the giving of traditional gifts such as sugar, milk and flowers, relaxing hammam purification and beauty rituals, and other bonding experiences such as tea ceremonies and the application of mehndi (henna) in the lead up to the event. Say your vows beside the vast reflective bassin at the property’s heart, then dance until dawn, when a celebratory breakfast is served with the rising sun.
