Inspired by the rose-hued buildings of old Marrakech, palatial Amanjena is close to the fabled Red City. Spend time relaxing by private pools, visiting the otherworldly landscape of the Agafay dunes or rejuvenating inside Amanjena’s serene spa.
Enjoy a private outdoor painting lesson with a local artist surrounded by the sounds of birdsong and babbling streams. In a peaceful forest glade, learn the ancient art of pattern dyeing, traditionally used for decorating kimonos, and be inspired by nature in the making of postcards for distant loved ones.
Experience Kyoto and its many temples, shrines and gardens from the air with a 15–25-minute personalised helicopter tour. Take off just a few minutes’ drive from the resort, where the golden Kinkaku-ji temple will appear below you almost immediately. As you fly over the Kamigamo Shrine, marvel at the beauty of this ancient capital, the ancient Shinto sanctuary on the banks of the Kamo River, Lake Biwa and the impeccably preserved ward of Higashiyama on the lower slopes of Kyoto’s eastern mountain.
