Jnane Tamsna recommends having around $200 – 300 (€180 – 270) for shopping, taxis to town depending on your desire to explore and for staff tips. The local currency is Dirham but more places including the hotel accept US dollars and Euros. Most places take credit and debit cards with the exception of the market in Marrakech – many vendors prefer cash.
Jnane Tamsna prides itself in offering quality, organic, healthy meals, served in a style influenced by Moroccan and Mediterranean flavors. Jnane Tamsna is also known for the freshness of its cuisine, using fruits and vegetables harvested from their very own gardens; additional ingredients are sourced from the local markets. While we try to accommodate as many dietary restrictions as possible, for this workshop we can only accommodate gluten free and vegetarian requests.
As for the property, be certain to avail yourself of its many lush gardens and pools, so be certain to bring a bathing suit! On that note, please bring clothes suited for warm weather. Temperatures in Marrakesh in October are expected to be around the mid 80’s (around 30 degrees Celsius). Please not that we will be painting outdoors near the pool!
