We stayed with Meryanne at Jnane Tamsna and it was one of the best hotel experiences for my boyfriend and I. We were looking for a quiet and relaxing weekend getaway and Jnane Tamsna was like a home away from home – peaceful, welcoming and indulgent. Arriving on our first night at a rather late hour, we were still warmly greeted by Meryanne herself and her beautiful Rhodesian Ridgeback, Diva. We ended up having most of our meals at the hotel itself as the food was delicious - it felt entirely home-cooked, fresh and hearty. There were a few guests around including a young family, and we ended up making friends with most of them. However, the hotel grounds were expansive and it did feel like there was no one there but us at the same time. There were plenty of places for you to lounge around and fall asleep in the sun or read a book.
The hotel staff were so accommodating and warm, and were excellent in arranging a host of activities for the guests, including an awesome camel ride around the land surrounding the hotel. I remember relaxing on one of the sun beds on the hotel roof and deciding to return to my room quickly to grab a book. When I had returned to the sun bed after 5 minutes of being away, one of the staff had discreetly placed some additional pillows on the sunbed for me. Another incredibly thoughtful gesture of their hospitality and generosity was when they offered to let us stay in our hotel room until it was time for us to leave for the airport for our return flight back to London, which was late in the evening.
The rooms did not have any locks on them but don't let this deter you - the hotel is so safe, staff are watchful and they also provide in-room security safes for your valuables. If anything, it added to the familiar and homely atmosphere of the hotel.
I’m not one to return to places I’ve stayed before, but I would return to Jnane Tamsna in a heartbeat to stay again with Meryanne and her lovely staff. We loved every minute of our time there.It was a luxurious hotel but more importantly, full of heart.
