Roses at Palais Amani

Roses are a timeless symbol of love and beauty. At Palais Amani we are enjoying their stunning blooms from our rooftop terrace by growing roses over there and having  the ability to control the growing environment. Our gardener “Ba Sellam “selects the right rose varieties and provide them with the necessary nutrients and care. We do usually pick vibrant and fragrant roses to decorate the rooms for our hosts, to welcome honeymooners and to use them in our special dishes.

In sweet savoury tajines, or couscous dishes the rose’s floral notes harmonize smoothly with the earthy spices and succulent meats. It creates a harmonious balance that tantalizes the senses. Likewise, in traditional Moroccan pastries, rose water and rose petal preserves lend an enchanting touch, elevating simple ingredients into decadent confections.
