Meet Morocco’s only Black female hotel owner
The Jnane Tamsna is a boutique hotel in Marrakech, Morocco. What makes it even more special is that it’s owned and run by a black woman: MeryAnne Loum-Martin.
Luom Martin, born in Cote d’Ivoire, started out as a lawyer, an experience that would teach her how to look at things differently and to bring in her diverse culture.
“Being different was a way for me to succeed. I started to look at my difference as wealth. As people of color, our varied cultural traditions are an incredible wealth, ” she told the Essence Magazine.
It is the same vision that saw her create a diverse yet enriching ambiance at the Jnane Tamsna, which she runs with her husband Dr. Gary Martin. The 40-room hotel does not have a TV nor does it offer room service, as a way to encourage the guests to enjoy the gardens.
