The silhouette of La Jaima’s traditional Bedouin outline has been gracing the southern Spanish skyline for centuries. The Moorish influence carries through to the reds and greens of the interior and the gorgeous carving of the lanterns throughout La Jaima. The tent is carefully designed for all weathers, with a double wall that preserves the interior temperature but can be rolled up to let in the breeze. If it’s too hot of course, just jump into the pool.
While La Jaima is a part of Refugio Marnes, a sustainably operated lodge, it is privately sited so you can soak up the total peace, but this does mean that there is a two minute walk from the parking spot to the tent up a steep donkey track. While it is in the wilds of nature and you may see the odd creature here and there, the tent is fully equipped with its own private kitchen and bathroom facilities and lavishly deecked out with a canopy bed and colourful soft furnishings.
The area around La Jaima is perfect for everything from rock climbing to pure relaxation. Ask the guys at Refugio Marnes about local walks, horse riding, day trips to the coast and winding cycle routes.
