Why we like it
- Kasbah Tamadot is set in the breathtaking High Atlas Mountains midway between two traditional Berber villages
- Accommodation choices include suites with terraces and Berber Tents with Jacuzzi
- The Kanoun restaurant serves traditional Moroccan and Berber specialties, including ksra, an authentic, artisan bread
- The Asounfou Spa offers a full range of treatments for both men and women, as well as a traditional Moroccan Hammam
- The Kasbah has a heated outdoor infinity pool, complete with stunning views, as well as an indoor pool
- We recommend the Berber Tented Suites for a taste of Berber life, and the added luxury of a private Jacuzzi
On a cloudless night the sky is jammed with more stars than eyes can take and the moon shines so brightly that the Kasbah has a magical glow. Head to the roof terrace for some star spotting and moon exploration with the telescope (not that you need one!).
Bought by Sir Richard Branson in 1998 during one of his famous ballooning expeditions, Kasbah Tamadot is set in the foothills of the Atlas Mountains one hour's drive from Marrakech, Morocco. The hotel is part of Virgin Limited Edition, a portfolio of unique retreats.
Kasbah Tamadot has 28 bedrooms and suites including six luxury Berber Tented Suites. All are individually decorated using traditional Moroccan furnishings and antiques, as well as items from the vast collection of Luciano Tempo, Kasbah Tamadot's former owner. As a renowned antiques dealer and interior designer, Luciano brought together artefacts from all over the world, many of which feature in the bedrooms. Each room has a uniquely descriptive Berber name.
The wonderfully appointed hotel is ideal as a relaxed retreat, or as a base from which to explore Marrakech and the beautiful Atlas region - by foot, 4x4 or by mule. Facilities and activities include tennis courts, table tennis, a gym, picnics in the hills and day trips.
Best time to be there
Morocco is warm and sunny year round. The best time to visit is mid-February to June and September to December. Coastal Morocco is cooled by sea breezes. The peaks of the Atlas Mountains are snow-capped for most of the year.
