Kasbah Tamadot was bought by Sir Richard Branson during preparations for one of his famous ballooning expeditions in the late 1990’s, and opened as a luxury boutique hotel in 2005.
The kasbah is situated in stunning surroundings in the foothills of the High Atlas Mountains, 45 minutes' drive south of Marrakech.
With only 28 rooms and suites, set around two internal courtyards, the atmosphere is relaxed and intimate. Surrounding the kasbah are beautiful terraced gardens full of fruit trees, cacti and roses.
Guests can enjoy an extensive range of facilities, including indoor and outdoor swimming pools, sundecks, two floodlit tennis courts, a gym, sauna, hammam and a spa offering a range of treatments. The property has been immaculately restored using traditional Moroccan materials and decor, alongside contemporary interiors.
The restaurant serves Moroccan and international cuisine and is overseen by a chef who trained at Raymond Blanc's Manoir aux Quat' Saisons. There is also a rooftop bar with al fresco dining and fantastic views. Additional activities include horse-riding and a variety of day trips or longer excursions in the mountains and beyond.
The kasbah's mountain location means that it gets very chilly in the evenings, but the staff will gladly provide blankets to enable you to stay snug while sitting outside.
