Kasbah Tamadot is a luxurious hotel in the Atlas mountians which was bought by Sir Richard Branson during one of his ballooning expeditions.
Located near the mountain village of Asni, about 45 minutes drive from Marrakech. Each of the 24 rooms and suites has been individually decorated to reflect the architecture of the building and features antiques from all over the world, where the spirit and traditional charm of Moroccan design is beautifully infused with contemporary elements.
The Main Building has 28 rooms and suites (10 tented suites). The Master Suite, located a few minutes walk away at the end of the garden, has three rooms including the Deluxe Pool Suite and is generally hired privately as a 3 bedroom cottage. All rooms are equipped with the usual items you would expect of a luxury hotel such as bath robes, CD-players, hairdryers, etc. Televisions with DVD players also are available on request.
Situated in the spectacular Atlas Mountains in Morocco, Kasbah Tamadot was bought by Sir Richard Branson during one of his ballooning expeditions. To the north extends a steep river valley with sheer rocky limestone and forested mountains, contrasting with the view of the breathtaking, snow-capped peaks of the Atlas Mountains on the southern side. To the east, across the river, you can see a traditional Berber village built into the side of the mountain in keeping with the landscape. Within the grounds is a beautiful garden of specimen fruit trees, a collection of cacti and a rambling rose garden.
Kasbah Tamadot is approximately 45-minutes drive from Marrakech Airport and approximately 1 hour from central Marrakech in the Atlas Mountains just beyond the village of Asni. From the outdoor pool you can meander along pretty garden paths to our tennis courts and to 5 of the Berber Tented Suites. The rooftop is complete with breathtaking views and a seating area where drinks can be served.
The grounds have been planted with a huge variety of evergreen and flowering plants. Within the stepped landscape is the pool complex; an upper terrace is surrounded by Greek columns and features a bar, while a grand staircase leads down to the infinity pool, reflecting the sky and affording spectacular views to the valley below and mountains above. Surrounding the pool edge are loungers, along with chairs and tables for relaxation throughout the day.
