Nestled in the foothills of the Atlas Mountains in the small village of Asni, Kasbah Tamadot is one of Sir Richard Branson’s private hideaways. Coming across the home of an antiques dealer and interior designer Luciano Tempo during his round-the-globe hot air balloon journey, Sir Richard was so charmed he purchased the property and eventually opened its doors to guests in 2005. The magical resort boasts 28 luxurious rooms and suites, some with amazing views over the valley and the mountains, and you can even stay in a traditional Berber tent. Enjoy dining al fresco in the romantic setting of the roof terrace, relax by the stunning infinity swimming pool, challenge your friends to a game of pool at the Asmoun Lounge or enjoy a movie under the stars during the open-air cinema nights. A signature hammam treatment in the Asounfou Spa is an experience not to be missed and for those wishing to explore the surrounding area, there is a range of trips available, ranging from short walks to the local village to a trek up Morocco’s highest mountain, Mount Toubkal.
Hotel child prices apply to ages 6-11 years.

About the location
Head south of Agadir and Marrakech, and you’ll soon bump into the Atlas Mountains – a 2,000-kilometre-long range that careers through Morocco, Tunisia and Algeria. This near-mystical region is a mix of stuck-in-time Berber villages and boutique hotels with celebrity credentials. (Richard Branson owns our handpicked hotel here, the Kasbah Tamadot.) And it’s all wrapped in a spectacular landscape of snow-dusted peaks, river gorges, juniper forests and dusty valleys.
Local Mount Toubkal is the highest point in Morocco. It’s best known as one of the only ski resorts in Africa, but you can also hike up to alpine meadows and waterfalls in the summer. Go with a local guide, and you’ll usually get a traditional picnic of lamb tagine and apricot salad, too.
And while the Atlas Mountains might seem a world away from civilisation, the souks and squares of Marrakech are only a 90-minute drive north.
1 hour from Marrakech airport.

It's hard to define what makes a great hotel. I stayed at the Kasbah T for 3 nights with the missus and our 2 grown up children. We loved the hotel and were discussing why we thought this hotel was so fantastic but we couldnt really put our finger on it. We have stayed at some great hotels all round the world and many of them live up to expectations, but this hotel has more, it's a hotel with charisma, The exceptionally friendly staff are never there until you need them, and then they appear quietly from nowhere. It's an absolutely beautiful building. The views are stunning. There are no niggly charges for essentials. There is no fuss. No noise. I swear the fairies clean the hotel because although it's spotless you never see anyone cleaning or gardening. Everything is relaxed and understated. The detail is incredible. There was an outdoor movie one evening using wireless headphones so non film goers would not be disturbed,and the film of course was - Casablanca! The gardens are beautifully planted and are inhabited with ducks, peacocks, turtles and doves they were surly modelled on the garden of Eden. Want to feed the donkey's and goats? There is a pair of gloves and some chopped apples always there outside the stables. I could go on but I won't. It is the best hotel I have ever stayed in, and I want to go back!

My family and I stayed here for 6 nights. At this hotel, nothing is too much to ask for. Everyone is really friendly. The rooms were always clean and we never saw anyone clean them, incredibly discrete staff. The dinner venue changes every night. Eating under the stars was really magical. The food has something for everyone. We also did a cooking lesson which was really great and the chef was really helpful. There are animal sheds, tennis courts, spa, movie nights... although most people are only here for a short time you won't be short of something to do even for 6 nights. I wouldn't rate the spa that highly - treatments started 10 minutes late and finished 5 minutes early. However other than that I really recommend this hotel for the most beautiful scenery and surroundings you could possibly imagine.
