Kasbah Tamadot

Morocco, Atlas Mountains

Good for Couples

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.

The hotel has 28 rooms and suites.

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.
Transfer time
1 hour from Marrakech airport.
