In the Hearth of the Atlas Mountains
Part of the Virgin Limited Edition of Sir Richard Branson, Kasbah Tamadot opens its doors to luxury, elegance and refinement in the heart of a superb valley hidden in the Atlas Mountains and guarded by the snowy Djebel Toubkal. Designed like one of the typical adobe forts of the region, Kasbah Tamadot is the most exclusive hotel in the environs of Marrakech and is located at a distance of only 45 minutes from the ancient imperial capital.
Situated in a gorgeous place, Kasbah Tamadot, decked out with distinguished, delicate Moroccan and Hindu antiques, is a place to enjoy life to the fullest in a sensuous Moroccan style. Its restaurant, under the direction of chef Jean Mundell, is considered one of the best in the zone and a place where fusion invents delicate flavors and Moroccan dishes are prepared according to the traditional way with local ingredients and in the manner of the Berbers who live on these lands.
The hot swimming pools, a huge outdoor one, dominated by the view of the mountains, and another inside, protected from the chilly winter weather, are an invitation to relaxation. The hammam (Arabian bath) lets guests pamper body and soul accompanied by relax massages after being scrubbed with black soap and a hard loofah.
The suites feature painted wood roofs and offer a superb view from the balcony. They have a small, cozy living room and a bathroom with tadlac (typical lacquer finish) on the walls and are an unending invitation to relax. The salons bid guests to meditate and the terraces and gardens are the perfect scene in which to enjoy the voluptuousness of a romantic retreat.
Thanks to its location, it is the ideal departure point from which to organize hikes in the mountains and discover Berber towns, the nearby valleys and waterfalls, the local markets and the crafts of the mountains. Marrakech is only 45 minutes away, Essaouira is two hours away and the L’Oukaimeden ski station only 90 minutes away.
Because of its beauty, refinement and surroundings, Kasbah Tamadot conquers the soul of its guests and, like a genuine spell filled with passion, awakens the senses.
It features an indoor swimming pool and an exterior hot swimming pool with snack service, a hamman with the Virgin Touch Salon, two tennis courts, restaurant, bar, terrace, fitness room, bookstore, six “Superior” rooms, five “Junior Suites” and six “Deluxe Suites”.
