Sir Richard Branson’s Moroccan Retreat – Kasbah Tamadot
Owned by Richard Branson, Kasbah Tamadot is a luxury, award-winning 5-star resort in Morocco. It’s about 50 minutes from Marrakech in a town called Asni, in the heart of spectacular Atlas Mountains. Perched dramatically on a hilltop, the resort offers stunning views. Opened in 2005, Kasbah Tamadot features extensive gardens with rose, fruit and cactus plants designed to create a truly relaxing atmosphere.
Kasbah Tamadot is the perfect hideaway as guests can spend time being pampered in the spa that offers many different treatments. The indoor pool and courtyards remodelled to find space for a 5-star spa. Off the pool room is a traditional Moroccan Hammam and sauna. There is a shower and changing rooms, along with two treatment rooms. Other activities include mule-riding to the Berber hamlet, guided excursions to the nearby Ourika valley for a fully-fledged hike or a 4×4 trip across the desert.
