I’m always searching for unique experiences and that includes uniques places to stay. No matter how many times you’ve visited a place, something as simple as staying in a new place with new energy, can make you feel like its the first time. I’ve been to Morocco before, and like many people, I stayed in the hustle and bustle of major cities like Marrakech. I had the time of my life, wouldn’t change a thing. However, now that my tastes have changed (and I have a real job that pays lol), I find myself wanting to be a world away from the crowded tourist areas, yet wrapped in the kind of luxury that evokes the spirit of my location and makes me feel at home. Enter Kasbah Tamadot.
Located in Asni, a little village and marketplace in the foothills of the Atlas Mountains in Morocco and only an hour drive from Marrakech, sits Kasbah Tamadot, a stunning award-winning retreat bought by Sir Richard Branson as part of his Virgin Limited Edition collection.
Each of the 28 rooms and suites, including ten luxury Berber Tent, have been individually decorated using traditional Moroccan furnishings and features antiques from all over the world.
Kanoun Restaurant serves delicious local and international cuisine that marries local produce and flavours and is served with a great selection of international and Moroccan wines.
When you’re done exploring the markets and riads of Marrakech, or wandering through the gardens of Kasbah Tamadot, there’s still plenty more to do. Head to Asounfou Spafor a Traditional Moroccan Hammam, support local projects and make a priceless impact on the lives of the local children and families by volunteering with Pack for a Purpose, hike Toubkal National Park, fill your belly with a traditional Moroccan cooking class or take a half day excision to Tadmamte, Ourika Valley and Setti Fatma Waterfalls. If that’s too much activity for you, relax under the stars and enjoy an outdoor movie.
With everything Kasbah Tamadot has to offer, it’s hard to imagine ever wanting to leave. You’ll end up feeling like you’re staying in your very own Moroccan home.
