Kasbah Tamadot: Sir Richard Branson’s Moroccan Retreat

During an excursion to the village of Imlil in the Atlas Mountains, our driver suggested a stop off at Kasbah Tamadot. Kasbah Tamadot is Sir Richard Branson’s Moroccan retreat, based high in the Atlas Mountains boasting magnificent views, amazing architecture, beautiful gardens and an incredible showcase of Moroccan inspired interior design.

A night’s stay in the hotel’s cheapest room, the ‘Superior Room’, starts at 5975 Moroccan Dirham (about £430), way out of most people’s budget. However, the kind hosts at Kasbah Tamadot are happy to show you around their luxury residence. Initially, it feels strange to take a tour around a working hotel, but soon you realise that Tamadot is well worth a short visit en route to the mountains.

Although we wouldn’t suggest a trip up into the Atlas Mountains to take a tour around Kasbah Tamadot, here at Marrakech Raid, we highly recommend a trip to the Atlas Mountains for their spectacular views and unprecedented insight into rural Berber life. Indeed, we highly recommend that during your trip to Imlil, you suggest a stop at this luxury hotel to take in the views and a few interior design ideas for the scrapbook.
