Sir Richard's splendid retreat, Kasbah Tamadot, is perched dramatically on a hilltop and surrounded by the peaks of the High Atlas mountains. The hotel sits at an elevation of 1,320m above sea level and overlooks a valley whose river ebbs and flows with the seasons. On a clear day you can see Mount Toubkal, the Atlas' highest peak. A magical walled complex near Asni, in the High Atlas, Kasbah Tamadot is all peaceful courtyards, intriguing staircases, landscaped gardens and breathtaking views. This magical hotel boasts 27 stunning bedrooms and suites. Ninety percent of the staff are from the local Berber villages and add to the feeling of staying in a private home. The extensive gardens are carefully landscaped with rose, fruit and cactus plants. Whether you choose to stay in the heart of the retreat, or follow the paths through the herb gardens to the luxury Berber Tented Suites, you will be delighted to discover traditional Moroccan furnishings and antiques as well as rare artifacts from all over the world adorning the walls.
Kasbah Tamadot is a one-hour drive from Marrakech, while Marrakech airport is only 45 minutes away by car. Road and helicopter transfers are available on request.
