A purposeful sense of mystery surrounds this walled retreat in the Atlas mountains of Morocco. Kasbah Tamadot only reveals itself to the lucky few passing through its heavy wooden doors. Bought by Sir Richard Branson in 1998 during one of his famous ballooning expeditions, Kasbah Tamadot is set at the foothills of the Atlas Mountains one hour's drive from Marrakech, Morocco.
For vistas mapped and enjoyed by owner Sir Richard Branson, opt for one of the tented rooms. Golden hues amplify the fragrance of flowers and fresh herbs hanging in the air around the 27 bedrooms and suites of Sir Richard Branson's Kasbah Tamadot hotel. Whether you choose to stay in the heart of the retreat, or follow the paths through the herb gardens to the ten 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.
True to form, this Virgin Limited Edition property offers a balance of leisurely activities and more exciting endeavors that extend far beyond a dip in of the pool or a quick tennis match on the private courts. Everything from 4x4 adventures to mule rides in the mountains - and even a hot air balloon ride over Marrakech - is available to guests.
And of course, one would be remiss to visit North Africa and not experience a Hammam - a traditional Moroccan skin cleansing ritual.
