Kerry Willmer (Staff)

As soon as I entered the Kasbah Tamadot I felt really relaxed, it was nice to breath in the fresh mountain air.

In the evenings on a clear night you can see hundreds of stars light up the sky, you can wander down to the pool terrace bar where a flame feature creates a special atmosphere.
