An exquisite Atlas Mountain retreat near Asni, the luxurious, boutique Kasbah Tamadot combines relaxation with adventure in a stylish, indulgent and authentic setting. The image of the hotel's infinity pool is iconic with views across the valley below.
Kasbah Tamadot is an authentically styled boutique property less than an hour from Marrakech. Dramatically set in the foothills of the Atlas Mountains and with stunning views towards Jebel Toubkal, the highest peak in north Africa, and a steep lush river valley below, the Kasbah is a walled retreat with peaceful courtyards and landscaped gardens. Its attentive staff come from the surrounding Berber villages, giving a wonderful community feeling.
Within the Kasbah’s walls, the eighteen individually styled rooms and suites, as well as the common areas, are decorated with an eclectic mix of Arabian, Indian and Far Eastern antiques and artefacts. These have been lovingly collected over time by the Kasbah's former owner, a renowned interior designer and antiques dealer. Located in the gardens are ten stunning and spacious Berber Tents, some with their own Jacuzzi.
Enjoy the chef's freshly prepared Moroccan and international dishes in one of the bars or in the stunning main restaurant, Kanoun, or even on the Kasbah's roof terrace. For romantics, private dining is possible at any of the secluded locations in the Kasbah and its gardens. Ingredients are sourced locally and menus change according to the season.
There is a wide range of activities available at Kasbah Tamadot. During the school holidays and over selected dates the activities available for children are endless and include treasure hunts, mule trekking, Moroccan tea parties, pool parties and getting to know the Kasbah's menagerie of camels, mules and donkeys. For those seeking pampering and relaxation, the Asounfou Spa and Hammam await and offer a world-class retreat with a full range of holistic treatments available. There are also two swimming pools - an outdoor horizon pool overlooking the mountains and a stunning indoor oasis of calm.
At Kasbah Tamadot, each room has a descriptive Berber name which tells you something unique about it and all are individually designed and decorated. Moroccan antique furnishings and traditional fabrics are used throughout, as well as objets d'art from around the world. The ten spacious Berber Tents are a unique experience and all have private decks, while some have Jacuzzis, offering views out to the Atlas Mountains.

Children's menus and babysitting are also available on request.

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.
