On your Morocco vacation, immerse yourself in the country’s vibrant culture with Moroccan cooking classes, authentic donkey treks, candlelit dinners for two, late-night stargazing, and overnight stays in a lavish Berber tent.
Tucked away in the magical foothills of the Atlas Mountains, you will find Kasbah Tamadot – an enchanting Moroccan castle owned by business magnate, Sir Richard Branson. With rich and exaggerated colours, palatial architecture, an unusual landscape with unforgettable views, and facilities fit for royalty, staying here is like something out of a fairytale. Just 45 minutes outside of Marrakech, this incredibly peaceful landscape feels worlds away from the hustle and bustle of the city.
Not only is Kasbah Tamadot one of our Goway Stays of Distinction, it is featured in our 12-Day Signature Morocco – Holiday of a Lifetime, making your Morocco vacation a memorable and exotic luxury travel experience.
Magical Moroccan Architecture
Kasbah Tamadot is a luxury hotel surrounded by green mountains, verdant gardens, and an endless starry sky. Peach castle walls blend in with the natural surroundings and reveal cobbled courtyards, castle turrets, winding staircases, beautifully carved doors and ceilings, and vast interiors filled with exquisite old-world tapestries. In fact, it’s so unreal, it feels as though a Disney princess is about to step out of the front doors at any time. The rooms are extremely spacious and spill out onto large verandas and terraces which offer spectacular views of the surroundings. Stunning Berber tents are dotted around the estate, with billowing material ceilings and exclusive Moroccan décor. With such luxuriously appointed rooms at Kasbah Tamadot, you’ll always be looking forward to bedtime.
Starlit Romance and Outdoor Cinema
At Kasbah Tamadot, romance is always in the air. With a twinkling ceiling of stars and a dreamlike landscape, there is no better place to spend your wedding or honeymoon – or simply get away to rekindle the romance. Treat yourself to a luxurious Moroccan couple’s massage or traditional Moroccan Hammam at the Asounfou Spa, and feel the stress slowly slip away.
Dining at Kasbah Tamadot is a one-of-a-kind experience, whether you choose to sample decadent Moroccan cuisine at Kanoun Restaurant, unwind on the rooftop terrace, or prefer a more intimate setting for two. Step-by-step cooking classes mean you can bring a little piece of paradise home with you, while Moroccan-themed outdoor movie nights allow you to cuddle up close under the stars.
Adventurous Activities for Young & Old
There is plenty to keep you busy at Kasbah Tamadot on your Morocco vacation. Challenge your fellow travellers to a good-natured game of tennis or ping pong, discover the sights of a nearby national park, or visit a local village and admire the traditional Berber homes that can be found in this rural corner of the globe. Mountain mule treks are truly an adventure where guests can head off to explore the riverbanks, walk through a nearby village, or explore the vegetated hills behind the hotel. These unusual adventures are led by English-speaking guides and offer exceptional views of the landscape.
Helping the Local Community
What makes Kasbah Tamadot so different is its undeniable aim to help the local community. With 90% of its staff made up of local Berber people, you can rest assured that your stay is one that benefits the locals. When he set up the hotel, Richard Branson decided to make use of the resources available to him, literally on the hotel doorstep, and set up English classes regardless of whether they chose to work at the hotel or not. Goway’s Kasbah Tamadot – Stay of Distinction offers travellers to “Pack with a Purpose” (which encourages guests to pack a little extra in their suitcase to donate to local families), and recognition for the Eve Branson Foundation which is headed by Richard Branson’s mother herself. This worthy charity aims to improve the living standards in local communities by organizing exciting and beneficial events from carpet workshops to craft houses, where items created by the locals can be sold to guests. These handmade items are on sale in the hotel gift shop and proceeds go towards the local community.
