Atlas Mountains, Morocco
Welcome to Kasbah Tamadot, a magical retreat in Morocco’s High Atlas Mountains. This 28 bedroom and suite property is ideal for rest and relaxation.
Kasbah Tamadot is perched at the top of a valley with views up to Mount Toubkal and over to some of the traditional Berber villages that dot the region. The property itself is a delightful collection of tiled courtyards and gardens and features a stunning infinity pool. Everywhere you look you’ll discover unique pieces of art, exquisitely carved doors and ceilings, tapestries and much more as you explore the grounds.
Kasbah Tamadot can be divided into four areas. The main building contains 15 original rooms and suites, an indoor pool, spa, a library, reflecting pool, restaurant and bar, roof terrace and main reception. Just off the main courtyard is the Asmoun Lounge. Adjacent to the main building is the heated outdoor infinity pool, hot tub, amphitheatre, sundeck, gym, spa treatment room and a collection of fruit trees.
On the far side of the infinity pool from the main building is the 3-bedroom Master Suite. This miniature version of Kasbah Tamadot has a private pool and is ideal for families. Continue exploring past the Master Suite and you’ll find our gardens, tennis courts, mule shed and Berber Tents. There are ten tents, six of which have private hot tubs, and all have spacious decks and views over the valley and the mountains. You’re also invited to get to know Kasbah Tamadot’s resident camels, mules and donkeys - who live just beyond the tennis courts.
Each of the stunning 28 rooms and suites has been individually decorated and features antiques from all over the world, where the spirit and traditional charm of Moroccan design is beautifully infused with contemporary elements, creating an ambience of luxurious serenity and a hint of exotic adventure. The extensive grounds are filled with intriguing staircases, peaceful courtyards and landscaped gardens to explore. Employing local staff from the surrounding villages, Kasbah Tamadot gives guests a sense of staying in a Moroccan home rather than vacation rental.
Superior Rooms: There are three Superior rooms, one looks out over the front courtyard, the other into an interior courtyard and the third forms part of the three bedroom Master Suite and has a large terrace and spectacular views over the Atlas Mountains. The Superior Room in the Master Suite can only be booked separately within 2 months prior to arrival.
Deluxe Room: All seven Deluxe Rooms have a balcony or terrace. One of the Deluxe Rooms forms part of the Master Suite and interconnects with the Deluxe Suite with pool (Kasbah Tamadot's only interconnecting room). All Deluxe Rooms have a garden, pool or mountain view, the smaller the room in this category the better the view.
Superior Suites: All four Superior Suites offer a private balcony or terrace and are typically larger in size than the Deluxe Rooms, again the smaller the room in this category the better the view. Superior Suites have a sitting area and are more private, they can also accommodate a roll away bed for 1 child.
Deluxe Suites: Of the rooms in the main building our three Deluxe Suites occupy the premium locations for views of the valley and Atlas Mountains. Larger in size and with a sitting room, the smaller the suite in this category the better the view. These Suites can accommodate a roll away bed for 1 child.
Deluxe Suite with Pool: Offering wonderful uninterrupted views of the Atlas Mountains, this room is located on the ground floor of The Master Suite and has its own private pool with a large terrace, sun loungers, table and chairs. With a separate living room, floor to ceiling windows and patio doors leading out to the pool terrace, this room can only be booked separately within 2 months prior to arrival.
Berber Tents: The 4 tented suites are perched on the hillside with stunning views across the Atlas Mountain range and the valley below. Each tent features a king-size bed, large bathtubs for soaking while you gaze over the mountains, a terrace, sun loungers and outdoor dining.
Berber Tents with Private Hot Tub: Perched on the hillside overlooking a pretty valley below, the six Berber Tented Suites offer stunning views of the Atlas Mountains. The suites are located a short stroll through the herb and vegetable garden and all have views of Mount Toubkal, the Atlas' highest peak. All are perfect for those looking for a little more luxury adventure. Each tent features a king-size bed, large bathtubs for soaking while you gaze over the mountains, a terrace with private jaccuzi, sun loungers and outdoor dining.
Master Suites: The Master Suite is a miniature version of The Kasbah sitting out on a promontory and featuring three special rooms. Located near the glorious infinity pool the master suite more is ideal for families and features three bedrooms, a terrace and a private swimming pool. The building itself is rich in architectural detail and affords complete privacy. Within there is a Deluxe Room and a Deluxe Suite at the lower level with a private pool, both generously laid out. These rooms can interconnect. On the upper floor is a compact Superior Room with a huge roof terrace. This configuration is perfect for a larger party, or those seeking a true escape and complete privacy.
The extensive grounds are filled with staircases, courtyards and gardens. Getting yourself orientated will be time-consuming but exciting! The grounds have been planted with a huge variety of evergreen and flowering plants. Within the stepped landscape is the pool complex; the upper terrace is where lunch is usually served and features a bar, while a grand staircase leads down to the infinity pool, reflecting the sky and affording views to the valley below and mountains above.
With an intimate fireside bar for pre-dinner cocktails and a stunning dining area complete with wonderful views, Kanoun restaurant serves delicious local and international cuisine. If the weather is right, dine al fresco next to the beautiful infinity pool bar, on the rooftop terrace underneath the stars, or somewhere private just for two. Breakfast is included within your accommodation rate and this is served in Kanoun or on the terrace next to the pool bar (weather permitting). In addition to freshly baked bread and pastries, juices and fruit, you are welcome to order cooked dishes and Moroccan specialities from the à la carte menu. We can also arrange for breakfast to be brought to your room. Lunch is usually a very casual affair served around the pool or at the pool bar (weather permitting). There are shaded areas available if you want to take a break from the sun and enjoy a light meal. In the evenings the menu and the setting will vary. Join fellow guests for pre-dinner drinks before dining in the main restaurant, on the roof terrace, by the pool terrace, or even around the reflecting pool. Our à la carte menu is always available, but we also serve traditional Berber feasts family style as well as multiple course tasting menus with Moroccan and international themes. We also recommend you try the local Moroccan wines.
A dip in the heated outdoor infinity pool is an irresistible part of any stay at Kasbah Tamadot. There are plenty of loungers for sunbathing and a drinks list so you can order what you want from the bar. There is also a large hot tub adjacent to the pool.
Just off the reflecting pool is the library which has a cosy seating area, books, a TV, DVD player and DVDs, games and a log fire to snuggle up next to in winter. Afternoon tea is often served here in the cooler months.
In the Berber language, Asmoun means ‘a place to get together or meet’, and the lounge is a great place to take in the views over the valley, spend a relaxing afternoon reading a book by the fireplace, or enjoy a pre-dinner cocktail. The lounge is equipped with a pool table, satellite TV, DVD player, music system and a fully stocked honesty bar.
“Asounfou” is the Berber word meaning relaxation. To make your experience at Kasbah Tamadot even more tranquil and memorable indulge in one of our signature treatments at the Asounfou Spa.
Spend time in our traditional Moroccan Hammam. The Hammam is based on the weekly Moroccan cleansing ritual which will give you a deep cleanse, purify and soften the skin. Black soap is applied to cleanse the skin followed by an exfoliation of the whole body with a mitt. Whilst the mask is applied to the body your hair will be shampooed and conditioned and scalp massaged. The end result is rejuvenated, awakened skin and your mind and body will be totally relaxed. A definite must if you’re visiting Kasbah Tamadot!
Kasbah Tamadot is approximately 45 minutes’ drive southeast from Marrakech Airport in Morocco (about 1 hour from central Marrakech). Located in the foothills of the High Atlas Mountains, the nearest village is Asni which is along the route to Imlil and Mount Toubkal, North Africa’s highest peak.

During spring Kasbah Tamadot has so much to offer: snow-capped mountains, warm days by the pool and walking in the foothills of the Toubkal National Park. As we enter July the heat during the day continues to increase and by August we are very much a ‘hot sun’ destination, but a pleasant 10°C cooler than the high temperatures in Marrakech. In the autumn months the evenings start to cool and the days become a little less intense heat-wise. You can see all seasons in one day at this time of year so a variety of clothing is advised! Winter has to be the most social time of year at Kasbah Tamadot. The sun still shines during the day and with the pools at a comfortable 28°C, a middle of the day swim is the norm!
