Travelista73: Bohemian Opulence in the High Atlas

November 22, 2011

Every once and a while I come across a hotel property that truly takes my breath away; a place that fuels my passion for travel and gives new breath to my hopes and dreams. Sir Richard Branson’s Moorish-style hideaway, Kasbah Tamadot, did just that!

Fragrant orange and jasmine filled gardens provide a magical backdrop for this striking walled retreat perched dramatically on a hilltop surrounded by the peaks of the High Atlas.

Kasbah Tamadot only reveals itself to the lucky guests passing through its carved and inlaid gates that open up to reveal the ultimate luxury in the heart of Morocco’s most spectacular mountains.

The extensive gardens are beautifully landscaped with rose, fruits and cactus plants. The property also features an indoor pool, courtyards and 5-star spa. There is also a stunning infinity pool, plentiful sundecks, a separate mini-kasbah for families, and some astonishing tented accommodations for that North African luxe safari vibe.

Whether you choose to stay in the heart of the retreat or follow the paths through the aromatic herb gardens to the ten luxury Berber Tented Suites you will delighted to discover traditional Moroccan furnishings and antiques as well as rare artefacts from all over the world adorning the walls.

Surrounded by this profusion of bohemian opulence one can’t help but ask if this was perhaps where the term ‘Heaven on Earth’ came into existence…
