Kasbah Tamadot

Marrakesh, Morocco

Located an hour outside of Marrakesh in the foothills of the Atlas Mountains, Kasbah Tamadot is a stunning Moroccan retreat surrounded by beautiful courtyards and manicured gardens. The property is owned by Richard Branson, who invested as much in the design and detail -- 28 rooms have billowing curtains, sumptuous fabrics, custom furnishings and traditional Moroccan tile work -- as he did in his expert staff, hired locally whenever possible. At Kanoun Restaurant, which focuses on regional dishes, don’t miss the merguez sausage paired with aromatic couscous.
