Things To Do
British Virgin Islands
We have 28 bedrooms and suites including ten luxury Berber Tents, some of which have private plunge pools. All are individually decorated using traditional Moroccan furnishings and antiques, as well as items from the vast collection of Luciano Tempo, Kasbah Tamadot's former owner. As a renowned antiques dealer and interior designer, Luciano brought together artefacts from all over the world, many of which feature in the bedrooms. Each room has a uniquely descriptive Berber name which tells you something about it.
We have three Superior Rooms; one looks out over the front courtyard, the other into an interior courtyard and the third is one of the three bedrooms in the Master Suite. The Superior Room in the Master Suite can only be booked separately within two months prior to arrival.
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.
All four Superior Suites offer a private balcony or terrace and are typically larger in size than the Deluxe Rooms. They have an open-plan sitting area and most can accommodate a roll away bed for one child.
The Deluxe Suites occupy the premium locations for views of the valley and the Atlas Mountains. They are similar in size to the Superior Suites with an open-plan sitting area. Two of the suites can accommodate a roll away bed for one child.
Our ten luxurious Berber Tents are perfect for those looking for a little more adventure. Soak up the views on your private deck equipped with sun loungers and space for outdoor dining and six suites have their own Jacuzzi. All suites have a king-size bed, large rolltop bath and will earn you extra brownie points if you’re whisking away a special someone for a romantic escape!
This miniature version of the Kasbah offers forever views and has three special rooms, usually booked together. It also has a large terrace and private pool. The building itself is rich in architectural detail and affords complete privacy. Within the Master Suite are a Deluxe Room and a Deluxe Suite at the lower level with a private pool and rooms that can interconnect. On the upper floor is a Superior Room with huge roof terrace. The Master Suite is perfect for a larger party, or those seeking a true escape.

In your room we supply shampoo, conditioner, shower gel, body lotion, bath foam, a hairdryer, direct dial phone, air-conditioning/ heating, mini-bar including some complimentary items, bottled water and bathrobes. Electric Blankets for the winter and Berber Capes are also available for cool nights. Pool towels are provided and we sell sunscreen, cameras and memory cards in case you need them. We also have hair straighteners which are available on request. A guest computer provides internet access free of charge. There are a number of board games and an infinite supply of playing cards.
The gift shop has a small supply of local clothes and jewellery and the library has books for you to take out and enjoy. Please feel free to take a book home if you are half way through it, but please donate another one or leave unwanted books for future guests.
Kasbah Tamadot is a very tranquil hotel and although the rooms have CD players and radios with iPod leads they do not have televisions unless you’re staying in a Berber Tent. Televisions are available if you require one together with a DVD player. We have an extensive CD and DVD library for you to choose from, or alternatively bring your favourite CDs with you to enjoy
Do I need a Visa?
EU passport holders with a passport that is valid for at least 6 months beyond your return date do not require a visa to enter Morocco for tourist purposes. If you hold a passport from outside the European Union we strongly recommend that you check with your nearest Moroccan Embassy.
Can I bring my children?
We love kids at Kasbah Tamadot and welcome them during the following dates:
In some rooms we can accommodate children on rollaway or fold-out beds. Children are welcome to participate in our activities for ‘Kasbah Kids’. We have plenty to keep the young ones entertained including treasure hunts, toys, games, books, DVDs and activities on request. Kasbah Kids doesn’t offer a set programme, but rather a range of activities suitable for every child. Our staff members are happy to help organise activities, but are unable to watch over children at all times. Parental supervision is therefore required for all suggested activities. Babysitting is also available for an extra charge, but advance notice is required to guarantee availability. Special food and beverages (including soft drinks and ice cream) and light meals, such as sandwiches, can be prepared. We offer complimentary soft drinks and ice cream for our younger guests throughout their stay.
Rates for infants and children
Just what is:
An infant? a guest under the age of 6
A child? a guest aged 6 -11
An adult? a guest aged 12 years and over
Children are charged as follows:
Infants stay free of charge providing they share with at least one adult. 1 child sharing a room with 2 adults will be charged MAD 1,120 per night on top of the
Double Occupancy Rate. Look out for our special ‘Kids GoFree’ offer valid at selected times during the year.
How about cash? What's the currency?
The local currency in Morocco is the Dirham. It is not possible to obtain Dirhams outside Morocco however there are cash machines at the airport and in central Marrakech. You can change Sterling, Dollars or Euros into Dirhams at Kasbah Tamadot, but it is illegal for a hotel to change Dirhams back into any other currency. We will accept Sterling, Dollars, Euros, Dirhams or credit cards to settle your bill. You can only change Dirhams back at the airport if you have a receipt from a registered Bureau de Change. Most restaurants and even some of the market stalls in the larger souks accept credit cards. Many places will also take Euros as payment however your change will most likely be in Dirhams. In smaller places or remote areas you will find it much easier to pay in Dirhams. If you are carrying currency to the value of 10,000 Dirhams or more on arrival into Morocco, we strongly recommend you declare this at Customs.
Can I spend Christmas and New Year at Kasbah Tamadot?
Absolutely! Spend Christmas or New Year in the peaceful Atlas Mountains – our all-inclusive offers provide a fantastic alternative to the usual routine. Minimum stay may apply – please ask us for more details.
What's in my room?
A well-stocked mini bar, bottled water, safety deposit box, radio/CD player, CDs, Bose iPod station, hairdryer, hair straighteners (on request), plug adapters, tea and coffee for guests in a Berber Tent, umbrellas, sunhats, Moroccan slippers (called Babouches) that you’re welcome to take with you when you leave, and big windows for those amazing views. Hypoallergenic pillows and duvets are available from Reception on request as well as mattress toppers for extra padding to ensure a perfect night’s sleep. If you fancy watching a bit of TV tucked up snugly in your robe with your Babouches and a glass of something bubbly, we’ll be happy to bring a TV/DVD player to you, or for those staying in a Berber Tent, one will be waiting in your room. The TVs come with a DVD player too so you can borrow one of the DVDs from our selection. If you want to chill out to your own tunes in your room, you can borrow one of our iPod Sound Docks. They are compatible with most iPods apart from the iPod Shuffle. We also have iPod leads in all guest rooms.
What food can I expect?
Our food is fantastic! The food served in Kanoun Restaurant reflects the local heritage, and our chefs will happily prepare a mixture of Moroccan and international dishes. Food is also served on the terrace at the pool bar or can be delivered straight to your room.
What about alcoholic drinks?
Although Islam forbids the consumption of alcohol by Muslims, alcoholic drinks can be legally served and sold throughout the country, though in some restaurants you may need to ask to see the drinks menu. Morocco even produces its own range of wines, some of which are available to try at Kasbah Tamadot, which serves a full selection of beer, wine, and spirits. We are also able to serve alcohol during the holy month of Ramadan.
Do you cater for special diets?
We understand that some people have special requirements and personal favourites too. Let us know in advance, and we’ll do our best to make sure we have exactly what you need.
Can I go to Marrakech for the day, or for dinner?
Absolutely! The centre of Marrakech is only 1 hour away by car from Kasbah Tamadot. If you want to go down to the Medina for some shopping or fancy a night out on the town, we can organise your transfer arrangements at the hotel.
What about the evenings?
It’s really up to you. You can dine in Kanoun Restaurant, sit on the terrace and enjoy a drink under the stars, get comfy in the salon and watch TV or a DVD, or stay in and order room service. For those more intimate occasions we can arrange for you and your partner to have a private dinner. Depending on the weather we will screen movies outdoors in the amphitheatre (headphones supplied!). Check with our team when you book to confirm there will be showings during your stay.
Arrival and departure details
Your room will be available any time after 2pm – just in time for an afternoon snack, a quick dip in the pool or Hammam before dinner. You’re welcome to arrive earlier in the day and we will make every effort to have a room ready for you, but this may not always be possible. If you do want to arrive early and there isn’t a room immediately available, start enjoying yourself anyway – we’ll take care of your bags. Check out is officially 12pm, but if you would like a late checkout, let us know and we’ll see what we can do.
