Kasbah Tamadot takes the top spot for third year in the prestigious Travel + Leisure World's Best Awards 2020

9th July 2020

Virgin Limited Edition is delighted to announce that Kasbah Tamadot, has again been named the No. 1 Resort Hotel in North Africa and the Middle East in the Travel + Leisure World's Best Awards 2020 readers' survey. This is the third time Kasbah Tamadot has won this prestigious award, having previously won in 2017 and 2019 respectively.

Jon Brown, Managing Director of Virgin Limited Edition, commented: “It is such an honour for Kasbah Tamadot to be named No.1 Resort Hotel in North Africa and the Middle East in this year’s Travel + Leisure World's Best Awards. To have won this esteemed award three times now, is simply just wonderful and it is a true testament to the incredible work of our people. This win could not have come at a better time to celebrate, during what has been one of the most challenging times the travel industry has ever faced. Even through these tough times, our team have continued to keep the magic of Kasbah Tamadot alive, and supported the very vulnerable communities that surround it - and we are immensely proud of that.

“We’re so incredibly grateful to our guests that come to visit us year after year and who have taken the time to vote. I speak on behalf of the entire Virgin Limited Edition team when I say we feel very fortunate and are extremely honoured to have won this notable award, yet again.

“Our flagship property Necker Island in the British Virgin Islands also featured in this year’s award and named in two categories, as No. 4 in ‘Best Resort Hotels in the Caribbean, Bermuda and Bahamas’ and No.40 in the category of ‘Best Hotels in the World’. The island has just completed more than two years of reconstruction, following Hurricane Irma so we’re incredibly proud to see it back on the list.”

Situated in the spectacular Atlas Mountains in Morocco, the award-winning Kasbah Tamadot was bought by Sir Richard Branson during one of his famous ballooning expeditions. Each of the 28 rooms and suites has been individually decorated to reflect the beautiful architecture of the building and features antiques from all over the world.

Rates start from MAD 5,880 (£485.00 at today’s exchange rate) per room per night, based on double occupancy.
