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 the gardens, tennis courts, mule shed and Berber Tents. There are ten tents, six of which have private jacuzzis, 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 – these are housed just beyond the tennis courts.
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.
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 the signature treatments at the Asounfou Spa. Spend time in the 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!
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.
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. Kanoun is open for all hotel guests and casual lunch diners on request.
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 Restaurant 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 specialties from the à la carte menu.
We can also arrange for breakfast to be brought to your room on request. 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.
Their à la carte menu is always available, but we also serve traditional Berber feasts buffet style as well as multiple course tasting menus with Moroccan and international themes.
