Kas­bah Ta­madot

Hong Kong Tatler - - Features -

Owned by Richard Branson, this hill­top palace of­fers mag­i­cal, lux­u­ri­ous in­te­ri­ors and un­for­get­table views com­bined with as much adrenalin-filled ad­ven­ture as you could want. The ho­tel, with only 27 bed­rooms, has a re­laxed, con­vivial at­mos­phere and feels like an over­sized coun­try house, com­plete with pea­cocks wan­der­ing the gar­den. The decor—a mix of African, In­dian and Chi­nese—is colour­ful and ef­fort­lessly sim­ple, and there’s a full range of ac­tiv­i­ties, from ten­nis, quad bik­ing and trekking to hot air bal­loon­ing and a two-day hike to the top of nearby Mount Toubkal. Asoun­fou Spa de­liv­ers un­beat­able pam­per­ing, such as the yazire treat­ment ( yazire is the Ber­ber word for rose­mary), a mois­tur­is­ing mas­sage with rose­mary and warm oils. As 15 per cent of the pro­ceeds from treat­ments goes to de­vel­op­ing sus­tain­able en­ter­prises in the lo­cal com­mu­nity, you can feel vir­tu­ous if you give in to the urge to re­turn to the ham­mam ev­ery day.
