Each bedroom has its own private bathroom, lounge area and terrace, with the latest unique addition – a showstopping Rooftop Tented Suite – comprising of two seamlessly connected tents and also featuring a hot tub on the spacious roof terrace, in a spectacular and modern take on a traditional Riad rooftop.

A brand-new restaurant and lounge, Asayss, will also open in July under the direction of Kasbah Tamadot’s long-standing and award-winning Executive Chef, Yassine Khalal, serving Moroccan and international cuisine to both hotel guests and visitors from the wider local area. The name Asayss is a nod to a traditional Moroccan space where poets would gather to share their verses and enjoy grand feasts. The menu will celebrate the freshest ingredients and local produce, the majority of which is sourced from the hotel’s own extensive kitchen garden, with a tasting menu also available in the evening.

The stunning new Riads will add a further room type to Kasbah Tamadot’s impressive accommodation, renowned for its iconic and luxury Berber Tents.

Each tent has its own private terrace with space for outdoor dining, with some featuring private hot tubs. The main infinity pool area remains as one of the hotel’s most striking features surrounded by 360-degree views of the High Atlas Mountains and guests are able to make the most of the local spa treatments including a traditional Hamman, as well as authentic Moroccan cooking lessons and guided hiking and cycling in the surrounding Atlas Mountains.
