Moroccan ‘Earthquake’ Hotel Set To Re-Open

A North African hotel which faced partial closure following last year’s devastating Moroccan earthquake, will open six brand new Riads this July with a full re opening later this year.

The Kasbah Tamadot, part of Sir Richard Branson’s Virgin Limited Edition stable of properties, is synonymous with Berber hospitality and will reopen in full on 15th October.

However, on 1st July, the stunning property, nestled in the Atlas Mountains with stunning views over the majestic Mount Toubkal, will see the opening of six new Riads.

Riads, which in Arabic means garden, is a house with an inner courtyard, around which the rooms and some common areas are distributed.

They usually have two or three floors at most and have a small number of rooms.

Newly designed image renderings offer a sneak peak of the six new expansive three-bedroom Riads – featuring one further bedroom than originally planned – that can sleep up to 10 guests.

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.

The restoration of the main Kasbah is well underway following September’s devastating earthquake that sadly impacted the hotel and much of the surrounding communities.

Guests can now book to experience the new Riads at Kasbah Tamadot from 1 July 2024, with rates starting at MAD 45,100 (£3,530) for a three-bedroom Riad on a B&B basis. Rates for the hotel, from 15th October onwards, start at MAD 7,200 (£560) based on two people sharing on a B&B basis.
