Written by FDM

British self-made billionaire Richard Branson thinks the world of the Atlas mountains, especially his breathtaking luxury Riad Kasbah Tamadot, in the vicinity of Marrakesh.

The founder of Virgin Group,  Richard Branson, made sure to share his fondness of Morocco’s Atlas mountains as he spent a few days lately in his extraordinary resort.

The resort is located near Asni, a small town 55 kilometers away from the city of Marrakesh. It is surrounded by  beautiful villages and exquisite scenery.

Branson’s parents saw the Riad, which is now dubbed Kasbah Tamadot while ballooning over Morocco’s mountains. Today the wealthy businessman loves Morocco as much as his parents do « I visit as often as I can, and it is a special place for all of our family. As mum says: “You have to fall in love with it. You can’t do anything else.”

The Virgin Limited Edition owner bought the luxury hotel during “one of his famous ballooning expedition,” according to Virgin Limited Edition magazine.
