Celebrity billionaire Richard Branson can pick up and go anywhere on earth any time he wishes. (And to boot, he owns not just his own jet, but his own airline to do it!) Where does a busy man like Branson — founder of Virgin Records, Virgin Airlines and so much more — go to get away from the constant demands of his multiple far-flung business interests?
No place on earth beats Kasbah Tamadot for the billionaire. He calls the luxury Morrocan mountain hideaway in famed Marrakech one of his favorite places in the world, especially noting its “serenity.” Of course, Branson owns the place — it’s part of his Virgin Limited Edition properties.
In Arabic, Kasbah means old city or fortress or watchtower, and Kashbah Tomadot’s position high in the Atlas Mountains of Morocco makes it an ideal spot for a modern-day watchtower. You can just watch the sky from the pool and keep an eye on the serenity, though as ever that may require you to look within.
