Selman Marrakech is located just south of the city, centered between the rustic charm of rural Morocco and Marrakesh's vibrant culture. This palatial hotel invites discerning travelers who are in search of an elevated Moroccan experience.
Designer Jaques Garcia helmed the interior design of Selman Marrakech, making use of Berber-style interiors and art nouveau detailing in his concept. Majorelle blue, mousharabi screens, and zellige tiles in a rainbow of colors feature heavily throughout the interiors. The juxtaposition of classic elements with modern amenities is seamless, with wireless Internet connectivity throughout, and flat screen televisions and iPod docking stations integrated discreetly in each room.
Guests may choose from 60 accommodation options, including 25 suites and five private riads. Each space has its own unique character and coloring, fitted with furnishings designed by Garcia himself. Select rooms include a private terrace which opens onto a sliver of the 15 acres of manicured gardens. In the one or two-bedroom riads, a personal butler is on hand at all hours, and a private pool and garden offers singular exclusivity.
Selman Marrakech is also home to a world-class Arabian horse stud farm. Twelve magnificent pure-bred stallions occupy paddocks and stables that were also designed by Garcia. Guests are welcome to tour their ruby-red abode, which resembles an art gallery more than a stable. Each day around lunch the stallions are led out to strut and show off during a demonstration. These lunchtime shows can be enjoyed from the Pavilion restaurant, located next to the stables and open all day for dining.
Other dining options include Assyl, which pays tribute to Moroccan heritage through both its decor and its cuisine, and fine dining at The Selman. Another space designed by Garcia, this signature restaurant offers an international menu and a lively bar amidst plush seating and vibrant colors.
If the stables at Selman Marrakech are like an art gallery, the infinity swimming pool is certainly a catwalk – it’s flanked by palms and daybeds and is the longest pool in Morocco. The elegant Henri Chenot spa is a true retreat, with swimming pools of its own plus a Jacuzzi, Turkish bath, and a bevvy of treatment options to enhance your relaxation.Request Information
