Selman Marrakech

Selman Marrakech is a huge hotel about 3 mi from the center of Marrakesh. All of the rooms are set up around the main 260 ft pool. Each of the hotel’s five guest riads come with a private garden and heated pool. The rooms facing the garden are lovely. The hotel was designed by Jacques Garcia so it is a little bit like La Mamounia, except it’s out of town.

It is perfect for a wedding or event – they have conferences and meeting spaces. The breakfast area is lovely. At the spa, guests can choose from hydrotherapies and traditional remedies such as a facial mask that uses rhassoul clay from the mountains. The hotel’s stables house 16 Arabian purebreds, which visitors can meet on a stable tour when the steeds aren’t roaming the property. Horse lovers would be happy here.
