Selman Marrakech is one of the latest additions to the Marrakesh ultra-luxury boutique resort scene.
Located 10 minutes from Marrakech’s Medina, Selman opened in May 2012. The property covers 15 acres of land that was formerly used as horse-grazing park land, and is located in the foothills of the Atlas Mountains. Selman is unique among Marrakech's hotels in that it offers a band of purebred Arabian horses (with their own designer stable) alongside beautiful Moorish design and elaborate artisan craftsmanship.
The resort offers 30 Deluxe and Superior rooms (55m2) - 20 junior suites (70m2) - 6 Deluxe Suites (120m2) - and five freestanding villa-riads (150 to 280 m2). Each of the five riads has a private garden, private heated pool and a butler.
Selman boasts a wonderful Espace Vitalite Chenot spa, and a number of fine dining options, including a brasserie, Mediterranean restaurant, poolside lounge, and Pavilion Bar overlooking the horses’ paddocks.
Selman is 10 minutes from Marrakesh Medina, and 20 minutes from the airport (RAK).
Spring (April – June) and autumn (September – November) are the best times to visit Marrakesh. Temperatures measure between 20°C and 25°C during the day and rarely drop below 10°C at night. Between November and February the nights are somewhat cooler. From mid-June to August, temperatures measure between 30°C and 40°C, occasionally rising even higher.
