At the foot of the Atlas Mountains, away from the hustle of the Medina but still close to city and airport, lies the luxury hotel Selman Marrakech. The Arabian horse has a huge significance. The hotel is even named after the father of a line of thoroughbreds. Facing the Andalusian pavilion, the Selman Marrakech stud has two lavish stables. In the gardens, four outdoor paddocks are home to the elegant Selman Arabian horses from the hotel’s own breeding programme, roaming there for the guests’ delight. This is a truly unique experience. With its two private pools, the spa Espace Vitalité Chenot Marrakech is an oasis within an oasis and a tribute to Oriental well-being. It features a hammam, steam room, sauna, water jets, hydrotherapy and a broad variety of treatments. Le Selman restaurant is a chic but casual dining place made up of two parts: a large room with a replace and an extended covered patio. It offers an international fusion cuisine without being pretentious. The Assyl restaurant offers an authentic Moroccan cuisine in an outstanding setting. The Mediterranean-inspired Le Pavillon has a stunning view over the stables and paddocks where the Selman’s thoroughbred Arabian horses parade.
