Hotel Overview

Sense of Place

Selman Marrakech has a stunning rural setting overlooking the Atlas Mountains. A showcase of Arab-Moorish architecture, it is surrounded by gardens, and the crowning glory of the estate is its impressive stud farm with beautiful Arabian thoroughbred horses - all just 15 minutes from the bustling centre of Marrakech. 

Rooms at Selman Marrakech

The lavish and spacious rooms, suites, and villas embrace Moroccan culture, featuring fine fabrics and textures, perfectly blended with the ultimate modern luxury. Stay in a room or suite and take in the hotel’s lavish gardens and pool and the Atlas Mountains from your own individual terrace or balcony - the perfect spot for breakfast. For even more privacy and indulgence, opt for a villa to enjoy your own private pool and gardens, as well as a personal butler to take care of your every need.

Food & Drink

With a variety of restaurants, each with a unique culinary identity, there is sure to be something to satisfy all tastes. Dine at the Assyl restaurant and go on a culinary journey as you discover authentic Moroccan cuisine. For light, al fresco dining with a Mediterranean feel, head to Le Pavillon, in the gardens of the estate, where the views are as good as the food. Experience a Sunday brunch here like no other, featuring a parade of the estate’s Arabian horses.


Treat your body to some pampering at the spa, where you’ll find traditional treatments and rituals designed to leave you feeling relaxed and rejuvenated. Visit the hammam and enjoy a rhassoul treatment with Moroccan clay, which has therapeutic properties for the skin. The rather special Espace Vitalité Chenot offers personalised treatments, including detoxifying treatments and nutrition programmes, which will leave you in peak condition. 

Spend the afternoon by the pool, set in the heart of the gardens, and soak up the views with a delicious cocktail in hand.

Activities at Selman Marrakech

What makes the Selman Marrakech truly unique is the stables, which are home to the estate’s internationally renowned Arabian thoroughbred horses. Unfortunately, the horses are not available for guests to ride, but you can take a tour through the magnificent stables and learn about the prestigious prize-winning animals, beloved in Morocco and beyond.

If you can drag yourself away, there are plenty more adventures on offer too: explore on a quad bike tour or head out in style in a vintage car. If you're a golf fan, there are several golf courses just a short drive from the hotel.
