The Selman Marrakech: A Dream from 1001 Nights

This establishment is a magical symbiosis of Moroccan tradition and modern Zeitgeist: the new five-star Selman Marrakech boutique resort uses authentic heavy local woven fabrics with bold colours and clear lines.

French architect Jacques Garcia has created a work of art within a Moorish Palace at the foot of the Atlas Mountains: elegant and sumptuous, yet without appearing in any way clumsy, either inside or out. The interior areas create a sense of intimacy, while providing views of the magnificent Andalusia-style courtyards and gardens. The public areas have secluded patios and fire-hearth niche zones.

At the heart of Jacques Garcia’s oasis design is an 80-metre swimming pool — surrounded by a rainbow of flowers, olive and palm trees. As part of the overall design, the hotel has two restaurants and three bars; furniture includes stylish basket and steel furniture. Whether relaxing under the open sky or shade of Le Pavillion, the guest not only has a view of the carefully manicured ornamental pool, but also a unique view of the hotel’s own stud farm.

In addition to the 56 bedrooms decorated in the Moorish style, guests can reserve one of five luxury Riad apartments, for whose living rooms Garcia selected rare works of art and antiques. The opulent bedroom curtains are reminiscent of Bedouin tents. Each Riad apartment surrounds its own private 400 square metre private garden with heated pool and lounge area. And true to Moroccan tradition, a private patio and fountain lead to the guest’s own private and personal rooms.
