A very short distance from Marrakech’s Menara airport, and after a full-immersion drive along the palm groves, your taxi, or Selman-limo, will come to a stop. Nothing can quite prepare you for what sits in hushed luxury behind an ever-so-long brick wall that lines the main road. Security checks in all the arrivals, and the gate-way opens out to an Aladdin-style terracotta palace.
A luxurious, colonnaded portico entrance starts the journey at Selman Marrakech. This hotel, rising out from the desert, is designed to overwhelm you with its sensual welcome. Jacques Garcia’s designs lead your eye from his signature silk lamp shades, velvet chairs and opulent shades of imperial mauve and luxuriant furnishings, out onto the terrace. The tall French windows open out, and there it is: an endlessly long swimming pool that stretches out before you, as far as the palatial stables.
This is where the thoroughbred Arabians reside in the Garcia-designed stables, using the five paddocks to prance on. The entire hotel resort pays tribute to the Arabian horse from Persia; in every detail. Selman was the original father of a line of purebreds, and the owner, Abdeslam Bennani Smires, has chosen to recreate this awe-inspiring equine lineage, as well as reflect the golden age of Moroccan culture within his walled property. Few horses could live in such elegance and few horses could also share this keen dedication and profound respect to their aristocratic heritage.
Selman Marrakech as a property overall, works to create rare and uniquely refined experiences using spaces where one feels at home in someone else’s home; extraordinary products, interiors, and wellbeing secretly revealed, room by room... like an exceptional wine, an especially memorable spa treatment, an evening walk under the stars, an unexpected token of kindness – every gesture counts towards the whole of the hotel’s sensual alignment.
Selman Marrakech is located 10 minutes from Marrakech Menara Airport (RAK) and the Gueliz city centre and 15 minutes from Jemaa el-Fnaa, the main square of the city.
This restaurant embraces a sense of timelessness and an invitation to travel into the details of the interiors and the stories they have to tell, and beyond through the open doors that lead onto the terraces. Primarily an evening dinner venue, the tables are chic but at the same time easy, opulent with a touch of the majestic. The décor is punctuated with mauves and greens which create a strong contrast with the grand austerity of the exterior architecture. The dining room is a lavish space, with a fireplace featuring a long-line mant...
At the heart of the Spring Garden of Selman Marrakech lies Le Pavillon restaurant, set in a very exceptional position in perfect alignment amongst the lawns and the paddocks.
