Selman Marrakesh I Wellbeing Escapes | Wellbeing Escapes

Selman Marrakech

Marrakech, Morocco

Overview

Selman Marrakech is one of the most unique hotels in this city. Located away from the busy Medina, this luxury and intimate property is truly special. One of their main highlights are Arabian horses roaming around the estate. Apart from these majestic creatures you can enjoy traditional Moroccan hospitality, delicious cuisine, elegant yet traditional design by Jacques Garcia and never ending sun. The spa also offers something unique - the concept is based on the famous wellness philosophy of Henri Chenot. The aim is to release your body of toxins and bring back to full vitality and energy whilst slowing down the process of ageing. Close proximity to Marrakesh makes Selman a great base for exploring all important sights of the city and around. 

When to go

This region of Morocco has a mild climate all year round and 340 days of sunshine a year. Worth visiting anytime of the year but July and August might be a bit too hot!
