The Selman, Marrakech, Morocco

Five minutes from the hustle of the vibrant Medina and designed by Jacques Garcia – one of the world’s most in-demand interior designers – The Selman offers something wildly different from the norm.

​This boutique, super-luxurious palais set on 15-acres of parkland in the foothills of the Atlas Mountains effortlessly fuses traditional Moroccan style with an oh-so-modern twist.

Fifty-six fabulous couture rooms showcase the renowned designer's dramatic touches, from suede walls and studded furniture to monochrome bathrooms and artwork throughout that gives more than a nod to owner Abdeslam Bennani Smires' passion for Arabian thoroughbreds, while the five riads each come complete with a private garden, a heated pool, and butler service.

​Around the resort you'll also find a sun-drenched patio, Marrakech's longest swimming pool, Selman's Kids' Club, a Sunday Brunch that's not-to-be-missed and the exquisite Espace Chenot spa, the first in Morocco to offer the unique Chenot Method of treatments that aim to effectively protect the body from damage, accumulation of toxins and premature aging.

It's also home to the owner's 16 pure-bred Arabian horses, who's very own designer stables are as luxurious as the hotel itself.
