On a recent weekend in Marrakesh I was fortunate to discover the newly-opened Hotel Selman, and am writing my first review because it was so special. Designed by the well-known Jacques Garcia, this place is gorgeous, majestic but intimate at the same time. The elegant pool is 80 meters (longest in Marrakech), stretching out toward the stables housing magnificent Arabian stallions. The service is top-notch, welcome at the airport and the discreet staff can organize just about anything, from golf to regional excursions to horseback riding to, of course, shopping in the souks. Selman has the Chenot Spa, which is considered the finest medical and esthetic spa in Europe. There are a lot of luxury hotels and riads in the city, but this place feels like the Alhambra, with vaulted brick ceilings and columns, and unbelievable views to the Atlas mountains. The food is fantastic as well, definitely worth a day at the pool even if you aren't staying here.
