BFB's Overview.

Set against the backdrop of the Atlas Mountains, this palatial hotel is a beacon of luxury in the bustling city of Marrakech. Jaw dropping good looks combine with impeccable service, an impressive spa and a genuinely, family-friendly welcome, making this place more than little a bit special.

Located just ten minutes from Menara airport and a few miles south of the bustling Medina, the hotel offers a real oasis in the heart of the city. Appearing like a mirage in an otherwise arid desert landscape, the hotel is a vibrant splash of colour filled with beautiful grounds, sparkling swimming pools and even its own herd of fine, Arabian horses. Inside the hotel has been styled by Jacques Garcia, who’s artfully combined Art Noveau style with Berber luxury to create a real sense of old school glamour. We could wax lyrical about the hotel’s style for at least a couple of thousand more words but what truly excites us about this Moroccan retreat, is its child-friendly credentials.

Mini guests are treated like royalty, befitting their surroundings. On arrival they’re greeted with a charming, welcome gift and rooms can be set up with a host of handy baby/toddler gear to ensure a comfortable, stress-free stay (see fast facts box for full details). It’s the kids club however, that proves the real crowning glory. Free for 4-12-year-olds (younger children can attend if accompanied by an adult or babysitter) it offers a beautiful indoor and outdoor play area alongside a host of fun-filled activities including pony/horse-drawn carriage rides. In the evenings the club staff offer regular theme nights offering the perfect excuse for parents to enjoy a romantic dinner à deux.

Family-friendly in every sense, the hotel doesn’t just strive to make little ones happy, it ensures parents equally taken of. We defy anyone not to feel more than just a little smug as they recline alongside Morocco’s longest swimming pool, lined in Guatemalan marble, beneath the shade of a palm tree, under an almost year-round sun. Of course, there’s much, more to Selman than postcard good looks. There’s a choice of restaurants serving a delicious and varied cuisine, two sophisticated bars serving, an opulent Henri Chenot spa, gym, hairdresser and more. The hotel concierge can offer a range of activities from golfing to skiing, quad biking to hot air balloon rides. So however, you choose to relax, the hotel can easily oblige.

There’s nowhere quite like The Selman, for exotic, family holiday within four hours of London, filled with fun, sun and relaxation!

Location Information

The hotel is conveniently located just 10 minutes from Marrakech airport (transfers with baby seats can be arranged) and approximately 15 minutes from the bustling Medina centre. The flight time is between 3.5 – 4 hours from London making it the perfect destination for Autumn, Winter or Spring sun holiday breaks.

Although the hotel has plenty to keep families entertained, there’s also a choice of activities nearby from desert quad biking to golfing, mountain treks to guided walks.

Of course, no trip to Marrakech would be complete without a visit to the Medina. A culture filled maze of colourful souks, beautiful rooftop restaurants and artisan shops hidden away behind the cities red walls. For foodies, we recommend a trip to Medina restaurants, Nomad, Le Jardin, and Terrasse Des Epices. The latter had the best chicken pastilla (a richly filled filo style parcel, friend and topped with icing sugar) we tried and is sat above a lovely selection of fixed-price shops filled with young designer wares. Keeping with the shopping theme there are some fantastic concept stores within the vibrant and bustling souks. Max & Jan is one of our personal favourites and has a little coffee shop for a mid-shop break.

Those in search of a little culture won’t be disappointed. There’s a choice of museums, galleries and historic sites to visit. Our favourites include the infamous Jardin Majorelle which is a beautiful botanical garden in the heart of the city and the neighbouring Yves St Laurent Museum which has a collection of their dresses and a beautiful book shop. Back in the medina the Maison de la Photographie is another favourite. It has a stunning collection of photographs and is a tranquil, haven away from the hustle and bustle of the manic Medina.

Nearest Medical Facility: The hotel can arrange a doctor on request.

Getting there: Marrakech Menara airport is approx.10 minutes drive from the hotel and a range of Uk airports offer direct flights. Transfers with car seats can be arranged for around £50 each way (these are included with suite and villa bookings).
