One of only 5 hotels in the world to have a Chenot Spa, the facility at Selman Marrakech offers a new approach to regaining rhythm and balance for mind and body. The 1,200m2 spa is reminiscent of a traditional Turkish bath and includes seven treatment rooms, four hydrotherapy rooms, a hydro-massage pool, two heated outdoor pools, a gym and a spa boutique. Guests can enjoy the spa for a few hours or for several days, following the famous Chenot Method, developed over 45 years by Henri Chenot.
With nearly 50 years of research, the Chenot Method® is the scientific and practical framework of the work over the course of the programmes. The success of the method lies in the research-driven approach to the diagnostics and to the way treatments are carefully inter-woven, seamlessly layered and thoughtfully connected. Synergy and connection are the key tenants of the concept.
Selman Marrakech is unlike any other luxury hotel, thanks to the thoroughbred Arabian horses that it houses. Guests can visit the stud farm and meet the international prize-winning horses. The owners are driven by a real passion for the Arabian breed, one of the oldest and most noble horse breeds in the world.
The stables are fit for a king, also designed by Jacques Garcia like the hotel itself. Grooms delight in showing off the beautiful horses and the Andalusian architecture of the stables.
