The work of French de­signer Jac­ques Gar­cia, the Moor­ish-style Sel­man is a calm oa­sis a few min­utes’ drive from Mar­rakech’s riv­et­ing me­d­ina. With 56 rooms and five ri­ads, the fam­ily-owned re­sort is large but se­duc­tive. Ev­ery space is filled with di­verse tex­tures and fine de­tail, from an­tique car­pets and suede-cov­ered walls to ebony-stained plas­ter­work and the black­est lac­quer. The ro­man­tic gar­dens are ideal for a gen­tle stroll, while the 16 Ara­bian horses in a pad­dock nearby cry out to be taken for a sun­set ride. The French kitchens serve de­li­cious con­tem­po­rary fare. And there’s the Chenot spa; while Henri Chenot’s renowned re­sort in the Ital­ian Alps has long at­tracted the diehards of detox, the fo­cus here is on un­wind­ing and slow­ing down to the pace of life un­der the African sun.
