“Fresh Picks” features the latest luxury properties admitted into the Kiwi Collection. This week, we take a closer look at the palatial Selman Palace in magical Marrakech set to open May 1, 2012.
What: The Jacques Garcia-designed hotel contains 56 rooms and suites plus five private riads. The spa facilities are fitted with 15 treatment rooms, indoor and outdoor pools (one of which is 75 meters, the longest in Marrakech), hammam, Turkish bath, and gym. Then there’s two restaurants and a library bar for wining and dining. But perhaps the most unique feature is the stable of 16 Arabian horses kept on site; ten thoroughbreds and six others for guests to hire and ride ’round the grounds.
