We stayed at…

Selman (selman-marrakech.com), a 56-room oasis on the outskirts of the city with Andalucian-style gardens, a 80m heated outdoor pool, three restaurants, a Henri Chenot spa and a collection of thoroughbred Arabian horses housed in palatial stables designed by Jacques Garcia. Double rooms cost from £240 with breakfast and Wifi.

Feel the heat: the pool at the Selman hotel
