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.
The Spa programmes can take place over 2-3 days, based on individual
assessment. Personalised treatment plans will target specific issues such as
anxiety, fatigue and weight amongst others. Alongside the treatments, a
specific diet is created and Chenot diet, built around light food such as
fruits, vegetables and animal protein, is served in Selman’s restaurants in
order to assist the detoxification process.
The Spa also offers traditional rituals such as the classic black
soap scrub with a Hammam, and a detoxifying Rhassoul natural mineral clay wrap.
Selman Marrakech is unlike any other luxury hotel, thanks to the

Morocco, and to the training of young Moroccans in the disciplines of classical
dressage, aerobatics and liberty.
