What is materializing 30 minutes from Marrakesh is not a mirage; it is the emergence of Selina Agafay, an oasis of peace and tranquility in the shadow of the Atlas Mountains.
When it opens in May, Selina Agafay will offer its nomadic clientele options for sleeping under the stars, ranging from shared Bedouin tent accommodations to a private loft to all of the standard Selina amenities. Its Agafay Desert location puts guests within reach of extraordinary experiences including camel rides, wellness sessions, canyon trekking, and embracing the quietude of the starkly beautiful desert landscape.
For the fortunate first guests, a rare experience awaits: a four-day Selina International Music Summit (SIMS) – Sattalight – May 19-23, 2022. This multi-sensory electronic and world music festival will combine curated art, wellness, and culinary experiences, drawing more than 20 DJs and live acts from Morocco and internationally. Featured artists include Red Axes, Super Flu, Jenia Tarsol, Amine K, and Parrallells.
Selina’s Vice President of Global Brands & Creative Ariel Levinsohn noted, “The desert of Morocco is an incredible place to journey, and we’ve created a Bedouin-inspired escape for travelers that presents the best of nomadic life. This special place deserves a spectacular debut, and the multi-sensory experience of SIMS Sattalight music festival will be an experience like no other.”
Selina Agafay manifests Selina’s commitment to delivering on the travel aspirations of digital nomads who can work and play from anywhere and who are attracted to places where they can immerse themselves in local culture and community.
