It is here! Opening month for the new Selina Agafay in Morocco has arrived. On May 20th, the first Selina in Morocco will kick off by hosting the international music festival, Sattalight, hosting 20 DJs from around the world.
The event is sure to bring the vibrant social energy Selina locations are known for to the Agafay hills and introduce digital nomads to this incredible landscape.
The newest Selina location offers guests incredible glamping in the sand dunes of Morocco with traditional Selina offerings like a night club, pool, and Coworking space. Digital nomads can partake in incredible unique experiences like camel rides, desert wellness and canyon taking at this amazing location.
Accommodations are a bit different at the Selina Agafay in that guest will sleep under the stars in a series of high end tents. CoLive residents can expect the same variety of room levels they are used to- including shared tents, micro levels, up to large deluxe glimpsing lofts. Though the sizing of the shared spaces will vary a bit- fr example, the “dorm” tent holds 25 beds.

Selina Hospitality to go Public
Selina Hospitality, the company behind the Selina hotel chain and Colive program announced that it will be going public.
The finance move will secure $147.5M in financing for the company to assist its growth and adaptation to the growing digital nomads landscape geared towards Gen Z and Millennial remote workers.
Selina Hospitality will be released on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) and the company is expected to value at $1.2B.
Selina Hospitality is Trying Out a Visa Loyalty Card
The Selina hospitality brand has been busy lately.
In addition to the announcement to go public, the company has been testing out a Selina Hotel Visa card.
The card will be a loyalty card, in addition to a payment method, where card holders can earn points for use on future stays as well as cash back.
Keeping their prime demographics of Gen Z and Millennial in mind, the Selina card is a debit card instead of a credit card and is managed by First International Bank.
For Selina locations that currently offer the card to guests, guests receive a $25 reward at sign up in addition to their loyalty points.
The company’s IPO is taking precedence over the card’s roll out, so the earliest the card is expecting to be amiable globally is late 2022.
Outsite Hosting Free Online Event
Upscale and chic coliving provider, Outsite, is hosting a free online event to introduce guests to their 30+ global locations.
The event is an opportunity for new and current digital nomads to ask their detailed questions about each location to people who have been and get a real sense for what Outsite is about.
