Six Senses Zil Pasyon, Félicité, Seychelles
All good things come to those who wait. And this, the latest offering from Six Senses is more than just good – it’s exhilaratingly beautiful.
Located on the north side of the glamorous, exclusive and tiny private island of Félicité, its villas and residences scattered among huge granite boulders perched above the Indian Ocean, Six Senses Zil Pasyon has more than an air of drama and mystery about it. Occupying less than a third of the island itself, there's everything you'll need for a private island getaway: three sandy beaches, a magnificent rock-edged swimming pool, kids' club, day spa, watersports centre and memorable Seychellois-inspired dining.
Thirty one- and two-bedroom pool villas (either in front of the ocean or perched hillside) and two three- or four-bedroom hilltop residences are all enveloped within the classic Seychellois landscape, loaded with every conceivable gadget (including a private wine cellar), a deliciously private infinity pool, and 'Guest Experience Maker' butler service.
Pick up anything you need for watery-adventures like dive excursions, snorkelling, sailing, kayaking and stand-up paddleboard at the Experience Centre, where you can also arrange private boat trips out to neighbouring islands, cycling on La Digue, and guided tours of Vallee de Mai (the UNESCO World Heritage Site in the heart of Praslin National Park).
Or stay put and enjoy the beaches, pools and inspiring walking trails, while 4-12 year-olds won't be able to tear themselves away from Trouloulou, the interactive kids' villa.
