Six Senses Zil Pasyon is located on Félicité, a private island home to huge granite rocks and coral fringed beaches. It is reached by a scenic 20-minute helicopter flight from Mahé or a 20-minute speedboat trip from Praslin Island.
The resort features 30 pool villas nestled among the tropical vegetation with views over the sparkling Indian Ocean. Each villa has its own private infinity-edge pool and the interiors are bright, airy and spacious. Bathrooms offer wonderfully deep tubs as well as showers.
When it comes to eating and drinking, guests are spoiled for choice. Enjoy breakfast and dinner at the Island Cafe where European, Asian and African cuisine comes together, inspired by the Seychellois spice route. Enjoy fresh and simple fare at the Ocean Kitchen and refreshing drinks at the resort’s two bars. Those with a sweet tooth should keep a lookout for the ice cream bike that travels up and down the island offering delectable frozen treats using fresh, local ingredients.
The Six Senses spa is perched between towering boulders and offers a range of holistic treatments. It features five individual villas, sauna and steam rooms, a yoga and meditation pavilion and an elevated open-air saltwater pool with a sundeck.
There is so much to do while staying at Six Senses, from cooking classes and outdoor cinema to water sports, cycling and fishing.
