Six Senses Zil Pasyon: Luxury amid Seychelles' island allure
May 3, 2016: This fall, Six Senses is unveiling a new, luxurious getaway in the breath-taking, 652-acre Felicite island of the Seychelles.
Sprawling over a third of the isle, which is one of the 115 that make up Seychelles, the Six Senses Zil Pasyon features 30 villas, 17 private residences, six dining and bar venues, sport and leisure facilities, three powder-sand beaches and an outdoor main pool, set at the ocean’s edge. Highlights are the signature Six Senses Spa, an amalgam of hammam, a sauna, a yoga platform and a nail bar, as well as the Trouloulou Kids’ Villa, an interactive camp spot for children between 4 – 12 years of age.
Drawing on the island’s bucolic spirit, the 28 one-bedroom and two two-bedroom villas boast fully operational bow windows that let nature in, a large private sun deck, an outdoor dining area and a private wine cellar that make for perfect, intimate meal “at home.”
For those seeking the buzz of eating out, there are plenty of options, as well: the relaxed yet sophisticated destination-dining locale, Island Café, the no-meat Ocean Kitchen, Koko Bar by the pool and even privately organized dining experiences around the island.
Six Senses Zil Pasyon also offers a slew of activities – from cooking classes to movie screenings to dive excursions to island trekking and guided tours around some of the Seychelles’ UNESCO World Heritage Sites to name but a few.
Reached via a 20-minute helicopter journey or a 90-minute boat trip, Sex Senses Zil Pasyon’s villas come to around $1,400 a night. More information is available at the resort’s website.
