Six Senses Zil Pasyon

This private-island resort offers 30 gorgeous villas and a spectacular spa wedged between granite boulders at the ocean’s edge. Discover the ecological jewel of Seychelles and private-island home to Six Senses Zil Pasyon. Coral-fringed beaches and massive granite rocks create an air of drama and beauty in this haven of perpetual summer. Step in tune with nature, swim with turtles and enjoy an intimate destination that is a tropical ode to well-being and absolute comfort.

Virtually the perfect location, unless you’re averse to private islands altogether. Félicité is situated in the inner Granitic islands, which means you’ll enjoy all the privacy and perks of a private-island retreat while also being within easy reach (20-40 minutes) of 10 other islands. Close by is Praslin, the location of the Vallée de Mai where the Coco de Mer grows; laid-back La Digue with its spectacular beaches; Cocos Island, one of the best snorkeling spots in the Seychelles; and Curieuse Island, a nature reserve where a large population of giant tortoises roam free. To reach Félicité there is the option of a 15-minute helicopter ride, or a short flight and boat transfer via Praslin.

Clever Studio RHE have nailed it with the fun but sophisticated vibe that characterises the resort, which is moulded around the island’s endemic trees, wild beaches and huge granite boulders. The whitewashed, ocean-side hub of restaurants, bars, boutique and library feels like a small village, sitting as it does in the shade of a huge Badamier tree hung with bird’s-nest lanterns that lend the area a magical feel at night. In the foreground, a turquoise infinity pool merges with the mesmerising colours of the sea, while bamboo hammocks, coiled bar stools, rope swing chairs and mesh cargo nets (for the ultimate over-the-water sunbathing) hold everything together in a subtle seafaring theme.

Extensive as the resort is – with four miles (6 km) of paved road – it occupies just one third of the 652-acre island, the rest of which has been left wild. You can enjoy some of it on hiking trails with island ecologist Steve Hill. He’s been engaged in rehabilitating the island’s endemic flora and fauna for the past nine years and has been instrumental in eradicating invasive species and planting three valleys of tropical fruit trees. There are also long-term plans to reintroduce the native giant tortoise and the island’s Grand Anse beach is already a nesting site for hawksbill sea turtles.  

Nested discreetly in the tropical forest are 28 single-bedroom villas, two two-bedroom villas and a handful of hyper-luxurious, 007-style private residences (capped at 17 in total). Ranging in size from 2,150 to 5,380 square feet, the villas' light-filled, lateral design pays tribute to the pristine environment in which they sit. The wood-shingled roof and Balau-wood cladding make them almost invisible from afar, while natural materials such as the quartzite green Sukabumi tiles in the bathroom and infinity pool mirror the variegated colours of the sea visible throughout from floor-to-ceiling windows. True to the Six Senses brand the furnishings and fittings are cool rather than classic. And extra touches such as a swing seat in the bathroom gazing out to sea and a submerged sun-lounger in the infinity pool add a playful element to the design.

For families there are two two-bedroom villas available and as the residences are completed there will be a few three- and four-bedroom villas. The resort also has a kids' club and a fantastically well-stocked library with some very cool games and toys. Parents should note that as with all Seychelles beaches there can be strong currents and forceful waves on some of the beaches depending on the season.
