Surrounded by the azure waters of the Indian Ocean and located amidst the idyllic islands of the Seychelles, the private island of Felicite is home to the Six Senses Zil Pasyon. Opened in the autumn of 2016, this luxury resort offers guests a tranquil retreat in a stunning area of towering granite rocks, tropical foliage and white sandy beaches.
Occupying less than one third of the island's land, the tastefully built Six Senses Zil Pasyon is the only resort on the island, inviting guests to relax in a peaceful area of immense natural beauty. The resort is comprised of 30 pool villas overlooking the pristine Indian Ocean, decorated in refreshing turquoise colours and calming whites to reflect the vibrant natural surroundings.
The Seychelles is known as a spectacular water sports destination and a stay on the picturesque Felicite Island will not disappoint. Located outside the cyclone belt, it is ideally positioned to offer year-round activities such as diving, fishing, snorkelling and sailing. Hikers will be in heaven, as there are many scenic walking trails amidst the island's lush forests and rocky landscapes. In addition, Felicite organises a range of island-hopping boat trips for those who wish to explore the Seychelles further. Built into the rock formations, the Six Senses Spa is perched high above the Indian Ocean, overlooking the serene setting and providing visitors with an oasis of calm.
Why we love it
The Six Senses Zil Pasyon is only accessible by helicopter or boat, and travelling above the islands or across the glistening ocean, visitors can begin their Seychelles exploration even before landing.
