Stay at the Six Senses Zil Pasyon
Félicité Island is a timeless island paradise, it’s beauty is delicate and fragile and it wouldn’t take much to ruin it. Fortunately, Six Senses have pulled off something truly remarkable with its Zil Pasyon resort. It’s luxurious, sure, but it’s more than that – it’s clever too. The entire 30 villa resort feels as if it’s grown organically out of the rock and jungle and been here forever. With two-thirds of the island left wild, you can pamper yourself in extreme luxury in the morning and then wander a maze of jungle tracks with the resort’s resident ecologist in the afternoon. If there is ever an island to disappear from the world on, this is it.
Félicité is in the heart of the Granite Islands, the resort is within 40 mins of ten other islands all worth a day trip. Praslin, where the Coco de Mer grows, is just a 15-minute flight, while the international airport on Mahé is a 20-minute helicopter hop.
This is an all-villa resort, so privacy is guaranteed. There are 28 single bed villas, a pair of two-bed villas and 17 uber-luxurious private residences. All are designed sympathetically to blend seamlessly into the island’s verdant greenery.
Who is it for
Zil Pasyon is ideal for guests who seek the highest standard of luxury without the environmental guilt that so often comes with it. The resort is relatively spread out, so maybe not the best destination for guests with mobility issues.
Amenities & Activities
Four beaches, a water sports centre, a spa spectacularly situated amongst the island's granite inselbergs, a personal Guest Experience Maker (GEM) for each villa. Day trips to neighbouring islands and an in-house ecologist for nature tours.
