The 652-acre (263-hectare) Félicité Island is one of the most dramatically beautiful and unspoiled islands of the 115-island nation that is the Seychelles. With massive granite boulders fringing the shoreline and picture perfect beaches it is the island’s dramatic beauty will that make it the perfect location for the new Six Senses Zil Pasyon opening in the fall 2016.

True to Six Senses heritage of creating exceptional guest experiences in places of incredible beauty, the 30 villa Six Senses Zil Pasyon occupies just one third of the island’s land total – the rest is left to the beauty of nature and wildlife. The resort includes 30 villas plus 17 private residences. There will also be six distinctive dining and bar venues on the island, sport and leisure facilities, three pristine sandy beaches and an outdoor main pool.

A highlight of any Six Senses resort is of course the Six Senses Spa which will feature nearly 7,000 square feet (650 square meters) of spa space spread over 19,000 square feet (1,765 square meters) of towering rocks, boulders and oceanfront. The resort also features the Trouloulou Kid’s Villa, an interactive camp just for children between 4 and 12 years old.

Drawing upon the renowned Six Senses perspective of providing innovative and extensive facilities wedded to environmental responsibility, the resort has been brilliantly designed to embrace the untouched picturesque landscape of the island. Designed by Six Senses Architecture and Design team and Richard Hywel Evans of Studio RHE in London, the resort features contemporary architecture and interiors that perfectly complement the island environment.

Each villa offers great privacy, embraced by tropical vegetation and spacious grounds and most importantly unsurpassed vistas of the ocean and a private infinity pool. The 28 one-bedroom pool villas and two (2) two-bedroom pool villas range from 2,150 square feet (200 square meters) to 5,380 square feet (500 square meters).

The resort’s main swimming pool is set at the water’s edge where the ocean’s waves break over a rock wall. There are also three white sand beaches to choose from and the chance to swim with turtles. Other activities include Trouloulou – the kids’ villa with a two-story tree house and archeological sand pit; cooking classes; indoor screening room, signature outdoor Cinema Paradiso and library. There is also Boulodrome – a petanque court and Laboutik which will sell select designer clothing, swimwear, local artwork and home décor. Something unique will be the island’s numerous scenic and inspirational walking trails which vary in length from 2 miles (3.2 kilometers) to 4 miles (6.4 kilometers).


The resort is located 30 nautical miles northeast of Mahe. Guests reach the island via a 20-minute helicopter journey or a 90-minute boat trip. Villas rates start at EUR 1,200 per night on a bed and breakfast basis. For additional details, contact your travel specialists or visit
