On the private island of Felicite, 20-minutes by helicopter from Mahe Island, Zil Pasyon embraces nature and offers real seclusion with just thirty luxuriously appointed pool villas, complimented by the renowned Six Senses hospitality. Extremely spacious, with high levels of privacy, most villas offer 'to die for' views; huge expansive windows open to connect with the deck and infinity pool. You also get the same panoramic views from your gorgeous bathroom!
There are many reasons to choose Six Senses Zil Pasyon, but your stay here is very much about the whole 'island experience': revel in a kaleidoscope of dining options; enjoy tailored activities and excursions at the Experience Centre; and witness the variety of local sustainability projects in action, including one that is growing coral. For families, younger guests (4-12 years) have the Grow with Six Senses programme of educational supervised activities to keep them intrigued. A particular highlight of a stay at Zil Pasyon, however, is the magnificent spa, perched spectacularly above the ocean between giant granite boulders. Be sure to leave time for a treatment (or two!) during your stay.
A Seychelles holiday at Six Senses Zil Pasyon is very much about the cuisine. The Island Café offers breakfast and dinner with European, African and Asian flavours as well as drinks and snacks throughout the day; the Ocean Kitchen offers fresh and simple fish from local waters for lunch and dinner; the Chef's Kitchen is an intimate live cooking table for a maximum of six guests who can interact with the chef as their meal is prepared; while the Wine Vault affords a private fine dining experience for two to eight guests.
The spa at Six Senses Zil Pasyon is truly magnificent. In an idyllic setting, with the sound of the sea all around, expert therapists offer a range of wellness and beauty treatments; combining detailed consultations and thorough nutritional advice, they devise highly personalised, tailored programmes. There is also a hammam, sauna, steam room as well as a yoga pavilion and a separate fitness centre features with the latest cardio equipment. Be sure to leave time for a spa treatment (or two!) during your stay.
Zil Pasyon's Experience Centre provides a range of sport and leisure facilities in addition to fishing trips and (PADI) diving. As well as water sports activities including snorkelling, sailing, kayaking and paddle boards, staff can arrange guided walking trails around Félicité, bird-spotting trips to nearby Aride Island, cycling tours of La Digue Island, plus cooking classes hosted by the resort's chefs. Day excursions can also be taken to La Digue and be sure to take the chance of some spectacular snorkelling around the crystal-clear waters of the nearby Grand Soeur islands and the Coco Island Marine Reserve.
Of course, any stay at Six Senses Zil Pasyon should not ignore its pristine white sand beaches. Anse Peniche is great for swimming; Anse La Coeur has superb snorkelling; while for a longer day on the beach, pick up a picnic lunch and head to the far end of Grand Anse. For a memorable special occasion, enjoy an amazing 'sunset on the rocks' experience high above the resort. Perfect for honeymoon or anniversary celebrations, staff will set-up everything including your own relaxing bean bags and Champagne cocktails!
The Six Senses ethos is very much about conserving the environment. It is passionate about sustainability policies, many of which you'll see on the island - from its own drinking water bottling plant, heat recovery water heaters to the fast growing organic farm; they are even growing their own coral.
Whenever you choose to visit Six Senses Zil Pasyon, it also combines perfectly with other Seychelles islands. Talk to the experienced Mahlatini staff and let them tailor your own Seychelles Island-hopping itinerary.
