Six Senses Zil Pasyon
Seychelles, Indian Ocean
Promising that desert island experience – without leaving you feeling truly deserted – this Crusoe-like retreat is the only resort on the private island of Félicité, in the Seychelles. Featuring a mere 30 Villas and two Residences, if you could dream up an island hideaway, this boutique beach escape would surely be it. Every villa is trimmed with a stunning infinity pool. Its three beaches are dusted with soft white sand and embellished with dramatic boulders for a postcard-finish. Its main pool sits alongside breaking ocean waves to add a sensational backdrop. Its daytime diversions let you flit from water sports to nature trails with picnics. And its night scene brings you films under the stars, sophisticated dining, and tempting tipples in The Wine Vault and Lakanbiz rum bar. It’s no wonder the magazine editors at Condé Nast Traveler added Six Senses Zil Pasyon to their Gold List in 2018.
