Located on Félicité, a private island located in Seychelles, lies the stunning Six Senses Zil Pasyon Spa. Félicité is one of the most dramatically beautiful isles in the 115-island nation, featuring massive granite boulders and picture-perfect beaches. Measuring 652 acres, the resort embraces and celebrates nature, while offering every creature comfort. With its prime location outside of the cyclone belt, it offers perpetual summer.
The resort occupies one third of the total land, and is a 20-minute helicopter journey from Seychelles International Airport, located on the main island of Mahé. Six Senses Zil Pasyon presents 28 one-bedroom pool villas and two two bedroom pool villas, plus several private residences. Every villa offers seclusion embraced by tropical vegetation, unsurpassed vistas of the ocean, a private infinity-edge pool and its own GEM (Guest Experience Maker) butler service.
FLORA AND FAUNA
The landscaping concept for this resort is habitat restoration. The authentic Seychelles environment is supported using only plants, shrubs and trees indigenous or endemic to Seychelles. No exotic flowers have been imported to Félicité, despite this being the quickest and easiest way to landscape a new resort.
As a result of 10 long years of habitat restoration on Félicité in preparation for this resort, the biodiversity is now far more rich and varied. Guests can experience authentic species of trees and plants in their natural settings.
This spa facility is poised to be one of the most dramatic spas in the world in terms of location and design. The spa is spread over towering rocks, boulders and oceanfront. It includes five individual double villas for treatments uniquely designed for each area. The Rock Villa is built between the large granite boulders, while the Cave Villa has its own private steam shower.
The Ocean Villa is situated right above the water with 180-degree ocean views, and the Nature Villa incorporates garden and trees as part of the villa design. Finally, there is the Floating Villa, built on a large rock and extending all the way out to create a suspended feeling. To further complement your wellness journey, the spa also features a sauna, saltwater pool, steam, yoga and meditation pavilion and nail bar.
Spa experiences are designed around the health-giving properties of the islands’ flora and fauna, the natural rock shading and calming sounds of the ocean. For minimal intrusion on the landscape, lightweight timber steps and a rope bridge link the spa, while unmatched views can be enjoyed from the treatment villas, yoga pavilion and pool deck.
It offers a wide range of holistic wellness, rejuvenation and locally inspired beauty treatments. These are paired with an extensive menu of signature therapies and the recently launched Six Senses Integrated Wellness programme, administered under the guidance of Six Senses expert therapists.
