Six Senses Zil Pasyon
July 17, 2023 - Coral-fringed beaches and massive granite rocks create an air of drama and beauty in the haven of perpetual summer: Félicité, Seychelles. Here, our residences at Six Senses Zil Pasyon welcome you to a home-from-home.
For us, wellness and sustainability transform a location into a haven. It is what is integrated into every element of the operation, from ongoing engagement with local associations to conservation efforts, architectural direction, building materials, and interior design. As nature provides the inspiration, Six Senses enhances and refines, ready for you to curate your own memories and claim your favorite couch spot.
Our larger accommodations are home-from-homes, sympathetic to each distinctive destination. We care deeply about natural resources and energy use, and these ethical design mantras are at the core of what we do.
Some architects seek to build daring structures that make people gasp. However, for London-based architects Studio RHE, the vision was to make the Seascape and The Sanctuary residences almost indistinguishable from the natural drama of an unspoiled private island. The vistas and rock formations offered by the private island of Félicité in the Seychelles archipelago were all the inspiration they needed. It’s a test of an architect’s lack of ego to design a home that appears almost invisible to the naked eye.
Architect Richard Hywel Evans from Studio RHE shares that the challenge was not to build but to blend. He created a meaningful, award-winning architectural design using local materials as far as possible so as not to detract but simply add to the natural environment, as he goes on to explain: “The residences are designed to emerge gently from the hillside as rough granite, the same material, and follow the hillside angle. The plan is able to react to each site individually to leave any unique features untouched while framing others.”
With an over-arching emphasis on space and total privacy on the island, the cliff-top Seascape and The Sanctuary residences are built right into the granite landscape. Hugged by stark silhouettes of granite boulders, azure waters, sublime beaches, verdant jungles, and rare flora and fauna, they offer a seductive and secluded space for uncompromising comfort.
Taking the plunge pool to the next level (ceiling level, to be exact), Richard tells us, “My favorite feature has to be the clear-bottom swimming pools over the main reception area; they provide cool light down to the room below and are a lot of fun!” This quirky touch perfectly embodies the ethos of ‘stealth architecture’ – blending striking design with the raw beauty of its surroundings.
Experience an elevated island lifestyle for families or friends in our Seascape or Sanctuary residence. Enjoy 20 percent savings on stays in shoulder and high seasons, along with daily breakfast, special welcome amenities, a dedicated Guest Experience Maker, and access to an exciting range of land and water activities.
Six Senses Zil Pasyon has created a spa facility that fits seamlessly between giant stone boulders beside the sea without moving a single rock. The ultimate at-one-with-nature location for your Warrior 2 yoga pose?
The spa includes five individual double villas: the Ocean Villa is set right above the sea with 180-degree ocean views; the glass-fronted Rock Villa is constructed between large granite boulders; the Cave Villa with its private steam shower and swinging day bed; the Nature Villa surrounded by lush foliage and trees, and, the Floating Villa built on a large rock with an outdoor deck for post-treatment relaxation.
There is an elevated saltwater pool with a sundeck, yoga and meditation pavilion, and sauna and steam rooms. A top deck has been strategically positioned for mesmerizing views over the sapphire ocean.
A favorite with guests who tell us that the photogenic pool is, “Beyond our wildest expectations, this place seeps into your soul, refreshes, reenergizes, and calls you to come back.”
