Six Senses Zil Pasyon Seychelles

Accommodations

Six Senses Hotels & Resorts In Seychelles, Zil Pasyon boasts 28 one-bedroom pool villas (including Panorama for views and Oceanfront for calming ocean sounds) and two two-bedroom pool villas. With creative design, ultra-sleek finishing, and vistas across the Indian Ocean, the three- and four-bedroom Residences are our best-kept secrets.

The Villas

One- and two-bedroom villas with unparalleled ocean views, private infinity pools, and GEM (Guest Experience Maker) butler service are surrounded by tropical flora and provide unsurpassed ocean vistas, private infinity pools, and GEM (Guest Experience Maker) butler service.

The Residences

There are six senses. The Zil Pasyon Residences brilliantly encapsulate the concept of stealth architecture,' combining remarkable design with the natural beauty of its surroundings. It is only by seeing that one can believe. Experiencing is a form of love.

From its hilltop location, each three-, four-, and five-bedroom property takes advantage of the unobstructed, panoramic views of the Indian Ocean. Each property features its own infinity pool with sundeck, as well as a private pool and floor for each Master Suite.

The Swimming Pool

The long, unheated pool is encircled by a pool deck with sun loungers and cargo-net hammocks, making it ideal for families. Koko, a poolside bar, quenches customers' thirst. Views of Coco Island, Sister Islands, and Praslin Island may be seen from the pool and surrounding terrace. In the spa, there's also a little pool.

The Pool

The Spa

The selection of highly sumptuous facial treatments at Six Senses Spa Zil Pasyon sounds quite appealing... African-inspired treatments (fig- and green coffee-infused body wraps; rose-crystal masks) are offered in five private beach-style pavilions nestled among the hotel's rocky outcroppings. A yoga pavilion and a saltwater soaking pool with a sundeck are also available.

Sustainability

The hotel is committed to environmental stewardship: all of the cuisines is organic and grown on-site or locally sourced. Greywater is re-used to water the hotel's plants, and eco-friendly cleaning products, bath products, and light bulbs are utilized throughout the property. The hotel contains solar panels and a desalination plant, and it also supports a Félicité Island habitat restoration initiative.

The hotel restaurant

Ocean Kitchen, an alfresco eatery on a wooden deck near the beach, is run by chef Christian Pederson. In the open kitchen, patrons can watch the chefs' fillet and fry fish; fish is served hot from the barbeque grill, and a bread oven fills the space with an enticing aroma as freshly baked loaves emerge. Hardcore carnivores take note: only pescetarian-approved protein is available here; but, you won't miss getting your chops around a Chateaubriand – all sea-foraged stuff is exquisite. Ingredients are organic and farmed on the island, or they're sourced locally from nearby waterways and islands. Begin with the freshly baked focaccia bread, then go on to the daily catch. Island Café serves a delectable buffet breakfast of fruits and pastries in the mornings, as well as an à la carte menu of made-to-order eggs and other items; drinks and snacks are available all day, and the lunch and dinner menus are spice-packed affairs with a mix of European, Asian, and African fare.

Hotel bar

The poolside Koko bar is open all day and is situated on the water's edge; delicious drinks, both shaken and stirred, are made using local, organic ingredients. Make a beeline for one of the seaside hammocks or catamaran nets and get an icy Kokolada. Samosas, spring rolls, and other snacks are available throughout the day if you work up an appetite in the pool. The rum-soaked Lakanbiz bar opens in the nights, channeling the types of hangouts where local Kalu — a strong rum cocktail – was formerly enjoyed, with its low leather chairs, vintage furnishings, and moody lighting. Order a jar of house-made rum and sip till the bossa-nova beats make you sway.

Last order

Breakfast is served from 7.30 a.m. till you've had enough. The Island Café and Ocean Kitchen offer flexible lunch and dinner hours, and private dining in the Wine Vault can be arranged upon request. Koko bar is open 24 hours a day, while Lakanbiz is open from 5 p.m. until 12 a.m.

Room service

Any time of day or night, order from a slightly pared-down restaurant menu; we're particularly fond of in-villa breakfasts.

Activities

Snorkeling, hiking, kayaking, cooking lessons, outdoor film evenings, petanque, and croquet are all available on the island. You can also take a boat to one of the nearby islands of La Digue, Praslin, Aride, or the Curieuse Sister Islands, which are all within 30 minutes of each other. Aride Island is great for birdwatchers, La Digue Island offers a coastline cycling tour, and Praslin Island's main attraction is the white-sand Anse Lazio Beach.

Six Senses is a location that appeals to the senses. Zil Pasyon is located on Félicité Island, which has year-round sunshine and white-sand beaches with magnificent granite rock formations. Transfers are required; guests will be contacted by the hotel directly to arrange their preferred mode of transportation.
