Six Senses Zil Pasyon is amongst 2015’s hottest new launches. But the resort won’t receive until end-2015. Let us say that like all good things it’s worth the tantalising wait. And this latest offering from Six Senses is more than just good- it’s bloody exhilaratingly beautiful.
The resort that weds innovative top-tier facilities and environmental responsibility occupies but one-third of the island affording immense expanses of virgin natural beauty. Think superbly designed all-wood villa’s have vaulted ceiling and vistas and vistas of ocean views. But contrasting the low-tech feeling is a decidedly high-tech property with every conceivable gadget.
Dining options include Island Home Café, a destination-dining locale showcasing predominately local Seychellois home cooking flecked with French, Italians and British influences. Here’s also where the exclusive Chef’s Table happens. Fetch fine wines to pair from the Wine Cellar that features an impressive collection of labels. If your tummy’s rumbling for a post-prandial shot then the Rum Bar offers aged rums. Enjoy grill thrill at oceanside Sea Grill where you can have the catch of the day, amongst other things. But with sexy villas so felicitously given to fantasy feasts, opt for in-villa dining if you’re feeling romantic.
As for the spa, the creators have placed it marvellously in a majestic rock formation close to the ocean. The inspired location turns energy from nature into a significant life force. The spa features signature Six Senses treatments but more fascinating are the locally-inspired specialty treatments with indigenous produce.
The resort’s main swimming pool is set at water’s edge with the ocean’s waves breaking over the rock wall and from the beach you can swim away with the turtles.
The height of romance is scaling the top of the hill to Sunset Point for a terrific twilight experience. It’s all about rushes of romance on passionate pinnacles! Ee wonder if this place is Zil Pasyon or Zil Passion?
