The achingly gorgeous Six Senses Zil Pasyon in the Seychelles has upped its multi-gen travel game, with the addition of two new palatial residences. Built on a granite hillside above the rest of the resort, the three- and four-bedroom abodes are architectural marvels of steel and glass that seem to grow out of the rocky landscape.
Both residences are set over two levels, with a window-wrapped master suite and glass-bottom plunge pool on the upper level, and the remaining en suite bedrooms, communal areas and main family infinity pool on the lower floor. Light pours into the 12-foot high communal dining room and living area via floor-to-ceiling windows and the glass bottom of the pool above, and the poolside terrace commands spectacular views of the Indian Ocean beyond.
A private kitchen means personal chefs can prepare lunch or dinner in the comfort of the residence; an option that will come in handy if you’re travelling with the entire family. Guest experience managers (GEMs) are on hand to tailor make itineraries suitable for all, and there’s always a buggy on standby to take guests down to the main resort, where the Six Senses Spa draws inspiration from the natural environment of the island setting, and six restaurants offer plenty of options for intimate dining when it’s time for a night away from the family
The only resort on the jaw-dropping island of Félicité, Zil Pasyon has a further 30 one- and two-bedroom pool villas dotted across the island, from beachfront escapes to hillside retreats. The three-bedroom residence starts from US $11,421 per night and the four-bedroom residence from US $12,182
