Marcelo: With so many luxury wellness travel offerings in the Seychelles, how does Six Senses Zil Pasyon stand out and differentiate from the competition?


Tamara: Our vision at Six Senses Zil Pasyon is to help people reconnect with themselves, with others and with the world around them. A holistic approach, everything that we do on the island puts wellness and sustainability at the forefront, from sourcing locally produced foods and products to offering spa experiences. The only resort on the island, Six Senses Zil Pasyon is a nirvana in itself. The private villas are secluded by their natural surroundings and offer guests peace and quiet among the ocean, forest and dramatic granite boulders.

Marcelo: With its idyllic environment, how can you explore the island of Félicité?


Tamara: We encourage our guests to explore the natural surroundings of the island and get out in nature as much as possible. The resort offers guided hikes through the forests of the island as well as guided snorkeling trips to explore the surrounding reefs. Six Senses Zil Pasyon runs a reforestation project on the island and guests are able to get involved by planting trees, receiving updates of their tree’s growth long after their departure from the island. Félicité has a number of turtle nests on the island and guests are able to witness the turtles hatch and make their way to the water. A staple of luxury wellness travel, Six Senses Zil Pasyon offers yoga, meditation and tai-chi lessons in different locations around the island, from the forests to the beach.

Marcelo: When we think of wellness we think of adults and couples, do you offer something special for families and kids?


Tamara: Six Senses Zil Pasyon has a kids club for little ones. From an organic gardening experience to meditation and animal yoga, the resort encourages kids to get out in nature as much as possible. On arrival, they receive an adventure backpack with an aluminium water bottle which they can take with them when they explore the island. The backpack includes a colouring activity book that teaches them how to care for themselves, others and the environment, as well as colour pencils filled with seeds that you can plant once you leave the island.
