Paradise found

Island life doesn't get more luxe than this

Few have heard of Félicité Island in the Seychelles, and that can only be a good thing. The 263-hectare island is a cocoon unto itself, boasting dramatic granite boulders and Instagram-perfect beaches that'll inspired long, languid walks to nowhere. It's against this serene backdrop that the new Six Senses Zil Pasyon will open come fall this year.

With Six Senses' finely tuned sensibilities to all things luxe, you'll find only 30 villas and 18 private residences on this property. Through a clever use of stone, timber, and tile, each building is structured to blend right in with its surroundings. Expect nothing less than one-bedroom villas that come with generous sun decks and outdoor dining areas. Inside, vaulted ceilings catch the breeze while letting in plenty of light. 

There's plenty of water sports to keep you busy, but those who prefer to stay grounded can hike in the Coco de Mer Valley, cycle through La Digue, or head for a guided tour of Vallee de Mai, a UNESCO World Heritage Site in the heart of Praslin National Park.
