Following the acclaimed launch of Six Senses Zil Pasyon last October, the hotly anticipated Six Senses Spa Zil Pasyon is now open.
Created by the Six Senses Architecture and Richard Hywel Evans of Studio RHE in London, the spa is completely immersed in the private island’s natural beauty of towering rocks, granitic boulders, lush jungle and the Indian Ocean.
Six Senses Spa Zil Pasyon is spread over 19,000 square feet of the island’s rugged environment and accentuates the island’s beautiful topography through its materiality, texture and form.
It is designed to be an integral part of the island’s ecosystem, a symbiotic experience of the surrounding environment and to mirror the existing landscape.
Anna Bjurstam, vice president, Six Senses Spas, commented: “At Six Senses Zil Pasyon we felt that nature was so dramatic that we could not tame it, instead we wanted nature to tame us.
“We looked at how nature could guide us in our design, and consequently we have treatment villas situated between rocks, on top of rocks and floating above the ocean.
“Even the yoga pavilion and wet area are not built inside a building – they are built on top of the rocks amongst lush foliage and the infinity-edge pool offers expansive sea views for exclusive spa guest usage.
“In addition, we focused on using natural materials such as wood and rock, chemical-free upholstery and smart biological lighting at night to ensure that the design supports our circadian rhythm.”
Six Senses Spa Zil Pasyon features an elevated open-air saltwater pool with a sundeck, sauna and steam rooms as well as a yoga and meditation pavilion.
A viewing deck has been positioned to offer some of the most spectacular views in the Seychelles and will also be used to host a variety of wellness classes.
The spa reception, located on top of a hill takes advantage of the sweeping sea views. It is home to the latest Six Senses retail collection including the exclusive yoga line by Ana Heart, natural skincare lines, resort wear, swimsuits, jewellery and accessories.
