When building a new hotel or resort, companies have to have far greater considerations than just how to maximise profit.
Eco travel is big business and a recent arrival in the Seychelles is really doing its bit. Built on the private island of Félicité, Six Senses Zil Pasyon is a dream destination with a conscience. Some eight years in the making, the resort has painstakingly restored the island’s natural habitat using only plant life indigenous to the Seychelles, also reintroducing birds native to Félicité.
Energy conservation is also integral to the Six Senses ethos, with solar power being used across the island, meaning even taking a hot bath is an eco-friendly activity. And this type of praiseworthy practise is continued in the resort’s restaurants, which use fruit and veg grown in the organic garden for their culinary creations that encapsulate the best of Seychellois cuisine.
But as well as being responsible to its environs, Six Senses Zil Pasyon is also a stunning resort made up of 30 villas, all of which provide sea views and access to a range of on-site activities. Your next dream holiday just got a whole lot greener.
