Zil Pasyon, Seychelles
Zil Pasyon. Island of Passion. A collection of visionary residences on one of the Seychelles' most tempting undeveloped private islands – Félicité. Perhaps the rarest find in the Seychelles. Unspoiled since Jurassic times. Dense masses of wildagave, mango trees and vanilla orchids. Catch its essence upon arrival by helicopter or boat.
Zil Pasyon is the only development on the 268 hectare island of Felicite, where 16 cutting-edge residences designed by award-winning London architect Richard Hywel Evans, creator of the world’s first underwater spa at Huvafen Fushi in the Maldives, are being surgically positioned between sheets of ancient granite and virgin forest. Along with the 16 residences, there will be a boutique and exclusive resort that wraps around the Northern end of the island by the beaches. With numerous dining options, a Spa that will be built amongst the vast granite boulders next to one of the beaches, a dive school and the first ever ‘rock wine cave’, this island really does provide the most luxurious and private service.
Zil Pasyon is also a truly outstanding environmental project, where rather than being just a Landscape Project, this is a Restoration Project to rehabilitate the island in areas that have been degraded in various ways. The ecologist Steve Hills is 2 years into a 12 year program to return the island to its original form, having completed a comparable project on the island of Fregate, also in the Seychelles.
Naturally modern, forward-thinking. Rock-solid presence. Two vast living levels enveloped by water. Three to five bedrooms. Smooth black granite partitions offset by an elegant play of materials, light and colours. Two pools per residence, one with a transparent base integrated into the ceiling, allowing light to ripple dreamily down. Private bird's-eye panoramas at over one hundred metres abovesea level. Symbiotic integration with nature. Three, four and five bedroom floor plans are available and the residences range from 612 – 1,460 m2, with prices starting from $4,600,000 up to $12,500,000.
