Set on one of the highest points of Felicite Island in the Seychelles, this ultra-modernistic private four bedroom luxury residence at the Six Senses Zil Pasyon Luxury Resort offers a virtually 360-degree panoramic view of the ocean and surrounding islands. This is truly the crowning jewel of the island.
Natural light is in abundance from the extensive floor-to-ceiling windows, enhancing the contemporary interior styling. A translucent plunge pool features in the upper level master bedroom, which also offers stunning island and ocean views. In fact, all four bedrooms feature ensuite bathrooms and continue the gallery feel with eclectic art pieces which add to their spirited design style. There’s a gourmet kitchen, a wine cellar and a private bar plus an expansive pool terrace with dining and sitting areas making it the perfect alfresco spot for relaxing with family and friends sharing this stunning residence.
Comprising collectible pieces of ultramodern furniture, contemporary and classical art, cultural antiques and first edition books, each room follows its own style and design, yet all blend together in harmony. From Helmut Newton’s classic black and white photography to King Kong-inspired creations, the main living room on the lower level is a gallery in itself, with unexpected works of art that pop up in each corner.
The living room leads to a terrace with a sundeck, sun beds, outdoor dining table and a 990 square foot (92 square meter) infinity swimming pool. It has an adjacent game room and an avant-garde bar, plus a gourmet kitchen equipped with leading-edge appliances and private wine cellar.
The lower floor features three high-style spacious bedrooms, each with its own ensuite bathroom with double vanities, an open-air bathtub and all offering striking island views. A staircase inspired by an old bookstore leads to the upper floor, which is reserved for the master bedroom. Large windows take the place of walls, offering panoramic views to the ocean. As a bespoke design element, the master bedroom features its own pool deck and a 177 square foot (16.5 square meter) glass-bottom swimming pool, which allows light to filter into the living space below. There is also a spacious bathroom with an iridescent mosaic that creates a colorful play of light.
With white being the predominant color, the natural light that comes through the floor-to-ceiling windows enhances the simplicity of the living room’s modern interior design. The granite rock formation embodies the ethos of stealth architecture, blending into the colors, textures and natural drama of this Seychellois island paradise.
