20 Amazing Hotels In Striking Locations You Must Visit


Six Senses Zil Pasyon – Seychelles

From £1420 or $1843 per night (September 2021, Booking.com)

The Six Senses Zil Payson is the only resort on the Seychelles island of Félicité. While the resort takes up around the third of the heavily forested island, the rest is completely untouched.

This is a luxury, all-villa resort. Amongst the most impressive of the Villas is the Private Four Bed Villa, which may remind you of Tony Starks home in Iron Man with its dramatic hilltop location and modernistic design. Lying on one of the highest points of Félicité, from this villa is a 360-degree panoramic view of the ocean and surrounding islands.

A perfect day here could be spent island hopping on a luxury yacht over waters so clear that you will spot the turtles swimming beside you. End your day with private dining in the wine vault or watching the sunset from the hilltop, where staff will set up beanbags, candles, and champagne. To top it all off, ‘Cinema Under the Stars’ allows guests to watch a movie projected onto the big screen, curled up on a lounger surround by palm trees.

With no reminders of your regular life around for miles, you can’t get a more secluded spot than this.
