Embracing and celebrating nature, the resort offers every creature comfort within its 652-acre (264-hectare) tropical expanse. It is located 30 miles (55 kilometers) northeast of Mahé International Airport and is accessible by a scenic 20-minute helicopter journey or an exhilarating one-hour boat trip.

Six distinctive food and beverage venues serve cuisine inspired by flavors from the Seychellois spice route and an incomparable harvest from the surrounding waters. There’s very personal dining in the wine vault and chef’s table, with the archipelago’s exotic heritage celebrated with flavored and aged rums in an exotic traditional bar.
A Six Senses Spa nestles amongst towering boulders and offers a wide range of holistic wellness, rejuvenation and beauty treatments administered under the guidance of skilled therapists and regular visiting practitioners. There are five individual villas, sauna and steam rooms, a yoga and meditation pavilion and an elevated open-air saltwater pool with a sundeck.
Leisure activities focus on the beaches and pristine waters surrounding Félicité plus island-hopping boat trips. There’s inspirational island walking trails, while on the neighboring islands of Praslin and La Digue there’s golf, cycling and the opportunity to join a guided tour of the UNESCO World Heritage site Vallée de Mai.
