Félicité Island is the fifth largest island in the Seychelles archipelago. This privately owned island is run by Six Senses Zil Pasyon resort in close relation with the Seychelles National Park Authority, since Félicité Island is part of the Marine Protected Area (MPA) and two-thirds of the island consists of Ramos National Park.
Consistent with the commitment of sustainable development, Six Senses Zil Pasyon has developed programs to conserve energy and invites guests to share the responsibility to offset their carbon footprint. The resort manages its own production of high-quality drinking water and an organic vegetable garden also supports the ultimate aim of self-sustained food and beverages on the island, Special efforts are given to waste reduction, with zero-waste and plastic-free initiatives which engage both staff and guests. Additional initiatives, including a reforestation project, sea turtle monitoring and coral restoration add to the nature protection and conservation commitment of the resort and contributes to maintain Félicité Island as a pristine paradise.
