Seychelles builds isle of passion


PER Aquum Resorts, Spas & Residences, creator of the award winning Huvafen Fushi in the Maldives, is joining forces with local and international investors to announce its newest development – Zil Pasyon.

The Creole term for Isle of Passion, Zil Pasyon is an array of 28 designer hilltop residences situated on Félicité Island, an undeveloped private island in Seychelles.
Seychelles, a collection of 116 islands off the east coast of Africa in the Indian Ocean,  and has only recently opened to foreign purchasers, Seychelles offers home ownership benefits, including tax advantages, national residency, political and economic stability and a safe living environment.
Zil Pasyon designed by London architect Richard Hywel Evans, will fuse Per Aquum’s creative signature of barefoot elegance and naturally modern design with Félicité Island’s pure natural beauty. Each private villa will be uniquely crafted to melt into its natural surroundings, respecting Per Aquum’s firm commitment to minimal environmental impact, while unique design features such as swimming pool ceilings, refined interactions between light and materials and naturally breathtaking views will conspire to redefine concepts of time, space and luxury for the 28 villas.
Complementing the residences will be a selection of 35 premium resort villas and an array of desirable resort amenities set to unleash a rare mix of luxury, indulgence and sensual living for villa owners and resort visitors alike.
Zil Pasyon villa owners will have full privacy, with secured access to residences, as well as such privileges as a private helicopter landing pad, personal butler service, dedicated concierge services and on-site property management.  Villa owners will also have privileged access to resort amenities, which include a water sports centre, tennis courts, fine dining, infinity swimming pools and the world’s first Rock Wine Cave, a wine cellar nestled into a natural rock façade for wine tasting sessions and private degustation dinners. Villa owners will also enjoy whole ownership, with the flexibility to participate in a rental programme.
