Need A Winter Getaway? How About These New Beach Resorts In Remote Locales

This year's best new hotel openings have one thing in common: They're all are looking to the beach - and the more remote and untouched, the better. Travellers willing to spend long flights in exchange for long weeks in paradise will be rewarded by gleaming new resorts on private islands and pristine sands from Indonesia to Madagascar.

Six Senses Zil Payson, Seychelles

In each of the 30 private-pool villas at Six Senses Zil Pasyon, there’s a swing in the bathroom. Contemporary architecture touches like this are uncommon in the Seychelles nation of islands. Other features at the property include the restaurant Ocean Kitchen serving only the fresh catch of the day, three beaches and natural pools formed by massive granite boulders, and the signature Six Senses Spa with a focus on ancient holistic treatments. And since the resort is on Félicité, a private island a 20-minute helicopter flight away from the capital of Mahe, everything feels even more exclusive.
