Plunge pools are not a particularly unusual feature in posh hotels and villas.

But luxury hotel and spa chain Six Senses has taken them to another level – by putting them in ceilings, with transparent floors.

As you can imagine, these human aquariums make for quite spectacular holiday snaps.

The amazing ‘ceiling pools’ can be found in the three and four-bedroom residences at Six Senses Zil Pasyon on the stunning private island of Félicité in the Seychelles.

Which can only be reached by helicopter or boat.

Yes – it’s exclusive. And definitely one for the post-lockdown lust-list.

The resort, fringed by dramatic granite boulders and pristine, picture-perfect beaches, occupies one third of the island’s land total and boasts 30 villas and 17 private residences.

The rest of the island, Six Senses says, is ‘left to the bounteous nature and wildlife’.

It continues: ‘Every residence offers the maximum level of privacy, space and comfort and the ultimate luxury island lifestyle.

The pools are perhaps the stars of the show at the residences, but they do have other eye-catching features - fully-equipped gourmet kitchens and marble bathrooms, for instance
