The Nautilus Maldives


What if a holiday in the Maldives could be done differently? More meaningfully? The Nautilus was created to answer that question. A bohemian hideaway set in the otherworldly beauty of Baa Atoll, a UNESCO biosphere reserve, this is an immensely private resort of only 26 beach and ocean houses where every guest should feel as if staying with an old friend.

Privately owned by a Maldivian entrepreneur, The Nautilus is his ultimate project, created to express his personal vision of the best that can be – not just in the Maldives, but worldwide. Designed as a celebration of the individual spirit, The Nautilus offers its guests liberation; freedom unconditional; space to share, to meet, to be themselves and shape their own personal journey. And, most of all, to celebrate the people they’re with, in any way they choose.

Only 26 beach and ocean houses line our shores – each a personal sanctum with its own separate living room and private pool, infusing the comforts of home with a bohemian whimsy that welcomes the barefoot life and where a House Captain (butler) conjures up daily magic.

Here is the world of unscripted dining; of free-spirited culinary journeys guided only by our guest’s desires. The Nautilus delights in veering off script, crafting bespoke culinary journeys in its three restaurants and two bars. This is a world where a menu is just a place to gather inspiration and meals are designed for our guests, whatever they want and whenever they want them. No opening or closing, no breakfast hours, no dress codes. Guests are invited to ‘come as you are’, enjoy great company and indulge in a shared passion for extraordinary cuisine.

The Nautilus is a world of elemental freedoms, a million miles from the nearest care. Here our guests simply enjoy the freedom of discovery: go star-gazing and catch a falling star; explore underwater kingdoms shimmering just offshore; walk along the beach at night and see the waters glow phosphorescent Be wild and free. Snorkel our rich house reef – a kaleidoscopic wonderland of incredible marine life just outside your door – or explore the world-renowned Hanifaru Bay to swim alongside whirling manta rays.

Our guests are the ultra-high net worth individuals who still feel the call of the wild in their soul; who may tread the carpets in the high corner-office suite but whose feet long to run barefoot on our beaches, unfettered and unjudged. Our guests are seeking that place where they can drop their mask and revel in the freedom of simply being themselves. We offer uninhibited comfort for an enlightened global audience – one that appreciates quality and revels in the luxury of unbridled independence. Because in the end they know it’s the simple, elemental pleasures – that ability to simply be – that form the greatest luxury of all.
