The Nautilus



Located in the UNESCO biosphere reserve of Baa Atoll, The Nautilus Maldives is a luxury bohemian hideaway which celebrates freedom and individuality, where guests are encouraged to be themselves and shape their own personal journey. With a total of only 26 keys, The Nautilus, which can also be taken exclusively as a private island, offers a choice of Beach or Ocean Houses inclusive of nine awe inspiring Beach or Ocean Residences. Accommodation is perfect for groups or families, sleeping anywhere from four up to twelve guests at The Nautilus Mansion. Dining is “unscripted” and is about liberating the palate.

There is nothing so pedestrian as dress codes, opening and closing times or tray charges; menus at overwater fine dining restaurant Zeytoun, beachside grill Ocaso, poolside bar Naiboli and the relaxed Thyme ‘all day dining’ are for inspiration only. Each and every House is attended by a dedicated private butler, taking care of every whim and need whenever they arise. A beautiful overwater spa (using products by Maison Calulières and Omorovicza), a liveried fleet of yachts and a seaplane, beautiful 'boho-luxe' interiors and a breathtaking house reef offer a quintessential Maldives experience at the highest level, without need for gimmicks.

Understatement is king at The Nautilus; it whispers to discreet high net worth travellers who wish to fly under the radar. In his 1870 classic Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea, Jules Verne described his legendary Nautilus as a “masterpiece containing masterpieces”; launched in Spring 2019, The Nautilus Maldives is quickly earning a similar reputation.
