Escape to this intimate and luxurious private island resort

The Nautilus Maldives

Hotel Description

The Nautilus Maldives invites you to enjoy an ultra-luxurious experience with absolute freedom, where every moment is tailored to you so you enjoy your time here exactly as you wish.

The Nautilus Maldives

Expect highly personalised service from the moment you arrive at this bohemian hideaway located in the stunning Baa Atoll. The resort boasts 26 immaculately presented beach and overwater houses, each of which benefits from a private pool and private butler service.

Relax on the beach, snorkel in the clear waters and explore the house reef or dive amongst whale sharks and manta rays in the world-renowned Hanifaru Bay. All non-motorised water sports are complimentary as is the use of snorkelling equipment throughout your stay.

Dining is a little different here at The Nautilus, with no opening and closing hours, no designated breakfast hours and no dress codes. You simply eat when you‘re hungry and bespoke culinary offerings will be created as you want and when you want. There are three excellent restaurants plus drinks, tapas, light bites and gourmet deli-style canapes can be delivered to you at your lounger or cabana by the pool after you've taken a leisurely dip - absolute bliss!

For total relaxation, Drift overwater spa has three treatment rooms and two relaxation lounges. The spa offers bespoke wellness programmes and daily rituals with freedom being paramount here, with no appointments and no pre-packaged spa journeys. Guests can also enjoy unlimited daily scheduled yoga, fitness and mediation classes.
