The Nautilus Maldives
The Nautilus is your luxury bohemian hideaway in the Maldives. A highly personalised, immensely private ultra-luxury island resort with just 26 beach and ocean houses and residences, where every experience is tailored to you. Where nothing is fixed and anything is possible. Where you are free to set your own beat; free to do – and to be – as you please.
Conceptualised by a Maldivian hospitality icon and visionary entrepreneur who was instrumental in creating many awardwinning resorts, The Nautilus is the result of his lifetime’s worth of expertise and represents what ultra-luxury should be – not just in the Maldives, but worldwide. The legacy of this visionary entrepreneurship is now carried forward by the next generation of the family. A celebration of the individual spirit, The Nautilus offers liberation and freedom unconditional.
Space to share, to meet, where guests are encouraged to be themselves and shape their own personal journey. Above all, The Nautilus champions it’s guests to reflect and celebrate with the people they’re with, in any way they choose.
Because in the end, it’s these simple, elemental pleasures – that ability to simply be – that form the greatest luxury of all.
The Nautilus has gained phenomenal international recognition within just one year, most notably within Condé Nast Traveller’s Readers’ Choice Awards 2020 as the ‘Best Resort in the Indian Ocean’ and being recognised among the top 3 ‘Best Resorts in the World’. The Nautilus is also within Condé Nast Traveller’s highly prestigious ‘The Gold List’ 2021 as well as Tatler’s renowned Travel Awards 2021 as ‘Best Private Island Retreat’.

Upon arrival at Velana International Airport, you are picked up directly from your aircraft and individually escorted to the exclusive CIP lounge (Maamehi Executive Lounge), regardless of the house category booked.
No queuing is required as all matters regarding immigration, baggage and customs will be handled on your behalf.
The Nautilus is just 30 minutes from Velana International Airport via The Nautilus' seaplane, shared seaplane, or, a 20 minute domestic flight from Male to Dharavandhoo domestic airport followed by a 20 minute yacht ride.
For guests arriving via personally chartered private jets, landing services are available at local domestic airport, Mafaaru, followed by a direct 2.5 hour transfer via our luxury yacht, Nautilus One.

The Nautilus offers 26 ultra-private beach and overwater houses, each a world unto itself with spacious bedrooms including en-suite bathrooms and outdoor showers, a separate living room, a wide sundeck and a private temperature controlled infinity pool. Steps from azure seas, these bohemian, suite-style sanctuaries each come with private butler service. Whole-island bookings offer the ultimate in exclusivity.

Unscripted dining – anywhere, anytime. The Nautilus’ three restaurants and two bars revel in the spontaneous, crafting bespoke culinary journeys tailored to each taste. Explore Mediterranean and Arabic cuisine at Zeytoun; LatinAmerican and Japanese delights grilled to perfection at Ocaso; international choices at Thyme; free-flow gourmet canapés from Naiboli poolside bar. Private in-residence or around-the-island dining, no opening hours, no constraints. Just a shared passion for extraordinary gastronomy.

The Nautilus offers a vast selection of activities that can be tailored to your every whim. Dine anywhere, anytime.
Take to the seas in a luxury yacht for an impromptu adventure. Dive into turquoise waters, immersed in the liberating embrace of the Baa Atoll, or host a private soirée in your own beach house, complete with loved ones, live music and seafood grilled to perfection. Or make the most of a private cinema screening on a distant sandbank under starry skies. These shared, intimate moments are the ones you’ll remember forever.

The overwater Solasta Spa has three glass-floored private treatment pavilions where tailored wellness programmes and daily rituals are supported by the natural and organic product lines of Maison Caulières and Omorovicza.
Each day is another opportunity to breathe, with daily complimentary scheduled yoga, fitness and meditation sessions.
