The Nautilus Maldives


Imagine a private island resort where you can dance to the rhythm of your own drum, where all your needs and wants are catered for with unfaltering personal service, where even children can discover its magic under the guidance of The Nautilus Maldives’ Young Wonderers team. This could be just what’s been missing until now.

The Nautilus offers an unforgettable ultra-luxe holiday experience for every family with its 26 beach and ocean houses and residences, which provide fully customizable luxury holiday experiences tailored specifically for them. Enjoy queue-free airport VIP service as well as delicious gourmet deli canapes served around the pool for free.

Luxury Beach Villas

The Nautilus Maldives offers just 26 beach and overwater villas (or ‘houses’) located on its private island in Baa Atoll Unesco Biosphere Reserve, making for high-end luxury at its most relaxed. Here, the laidback atmosphere invites guests to embrace its name’s current bohemian lifestyle.

After a 20-minute flight to Velana International Airport, a violet-purple seaplane awaits your arrival and whisks you off to the resort, arriving on an idyllic stretch of shoreline dotted with coconut palms. Here, your experience becomes that of being castaway; its waters sparkling with vibrant marine life.

Once settled into your beach or overwater villa, days unfold to their own rhythm: from spontaneous aquatic adventures to relaxing spa visits and lavish minibar upgrades – with your House Master always on hand to personalise minibar selections or satisfy passing whims faster than you can say ‘pina colada, please!

There’s also a gym to help keep you in tip-top condition, while those looking for more relaxing activities and classes can head overwater to Solasta Spa – designed with bohemian lifestyle in mind, its wellness program encourages visitors to reconnect with themselves as well as nature and their loved ones.

People seeking an active getaway can take part in snorkeling tours of Hanifaru Bay or go scuba diving with experienced guides, while there is also the opportunity for various other watersports activities and evening fishing excursions that offer breathtaking sunset views.

The Naiboli Pool Bar

The Nautilus Maldives takes an unconventional approach to sun-kissed tropical vacationing. As soon as guests land at Velana International Airport in Male, they are welcomed into a VIP lounge for customs and immigration clearance before being transported via sea plane to their private island paradise within the UNESCO-protected Baa Atoll – making their visit truly relaxing and luxurious!

Your personalized beach house experience doesn’t end once you arrive – just take advantage of it to relax on one of many cozy sunloungers or splash in your private pool and soak up some rays! Early risers may enjoy taking part in thrilling deep-sea fishing excursions before returning for an evening feast that features everything you caught!

Dinner at Zeytoun is an equally indulgent affair, featuring three restaurants and a bar that specialize in providing tailor-made culinary journeys tailored to each of their guests. Indulge in Mediterranean, Arabic and Latin-American fare at Zeytoun; Latin American and Japanese grill specialities from Ocaso; or sample international selections at Thyme. There’s even the option for private dining either at your beach house or throughout the island with no set opening hours in place!

Solasta Spa provides relaxing treatments using premium organic products from Maison Caulieres and Omorovicza. However, what really stands out is Nautilus Mansion; an eye-catching sandcastle designed by the resort owner as his vision of an ideal beach house.

The Nautilus Mansion

Inspired by the organic form of a nautilus shell, our two-story beach and ocean houses offer effortless chic in their design. Curved lines and spiralled elements echo our “new bohemian” philosophy – our belief that breaks free of routines to truly connect with those you meet through relationships. Inside, handpicked decor and furnishings reflect this new bohemian spirit while attesting to our boutique hotel’s unpretentious luxury.

The Nautilus Maldives offers 26 beach and overwater houses and residences that make up its private island retreat, perfect for multi-generational travel. Select between an intimate one-bedroom overwater house for two, or opt for the three-bedroom Nautilus Mansion; each home comes equipped with dedicated butler service bringing unparalleled luxury into play as well as its own infinity pool that overlooks the beach.

Arriving at Velana International Airport in Male, The Nautilus team members will greet you in the VIP lounge to take care of immigration and customs for you, without you needing to queue. After passing through immigration and customs, our sea plane will escort you directly to Baa Atoll–a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve–where our private-island paradise awaits.

At The Nautilus Maldives, a variety of opportunities await to make your holiday unforgettable. From pampering spa treatments to pirate-themed treasure hunts, this resort provides activities and facilities designed to delight every member of your party from infants through grandparents – not to mention no set dining times and flexible menus that allow families to customize their experiences!

The Nautilus Restaurant

The Nautilus Resort, nestled within the UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve of Baa Atoll, offers highly personalized bohemian hideaways that cater to free spirits’ every whim and timetable. Boasting 26 beach and overwater hideaways – some offering private pools and butler service – The resort caters to free spirits who live by their own rhythm.

At Maldivian resorts, our can-do mentality extends throughout. Your house master will email ahead and tailor your minibar selection, arrange watery excursions to bucket-list dive spots and quickly anticipate any shifting whims – often before they can even finish saying ‘pina colada, please.”

Dining here is truly unique; each of the four equally inviting restaurant options has no set opening or closing times, and their daily changing menu reflects seasonal changes and freshest produce. Begin your day right with an indulgent brunch at Thyme – an all-day dining venue offering buffet and cook to order offerings ranging from classic avocado toast and porridge dishes to Peruvian and Latin American inspired selections.

After lunch, head to Zeytoun for an exciting culinary journey of unique infusions and lesser-known spices and flavours. Or if you prefer, in-villa dining offers another convenient option, where a dedicated team of chefs will create a menu specifically designed around your dietary requirements – in line with Ananda’s cuisine philosophy, which incorporates six fundamental food tastes of sweet, sour, salty, pungent bitter and astringent as well as three macronutrients (protein fat and carbohydrates).

The Nautilus Spa

Imagine yourself on an idyllic private island, surrounded by crystal-clear waters and pearl-white beaches – where every moment can be taken advantage of as you please each and every day. Well, that place exists, it’s called The Nautilus Maldives – so don’t just dream!

Baa Atoll’s UNESCO Biosphere Reserve features 26 Beach and Ocean Houses that offer total privacy and exclusivity – each one providing total seclusion, with each house boasting its own living room, freshwater pool, furnished sundeck and breathtaking ocean views. Many book multiple villas at once to create their ideal private retreat while others come for romantic and rejuvenative stays over several weeks or more.

As soon as you arrive at The Nautilus, a limousine will welcome you and transport you directly to a VIP lounge for immigration and customs processing – an experience not available at many other resorts. From there, a violet-purple seaplane will whisk you directly to your corner of paradise where you can unwind in style.

The Nautilus provides more than just indulgent spa services; its activities allow guests to fully experience all that Maldives has to offer – from manta ray dances and aquatic recreational excursions, to leading coral conservation programs that encourage guests to become actively involved during their stay.
