5 Reasons Why The Nautilus is Foodie Heaven

The Nautilus is the picture of paradise – whether you’re gazing out at the turquoise waters, marvelling at the underwater natural treasures or wandering the pristine sands of the beach. But did you know that The Nautilus is also a paradise for foodies? 

We’ve put together a veritable feast of epicurean experiences, created by our expert chefs, served in the style of our bohemian hideaway: laid-back, unscripted, ultra-luxurious.

Here are our top five reasons why our particular piece of paradise is an exceptional foodie destination.

1. Unscripted Dining at Its Finest

One of The Nautilus’s feature attractions is our dining concept: ‘unscripted’. Simply put, unscripted dining means your tastes, anywhere, anytime. It means that our style of meals, gourmet snacks and drinks is unhurried, unrehearsed, absolutely flexible and tailored to your particular needs. It’s inspired by our bohemian yet sophisticated approach to leisure getaways, an approach that combines spectacular architectural design with natural splendour, privacy with opportunities for like-minded company, world-class expertise with informal relaxation. Choose to dine indoors or on a secluded sandbank, at our superb restaurants or within the intimacy of your holiday home, to your own tastes or at the discretion of our award-winning chefs’ creativity, at midday or midnight. After all, what’s ultra-luxury without freedom of choice?

2. All-Day Breakfasts, Anywhere You Choose

At The Nautilus, breakfast is one of our favourite meals. There are just so many ways to enjoy it – from healthy mueslis and fresh juices to decadent champagne brunches. As such, we believe breakfast should be available all day long – and even all night – free from set serving times that limit long lie-ins or early rises. So whether you choose to start a day of activities with an energising smoothie, or to end it with a breakfast croissant; whether you delight in some eggs florentine on the beach, or a truly Maldivian breakfast aboard one of your luxury yachts, let your imagination and your whims guide the way.

3. Finest Dining ~ Zeytoun Restaurant

The Nautilus’s signature restaurant, Zeytoun, is waiting to wow you with its refined cuisine. Here, we specialise in Mediterranean and Middle Eastern infusions, spiced with rare, exotic flavours. Expect pure olive oils from the Aegean and fresh-baked breads; fragrant Turkish teas savoured slowly. Relax on the upper deck lounge with a pre-dinner gin and tonic or single malt – from the Maldives’ largest selection of these world-class spirits. There is no dress code; there is no strict menu. Our award-winning chefs are gifted in crafting off-the-cuff gastronomic masterpieces – tailored to your tastes.

And of course, Zeytoun’s taste sensations are matched by a feast for the eyes: the exquisitely designed restaurant hovers over a lagoon and features separate dining areas, each boasting a majestic sunset view.

4. Comfort Food at the Ultimate Poolside Lounge

Naiboli – our much-loved poolside bar lounge – is your go-to venue for the most mellow of luxury seaside dining. Think signature cocktails and gourmet tapas – served all day, every day, with our compliments. Think laid-back comfort à la pool loungers and cabanas. And imagine a poolside like no other: a sparkling infinity pool set against an endless ocean view, with live music lulling you into the slow shift to evening.

5. Private Dining ~ Indoors or Al Fresco

Enjoy the exclusive company of your loved ones, with all the trimmings of masterfully crafted cuisine. At The Nautilus, we believe that everything tastes better when it’s shared with the people you love. It’s in these intimate spaces and precious moments that time lingers longer and moments become lifelong memories. This mode of dining is also hyper-personalised to offer epicurean delights for every age and individual. Think seven-course feasts or casual barbecues, finger food or pizza snacks – within the comfort of your holiday home or in the seriously splendid outdoors, basking in moonlight or under the shade of palm trees, on a romantic ocean cruise or spread across beach blankets.

Whether you’re a lover of comfort food or an epicurean adventurer, The Nautilus offers plentiful selections of good old favourites or culinary innovations – to satisfy the desires of every kind of foodie.
