A safe holiday haven and restorative retreat

Since the outbreak of Covid-19 and its related challenges, we’ve all been much more aware of health – and how it’s such a precious gift. We’ve also been reminded of how precious family is, and time together, and how important these simple pleasures are to our souls, to our emotional and mental health.

And, as The Nautilus specialises in enhancing these pleasures – in the ultra-luxurious setting of a crystalline lagoon, soft sandy beaches, lush gardens and a tropical climate – there is arguably no better destination for the discerning traveller.

In this light, we’ve put together a number of reasons why The Nautilus offers a wonderful, paradise hideaway with peace of mind.

1. Looking after your health holistically – body, mind and soul

At The Nautilus, you’re invited to bask in the healing powers of nature – vitamin D from the ample sunshine, fresh sea air, revitalising green spaces – and to enjoy finest food and gentle exercise. These restorative essentials are further complemented by the many soul-nourishing experiences on offer, from spa treatments to underwater journeys and family gatherings around an outdoor cinema, or even simple connection with the sublime beauty of nature – each moment bringing you closer to serenity in safety, and to perspective on what matters most.


2. A social bubble: total privacy, unimpeded

As a castaway holiday destination in the middle of the Indian Ocean, our private island’s location means that it’s not only unparalleled in scenic beauty, but also naturally secluded from the rush and crowds of modern life. As a one island, one resort concept, The Nautilus offers a natural ‘bubble’ setup that ensures limited social interaction.

What’s more, our particular piece of utopia is exceptionally exclusive, with just 26 houses and residences available, each generous space situated at a comfortable distance from the other – uncrowded, by design. Total privacy has guided our vision from The Nautilus’s initial conception, and resident numbers are low even at full capacity. For an extra-special and secure stay, the entire island can even be booked out for the exclusive use of you and your loved ones.


3. The secluded safety of home – in paradise

Inspiring a sense of the comforts of home has been one of our desires from the very beginning – to offer guests exquisite comfort and personalised accommodation, an intimate home environment styled with bohemian whimsy and sophisticated luxury.

Our spacious abodes, complete with private temperature-controlled infinity pool, extensive sun deck, gorgeous views and bespoke, in-room options for dining and spa treatments, invite you to enjoy the indulgences of an island escape in the select company of your family or friends, within the extra safety of your haven within a haven – should you wish. Your dedicated House Master sees to your every need and preference, ensuring minimal contact with any other guests or staff.

Should you want to venture beyond your boundaries, every one of our signature experiences – snorkelling with manta rays, luxury yacht escapes, sandbank barbecues – are available as private, tailormade adventures, providing social distancing while still allowing once-in-a-lifetime memories to be made.

4. Simple, uncrowded travel: no queues

Getting to our Maldives locale is also a stress-free, seamless and safe affair. From the moment you land at Velana International Airport, you are ushered straight to the CIP lounge, where your immigration, customs and baggage matters are handled on your behalf while you relax with complimentary refreshments, far from the queues.

A private seaplane waits to whisk you directly to The Nautilus, or you can opt for the standard shared seaplane transfer: either way, these aircrafts are sterilised and exposure to others is significantly reduced. Once you arrive on our shores, your personal House Master will escort you to your house or residence for a private, in-room check-in.

5. A wholehearted commitment to your health and safety

The safety of our guests is our absolute priority, and we have thorough measures and protocols in place to ensure this priority is adhered to by every member of our team. We’ve implemented the Covid-19 guidelines issued by the World Health Organization and our local authorities, all of which are outlined in detail in our Travel Guide FAQs. For your extra convenience, we also offer 24-hour PCR testing at the resort as well as flexible booking options.

Please don’t hesitate to reach out by emailing if you have any other questions or concerns. We sincerely look forward to welcoming you to an escape from cares and crowds.
