The Nautilus Maldives has been recognised amongst the Top 3 Resorts in the World as well as the Best Resort in the Indian Ocean within Condé Nast Traveller Readers’ Choice Awards 2020

The Readers’ Choice Awards are the most important awards in the travel industry, celebrating the best places, movers and fixers on the planet. The Readers’ Travel Awards have been running for 33 years, calling on their readers year after year to let them know which places and players they truly admire the most. We are extremely delighted to have won this prestigious award and would like to thank all Condé Nast Readers for their valuable vote. Thank you!

Here are a few reasons why The Nautilus has been awarded amongst the best resorts in the world:

  1. The Nautilus hospitality

The Nautilus hospitality is all about attentiveness, genuine care and professionalism. The Nautilus private butlers (House Masters) place meticulous attention to understand your needs and preferences. Above all, the service is highly discreet and personalised to its maximum, as you would expect from an ultra-luxury resort. It’s these details that we believe makes The Nautilus a true luxury resort in the Maldives.

2. The Freedom to simply be

A celebration of the individual spirit, The Nautilus offers liberation. Freedom unconditional. Space
to share, to meet, to be yourself and shape your own personal journey. And, most of all, to celebrate the people you’re with, in any way you choose. Because in the end, it’s these simple, elemental pleasures – that ability to simply be – that form the greatest luxury of all.

3. The Comforts of Home

With only 26 Houses and Residences, The Nautilus offers you immensely private accommodations to relax with loved ones. Each a personal suite-style sanctum with its own separate living room, expansive outdoor decking areas and private freshwater infinity pools with infinite views of the surrounding Baa atoll, The Nautilus allows you to experience A World Of Your Own Making. The private butler service is dedicated to ensure that every element of your House is tailored to you. Maldivian beach houses are renowned for their beauty, but The Nautilus combines this with comfort.

4. The Art of Bohemia

From framed vistas to colour schemes and the perpetual cylindrical motif taken from the nautilus shell, The Nautilus is a paradise compendium of rich architecture, design and consideration. Delve into the details of The Nautilus’ architecture and design, where seemingly superfluous details transform into absolute milestones of the island’s design ethos. The Nautilus is your luxury bohemian hideaway in the Maldives and one of the most exclusive hotels in the world.

5. Quintessentially Nautilus Experiences

There are many places of outstanding beauty to see in the Maldives, but The Nautilus takes this a step further with truly tailored experiences. From witnessing the Maldivian sunset with The Nautilus’ renowned ‘Cinema Under the Stars’ experience at any island location of your choice to an impromptu adventure upon Nautilus One, the island’s luxury yacht, The Nautilus is your island to make your own.

The private island’s overwater Solasta Spa is home to our first-class spa therapists who will curate bespoke spa journeys just for you.

6. Liberate Your Palate

Turn your every epicurean whim into a reality with dining at The Nautilus and experience our sensational unscripted dining. Where menus are merely suggestions and you are encouraged to veer off-script. Allow our chef to curate a dish based on the flavours and preferences you highlight and be amazed by their award-winning culinary masterpieces.

Our signature fine dining restaurant, Zeytoun, showcases Mediterranean and Middle-Eastern flavours whilst our al fresco grill, Ocaso, specialises in Japanese and Latin American cuisine. Thyme, our all day dining restaurant is the perfect spot for casual gastronomic delights throughout the day too.

7. The Unexpected is What’s Expected

The Nautilus delights in offering totally tailored experiences for every single guest we welcome on to the island. Whether you decide you fancy a massage and breakfast at 3am, or want to create an unforgettable experience by booking out the entire island for yourself, we delight in catering to your every whim and desire.
