Making every guests’ island experience unforgettable, The Nautilus, among others, just this.

The Nautilus Maldives

Explore what makes The Nautilus one of the best private island resorts in the world …

  1. Bespoke beyond belief

At The Nautilus, we understand that our guests expect and deserve nothing short of world class service. That’s why we have placed personalisation at the very heart of everything we do. Whether it’s an individualised education programme for our little islanders at our Young Wonderers, a tailored four hour long Solasta Spa journey, or even an impromptu sandbank getaway with curated dishes, The Nautilus delights in creating deeply personal and meaningful moments.

The Nautilus House Masters offer full butler services and even contact guests ahead of their stay to begin personalising their House or Residence, experiences and take note of any culinary preferences.

  1. Internationally recognised for excellence

Despite The Nautilus opening just two years ago, it has already gained phenomenal international recognition.

Starting with 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 was subsequently recognised within Condé Nast Traveller’s highly prestigious UK ‘The Gold List’ 2021 as well as Tatler’s renowned Travel Awards 2021 as ‘Best Private Island Retreat’. Most recently, The Nautilus has also been listed within the Condé Nast Traveller Middle East Gold List 2021.

  1. Home from Home

We understand at The Nautilus that sometimes all you need to relax is just you and your loved ones within the luxury of your private House or Residence.  That’s why your House Master is ready to organise and help plan perfectly curated moments for you to enjoy. From bespoke dinners with accompanying live music to private pool parties in your temperature controlled infinity pool or even creativity classes, The Nautilus makes you feel at home no matter what activity is being enjoyed.

  1. Every guest is a VIP

At The Nautilus, there are no preconceptions or judgements. You are free to do and to be as you please. That’s why even from the very first moment you arrive in the Maldives you are treated as you should be – as a VIP.

Exclusively at The Nautilus, you can enjoy the unique CIP arrival service whereby you will be greeted directly on the runway of your private or commercial flight at Maldives’ international airport. With immigration, baggage and customs being dealt with on your behalf, you can simply relax and begin to enjoy The Nautilus’ seamless service.

  1. A private island all to yourself

Enabling privacy is at the very heart of The Nautilus’ offerings. Creating intimate and beautifully discreet moments is what we do best.

That’s why we offer our guests the option to experience ultimate privacy, The Nautilus’ island buy-out. This package allows you to embrace extraordinary moments in complete privacy and is the ultimate expression of liberation with an entire island at your command.

We’d love to help you begin crafting your Nautilus journey. To enquire, contact at any time, or find out more here.
