The Nautilus Maldives is privately owned island located in the heart of a UNESCO biosphere reserve in Baa atoll, a 35-minute seaplane flight from Velana International Airport. The resort offers guests s a laid-back ‘modern bohemian’ lifestyle where they can escape from their everyday lives, honestly be themselves and reconnect with their inner being, with nature and with their families – all in a beautiful Maldivian setting.

Guests will feel the same levels of comfort and ease as when at home at the accommodations provided by the resort which are called ‘Houses’ and ‘Residences’.Each of the 26 houses is a suite, with separate living room and bedroom. Just 15 one- and two-bedroom residences line the island’s beaches, hidden away among coconut trees, palms, and tropical greenery. Eleven one- and two-bedroom houses stand on stilts over the lagoon.

The three Restaurants have flexible opening hours and guests can explore ‘unscripted dining,' meaning the freedom to order off the menu if that’s how they feel. While there will be menus in each of the three restaurants, these are seen as starting points for a discussion with the chef about what the guest would like to eat rather than as set guidelines for what can be ordered.

The spa treatments can happen without an appointment and specialise in the bespoke, designing wellness programmes and daily rituals that refresh and relax, pamper and protect. Guests can salute the sun at dawn, discover alternative healing, join complimentary wellness classes or craft their path to restoration.

Watersport activities such as snorkelling, kayaking in a transparent canoe, or stand-up-paddle boarding are free: guests only need to decide when they want to go.Guests can look forward to many adventures such as trips to world-renowned Hanifaru Bay to swim amongst whale sharks and manta rays, diving on iridescent coral reefs, exploring remote sandbanks and deserted islands picnic in hand or just cruising the ocean in a custom yacht.
