Full accommodation information

The Nautilus Beach & Ocean Houses bring the beachfront and all its magic to your doorstep. Embrace lapping waves, floury white sands, and softly swaying palms, all wrapped up in the comforting sense of calm that oozes from seaside air. These pockets of paradise sit quietly on their very own secluded sandscapes, creating the perfect small and personal sanctuary for ever-lasting memories.

Huddled around Maldivian shores, this collection of 26 villas is the pinnacle of beauty. Wake up to lavish décor, plush furnishings, and open, sun-drenched spaces, including living rooms, dining areas, private sun decks and infinity pools. It’s the perfect setting to spend leisurely days, accompanied by daily complimentary inclusions insisting you don’t lift a finger. A daily tailor-made breakfast, full butler service, sunrise yoga and sundowner cocktails at the Naiboli pool bar are just some of the perks.

While finetuning these subtler details, The Nautilus resort also takes care of the larger components of your trip; the restaurants you’ll frequent and the array of activities such as snorkelling and watersports. Enjoy delicious, globally inspired cuisine at any of the three restaurants, loosen up with a calming treatment at the Solasta Spa, or master a new skill in the multipurpose sports arena. Young guests have plenty to explore too, from Young Wonderers for the little ones, to educational activities for teens.

Like the sea’s rolling tides, The Nautilus moves freely, neglecting rigid itineraries and for a personalised luxury stay. Menus are a suggestion; you’re free to create your own dishes and to dine anytime and anywhere you please. There are no clocks, no set opening times, no fixed dining hours, no schedules for services and experiences. Your stay is entirely yours to define and refine against a consistent backdrop of sweeping beaches and dazzling blues.

The Nautilus is comprised of 26 ultra-private beach and overwater houses, each enclosing its own version of paradise. Spacious bedrooms, en-suite bathrooms, outdoor showers, separate living rooms, a wide sundeck and a private temperature-controlled infinity pool are just some of the perks you’ll find inside. For any personal tweaks, your private butler will be ready and waiting to accommodate.

The Nautilus takes a holistic approach to sustainability.

During your stay, you’ll be offered the opportunity to adopt a coral frame to help preserve the reefs and can participate in an array of Maldivian traditions. Whether it’s visiting a local island or exploring a historic museum, culture is incorporated into as many experiences as possible. Not only that, but the resort operates on an environmentally smart basis as well – from ocean-approved chemical free cleaning products to replacing plastic with reclaimed wood.

The Nautilus is all about making special memories for families to share, with exclusive tailor-made experiences that simply can’t be forgotten. Sail the seas in a luxury yacht for an impromptu adventure. Take a dive into deep blue waters, or host a private party in your beach house, complete with live music, fresh seafood, and the people you hold most dear. Or make the most of a private cinema screening on a distant sandbank under starry skies.
