The island of The Nautilus, a luxury private island,is now open for booking your client’s next escape. The property is getting ready to open for private island buy-outs, or for guests traveling with extended family, friends or in a group.

Located in the stunning Baa Atoll of the Maldives, in the heart of a UNESCO Biosphere, The Nautilus’ remote setting and size (one of the smallest islands in the Maldives) make this tropical haven one of the safest places to be right now. The already thorough cleaning and hygiene protocols in place across the luxury resort in the Maldives have been further reinforced in line with the public health guidelines issued by the WHO, as well as by national authorities. The entire team at The Nautilus is fully trained and informed with these new protocols. In addition, the island has curated it’s very own travel guide for guests to highlight exactly what they are doing to maintain guests’ relaxation and safety as paramount.

The Nautilus has also recently undertaken a major CSR initiative to support the local community, especially the people of Baa atoll, by funding the installation of a PCR testing facility in a specially created area within the healthcare center on Dharavandhoo Island where all testing will be carried out by the health center. This is one of the only PCR testing facilities within the Baa atoll and the facility is located just 20 minutes by luxury yacht from The Nautilus. In addition to providing COVID-19 testing for guests and staff of The Nautilus on a complimentary basis, the facility will also cater to the testing needs of the local community members. Any revenue generated by this initiative goes directly to the health center of Dharavandhoo.

With just 26 incredibly spacious Houses and Residences on the island, each with private, freshwater temperature-controlled infinity pools, extensive private decks, as well as a personal House Master offering exclusive full butler services, The Nautilus is perfect for a private family retreat or an escape with a conscious lack of interaction with others in order to honor safety under the current climate. The Nautilus Maldives’ private seaplane is available to fly guests directly from the airport to the island, avoiding any unnecessary contact with anyone. Upon arrival at Velana International Airport, all guests are picked up directly from the aircraft and individually escorted to the exclusive CIP lounge (Maamehi Executive Lounge), regardless of the House category booked. No queuing is required as all matters regarding immigration, baggage, which will be disinfected for you, and customs will be handled by the VIP lounge personnel, further minimizing contact with other travelers.

While on the island, guests will enjoy a la carte dining anywhere, anytime with no additional incurrences. At The Nautilus there are no set opening and closing times for the island’s three restaurants; travelers can come as they please with plenty personal space. All adventures offered allow guests to embark free of time restraints and completely private to your clients and their loved ones.

The team at The Nautilus have not only used this time away from the bustling world to reflect and realign, but have also completed an abundance of enhancements to the island to accentuate The Nautilus’ ethereal aura even more. Despite menus at The Nautilus’ being mere suggestions, new menus for all three restaurants have been introduced providing guests further epicurean inspiration. There is also a new expansion to the Ocaso restaurant, the island’s alfresco grill. And an additional whimsical hut upon the beach adds to this sensational dining setting.

With exploration and liberation at the heart of The Nautilus’ core, they have replaced the Ocean House’s and Residence’s outdoor ladders to artisanal drift-wood staircases, making it even more tempting to dip into the waters that surround the island. The Nautilus’ dedicated team also have new multi-sports pitch where the island welcomes its guests to join in the games.
