Luxury bohemian hideaway, The Nautilus Maldives, is delighted to welcome back guests from 1 September with thoughtfully refurbished facilities and elevated island paradise experiences. Taking the opportunity of the enforced closure to accentuate its uniquely ethereal aura even further, the resort has unveiled a series of product enhancements including inspiring new menus; a new expansion to the island’s alfresco grill, Ocaso; an air-conditioned space for yoga and fitness; and a new MUGA multi-sport court for guests to join in games. Guests travelling with extended family, friends or in a group can also book this liberating haven of barefoot indulgence exclusively, with private island buyouts available from 1 August 2020.

The only Relais & Châteaux member in the Maldives, The Nautilus is the realisation of a vision of life unbound; a place of possibility and unscripted luxury, where guests are free to do – and be – as they please. Casting off the anchor of inflexibility, rejecting the tyranny of timetables; The Nautilus liberates guests to enjoy a private island experience beyond the humdrum clockwatching constraints of opening hours and menus. Enjoying a remote setting in the stunning UNESCO Biosphere of Baa Atoll, The Nautilus is one of the smallest islands in the Maldives; a tropical haven of just 26 exceptionally spacious Houses and Residences, each with its own temperature-controlled freshwater infinity pool and extensive private decks, and attended by a dedicated House Master offering full butler services. The Nautilus epitomises spacious seclusion and sublime service, with consciously minimal interaction from the moment guests step off the plane at Velana International Airport and into the care of island’s exclusive, ultra-smooth and queue-free CIP transfer service.

During the extended hiatus, The Nautilus completed a beach and lagoon nourishment project to replenish and protect the shoreline and house reefs, ensuring generations of future guests can continue to explore and enjoy the island at its very best.  Outdoor ladders in all Ocean Houses and Residences have also been replaced with artisanal driftwood staircases, making it even more inviting for guests to descend into the pristine waters that surround the island.

The resort’s beachside Ocaso Grill will reopen with a fresh new look following an extension of the dining area, with a whimsical new beach hut providing increased space, comfort, and privacy for a memorable culinary experience. A new curated menu has also been introduced in all three of the resort’s restaurants, providing further epicurean inspiration for guests from intriguing infusions of Mediterranean and Arabic cuisine at Zeytoun; Japanese and Latin American creations at Ocaso; or global delicacies at Thyme.

The resort’s overwater Solasta Spa has been augmented with the addition of an air-conditioned space for yoga and fitness sessions, while guests and team members can now enjoy games such as futsal and badminton on the island’s brand new MUGA multi-sport court.
