We sincerely believe that, among all the luxurious resorts in the Maldives, The Nautilus makes you feel like the only person on the island. Simply Heaven!

There are no watches everywhere on the island because time is never an issue and you can eat whenever you want to. utter rapture You push yourself to convince yourself that this isn't a dream before asking what the supper times are so you won't miss the final call. In any event, time cannot be understood on the island. breakfast served at 1:00 as you monitor stream slack? Check. A 2 a.m. spa treatment? Clearly!!

Bistros offer flexible hours; for instance, breakfast may be needed at any time of day, even outside the restaurant if the customer prefers to have it in bed or by their private pool. All three bistros will have menus, but these are viewed as starting points for a conversation with the connoisseur master about what the guest should eat rather than as a set of restrictions on what may be said. Giving up time, putting your watch aside, and simply accepting the status quo and the rhythm of your internal clock are freeing.

The Nautilus Maldives has been planned for the era of overabundant explorers who are seeking significant experiences and endeavours that they may impart to the people who matter most to them.

A stay here isn't exactly comparable to a stay elsewhere.

This viewpoint has proposed reevaluating how a crowded hotel is hurried to organise its departments around the guest and ignore conventional working methods. As evidenced by the hotel, organisation is led by the House Commanders (stewards), who oversee everything related to ceding to receptionists, orderlies, venture directors, etc. Private pools, ocean views from every home, delicate sandy coasts with dense tropical vegetation, and a beautiful coral reef literally metres from the island's shoreline are among these highlights. The small island of Thiladhoo, which was at first a remote location and was estimated to be only 250 metres in size for habitation, is home to a significant portion of its distinctive local plants and trees.

At The Nautilus Maldives, a stunning wonderland of incredible marine life awaits discovery: excursions to the well-known Hanifaru Sound, where guests can swim with whale sharks and manta rays, bounce on brilliant coral reefs, explore distant sandbars and remote areas, or simply cruise the ocean on a luxurious yacht, are just a few of the experiences visitors can anticipate.

From the GM to the personnel at the bistro, everyone is welcoming and attractive. Whether it's the personnel at the café, housekeeping, the watersports group, or someone else,... Everyone is enticing you with a big smile and a few witty remarks. Practically no wish is impossible to realise.
