The Nautilus, Maldives
Superbly tucked away among the turquoise waters of the Baa Atoll, The Nautilus presents a sensational bohemian hideaway.
The boutique resort is home to 26 beach and ocean houses, each with private pools, spacious living spaces and a dedicated villa host. Beach Houses step directly out onto the sand whilst Ocean Houses gaze directly onto a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve, where shoals of fish dart through the shallows.
Discover holistic healing at Solstace Spa, which plays host to an array of natural treatments based on the art of ritual and sunrise yoga classes with an ocean backdrop.
Adventurers are called to the seas for snorkelling and diving with the resident marine biologist. Or simply sit back and watch the sun setting over the horizon on a private yacht.
Irresistibly fresh dishes served across The Nautilus’ three restaurant bring a world of flavour to your plate. Meanwhile, private sandbank barbeques and breakfast out on a sail boat bring enchantment to your time away.
