The Nautilus Maldives was inaugurated on 3 February 2019 bringing a new world of luxury tourism to Baa Atoll. Nautilus Maldives’ first guests were welcomed by the entire team of the resort with champagne, traditional Bodu Beru. A ribbon cutting ceremony was also held with the highlight being the ‘first steps’ on the island by guests.

Celebrations continued on to the evening with sunset cocktails and the first ever ‘Nautilus Rising’ ceremony as the distinctive nautilus shell in the pool gradually came alight, giving the appearance of rising out of the water.

With its modern bohemian style and concept of absolute freedom for its guests, who enjoy no rules, no dress codes, the vision of The Nautilus Maldives is to join the select group of private islands recognized as the best of the best in the world. With no set restaurant hours and no fixed menu choices, its driving philosophy is to make guests feel not only completely at home, but also as if time itself no longer exists.

With only 26 beach and ocean houses on a tiny coral reef-encircled island, The Nautilus Maldives is located in Baa Atoll, a UNESCO biosphere reserve. The island is described as a kaleidoscopic wonderland of incredible marine life. Trips to the world-renowned Hanifaru Bay area to swim amongst manta rays; diving on iridescent coral reefs; exploring remote sandbanks and deserted islands or just cruising the ocean on a custom-built yacht are just some of the many adventures guests can look forward to.
