Your bohemian hideaway in the Maldives, The Nautilus is a highly personalized, immensely private resort of 26 beach and ocean houses. A refuge beyond the bounds of time and expectations, where every moment is tailored to you. A celebration of the individual spirirt, The Nautilus gives you space – to share, to meet, to be yourself and to shape your own personal journey.
Inspired by the enduring form of the nautilus shell, each house and residence at The Nautilus is a distinct and sophisticated escape. Curved lines and spiralled elements echo throughout each space. Our philosophy, too, reiterates the timelessness and longevity of this icon of the deep.
