The Nautilus Maldives is transforming the ultra-luxury experience through its offer of ‘absolute freedom’. The 26-house private island owned by a Maldivian hotelier and founding father of tourism in the region, will offer guests a sanctuary free from space and time, promising to indulge every desire.
Conceived as the ultimate retirement vision, the tiny private island – only 250 metres in diameter – is designed to resemble an exclusive private home with each house and residence custom designed to include one, two or three spacious bedrooms, a separate living room, expansive sundeck and private pool. Ocean views satisfy the eye in every direction with a backdrop of dense tropical landscape and a thriving reef just metres from the shoreline.
In order to ensure the freedom philosophy is upheld, each property boasts a private House Master to realise guests’ desires at every stage and ensure each exacting detail is to their liking. Flexibility is key, with the three restaurants offering suggested menus intended merely to spark a conversation. Guests are encouraged to explore their appetite to find true satisfaction with dining available in whatever location of the island takes their fancy.
Situated within a thriving UNESCO biosphere reserve, the island’s surrounding natural reef is just 15 metres from shore and plays host to some of the world’s most spectacular marine life. The on-site marine biologist will play a crucial role in ensuring the long-lasting health of the reef and its inhabitants, with aquatic expeditions for guests organised to suit everyone from experienced divers to novice snorkelers. Manta rays, whale sharks and the endangered green turtles are just a few of the island’s neighbours known to frequent the waters.
The spa and wellness menu will showcase the best the planet has to offer, with sunrise and sunset yoga, daily meditation and drop-in spa appointments as and when the mood strikes. A team of experts will be in situ throughout the year, equipping those who wish to learn with the tools to take their new-found fulfilment with them beyond the island’s perimeter.
