Property Highlights

The stand out feature of the Nautilus is without a doubt the villas and the impressive architecture. Described as ‘a bohemian castle on the beach’, it is evident that real thought and care went into the designs as everything is based around the Nautilus seashell shape with spiralling circles in perfect symmetry.

The Nautilus is certainly the most exclusive of the barefoot resorts in the Maldives. Perfectly classy and elegant, it is one of the best 5 star plus getaway on a small island which is very laid back and quiet but still very luxurious. To top it off, opt for their own branded private seaplane experience too for an extra memorable holiday!
