3rd February 2019 On a perfect sunny Sunday afternoon, The Nautilus Maldives welcomed its first guests, ushering in a new world of luxury in Baa Atoll.
The nautilus Maldives is a bohemian hideaway located in Baa Atoll, a UNESCO biosphere reserve. A wonderland of incredible marine life awaits discovery.
The vision of The Nautilus is to join the select group of private island recognized as the best in the world. With its modern bohemian style, and concept of absolute freedom for its guests, who enjoy no rules, no dress codes, no set restaurant hours, no fixed menu choices, its driving philosophy is to make guests feel not only completely at home, but as if time itself no longer exists. As a result, a stay at The Nautilus is noticeably different from anywhere else: here service is truly bespoke and activities follow the lead of the natural rhythms of nature and desire of the guests.
The entire team welcomed the first guests with champagne, Bodu Beru and ribbon cutting ceremony, 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 comes alight, giving the appearance of rising out of the water.
A spectacular day, promising many more such in the years to come as this new star in the Maldives makes its mark.
