The Nautilus Maldives has partnered with the world’s top ranked destination spa and wellness retreat, Ananda in The Himalayas, to offer a first of its kind wellbeing experience.

Meanwhile, The Nautilus is known as one the most bespoke private island experiences and its “anytime, anywhere, as you please” concept of hospitality, set against the magical backdrop of the Baa Atoll in the Maldives, beckons guests to come as they are.
