Authentically Maldivian: Milaidhoo & Nautilus

10 days£2250

Nearly all of the luxury resorts in the Maldives are foreign owned. As the Maldives is a magnet for high-end tourism, many hotel brands and entrepreneurs have opened dazzling resorts. For a more authentically Maldivian experience, we’ve chosen two incredible properties. One of them is Maldivian-owned and designed – it also has an authentic Maldivian restaurant. The other is an intimate luxury resort with a classic Maldivian feel.

You can combine both of these resorts on a single trip. Both are easily accessible by seaplane from Male Airport. You can transfer between the resorts by seaplane of speedboat.

Itinerary In Detail

Water villa

Milaidhoo Island

Milaidhoo Island is one of the few Maldivian-owned luxury resorts. It gives you a more authentic taste of Maldivian culture. What’s more, it boasts the only Maldivian restaurant in the Maldives. A welcome team will meet you at Male Airport and prepare your seamless transition by seaplane to the resort.

This is a tiny private island; you’ll really get the feel of a remote tropical paradise. The hotel was designed by a local architect, giving you that added authentic touch. Although the island is small, Beach Pool Villas provide you with your own strip of private beach. The thatched roof villas are all impeccably designed.

The Nautilus Maldives

The Nautilus Maldives

Nautilus is a classic luxury resort in the Maldives. It’s just a 30-minute ride by seaplane from the airport. This is an intimate resort with just 26 “houses”. Nautilus has beachside villas and also overwater villas on stilts in the lagoon. Calling them “houses” makes sense as they do feel very homely. They all have private pools and direct lagoon access.

All of the villas are oversize. The overwater villas have the added touch of glass floored living rooms, giving you sweeping views of the lagoon. It’s located on Thiladhoo island in the Baa Atoll – you can easily access the dive sites nearby. Nautilus is a very personalised and classically Maldivian resort.
