The Nautilus Maldives is calling families to come together for a crafted island adventure like no other with its new ‘Family Reunions and Reconnections’ package. Spanning treasure hunts and den-building, cooking classes and jewelry making to meditation, movie nights and Maldivian bowling, the new package includes a host of exclusive benefits and exquisite moments designed to nurture and reforge family bonds across the generations after months cooped up at home.
Offering an ultra-exclusive resort experience in the stunning UNESCO Biosphere Reserve of Baa Atoll, the resort’s 26 private and spacious Houses and Residences – including three two-bedroom residences and the awe-inspiring two-story, three-bedroom Nautilus Mansion – all feature expansive living and outdoor spaces and a large private temperature-controlled freshwater infinity pool, making them ideal for families. Uniquely for The Maldives, a dedicated private butler is allocated to each House, at every room category, anticipating and taking care of every whim and need whenever they arise.
The Nautilus Maldives: The Family Reunions and Reconnections Package
The Nautilus has lovingly crafted its new ‘Family Reunions and Reconnections’ package to bring families together through the magic of shared experiences. In an immersive cooking masterclass with a private chef, families can team up to create new family favorite dishes together; go head-to-head, each generation preparing a different course to wow their loved ones; or simply relax and enjoy an afternoon of gastronomic wonder. The Nautilus chefs are especially attuned to the tastes of young guests and relish creating mouthwatering children’s menus and inspiring, age-appropriate Mini Chef experiences – from making dough or learning professional cupcake decoration, to understanding basic knife skills.
At the island’s open-air ‘Cinema Under the Stars’, a specially curated Originals vs Remakes movie program invites families to compare all-time classics with the latest reboots – complete with popcorn and a freshly prepared dinner. Parents can also enjoy a night off to themselves thanks to ‘Sleepover at Grandparents’ House’ – a fun-packed evening of karaoke, board games, story books, den-building and more, all fueled by an array of irresistible snacks and treats.
Holidays at The Nautilus are perfect for all ages, creating a world where teenage beach bonfires and children’s pirate playdates are as important as the grownups’ holistic Solasta Spa journeys, Maldivian cookery masterclasses or vintage wine tastings with the resident sommelier. Adventurous young guests are encouraged to grow in confidence, seek new opportunities and leave with new passions.
A playful, educational hub at the heart of the island, the Young Wonderers club offers a rich collection of activities for children aged 11 and under, from local jewelry making, coconut painting and Dhalhu Vetti (Maldivian bowling), to underwater treasure hunts, storytelling and cinema nights. A complimentary 60-minute child’s spa experience is also included with the ‘Family Reunions and Reconnections’ package, providing a relaxing introduction to the benefits of self-care; child-friendly treatments at the island’s Solasta Spa include head and shoulder massages and mini-manicures and pedicures.
The Young Wonderers club also offers an array of engaging activities for guests aged 12 years and up, from yoga and meditation classes, mocktail mixology and interactive cooking classes; to watersports including PADI Discover Scuba Diving, SUP lagoon races and learning to swim like a mermaid. Young adults are encouraged to move at their own pace and in their own time, engaging independently with the islands’ offerings – but for those preferring a more structured schedule, dedicated House Masters can also tailor-make an enriching, holistic program of activities. Children can discover the importance of healthy eating with home economics; learn about the Maldives’ history, culture and language; or discover the underwater world with a marine biology class.
Venture forth, and slip the bounds of time…
For truly bespoke experiences, families can enjoy private BBQ picnics on The Nautilus’ secluded sandbank and sunset fishing to guided snorkeling tours of Hanifaru Bay, a famous nursery ground for manta rays. The resort’s privately owned, air-conditioned 54-foot luxury yacht, Nautilus One, fully equipped with high-spec fittings and furnishings, and private liveried seaplane, are available for exclusive charter to explore the Indian Ocean either by sea or air.
Providing an opportunity to forge memories that live on long beyond their departure from The Nautilus, families are also invited to adopt and name their very own coral frame as part of the resort’s coral replanting program. Guests can monitor their adopted frame’s progress via regular online updates from the resident Marine Biologist, whilst simultaneously learning about the importance of protecting the world’s oceans.
For true adrenalin chasers, The Nautilus’ new Skydiving package promises a bucket-list experience like no other. Ideal for professional licensed skydivers, extreme adventure enthusiasts to first timers who can tandem jump with a seasoned instructor. Jumping from 12,000 feet, skydivers will enjoy 360-degree views of the breathtaking Baa Atoll and landing safely on the beach of The Nautilus Maldives.
Exclusively for multi-generational families, The Nautilus’ Family Reunions and Reconnections package starts from 80,500 USD including seven nights B&B accommodation for four adults and two children (under 12 years); return transfers via The Nautilus’ liveried private seaplane; complimentary Kids Menu dining for up to two children (under 12 years); and an array of bespoke experiences including a multigenerational menu masterclass, private Originals vs Remakes open-air movie night, a ‘Sleepover at Grandparents’ House’, coral frame adoption and a 60-minute child’s spa treatment.
