Will it be safe to travel to the Maldives given the current situation? Part of the beauty and magic of The Nautilus Maldives is the island’s unparalleled location; set on its very own unspoiled and pristine white-sand Island and adorned with verdant endemic flora in the UNESCO Biosphere of the Baa Atoll. Boasting exclusivity and absolute privacy, the location of The Nautilus allows guests a greater sense of space and freedom — there are no crowded places in this staggeringly beautiful slice of paradise. The private location also means that there is strict control of the entry of personnel into the Island which is not accessible to just anyone, and because The Nautilus is one of the smaller resorts in the Maldives, the number of guests, even at full capacity, is kept low, which helps to lessen the overall risk. The Nautilus Maldives offers its guests CIP Service upon arrival at Velana International Airport and the CIP lounge personnel will welcome you on the runway as you disembark the aircraft and escort you to the CIP lounge. No queuing is required as all matters regarding immigration, baggage and customs will be handled for you by the CIP lounge personnel, further minimising your contact with other travellers. All you need to do is sit back, relax and indulge in delicious complimentary refreshments at the lounge while we take care of everything for you.

What is the resort’s cancellation policy in the event I choose to cancel my trip? We understand that you may need to change your travel plans due to COVID-19 related circumstances. In this case, we are happy to postpone your booking until 22 December 2022, subject to availability and any rate differences according to seasonal periods. More information is provided on the booking engine or contact us at Do I need a PCR test when arriving from another island/resort? We do not require a negative PCR test from guests arriving from other resorts (applicable to unvaccinated travellers as well). Is it possible to do a PCR test on The Nautilus? If your next destination or airline requires a PCR test before departure from the Maldives, we are happy to make arrangements for you, free of charge. You will receive the results within 24 hours of testing. You would not have to worry about the logistics as we will take care of it for you! What is the protocol if a guest suspects they might have the virus? If any guests exhibit any flu-like symptoms, coughing, sneezing or difficulty in breathing, our resident paramedic will be notified to attend to the guest in the privacy of their House or Residence. The paramedic will continuously monitor the guest whilst undertaking all due precautions and safety measures. What is the protocol if the guest exhibits COVID-19 related symptoms? The paramedic will immediately take the appropriate steps along with the management team to isolate the guest in a separate house. The guest will be then tested for COVID-19 via a PCR test. All other necessary steps will be taken based on the HPA protocol and advice.

Where can I find more information about travelling to The Nautilus Maldives and about onsite prevention? We are here to help you with whatever query you might have. For more information regarding preventative measures, you can contact our General Manager via email at Do you have any medical facilities available on the Island? We have a well-equipped first aid clinic as well as an experienced resident paramedic who is on call 24 hours a day. The nearest regional hospital is also a mere 20 minutes away by speed boat.
