These small is­lands are larger than life

Esquire Middle East - - SHOOT -

THE MAL­DIVES is al­ready well-re­garded when it comes to lux­ury travel. It’s one of the most vis­ited lo­ca­tions in the world, and the tourist trade — es­pe­cially that of lux­ury — makes up a huge por­tion of the is­land ar­chi­pel­ago’s yearly in­come. And for good rea­son. There’s some­thing about the coun­try’s pic­turesque blue wa­ters and trop­i­cal is­land life­style that ap­peals in to­day’s busy world. Which is why more than

1.4 mil­lion tourists flock to Mal­dives’ re­sorts each year.

But not all re­sorts are cre­ated equal.

The Nau­tilus Mal­dives was de­signed for a new gen­er­a­tion of lux­ury trav­el­ers in mind, those who ex­pect more than just a great sun tan and a swim in the sea. Lo­cated in the Baa Atoll — a UN­ESCO World Bio­sphere — this se­cluded re­sort is where lux­ury abounds in ways you might not ex­pect. The re­sort’s res­tau­rants have no open­ing hours — you can have break­fast where you want, and when you want. There are no dress codes on the is­land, be­cause here ev­ery guest’s free­dom is para­mount. Key to that free­dom is each guest’s House Master (but­ler), who ar­ranges each and ev­ery be­spoke ex­pe­ri­ence; from pri­vate pic­nic’s on the re­sort’s yacht to din­ner and drinks on a se­cluded part of the beach un­der the stars.
