TO RECONNECT AND BOND WITH FAMILY MEMBERS THIS SUMMER
With summer vacation fast approaching, The Nautilus is delighted to offer families to break free and spend true quality time with loved ones with a holistic family escape at The Nautilus. With only 26 houses and residences, The Nautilus is your luxury bohemian hideaway in the Maldives, offering highly personalised and immensely private experiences tailored for you - ‘A World of Your Own Making’.
It is not always easy to find common ground, even within our own families, so quality time together is so important. The Nautilus’s family options are specifically designed to help you align and reconnect. Your ultra-luxury private island experience could begin with a personalised family session at Solasta Spa, where our knowledgeable therapists will suggest a gentle blend of spiritual, physical, and fun exercises, depending on your lifestyle, personality, and energy level. Special breathing exercises and meditation will help you tune on the same frequency.
You’ll learn how to be present in the here and now, let go of the past, and practise empathy and forgiveness, which is the most significant gift you can give to your family members and one of the best ways to reconnect. Learn to notice the smells, tastes, and sounds that you didn’t notice before, listen deeply and appreciate every family member exactly the way they are. Being truly present and deeply feeling your emotions will help you enjoy every moment together, fostering intimacy and bonding as nothing else can. When you are immersed into a tranquil state of mind, enjoy an aerial yoga session that even the youngest guests will find fun and enjoyable.
When all the senses are aligned and rebalanced, it is time for even more exciting, shared family experiences. Get together for a culinary journey inspired by the rich heritage of the cuisines of Maldivian and other neighbouring Southeast Asian countries. In an immersive cooking competition between your family members and guided by your personal chef, you can learn to prepare a menu with your selection of 3-4 dishes from your preferred countries. Along with the basic cooking techniques, you will learn about different spices and how to match them with ingredients. At the end of your culinary journey, you will receive a passport with the recipes and memorable stories to take with you to remember in the years to come.
Younger Nautilus guests are encouraged to grow in confidence, seek new opportunities and leave the island having developed 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 jewellery making, coconut painting and Dhalhu Vetti (Maldivian bowling), to underwater treasure hunts, storytelling and cinema nights. Young Wonderers 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 island’s offerings.
The highlight of your stay could be a one-of-a-kind family day spent on a close-by sandbank that creates memories you’ll cherish forever. Set sail on your luxury yacht and spend the day on a sandbank with a selection of water sports, fromjet skiing to taking your snorkelling experience to the next level with a Seabob. Play fun family games, paint your family artwork, put on your favourite songs and sing along for extra effect. Refuel with a delicious family picnic and barbeque prepared by your personal chef throughout the day. After dinner, gather round with a bowl of popcorn, roast marshmallows over the bonfire, and select your favourite movie for a night that’s sure to please the whole family.
A professional photo/videographer can capture your family journey to ensure that you can draw on all these meaningful, shared experiences forever.
Your personal House Master, providing full butler service, will ensure that all your needs are accommodated and curate your unforgettable island escapade.
