Nautilus exists seemingly beyond the boundaries of time, and you are free to indulge in champagne in bed or picnic under the stars at a moment’s notice. Ensconce yourself in pure comfort and luxury in one of the 26 villas, each of which comes with a turquoise pool and private butler to see to your every need.

Reconnect with yourself at the Nautilus Retreat and indulge in one of the many bespoke services from yoga and massage to healing steam baths. With a variety of villas to house couples, groups or families, The Nautilus is perfect for anyone, allowing you the freedom to do the unexpected, the freedom to simply be.

Why we love it

The Nautilus’ pioneering approach and emphasis on the freedom to eat when your hungry, sleep when you’re tired, and explore when you are feeling restless are how every travel experience should be. Offering you complete freedom, privacy, and comfort to live life as you wish is a luxury that is hard to find elsewhere.
