Make your way to the Maldives in luxurious style this August with Milaidhoo Island Maldives & The Nautilus Maldives’ exclusively chartered 100-seat private jet
Why opt for more leg room when you can covet an entire aircraft? Maldivian-owned Milaidhoo Island Maldives and The Nautilus Maldives have announced they have exclusively chartered a 100-seat private jet, in order to run a one-off flight from London to the Maldives this summer.
Fly in style
The A340 plane, featuring 100 flatbed business-class seats, will depart from London Stansted on 16th August – flying direct to Male and landing in paradise on 17th August 2020.
No ordinary aircraft, the plane is one of the largest private jets on the market and its spacious seating layout, combined with ample living space, promises an airy, comfortable environment for long-haul travel.
An expert team of flight attendants will ensure guest’s every need is taken care of on the journey – especially when it comes to in-flight fine dining. Exemplary cleanliness protocols are guaranteed, helping guests feel protected for the entire journey.
Upon arrival in Male, guests will be fast-tracked through security to the privately chartered domestic flight, which will transport them to the magical Baa Atoll. Every other row on the flight will be kept free, to ensure safe social distancing.
After an elongated lock down, escaping to sandy paradise has never felt so appealing. Guests can choose to stay at either Milaidhoo Island Maldives or The Nautilus for 14 nights on a half board basis.
Two of the most sought-after private island hotels in the Maldives, these boutique resorts are locally owned and known for offering some of the country’s most luxurious villa accommodation, designed to pay homage to their spectacular surroundings in the Baa Atoll.
The package for both includes a pampering spa treatment for every guest, as well as the once in a lifetime opportunity to visit Hanifaru Bay and the chance to swim with Manta Rays.
Alongside extensive new health and safety protocols, both resorts will be opening with reduced occupancy – ensuring an even more personalised and private experience for guests of this package.
The resorts will also offer in-villa dining options with no additional charge, if guests prefer to dine in the privacy of their villa.
Milaidhoo Island Maldives
Proudly rooted in the local island traditions, this authentic resort features 50 contemporary Maldivian style pool villas designed by a local architect, all open up 180 degrees into spacious outdoor living. This is one for the foodies – Milaidhoo is home to three world-class restaurants, including Ba’theli – the first modern Maldivian restaurant in the country.
Reflecting its heritage, it is built in the shape of three traditional dhoni boats that stand on stilts over the lagoon. Innovative and delicious menus are steeped in Maldivian tradition, with each dish inspired from the Maldivian Spice Route taking the taste buds back over 5,000 years.
As an adult only resort, Milaidhoo is also famed for its romance and destination dining offerings – any dream can become a reality, from sunset dolphin cruises to sailing to a deserted sandbank where a feast awaits.
The Nautilus Maldives
Think ultra-luxury, bohemian chic hideaway. Ideal for something exclusive, this highly personalised, immensely private Relais & Châteaux resort features only 26 beach and ocean houses.
Each suite-style sanctuary comes with a separate living room and has its own large temperature controlled private pool. There’s also your own dedicated private butler, because why not.
Dining here is “unscripted” and is about liberating the palate. The Nautilus’ three restaurants and two bars revel in the spontaneous, crafting bespoke culinary journeys tailored to each taste.
Families and groups can enjoy a host of activities, from Sandbank BBQ’s, water spots, private al fresco cinema screenings to breakfast aboard a luxury yacht. The underwater activities are not to be missed and the reefs surrounding The Nautilus promise to be some of the most fruitful in the Maldives, thanks to the resorts prime location in the Baa Atoll.
