Two Maldives Resorts Fund Establishment of COVID-19 Testing Facility

(The Nautilus Maldives)

The Nautilus Maldives has joined forces with Milaidhoo Island Maldives to fund the establishment of a COVID-19 testing facility in conjunction with the local council on Dharavandoo Island. The islands where each resort is located, along with Dharavandoo Island, are all located within the Baa atoll of the Maldives. The facility became fully operational on November 10. Now, The Nautilus provides COVID-19 testing for guests and staff directly at the island resort with results being delivered within 24 hours.

Dharavandhoo Island also houses the domestic airport within the Baa atoll region and is available to reach within 15 minutes via The Nautilus’ luxury speedboat. As part of the initiative, The Nautilus has also funded a physical extension of the existing health center on Dharavandoo in order for the PCR testing service to have its own completely separate facility.

In addition to facilitating complimentary COVID-19 testing for guests and staff of both The Nautilus and Milaidhoo, the initiative also helps to cater to the testing needs of the local population.
