The Nautilus Maldives begins talent search with open day on Sept 2
The Nautilus Maldives has begun its search for outstanding talent with an open recruitment day, as the resort prepares to welcome its first guests in January 2019.
The day-long recruitment event will be held on September 2 at the Hotel Jen in capital Male. Doors open at 9am and remain open until 6pm.
The Nautilus is looking for talents in all departments: housekeeping, guest service, butlers, spa, laundry, water sports and diving, accounts, HR, reservations, kitchen, F&B, stewarding, engineering, gardening, security, boat crew and IT. The new recruits will be expected to join in time for several months’ intensive training for the private island’s soft-opening in November.
“Finding the right people to deliver our concept is a key focus for us and we’re confident that we’ll find who we’re looking for in the Maldives,” Executive Director Markus W Iseli, who will be at the forefront of the recruitment day event, was quoted in a statement, as saying.
“We’re looking for people with a genuine passion and excitement about working in hospitality.”
The vision of The Nautilus is to join the select group of resorts recognised as the best in the world. With its modern bohemian style, and concept of absolute freedom for its guests (who enjoy no rules, no dress codes, no set restaurant hours, no fixed menu choices), hiring people to deliver that level of personalised service is a serious matter. The Nautilus acknowledges how important it is to find hotelier professionals at every level who understand how to make guests feel not only completely at home, but also as if time itself no longer exists.
With only 26 beach and ocean houses on a tiny coral reef-encircled island, The Nautilus is a bohemian hideaway located in Baa atoll, a UNESCO biosphere reserve. Here, a kaleidoscopic wonderland of incredible marine life awaits discovery: trips to world-renowned Hanifaru Bay to swim amongst whale sharks and manta rays; diving on iridescent coral reefs; exploring remote sandbanks and deserted islands or just cruising the ocean on a custom-built yacht are amongst the many adventures guests can look forward to.
At the three restaurants and poolside bar at The Nautilus, guests can explore ‘unscripted dining’, meaning the freedom to order off menu if that’s how they feel. The Nautilus is a world where a menu is just a place to gather inspiration and meals are designed for the guest, whenever they want to eat. Dining, for those wishing to follow chef’s suggestions, include intriguing infusions of Mediterranean and Middle Eastern cuisine at the over-water signature restaurant; elegant simplicity with Japanese and Latin-American creations at the grill; and global delicacies at the all-day dining restaurant.
The Nautilus sets guests on their own path to wellness, drawing on ancient wisdoms and modern innovations for a transformative journey in its four treatment rooms in the heart of the island. The spa specialises in the bespoke, designing wellness programmes and daily rituals that refresh and relax, pamper and protect.
