About Cora Cora
Rediscover the joy of life without limits at the exclusive Cora Cora Maldives private island - one of Raa Atoll’s newest resorts. Footloose and fancy-free is the philosophy here, with flip-flops favoured over formal wear and the freedom to indulge at any hour of the day or night. Cora Cora’s highly-skilled team members also help to infuse the island with good-time vibes that can be felt everywhere, from the beaches and bars to the wellness facilities and watersports centre. The resort’s premium all-inclusive concept allows guests to really make the most of their stay, with gourmet meals at restaurants and all the island activities and watersports you can handle.
Nearly a millennia ago, the island on which Cora Cora stands, Raa Maamigili, lay at the bustling heart of one of the world’s most important spice routes, welcoming ships as they crossed between Lebanon in the west and India or Sri Lanka in the east. Cora Cora values this authenticity and delivers a healthy dose of culture alongside its other indulgences. Excavations here have revealed more than 60 artifacts, which the resort has supplemented with fascinating relics from elsewhere in the Maldives, creating a Museum of Island Heritage - the first of its kind in the Maldives.
Explore the resort
Cora Cora’s four restaurants deliver a carefully curated menu of complementary cuisines creating a melting pot of flavours. Feel the energy of an Asian street market, explore the flavours of ancient spice routes, romance the night away in a seductive teppanyaki restaurant, or embrace the glamour of an Italian beach club. And, as night falls, the atmosphere kicks up a notch, with music by DJs or local artists setting the scene for lively nights.
If you’re looking to relax, head to the MOKSHA spa where you can rejuvenate and unwind with Asian-inspired treatments in an over-water spa suite. Guests can also slow down and stretch out with mind-calming yoga sessions in a purpose-built pavilion. Other scheduled activities include meditation, qigong, tai chi, breathwork, sound healing, and more. This resort will also be the first in the Maldives to offer a licensed art gallery and museum, complete with over 400 local artifacts.
In need of something more vigorous? Burn off some energy whenever the urge strikes you in the 24/7 fitness centre, and max out your workout with expert input from a personal trainer.
