News about Cora Cora Maldives, a five-star luxury resort set to October 1 2021, has us hankering to green light a Maldivian holiday experience ‘unlike anything the Maldives has ever seen…’

Located on the pristine Raa Atoll, this spectacular new resort comprises 100 modern villas, overlooking the sparkling waters of the Indian Ocean. Is this the ultimate idyllic, island escape you’ve been waiting for? 

45 minutes by seaplane from Velana International Airport or 30 minutes by domestic flight, followed by a 30-minute speedboat journey, the resort embraces contemporary architecture with vibrant interiors inspired by the colours synonymous with the Maldives

There’s a choice of five restaurants offering an enviable culinary experience. Sufra boasts a unique breakfast display and an a la carte and buffet, while Ginger Moon is an Asian restaurant, and Teien is a Japanese restaurant offering Teppanyaki, Sushi and Kushiyaki.

At the Italian Restaurant & Beach Club, there’s the Acquapazza serving meals and drinks throughout the day. Finally there’s My Coffee, a 24-hour purveyor of craft coffees, local snacks, ice creams and drinks.
