Celebrations are underway in the pristine Raa Atoll as Cora Cora Maldives is awarded the highly-acclaimed “Recommended” label by Forbes Travel Guide, an independent global rating award body that celebrates the very best hotels, restaurants, and spas in the luxury travel industry. 

Cora Cora Maldives offers its guests a truly immersive Maldivian cultural, experiential, and culinary experience. The dedicated staff are on hand to provide an unforgettable getaway from the moment they touch ground at the airport with their all-female Airport Team, continuing to arrival at the island and the rest of their stay. Extraordinary customer service and impressive facilities embody the freedom ethos across the resort from the tranquil MOKSHA® Spa & Wellbeing Centre to the fascinating Dutch Onion® Museum, to the four restaurants and two bars offering delicious à-la-carte dining cuisine.

As a General Manager, my priority is ensuring the staff are happy, guests are satisfied, and an incredible experience can be enjoyed by everyone on the island. Receiving this coveted annual rating shows that our hard work has paid off and I am looking forward to continuing to provide a one-of-a-kind adventure to our guests,” delights Justin Swart, General Manager of Cora Cora Maldives. 

For over 65 years, Forbes Travel Guide has rated almost 2,000 hotels, restaurants, spas, and ocean cruises in over 81 countries by sending professional inspectors to experience properties and evaluate the hotels based on 900 standards. Considered the pinnacle of achievement in the travel industry, attaining the “Recommended” label from Forbes Travel Guide takes time, attention to detail, and an admirable dedication to customer service by a hotel’s team. This comprehensive verification system assesses the customer service, facilities, and overall feel of the property and abides by the mantra “how the visit makes you feel is what you will remember most”.
