Cora Cora Maldives Becomes the Very First and Only Maldivian Resort to Have an All-Female Airport Welcome Team

Since its inception, Cora Cora Maldives has always been an innovator! It’s ‘It’s Freedom Time’ ethos is at the core of everything the luxury five-star resort does, and Cora Cora Maldives is proud to announce it is the very first and only resort in the destination to have an all-female airport welcoming team. Manager Rifga and her remarkable team of ladies; Jamsheedha, Nadheema, and Lomra are leading the way in Maldivian female empowerment. Aged between 25 and 34, the fabulous airport team is an inspiration to Maldivian women and young girls everywhere, illustrating that Maldivian women can have a successful career and hold management positions should they wish.

Cora Cora Maldives is changing the game and leading the charge for other resorts to (hopefully) follow. By ensuring an all-women team is on-hand at the airport to assist guests, not only are they providing their guests with exemplary customer service to start their holiday off in a relaxing manner, but they are also showing the entire world that female empowerment and equality is a top priority for Cora Cora Maldives.
